  • DeCarlo Rules: It's crazy that ACP hasn't reprinted those 2 issues as a double-size one-shot. Or the lead story in a TP collection of vampire stories (including "Twilite" and others).

  • irishmoxie: That's crazy about those Betty and Veronica issues being worth so much. They're only about 6 years old. I'm pretty sure I have copies of them.

  • DeCarlo Rules: On a relatated note, the real FIRST Vampironica appeared in Larry Welz' underground comic Cherry Poptart #1 [link]. That can be had right now, CGCed at 9.4, at the Buy-It-Now price of $280 on ebay. Although the book had several subsequent printings, only the first printing ($2 cover price) contains the Vampironica story. Much, much scarcer than B&V #261 & 262, but then far fewer people seem to be aware of its existence. It may not be the same Vampironica as the one that appears in her own comic book from ACP, but then you can easily make the argument that neither is the Vampironica from B&V 261-262.

  • rusty: Crazy.  I obviously missed that back then.
    November 03, 2018, 10:06:11 pm
  • DeCarlo Rules: Yes, I mentioned this a while back somewhere around the time Vampironica #1 was first solicted or shipped. I even mentioned it to Dan Parent and told him if he still had copies he should get them CGC'ed.
    November 03, 2018, 04:33:03 pm
  • rusty: Apparently Betty and Veronica #261 and 262 (1987 series) are popular now due to Vampironica.  Somebody actually purchased a copy of #261 for $299 on ebay recently.

Jughead #14
« on: April 05, 2017, 07:09:31 am »
Another really fun issue that wraps up Ryan North's tenure on the Jughead book. 


I'm very skeptical I'll like Mark Waid and Ian Flynn's version of Jughead as much as Ryan North's.  I'll give it a chance but Ryan's writing on Jughead has been the highlight of the Archie reboots for me.

I didn't get my copy from Tfaw yet. I love Derek Charm's art but that's it. He makes Jughead adorable.

Another really fun issue that wraps up Ryan North's tenure on the Jughead book. 

This issue is probably the highwater mark for this title. Definitely the funniest issue so far, but having said that, this is about as far away as you can get from the traditional style of Archie comedy, which although it sometimes leans a little in the satirical direction, is never quite as temporal in its humor. What I mean is that the humor here will be impenetrable to anyone 20 years from now who wasn't old enough to understand it in 2017. It's really quite funny, at least to anyone with more than a median awareness of online culture and social media. I also felt the running subtext commentary worked better in this issue (it didn't distract or slow things down) than in any of the previous ones.

I'm very skeptical I'll like Mark Waid and Ian Flynn's version of Jughead as much as Ryan North's.  I'll give it a chance but Ryan's writing on Jughead has been the highlight of the Archie reboots for me.   

I agree. And while I enjoyed Ian Flynn's writing on MEGA MAN and NEW CRUSADERS, those were adventure-style comics, as is most of Mark Waid's writing that I enjoy (I'm just really, really underwhelmed by ARCHIE, and Waid's not generally known for his humor or realism).
