  • 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.

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!

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