  • Tuxedo Mark: Just looked at Archie Comics' subsciption page. Archie Meets Batman '66 is a six-issue miniseries. Archie 1941 is a five-issue miniseries. There's a six-issue subscription for Betty and Veronica: Friends Forever and Vixens (surprisingly; might get transferred to the new B&V title) and a twelve-issue subscription for Riverdale. Riverdale Digest isn't listed, so it looks like it's been cancelled.

  • CAPalace: I'm a woman btw and I'm just so sick of the blatant anti-men thing going on in comics these days. It's not doing women any favors either. :/
    July 09, 2018, 09:05:40 PM
  • CAPalace: They're banking on Archie 700 to sell a lot because "lol a new number wow lol" and it will for the first issue but it'll just go back to the average/poor numbers it had before. And YOU KNOW with that writer on B+V it's going to turn into an anti-men, oooh girl power lol violence against men and demeaning men is feminism and fun lol lol Good luck. I'll stick to Ebay to find the DeCarlo stuff thanks.

  • Tuxedo Mark: I'm looking forward to the new B&V series. Personally, I think that previous B&V series by what's-his-name was way worse than anything that Rotante wrote on Vixens.
    July 09, 2018, 08:43:47 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: So, so predictable... they love to exploit NUMBERS, whether it's a single digit (1 or 0) or a triple-digit ending in 00. Good lord, I can't believe they're actually giving Jamie Rotante ANOTHER B&V series to write ruin! She is the worst I've read -- although it's a tough call, Marguerite Bennett was pretty horrible as well. Nick Spencer can actually be quite good as a writer... or pretty bad, depending on the character and the direction. He was great on ANT-MAN and SUPERIOR FOES OF SPIDER-MAN (both books that had a strong humorous subtext), and not so hot on CAPTAIN AMERICA and THE AVENGERS. And he's he new writer on (yet another) first issue of THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, so I wouldn't guess the ARCHIE gig will last. ACP could probably only afford to hire him for that ONE issue, #700.

  • Vegan Jughead: ARCHIE isn't on hiatus officially. The last official word from Archie Comics is that there is "big news about the flagship ARCHIE title" coming up after the "1941" miniseries. We'll see. RIVERDALE is supposed to come back early '19 after the TV show returns.

  • Mr.Lodge: Think it's time for new leadership, especially in the creative front?
    July 05, 2018, 03:09:04 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: I guess there's still THE HUNGER and VAMPIRONICA, but they're still so new that it's hard to think of them as "ongoing".
    July 05, 2018, 12:14:16 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: So both ARCHIE and RIVERDALE are "on hiatus"? That means ACP has no ongoing floppy comic titles. Not a good sign. Good thing they still have the digests going (knock on wood).
    July 05, 2018, 12:12:47 AM
  • Vegan Jughead: I'm sure it has been; it was a dumb concept LOL.  The RIVERDALE comic is on hiatus until at least early 2019 and I'm skeptical it will ever come back.
    July 04, 2018, 04:37:17 PM
  • Tuxedo Mark: Has Riverdale Digest been cancelled? There hasn't been a new issue since #7 on March 21.

Has Anybody Been To This Archie Site?

It's hilarious! It talks about the "lust-filled" Archie comics of the 70's...  :2funny:

Wow, why is everything so itty-bitty? I have to wonder what these people are constructing these web sites on. It's just a pain to have to hit Ctrl+ multiple times, but I wonder what the creator was viewing the site on?

My favorite was this line. New theory on "What's the deal with Jughead?":
Quote
Of all the guys associated with Archie, Jughead was the most reserved in his horniness.  Perhaps it was the weed that killed his sex drive.  I don’t know.  But he still had his moments.

This guy had the right idea, though. The whole site focuses on an aspect of Archie Comics of the past that was really great, that I miss in the more toned-down stories of ACP's "modern era" (1987-2015). They were clearly tuned-in to one of (if not the) primary appeals of Dan DeCarlo's work, its innocent sexiness, and not afraid to exploit that.

Cripes! These guys are literally standing by this woman sweating and panting.  I wonder what we’d see if we could zoom out to get the whole picture.  Synchronized public masturbation is wrong, folks. Keep our beaches clean.

My favorite line was this one:
"Even the gay population at Riverdale can’t help but whistle at a miniskirt.  Truly, this is a land where gawking and pawing at females is not only accepted, but a way of life."
The writer comically assumed that just because the dudes were dressed the way they were, they were gay!  :2funny:


Quick question, DR: Why did you say the pictures were so small?  ???  They're quite large on my screen....

Quick question, DR: Why did you say the pictures were so small?  ???  They're quite large on my screen....

When I first looked at the link on my computer at home, the pictures looked normal-sized (that is to say, they looked like they were displayed on my screen at the pixel height and width at which they'd been scanned), BUT the text was displayed in really tiny fonts, and the whole page had a huge amount of gray space on either side of the page. I just now looked at it again, on a different computer, and the fonts are displayed in a nice readable size (if not a little larger than necessary), BUT the images as displayed are also blown up to the same relative proportions (you can tell they're larger than the original image size as scanned, because you can see dithering, or fuzziness in the colors).

Or maybe I'm mis-remembering and I did originally look at the page on this computer and the fonts displayed as tiny (and I subsequently used Ctrl++ to enlarge the whole page as displayed, but have since forgotten this, although my computer would remember this so I wouldn't need to use the Ctrl+ again).

AND I don't know what kind of screen display you're viewing the page on. It might look perfectly normal, say, on a 9"-diagonal tablet, while I'm looking at the site on a 11.75"x18" monitor with a default display resolution of 1050x1680.

Normally the hypertext (HTML) that the creator used to create the page should dictate some things about how the page displays, scaling both the fonts and images according to both the screen dimensions and pixel resolution native to the computer on which it's being viewed. For example, you sometimes find older web pages created a long time ago before larger monitors and higher screen display resolutions became common, that don't account for these things in the HTML code used to create the page, when scaling the images and fonts, or whether the text is justified or centered, or aligned to right or left.

Not all simple questions are as simple as they might at first appear!  :)

I read that story a few weeks ago. Name of the story is Sacrifice Play (Archie's Girls Betty and Veronica 214)
It's not Frankie Valdez, it's some other guy Betty was going out with.

 ;D ...well, actually Veronica didn't like the guy Betty was going out with. Her sixth sense was telling her there was something fishy about him. And she was right. He was just using Betty to get to Ronnie because of her money (Ronnie took the guy away from Betty so he wouldn't continue lying to her and using her. Ronnie then gave the guy the boot (literally!).
