  • 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.
    August 27, 2018, 03:19:15 pm
  • 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.
    August 27, 2018, 03:09:15 pm
  • 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.

    August 24, 2018, 05:37:39 pm
  • 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.

DeCarlo Rules

Dang it.

You got me all excited for nothing. I was thinking more like Batman the Animated Series meets B&V "classic"...

Aww....  :(

BettyReggie

I'm really looking forward to this . I had some Harley Quinn issues they were ok. But then I gave them to the Thift Store. I did save the one about her at SDCC. And that one where you can see her in a Wedding Dress on the cover.

Yes.
I say "yes".

Isn't Cheryl Blossom basically just Poison Ivy without the plant-powers anyway?  ;D

Tokyo

If they're doing a superhero crossover, I'd like to see a gritty reboot of (Netflix) The Punisher Meets (WB) Archie  ;D

More like The Punisher Meets Afterlife With Archie. I'm thinking lots of head shots. Quickest way to take down a zombie.

HARLEY & IVY MEET BETTY & VERONICA #1
 Written by PAUL DINI and MARC ANDREYKO
 Art by LAURA BRAGA
 Cover by AMANDA CONNER
 Variant cover by ADAM HUGHES
 Blank variant cover
 Retailers: This issue will ship with three covers. Please see the order form for details.
 Free college tuition for all Riverdale residents?! That’s the plan—after the town drains the wetlands that lie between it and Gotham City and then builds a new campus. The only snag? A certain botany-obsessed super-villain. When Poison Ivy enlists her bestie, Harley, to kidnap both Veronica Lodge, daughter of Riverdale’s most important citizen, and her friend Betty, she’s counting on some assistance—and the mayhem that ensues will probably work as well!
 DC Comics and Archie are proud to present the adventure of a lifetime for all these best pals. Their hijinks are brought to you by the real-life team-up of Paul Dini (HARLEY QUINN) and Marc Andreyko (WONDER WOMAN ’77), with art by Laura Braga (DC BOMBSHELLS)!
 On sale OCTOBER 4 • 32 pg, FC, 1 of 6, $3.99 US • RATED T

There will be a shorter gap in publication between Adam Hughes' B&V #3 and Harley & Ivy Meet Betty & Veronica #1 than there was between #1 and #2 (or #2 and #3) of Adam Hughes' B&V, but just to maintain some continuity there's that variant cover of Harley & Ivy Meet Betty & Veronica #1 by Adam Hughes.

Oh. That Laura Braga.  [...]

PTF

Please be Harley in classic costume...please be Harley in classic costume...

...

Dang it.

But besides the horrible costume that I don't get why anyone likes, you do have Dini helping with Quinn and Ivy and the art looks good from the cover. So this should be fun. :)

DeCarlo Rules

Too bad they couldn't get Amanda Connor to do the interior art (or better yet, Bruce Timm). Laura Braga's artwork on DC BOMBSHELLS didn't impress me. The original DC Direct merchandising concept was built around the idea of 1940s-style pinup/cheesecake/"good girl art" (sexy, yet still wholesome, not unlike Dan DeCarlo's early art) versions of the more popular DC superheroines, but Braga's comic book adaptation version of that concept was anything but.

The idea of a crossover between the 2 popular Batman villainesses and B&V would seem to be based on the same potential showcase for "good girl art", so the choice of Braga as interior artist is a disappointment, as is the fact that neither company is going with the "classic" (aka cartoon) versions of those characters. They seem to be willing to tease that GGA idea only so far as in having covers drawn by Amanda Conner and Adam Hughes, in order to insure better sales than a cover drawn by Laura Braga. I might buy it if they offer a blank sketch cover, which would allow me the potential of commissioning a drawing by a more appropriate artist.

📚 I preordered Harley & Ivy Meet Betty& Veronica#1 from Midtown Comics. I'm really looking forward to it.

DeCarlo Rules

On the plus side, now that the two companies are working together, the way is finally clear for that Scooby-Doo Meets Archie crossover.
