  • DeCarlo Rules: It seems like they put extras on a disc because people expect them, or it helps drive sales, but more often than not, it seems like very little thought goes into the content. Of course there are some examples where the extras are exceptional, but usually that's not the case.

  • irishmoxie: I love digital movies and streaming. I usually get the Blu-ray Disc because I like to watch the extras the first time and then end up adding the digital code online or rip it and put it on the hard drive. Just much more convenient to stream it then search for the disc when I want to watch it.

  • DeCarlo Rules: On the other hand, maybe I should just bypass the Blu-Ray format altogether, buy a huge terabyte HD, and download everything. There's something to be said for that, in that you can get everything quicker and stacks of Blu-Ray cases aren't taking up space in your house, I guess.

  • DeCarlo Rules: This coming from a guy who still hasn't capitulated to the inevitable domination of Blu-Ray. It's getting to the point where I might have to relent, since I've seen some anime sets being released for the first time on Blu-Ray (no combo pak) with NO release of a DVD version.

  • DeCarlo Rules: I'll never get used to people not being able to wait a few days when they order stuff online. I guess maybe I could understand it IF it were something that there was no other way to see, but I assume you've already seen the episodes.  People who are that impatient usually don't even buy disc sets, they just buy it digitally or stream it.

  • DeCarlo Rules: The questions you ask about classic Archie (which is a cartoon on paper) are sort of "real-world logic" questions. A cartoon world, unlike the real world, creates its own rules and its own logic, nonsensical as that might be. Like Wile E. Coyote not being affected by gravity until he looks down and realizes he's run off the edge of the cliff.

  • Tuxedo Mark: With New Riverdale, things kinda make more sense, overall, I guess. With Classic Archie (even new Classic Archie), I find myself often asking "Why is this even an issue?" or "Why would the teen characters even care about this?" With Riverdale, it's absolutely insane bonkers, but everyone involved is in on the joke, so it's fun to just sit back, shut off my brain, and enjoy. :)

  • DeCarlo Rules: What I originally meant by "realistic" is that actors are more convincing at portraying real people on television than lines on paper and words in dialogue balloons are in a comic book.

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.

Love Notions Part 1 and 2 (Betty and Veronica) 11 pg. from Betty and Veronica Spectacular #7. *Not a Valentine’s Day story*

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

Chuck draws a portrait of Nancy for Valentine’s Day and mixes it up with one he drew of a monster.

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.
