  • DeCarlo Rules: Presumably with an ongoing B&V series, they'd want to keep it nominally in continuity with the ongoing ARCHIE title.

  • DeCarlo Rules: Oh, I hadn't noticed that the story is "Senior Year", so that explains it. It's a one-off story arc, just like "Freshman Year". They're not going to keep them as seniors permanently, or have them graduate and go on to college in an ongoing series.

  • DeCarlo Rules: Probably just a space-filler while they look for a better writer than Jaime Rotante. I hope.

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

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

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!
