  • DeCarlo Rules: @irishmoxie -- It's definitely complete. All six of the 1958-59 Sy Reit/Bob White original issues, plus the feature-length "Good Guys of the Galaxy" by Tom DeFalco & Fernando Ruiz from ARCHIE #655, and three 5-page digest shorts that guest-starred Cosmo -- and the complete first issue of the Ian Flynn/Tracy Yarley COSMO (2017) thrown in for good measure. It follows the same layout/format as the previous JUGHEAD'S TIME POLICE, even though that didn't carry the "Archie Comics Presents..." trade dress. Not a bad buy for $11.

  • DeCarlo Rules: ...Marvel's earlier JOHN CARTER, WARLORD OF MARS in there, so the DE Tarzan comics need to go in a different box, and SHEENA (also a recent DE title) and DC's RIMA THE JUNGLE GIRL will help fill up that box.
    June 11, 2018, 07:40:48 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Recently. DE's unauthorized LORD OF THE JUNGLE Tarzan adaptations (and its authorized THE GREATEST ADVENTURE) won't fit into my existing box of previous Tarzan comics from Gold Key, DC, and Dark Horse, so I have to start a new box. Logically these get filed with DE's unauthorized WARLORD OF MARS comics (including DEJAH THORIS) and their authorized JOHN CARTER, WARLORD OF MARS. But I also want to squeeze Marve;
    June 11, 2018, 07:38:48 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Interesting. I tend not to group titles by publisher at all, if the characters were not created as work-for-hire (meaning the publisher is legally considered the 'author' of the character). Do they belong to that publisher's "universe" (assuming it has one)? There are some publishers like Dynamite Entertainment where the vast majority of the titles they publish are licensed, and thus were "inherited" from other publishers. Therefore it makes more sense to me to group them together in boxes with similar characters. Flash Gordon, The Phantom, and Mandrake comics (regardless of who the actual publisher was) go together in the same box because they're all classic adventure heroes licensed from Hearst Entertainment (formerly King Features Syndicate). Pulp fiction heroes like The Shadow, Doc Savage, and The Spider (regardless of the fact that the latter did not originate with the same publisher as the first two) also get grouped together. Space considerations allowing, Tarzan (and other Edgar Rice Burroughs adaptations) might share the same box with Sheena and Rima, but NOT with Ka-Zar, because he's a Marvel Universe character.
    June 11, 2018, 07:16:22 PM
  • rusty: I do keep all Star Trek series together in their own section and all Star Wars books together.  I also keep all 2000AD titles together and manga books get their own section.  For titles that have switched publishers, I usually keep them all with the publisher that I identify them with the most.  Tarzan has been published by a variety of publishers, but I keep them with Dell/Gold Key.  Conan is starting to get a bit close with all the success Dark Horse has had, but I still identify Conan more with Marvel.
    June 11, 2018, 06:27:26 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Believe it or not, I even have a box labeled "Pseudo-manga" that contains comics published by American companies and created by American creators like Astro Boy & Racer X (Now Comics), Battle of the Planets (Gold Key & Top Cow/Image), Captain Harlock (Malibu), Godzilla (Dark Horse) and Ultraman. I just want to keep those separate from the boxes of real translated manga in floppy comic format.
    June 11, 2018, 03:34:17 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Well. the problem is when you get titles with licensed characters that aren't owned by the publisher. So if you collect Star Trek comics, you'd have different series published by Gold Key, Marvel, DC, and IDW (and I probably missed one in there). It doesn't make sense to me to put them in different boxes by publisher, but to each his own. Disney comics would be another example. There are even some instances where if I like a certain artist enough, I will put all his work regardless of publisher or characters into one box, like Paul Gulacy, Steve Rude, or Mike Allred (and file them chronologically from older to newer, rather than alphabetically). Those are examples where my interest in the creator far exceeds my relative interest in whatever characters are involved.
    June 11, 2018, 03:14:29 PM
  • rusty: That makes sense.  There are many ways that people can file books.  What I do is file by company or category and then alphabetically within each section.  My first category is Richie Rich then Archie, then other Harvey titles, then Disney, then other humor/kids books, then by company (unless it is a company where I don't have very many books from them.  Star Trek and Star Wars each get their own section as well.  I will probably revamp a bit when I do my next major sort/merge.  The biggest section by far for me is DC.
    June 11, 2018, 09:28:59 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: I don't even file my comics alphabetically. I file them according to how closely they're related to other titles, but it's all dependent on the number of issues I have of any given title, and what will fit into a single box. Fpr ACP comics I just put all the short-run series (whether an actual miniseries or just a not particularly successful title) into one box. Even though some of those short run series star Jughead, and I could as easily file those together with the main JUGHEAD title in another box. For longer running ACP titles, "girl" titles are sorted into different boxes than "boy" titles. Eventually when I have enough issues of BETTY (and BETTY AND ME and BETTY'S DIARY) they'll get their own box, and VERONICA will get her own box.
    June 10, 2018, 09:49:06 AM
  • rusty: I file Jughead under J and Reggie under R in all of their incarnations, though I do file the original Lois Lane and Jimmy Olsen books under S since that keeps them with the Superman books and also because they kept that title throughout their entire run.  If anyone wants to look up Jughead or Reggie in Overstreet, though, they will have to look under A for the early issues.
    June 10, 2018, 07:56:27 AM
  • BettyReggie: I can't wait to get that Reggie book. It's coming out the day after my 39th Birthday.
    June 10, 2018, 06:42:06 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Yeah, I never understood why publishers felt the need to point that out on the covers of a comic book, like maybe someone didn't really know who REGGIE was, and might buy it just because they noticed the words "Archie's Rival" above the big letters that spelled REGGIE? Same with "Archie's Pal" or "Superman's Pal" or "Superman's Girl Friend" -- like some potential buyer wouldn't know who Jughead, Jimmy Olsen, or Lois Lane was, but would know who Archie or Superman was? Just assume you're selling the product to idiots, I guess. Is anyone really filing REGGIE under "A" for Archie's Pal in their collections??
    June 10, 2018, 05:42:02 AM
  • rusty: In it's first incarnation, Reggie was titled ARCHIE'S RIVAL, REGGIE.  It wasn't until after the title was resurrected nearly a decade later that it became REGGIE and then REGGIE AND ME.
    June 09, 2018, 10:23:13 PM
  • Tuxedo Mark: I've never understood why those old titles had "and Me" in them, anyway. Why not just name the titles after the starring characters?

GISELE LAGACE      Eerie Cuties

I assume you put Eerie Cuties here 'cause of rating, but to be more clear, I was drawing Eerie Cuties way before I ever drew anything for Archie. Saying it's something I'm doing now is not really accurate (plus, the updates that are going up right now are actually drawn by Fernando.) I don't see myself as an ex Archie artist. I simply didn't do enough work for them to say that they mattered to how much money I made in a year. Them not hiring me makes no difference to me money wise. Any time I did work for them was because I thought it would be fun, and I enjoy the property (especially Josie & Sabrina.) I think it's important that people get that 'cause I'm not suffering money wise by any means because Archie isn't giving me work. At most, I got/accepted one story to two a year at Archie. It was never enough for me to consider it regular work. Others have been more affected than me, and it pains me to see this happen. I hope all of them are able to find other work, and enough of it so that if Archie comes back to them, they can be a little more like me, and accept the gig 'cause they WANT to VS because they HAVE to in order to pay the bills.

Menage a 3 (rated R) and Sticky Dilly Buns are my current main gigs (Ma3 I started years before I ever did anything at Archie,) and I have another one in the works. Eerie Cuties/Magick Chicks will keep going with the help of friends like Fernando & Dan.

Honestly, I'm in a good place and have nothing to complain about. Sure, I'd love my chance to have a run on Josie & the Pussycats, but I don't run that company, so I don't call the shots.

Gisele, your artwork for ACP is very recognizable.  When I first saw Reversedale, the first thing I thought of was 'that's the one that did Penny & Aggie, Gisele'.  ;)

Hehe, thanks. Yeah, around the end of my run on Penny & Aggie (before Jason Waltrip took over,) my art started to settled down into what some would say is my style (and what you would've seen in the Reversedale issue.) I really experimented with my art on Penny & Aggie. I tend to not do that as much these days. I try to be more consistent for the reader's sake. :)

Jeff Shultz was also (at one time, I don't know if he's continuing) working on Boom Studios' PEANUTS comic book. Unfortunately, Jeff doesn't seem to have any sort of website.

I'd like to know what the Kennedy brothers and Bill Galvan are doing, as well. Also Craig Boldman and Rex Lindsay.

You can also add Fernando and Dan Parent to the list of people working on EERIE CUTIES. Both of those guys said they will have some announcements forthcoming in a little while, but right now it's too soon to say anything, when interviewed by Jonathan on this week's Riverdale Podcast.

The Peanuts Comic book seems to be publishing on an irregular schedule as of late, and I'm not sure how many stories Jeff Shultz drew.  They seem to mostly have Vicki Scott and Paige Braddock drawing the newer issues, mostly doing adaptations of old Schulz strips over entirely new material.

Thanks for the information. Sorry, this list isn't meant to imply anything about when these projects were started or how often any of the people listed worked for Archie or anything about anyone's financial situation since that's private until they decide otherwise. It just means what are these people who no longer work for Archie doing now, put in one list so people who like the Archie style of drawing can look up other places to get their art since we can't get it from Archie for now. Since you're not doing Eerie Cuties right now and Fernando is I'll change that listing.

This is probably news to some, OLD news to others, and maybe the kind of thing that even less people might care about. It's a bit of a fuzzy gray area as far as being on-topic for this thread, but let's just categorize it as a related topic by way of "Archie creators who did work for other publishers". If you happen to be more than a casual fan of Stan Goldberg, George Gladir, and The Three Stooges, it's certainly something you'd want to be made aware of, at minimum as an interesting footnote in their careers, and perhaps worthy of further investigation.

PAPERCUTZ (which specializes in marketing graphic novels to kids) produced a couple of THREE STOOGES graphic novels back in 2012, with art by Stan Goldberg, written by George Gladir (in collaboration with Stefan Petrucha and Jim Salicrup). In this particular instance, neither George nor Stan is an "ex-Archie artist" through any fault of ACP's. Originally 4 such graphic novels were planned, of which apparently only two were actually published. You can check out previews of the published Volumes 1 & 2 over at Papercutz' official website. >http://papercutz.com/kids-comics-graphic-novels/the-three-stooges



They also have a couple of reprint collections of "The Best of" the original Three Stooges comics published in the 1950s by Norman Maurer, a cartoonist who was the son-in-law of Moe Howard of the Stooges, in collaboration with his studio partner Joe Kubert. The two artists were also notable for developing the anaglyphic (red and green glasses) stereovision process which kicked off a brief boom in 3D comic books in the early 1950s.

I present the covers of the unpublished Volumes 3 and 4 below.

TANIA DEL RIO just had a new hardcover book (aimed at readers aged 8-12) published by Quirk Books: Warren the 13th and the All-Seeing Eye. I believe her last prior book was Betty: Diary of a Girl Next Door, published by ACP. As with the Betty book by ACP, the new one from Quirk Books is a novel told in text, although (also like the Betty book) it's heavily illustrated; this time, by artist Will Staehle (who does not, as far as I'm aware, have any prior credits working for ACP). Quirk decided to heavily promote the book by providing a softcover chapbook composed of the first 3 chapters of the novel to comic shop retailers free of charge through Diamond Comics Distribution (which is where I learned of it). Your LCS may have copies of the free 48-page (surprisingly substantial) promotional chapbook, which was delivered to shops last week, still available.

Quote
Meet Warren the 13th. He’s the lone bellhop, valet, groundskeeper, and errand boy of his family’s ancient hotel. It’s a strange, shadowy mansion full of crooked corridors and mysterious riddles—and it just might be home to a magical treasure known as the All-Seeing Eye. But if Warren is going to find the hidden treasure, he’ll need to solve several other mysteries first: What is the strange creature lurking in the hotel boiler room? Who is the ghostly girl creeping around the garden’s hedge maze? And why is the hotel’s only guest covered in bandages? Full of puzzles, secret codes, outrageous inventions, and hundreds of intricate illustrations, Warren the 13th and the All-Seeing Eye will delight and confound readers of all ages.

I just remembered I used to have Tania del Rio as a friend on Myspace. A looooooooong time ago. Ron Dante too.
I was also Myspace friends with a woman who had a  page dedicated to Archie Comics. I want to say her name was Beth? She was really cool and nice. Ahh, good times!

BILL GALVAN

Wow, what are the odds? Last week I mentioned the (probably overlooked by most Archie fans) work of George Gladir and Stan Goldberg on Papercutz two original Three Stooges graphic novels in 2012. So what are the chances that the next sighting I'd make of an ex-Archie creator's work would also be in another THREE STOOGES comic book? I mean, let's consider that apart from the aforementioned graphic novels, there have only been a bare few original (non-reprint) Three Stooges comic books produced since 1972, when Whitman published #55 of a fairly long series which originally began with comics published by Dell and later Gold Key (which is really the same company as Whitman in all but name).

American Mythology Productions (www.AmericanMythology.net) now has the license and recently released a new THREE STOOGES #1 that contains an 8 page story with artwork by Bill Galvan. I'm not sure if Bill's work will be a regular feature in that comic, but American Mythology Productions is apparently expanding its comic line with lots of new licensed titles like Edgar Rice Burroughs' THE LAND THAT TIME FORGOT, STARGATE ATLANTIS, and (getting back to Bill Galvan again) THE PINK PANTHER, which will also be a FCBD 2016 offering.



Interesting footnote: When I headed over to American Mythology's website to see what info I could find on their comics, they also list our old friend HOLLY GOLIGHTLY among their list of creators contributing to their titles. Frustratingly though, after a brief profile of Holly's previous work, they never actually mentioned which title she's slated to be working on! A mystery for another day... stay tuned.
