  • 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.

    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).

Digital Exclusives
« on: June 18, 2016, 06:30:01 PM »
I had this topic on the old forum, but in case people were still interested, here it is again. Comics.org won't let me list digital comics so I'll put it on here instead.

Here is one I tabulated recently. The collections I choose to put up on here are in no particular order. Just whatever ones I've read/are interested in. Sorry for the formatting. This looked better on my word doc. If you want a synopsis of the stories, visit comics.org. If there was no synopsis on that site, I included it here.

As we were discussing the indexing of stories by theme in another thread, it occurs to me that they could never have foreseen the need to sort stories quite this specifically in the pre-digital era. While stories from the DE collections "Lifeguards on Duty" and "Just Keep Swimming" could easily have found their way into a "Summer Fun" reprint collection issue, they would never have considered putting out something like a reprint comic composed of all Thanksgiving stories. Some of those stories might easily be included in digest issues shipping in late October or early November, but the thought of filling an entire digest issue with them would not even be seriously considered. It's only the constant need to generate new DE thematic collections (to differentiate them from a standard digest assortment of stories) that leads to a need for indexing the plot content of the stories in the first place.

A lot of these are Valentine's Day themed stories. The ones that aren't are about dating.

Pep Digital #38 Archie’s Sweet Hearts 154 pg.

The Art of the Heart By a Not-So-Stupid Cupid (Betty and Veronica) 5 pg. from ??? I think this is Bob Bolling or maybe Holly G.
Narrated by a Cupid like character who discusses his adventures with shooting arrows at the Riverdale gang.

Queen of Hearts (Betty’s Diary) 5 pg. from Betty’s Diary #24.
Love and More Love (Archie) 5 pg. from Archie #255. *not a Valentine’s Day story*

Special Delivery part 1, The Chocolate Drop part 2 (Betty and Veronica) 12 pg. from Betty and Veronica #62.

Valentine Mix Up (Moose) 6 pg. from Archie’s Pals ‘n’ Gals DD #128. Probably a Fernando Ruiz story based on the strong jaw lines.

Date Night Plight! (Jughead) 6 pg. from ?? Jughead’s parents go out on a date. *not a Valentine’s Day story* Looks like DeCarlo or Schulz

The Heart of the Matter (Little Archie) 7 pg. from Little Archie Giant Comics #18.

Arrow Talk (Archie) 6 pg. Lead story from Archie DD #240. So I’m thinking they did new lead stories in digests at least back to 2008.

Sweets to the Sweet (Jughead) 5 pg. from Jughead #179 (2nd series)

A Second Valentine’s Day (Jughead) 6 pg. from ?? Fernando Ruiz story.
Jughead writes an article about a Valentine’s Day for guys to receive candy from girls. A chocolate company gets ahold of the article and decides to advertise it as a real holiday.

Romance Is In the Air (Betty and Veronica) 6 pg. from ?? Slate/Kennedy story. *not a Valentine’s Day story*
While out shopping, Veronica keeps getting hit on by random guys. Betty is jealous. References the Tom Cruise/Katie Holmes proposal.

The Language of Love (Betty) 5 pg. from ?? Reprinted in B&V Friends DD #224.

Small Is Big (Archie) 6 pg. from Archie #554.

A Cupid Question Part 1 and 2 (Little Sabrina) 11 pg. from Sabrina # ??

Love At First Sight (Betty’s Diary) 5 pg. from Betty’s Diary # ??
Betty gets a crush on a guy at school and imagines what her grown up life would be like with him. *Not a Valentine’s Day story*

Love Is Nasty Part 1, 2, and 3 (Betty & Veronica & Cheryl Blossom) 20 pg. Part 1 is the lead story from Betty and Veronica Digest #180. Part 2 and 3 from ?? probably Betty and Veronica Digest #181. Part 3 is titled “How’s Tricks?” (Cheryl & Reggie). Part 2 is a Valentine’s Day story. Cheryl and Reggie start dating and Cheryl is crowned queen of the Valentine’s Day parade. In Part 3, Cheryl and Reggie continue dating and team up to pull pranks on everybody.
