  • 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".

  • Tuxedo Mark: The only "local" comic shop within "reasonable" distance of my house is 18 miles away, in the next county. Yeah, no, I'll continue getting my comics digitally.

  • 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.

  • DeCarlo Rules: Don't forget to pick up the FCBD issue of DIE KITTY DIE: I Love You to Death! by Dan & Fernando from Chapterhouse Comics! 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...) Doesn't an adult business proprietor have more important things to worry about???

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!).
