  • DeCarlo Rules: I thought the ad money was only a piece of the webcomics big picture, with the other pieces being commission work and print collections of past webcomics, and word-of-mouth that leads to paying assignments from established publishers. It seems like Gisele just has too much talent to stay out of the game for long, and if nothing else, minus the expenses of hosting and time spent creating webcomics, she ought to be able to make a living just doing covers (which pay better than interior pages), if nothing else.

  • irishmoxie: Apparently the ad money for webcomics couldn't pay her living expenses anymore.

  • DeCarlo Rules: Aw, dang. I hope Gisele gets a regular print comic series going. Hopefully that's the only reason she's quitting webcomics.

  • DeCarlo Rules: The Archie Annuals actually ran from 1950 to 1975 (after that they continued as digests). Does ComiXology have all 26 of the comic book-sized Annuals?

    November 07, 2017, 12:26:57 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: I hope they continue reprinting those Jughead stories from the early 2nd series issues (late 1980s) in World of Archie digest. Maybe not, because that was a special Time Police section, but I can always hope. Loverboy Jughead, Skatepunk Jughead, Snax Headjug. The weirder the better.
    November 06, 2017, 09:29:09 AM
  • Jabroniville: The next issue was a pretty great one- Jughead swears off girls by writing songs about how awful women are, which makes the girls at the shows fall in LOVE with him. Eventually, Betty & Ronnie refuse to play another sexist number, and he's finally consoled by ETHEL of all people (who really got the short end of the stick with the Debbie/Joani arc).
    November 06, 2017, 03:58:39 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: The way that I figure it is that January was a Time Marshall, and Jughead was a mere Deputy, so he probably didn't have the clearance level or Need To Know status for her to tell his about the multiverse. Although he could presumably have figured it out on his own, based on some of the Time Police missions he was involved in.

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".
Pie is my favorite Vitamin.

DeCarlo Rules

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

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.  [...]

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.
