  • DeCarlo Rules: @Kallell - Right. That's what I meant. The solicitations that came OUT for the months of November, December, and January... as Diamond Comics Distribution dates their catalogs. And those ACP comics digests solicited in those catalogs would indeed have shipping dates in the months of January, February, and March.  Which means ALL the issues of Archie, World of Archie, Betty and Veronica, and B & V Friends in those solicitations are JUMBO COMICS digests. Unlike those titles, Riverdale Comics Digest, Marvel Comics Digest, and Archie and Me Comics Digest haven't varied in their format from one issue to the next.

  • Archie Comics Collector(Kalell): Very interesting observation DeCarlo Rules. Actually December 2017 was the last month in which there was still three Digest formats: Annual, Comics Double Digest and a Jumbo Comics Digest. As I looked through Jan, Feb and March solicits it seems that the main two formats are Comics Digest 128 pager: Archie and Me and the rest of the main Archie Digests will just be Jumbo Comics Digest 192 pagers. They seem to be doing away with the Annuals and Comics Double Digests for now.

  • DeCarlo Rules: Looking back through the ACP solicitations from November, December and January, it just dawned on me that EVERY regular digest title solicted (except for Archie and Me Comics Digest, Riverdale Comics Digest, and Marvel Comics Digest) is a JUMBO COMICS Digest (192 pages). Are Jumbo Comics Digests the new permanent format? It sure looks that way.

HOT DOG prototype - in 1964?
« on: April 15, 2016, 06:11:34 AM »
I was struck, when browsing through some old cover images from issues of LAUGH, to see these covers featuring shaggy white dogs bearing an amazing resemblance to Hot Dog. The actual Hog Dog (as named) didn't appear until plans got underway for Filmation's The Archie Show,  which first aired in 1968. These covers from LAUGH are dated May and July of 1964, respectively.

There was a dog who looked like Hot Dog in one of the '40s stories, he was Archie's new dog.

I remember Archie having a dog in the 1940s stories, but I don't remember it being a big, shaggy white dog that looked like Hot Dog. Do you have an image of the dog you're thinking of?

If I find it again I'll post it, it was probably an image from the old forum.  :(

Archie had a Hot Dog-esque dog named Bonaparte for one story in Archie Comics #33. He even made the cover of Archie Archives #10! Archie's other dog Oscar, who appeared in a number of Sahle-era stories, did not bear a resemblance to Hot Dog.

Just the one story? Was he Hot Dog-like in any other way (thought balloons, lazy, glutton for food), or just in appearance?

As far as I can tell, he only appeared in one story. No other Hot Dog-like characteristics aside from his appearance.

He does look a lot like Hot Dog though, allowing for the 1940s style of drawing.

He was kind of like Hot Dog by causing a lot of trouble but I guess that's like all dogs.

I just came across this Oscar dog. I had never heard of him before.

Oscar first appeared in some of the early 1940s comic book stories.

Actually, Hot Dog used to be Archie's dog before he was Jughead's. I recall a story like that, though I can't find it yet. Anyone else remember it?

I was noticing how, while he's generally still recognizable, there's quite a bit of variation between the different classic Archie artists as far as how they draw Hot Dog. The original Filmation-designed character has a pretty distinctive look, but after a short while in the comics, it seems like few Archie artists bothered to reference that design for their model when drawing Hot Dog. In more recent stories in particular, I noticed that Fernando Ruiz' version of Hot Dog seems less fat than the version typical of other artists, though he's still a big dog.
