  • DeCarlo Rules: That's pretty much the whole point of having an internet -- it connects you to entertainment, information, and people who would otherwise be too far away from you physically, or would involve much greater effort on your part to connect with. And although there are some advantages for comic book collectors inherent in the direct-market dedicated comic book shop system, the major BIG (obvious) DISadvantage is that only a few thousand of those shops exist, compared to the huge number of retailers who used to carry comic books along with their other products back in the days of the "newsstand distribution system".

  • DeCarlo Rules: @Archiecomicxfan215 - FCBD comic books may be free to you, but the retailer has to PAY for those comic books he gives away for free. The publishers of the FCBD comics make no profit off them, and they're distributed to retailers by Diamond Comics for free, but they have to charge comic shop owners money for them, because paper and printing costs money. Your local comic shop owner loses a small amount of money with every FCBD comic book he gives away. Of course the whole idea behind FCBD is that sampling those free comic books will create interest in customers actually BUYing the retail versions of those FCBD comic books later on.

Oh, and I guess if you care about that RIVERDALE thing, you could pick up the FCBD issue where Pop Tate eavesdrops on all the conversations of his teenage customers (makes him sound a little creepy, if you ask me...)

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.

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.

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.

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.
