  • DeCarlo Rules: What I don't understand is why they're trying to discourage subscriptions to B&V FRIENDS Jumbo digest. It's been published at 10 times per year frequency for the last 3 years -- just like the other B&V jumbo digest. So if they're both published just as often, why do they offer a choice of 10 issue or 20 issue subscriptions for BETTY & VERONICA, but only a 6 issue subscription for B&V FRIENDS? You can get a 12-issue subscription to B&V FRIENDS on the website, but if I remember correctly, the printed ad for subs only offers the 6-issue sub option. Why isn't it the same option as the other digests (10 issues or 20 issues), if they're all published 10 times a year? And they ARE.

  • Tuxedo Mark: Just looked at Archie Comics' subsciption page. Archie Meets Batman '66 is a six-issue miniseries. Archie 1941 is a five-issue miniseries. There's a six-issue subscription for Betty and Veronica: Friends Forever and Vixens (surprisingly; might get transferred to the new B&V title) and a twelve-issue subscription for Riverdale. Riverdale Digest isn't listed, so it looks like it's been cancelled.

  • CAPalace: I'm a woman btw and I'm just so sick of the blatant anti-men thing going on in comics these days. It's not doing women any favors either. :/
    July 09, 2018, 09:05:40 PM
  • CAPalace: They're banking on Archie 700 to sell a lot because "lol a new number wow lol" and it will for the first issue but it'll just go back to the average/poor numbers it had before. And YOU KNOW with that writer on B+V it's going to turn into an anti-men, oooh girl power lol violence against men and demeaning men is feminism and fun lol lol Good luck. I'll stick to Ebay to find the DeCarlo stuff thanks.

  • Tuxedo Mark: I'm looking forward to the new B&V series. Personally, I think that previous B&V series by what's-his-name was way worse than anything that Rotante wrote on Vixens.
    July 09, 2018, 08:43:47 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: So, so predictable... they love to exploit NUMBERS, whether it's a single digit (1 or 0) or a triple-digit ending in 00. Good lord, I can't believe they're actually giving Jamie Rotante ANOTHER B&V series to write ruin! She is the worst I've read -- although it's a tough call, Marguerite Bennett was pretty horrible as well. Nick Spencer can actually be quite good as a writer... or pretty bad, depending on the character and the direction. He was great on ANT-MAN and SUPERIOR FOES OF SPIDER-MAN (both books that had a strong humorous subtext), and not so hot on CAPTAIN AMERICA and THE AVENGERS. And he's he new writer on (yet another) first issue of THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, so I wouldn't guess the ARCHIE gig will last. ACP could probably only afford to hire him for that ONE issue, #700.

  • Vegan Jughead: ARCHIE isn't on hiatus officially. The last official word from Archie Comics is that there is "big news about the flagship ARCHIE title" coming up after the "1941" miniseries. We'll see. RIVERDALE is supposed to come back early '19 after the TV show returns.

  • Mr.Lodge: Think it's time for new leadership, especially in the creative front?
    July 05, 2018, 03:09:04 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: I guess there's still THE HUNGER and VAMPIRONICA, but they're still so new that it's hard to think of them as "ongoing".
    July 05, 2018, 12:14:16 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: So both ARCHIE and RIVERDALE are "on hiatus"? That means ACP has no ongoing floppy comic titles. Not a good sign. Good thing they still have the digests going (knock on wood).

Only filling in on JUGHEAD for 2 issues, or is he the new regular artist on the book?
Either way, it's a step in the right direction which makes me ask why they didn't just hire him in the first place.

He draws cute art. I'm gonna start picking up Jughead again.

And to answer your question why he wasn't hired in the first place: nepotism.

I think Erica is working on a book so she probably will be back.

Erica Henderson's related to one of the editors at Archie?

That's what I'm asking. irishmoxie says it's nepotism, and that's when you hire (or promote) your relatives. That kind of thing sort of goes without saying when the publishing company is family owned and passed down (through several generations of Goldwaters and Silberkleits), but I'm asking who is Erica Henderson related to that she got hired because of nepotism?

Her dad worked for Archie for a bit but I'm sure he had connections into the comic world that helped her get where she is today. It certainly isn't her art which ranges from ugly to even worse inconsistent as people on here have pointed out.

Her dad wrote only a handful of stories for Archie, and that was back in the early 1990s. He also died a year or two back, before Erica really had any breaks in the industry. I'm sure he gave her some tips on how to submit work to publishers, but C. J. Henderson was never actually a huge name as a writer, either of prose or of comics -- he was kind of working the low end of both fields, although he managed to get a fair number of books published over a couple of decades or so, but it's not like we're talking about Stephen King or (for Archie Comics) George Gladir or something. His last comic work was for Moonstone Books, about as low on the comic publishing scale as you can get while still being distributed by Diamond.

You and I may not like her work (and I certainly don't find her style appropriate for JUGHEAD), but you have to acknowledge that someone does. She was nominated twice for the 2016 Eisner awards -- once for best new series (for The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl) and once for best penciller/inker.  Ergo, the work she's getting is on her own merit.
