  • Vegan Jughead: DCR and Downloader, remember they also got that investment capital last year.  I think it was for a few hundred thousand dollars.  I don't know how long that will last, but I'm sure they're using that.

  • BettyReggie: I saw the November 2017 Solicitations. Fiona Staples is doing a few covers. I can't wait to see what they look like though because they didn't show them yet.

  • DeCarlo Rules: @The Downloader - What cash flow they have is coming not from the floppy titles, but from the digests and trade collections. They're just spewing out different one-shots and short-run series to see if they can find something that will last.

  • DeCarlo Rules: Yeah, I got it. Looks pretty good for the Sabrina and Josie story selections, adding up to about 200 pages. I couldn't care less about the Little Archie stories, Most of the stories here don't seem like they've been reprinted ad infinitum, which is good. Nice to see those in the standard comic-sized trade paperback.

I've stopped buying archie comics since 2011 and when i scanned through ebay last night, it was the first time i saw one of these. How many of these were published?

These have been published since 2013, approximately every 4 months. There have been 13 so far, with another one slated for early October 2016.

What stories are inside?

You ARE kidding... Right??  :crazy2:

Here's the short version of that answer: EXACTLY THE SAME STORIES THAT APPEARED IN THE REGULAR DIGESTS ISSUED A MONTH OR TWO PRIOR TO THE PUBLICATION OF WHATEVER 1000-PAGE DIGEST YOU HAPPEN TO BE LOOKING AT -- MINUS THE NON-ARCHIE STORIES (Josie, Sabrina, Li'l Jinx, etc.)

People who get all the regular digest titles as they come out don't need these, as they've just read those stories a month or two ago. On the other hand, someone who hadn't read any Archie digests since before 2013 would find that buying all 13 of the 1000-Page digests released so far would be very close to never having stopped reading the digests since 2013. You would just need to get all of the ARCHIE GIANT COMICS digests (480 pages, with 7 of those released so far, another due in Nov. 2016) as well, and you'd be 95% there. Collectively, these contain most of the stories printed in all the regular digest titles from around March 2013 to just recently -- almost 18,000 pages. So... no, I'm not going to list the stories.

Here are all the titles with the release dates:

2013-05-22   1000 PAGE COMICS DIGEST
2013-09-25   1000 PAGE COMICS EXTRAVAGANZA
2013-11-13   1000 PAGE COMICS JAMBOREE
2014-02-12   1000 PAGE COMICS-PALOOZA
2014-05-14   1000 PAGE COMICS BONANZA
2014-07-30   1000 PAGE COMICS EXPLOSION
2014-10-29   1000 PAGE COMICS CELEBRATION
2015-01-07   1000 PAGE MEGA COMICS DIGEST
2015-05-06   1000 PAGE COMICS BLOWOUT!
2015-08-12   1000 PAGE COMICS JAM
2015-11-11   1000 PAGE COMICS GALA
2016-02-03   1000 PAGE COMICS SHINDIG
2016-04-27   1000 PAGE COMICS 75TH ANNIVERSARY BASH!

I have a few so I stopped buying the digests. I have a few 1000 books I haven't even started read yet.

Oh wow, I did not know this. I thought they were books containing carefully selected stories from the past. Good to know!
