  • DeCarlo Rules: What I don't understand is why they're trying to discourage subscriptions to B&V FRIENDS Jumbo digest. It's been published at 10 times per year frequency for the last 3 years -- just like the other B&V jumbo digest. So if they're both published just as often, why do they offer a choice of 10 issue or 20 issue subscriptions for BETTY & VERONICA, but only a 6 issue subscription for B&V FRIENDS? You can get a 12-issue subscription to B&V FRIENDS on the website, but if I remember correctly, the printed ad for subs only offers the 6-issue sub option. Why isn't it the same option as the other digests (10 issues or 20 issues), if they're all published 10 times a year? And they ARE.

  • Tuxedo Mark: Just looked at Archie Comics' subsciption page. Archie Meets Batman '66 is a six-issue miniseries. Archie 1941 is a five-issue miniseries. There's a six-issue subscription for Betty and Veronica: Friends Forever and Vixens (surprisingly; might get transferred to the new B&V title) and a twelve-issue subscription for Riverdale. Riverdale Digest isn't listed, so it looks like it's been cancelled.

  • CAPalace: I'm a woman btw and I'm just so sick of the blatant anti-men thing going on in comics these days. It's not doing women any favors either. :/

  • CAPalace: They're banking on Archie 700 to sell a lot because "lol a new number wow lol" and it will for the first issue but it'll just go back to the average/poor numbers it had before. And YOU KNOW with that writer on B+V it's going to turn into an anti-men, oooh girl power lol violence against men and demeaning men is feminism and fun lol lol Good luck. I'll stick to Ebay to find the DeCarlo stuff thanks.

  • Tuxedo Mark: I'm looking forward to the new B&V series. Personally, I think that previous B&V series by what's-his-name was way worse than anything that Rotante wrote on Vixens.
    July 09, 2018, 08:43:47 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: So, so predictable... they love to exploit NUMBERS, whether it's a single digit (1 or 0) or a triple-digit ending in 00. Good lord, I can't believe they're actually giving Jamie Rotante ANOTHER B&V series to write ruin! She is the worst I've read -- although it's a tough call, Marguerite Bennett was pretty horrible as well. Nick Spencer can actually be quite good as a writer... or pretty bad, depending on the character and the direction. He was great on ANT-MAN and SUPERIOR FOES OF SPIDER-MAN (both books that had a strong humorous subtext), and not so hot on CAPTAIN AMERICA and THE AVENGERS. And he's he new writer on (yet another) first issue of THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, so I wouldn't guess the ARCHIE gig will last. ACP could probably only afford to hire him for that ONE issue, #700.

  • Vegan Jughead: ARCHIE isn't on hiatus officially. The last official word from Archie Comics is that there is "big news about the flagship ARCHIE title" coming up after the "1941" miniseries. We'll see. RIVERDALE is supposed to come back early '19 after the TV show returns.

  • DeCarlo Rules: I guess there's still THE HUNGER and VAMPIRONICA, but they're still so new that it's hard to think of them as "ongoing".
    July 05, 2018, 12:14:16 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: So both ARCHIE and RIVERDALE are "on hiatus"? That means ACP has no ongoing floppy comic titles. Not a good sign. Good thing they still have the digests going (knock on wood).

Josie & the Pussycats reboot
« on: June 08, 2016, 06:42:21 PM »
A new Josie & the Pussycats comic series, featuring the exploits of Riverdale’s most popular all-girl rock band, will be out in September.

According to Archie Comics, the new series will feature Josie uniting the band to take their big shot at musical stardom, only to contend with the machinations of Alexandra Cabot, the ever-Machiavellian daughter of the Pussycats’ manager.

Marguerite Bennett and Cameron DeOrdio will write the series, with art by Audrey Mok. Mok also draws the cover of the first issue...

This looks amazing; if the writing is good, I think it will sell big time!

The Veronica Fish variant is really cool.  The attention to detail with the bands is great.  Can't believe there's a Shonen Knife poster on their wall.  Someone knows their girl bands!

I like Veronica Fish's cover is best out of the 3. I'm not huge fan of Josie & The Pussycats. But I will get the #1. I'm more interested in Archie & Jughead & Betty & Veronica reboots.

C-can we talk about how beautifully Mok draws them? It does not help my unnatural crush on Melody lol

Also I hope they don't make Alexandra into a cartoonish villain and nothing else. (Like no character development.)

I can't wait to see how Alan & Alexander will look. It would be cool if somehow they put Pepper in the story. She should be fighting with Melody & Josie. They should befriend her. And she will want to get revenge on them . And maybe get friendly with Alexandra. Maybe they could be a couple.

Well, I guess we are seeing them spend some of that new finance money. Not familiar with any of these creators' work, but Audrey Mok's art looks okay.

Also spotted: album covers for Talking Heads (True Stories), Ramones, Run DMC, The Archies, a poster for Chuck Berry and Lloyd Price, and a Playbill for Hedwig and the Angry Inch.

They look similar to me. And those are the covers I don't like.

Right. 50s rock n roll is probably my favorite next to The Beach Boys.  The Chuck Berry and Lloyd Price poster that looks just like a 50s concert flyer is amazing.  Whoever came up with that idea is inspired.  Nice that they're celebrating two folks who are still with us too!  Chuck will be 90 this year and Lloyd is 83. 


I wish they had put a better Talking Heads album on there.  Fear of Music or Remain In Light maybe, but True Stories I guess was easy to do because the band's name is so big it would stand out.

Alex and Alexandra's dad is the manager now? Where does that leave Alex?

All his covers look the same to me. He always draws those silhouette covers because they take less effort.
