  • DeCarlo Rules: @irishmoxie -- It's definitely complete. All six of the 1958-59 Sy Reit/Bob White original issues, plus the feature-length "Good Guys of the Galaxy" by Tom DeFalco & Fernando Ruiz from ARCHIE #655, and three 5-page digest shorts that guest-starred Cosmo -- and the complete first issue of the Ian Flynn/Tracy Yarley COSMO (2017) thrown in for good measure. It follows the same layout/format as the previous JUGHEAD'S TIME POLICE, even though that didn't carry the "Archie Comics Presents..." trade dress. Not a bad buy for $11.

  • DeCarlo Rules: ...Marvel's earlier JOHN CARTER, WARLORD OF MARS in there, so the DE Tarzan comics need to go in a different box, and SHEENA (also a recent DE title) and DC's RIMA THE JUNGLE GIRL will help fill up that box.
    June 11, 2018, 07:40:48 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Recently. DE's unauthorized LORD OF THE JUNGLE Tarzan adaptations (and its authorized THE GREATEST ADVENTURE) won't fit into my existing box of previous Tarzan comics from Gold Key, DC, and Dark Horse, so I have to start a new box. Logically these get filed with DE's unauthorized WARLORD OF MARS comics (including DEJAH THORIS) and their authorized JOHN CARTER, WARLORD OF MARS. But I also want to squeeze Marve;

  • DeCarlo Rules: Interesting. I tend not to group titles by publisher at all, if the characters were not created as work-for-hire (meaning the publisher is legally considered the 'author' of the character). Do they belong to that publisher's "universe" (assuming it has one)? There are some publishers like Dynamite Entertainment where the vast majority of the titles they publish are licensed, and thus were "inherited" from other publishers. Therefore it makes more sense to me to group them together in boxes with similar characters. Flash Gordon, The Phantom, and Mandrake comics (regardless of who the actual publisher was) go together in the same box because they're all classic adventure heroes licensed from Hearst Entertainment (formerly King Features Syndicate). Pulp fiction heroes like The Shadow, Doc Savage, and The Spider (regardless of the fact that the latter did not originate with the same publisher as the first two) also get grouped together. Space considerations allowing, Tarzan (and other Edgar Rice Burroughs adaptations) might share the same box with Sheena and Rima, but NOT with Ka-Zar, because he's a Marvel Universe character.

  • rusty: I do keep all Star Trek series together in their own section and all Star Wars books together.  I also keep all 2000AD titles together and manga books get their own section.  For titles that have switched publishers, I usually keep them all with the publisher that I identify them with the most.  Tarzan has been published by a variety of publishers, but I keep them with Dell/Gold Key.  Conan is starting to get a bit close with all the success Dark Horse has had, but I still identify Conan more with Marvel.
    June 11, 2018, 06:27:26 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Believe it or not, I even have a box labeled "Pseudo-manga" that contains comics published by American companies and created by American creators like Astro Boy & Racer X (Now Comics), Battle of the Planets (Gold Key & Top Cow/Image), Captain Harlock (Malibu), Godzilla (Dark Horse) and Ultraman. I just want to keep those separate from the boxes of real translated manga in floppy comic format.
    June 11, 2018, 03:34:17 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Well. the problem is when you get titles with licensed characters that aren't owned by the publisher. So if you collect Star Trek comics, you'd have different series published by Gold Key, Marvel, DC, and IDW (and I probably missed one in there). It doesn't make sense to me to put them in different boxes by publisher, but to each his own. Disney comics would be another example. There are even some instances where if I like a certain artist enough, I will put all his work regardless of publisher or characters into one box, like Paul Gulacy, Steve Rude, or Mike Allred (and file them chronologically from older to newer, rather than alphabetically). Those are examples where my interest in the creator far exceeds my relative interest in whatever characters are involved.
    June 11, 2018, 03:14:29 PM
  • rusty: That makes sense.  There are many ways that people can file books.  What I do is file by company or category and then alphabetically within each section.  My first category is Richie Rich then Archie, then other Harvey titles, then Disney, then other humor/kids books, then by company (unless it is a company where I don't have very many books from them.  Star Trek and Star Wars each get their own section as well.  I will probably revamp a bit when I do my next major sort/merge.  The biggest section by far for me is DC.
    June 11, 2018, 09:28:59 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: I don't even file my comics alphabetically. I file them according to how closely they're related to other titles, but it's all dependent on the number of issues I have of any given title, and what will fit into a single box. Fpr ACP comics I just put all the short-run series (whether an actual miniseries or just a not particularly successful title) into one box. Even though some of those short run series star Jughead, and I could as easily file those together with the main JUGHEAD title in another box. For longer running ACP titles, "girl" titles are sorted into different boxes than "boy" titles. Eventually when I have enough issues of BETTY (and BETTY AND ME and BETTY'S DIARY) they'll get their own box, and VERONICA will get her own box.

  • rusty: I file Jughead under J and Reggie under R in all of their incarnations, though I do file the original Lois Lane and Jimmy Olsen books under S since that keeps them with the Superman books and also because they kept that title throughout their entire run.  If anyone wants to look up Jughead or Reggie in Overstreet, though, they will have to look under A for the early issues.
    June 10, 2018, 07:56:27 AM
  • BettyReggie: I can't wait to get that Reggie book. It's coming out the day after my 39th Birthday.
    June 10, 2018, 06:42:06 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Yeah, I never understood why publishers felt the need to point that out on the covers of a comic book, like maybe someone didn't really know who REGGIE was, and might buy it just because they noticed the words "Archie's Rival" above the big letters that spelled REGGIE? Same with "Archie's Pal" or "Superman's Pal" or "Superman's Girl Friend" -- like some potential buyer wouldn't know who Jughead, Jimmy Olsen, or Lois Lane was, but would know who Archie or Superman was? Just assume you're selling the product to idiots, I guess. Is anyone really filing REGGIE under "A" for Archie's Pal in their collections??
    June 10, 2018, 05:42:02 AM
  • rusty: In it's first incarnation, Reggie was titled ARCHIE'S RIVAL, REGGIE.  It wasn't until after the title was resurrected nearly a decade later that it became REGGIE and then REGGIE AND ME.
    June 09, 2018, 10:23:13 PM
  • Tuxedo Mark: I've never understood why those old titles had "and Me" in them, anyway. Why not just name the titles after the starring characters?
    June 09, 2018, 08:17:45 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Funny that the trade paperback collection is entitled REGGIE AND ME Vol. 1, when his floppy comic book series was actually titled just plain REGGIE for the first 18 issues (and going on hiatus for nine years in between issues #14 and 15). Since it's only a 224-page book, that should mean we'll be seeing reprints of stories from the first 9 (or maybe 10) issues. So shouldn't it be titled REGGIE Vol. 1? Unless they actually do plan to start the first volume with issue #19 from 1966 (the first classic Evilheart issue) where the title actually changed to REGGIE AND ME. My theory is that the ME in that title = Evilheart, unlike the prior titles ARCHIE AND ME (where ME = Mr. Weatherbee), or BETTY AND ME (where the ME = Archie).

Makeout Locations in the Comics?
« on: September 29, 2017, 03:01:52 PM »
Hi everone,
I'm writing a Riverdale fanfiction and am looking for some iconic locations for characters to sneak off to and make out. Whether the old comics or the current generation I don't mind. I'd love to know if there are there any?
Thanks. :)

Very few, actually. Archie Comics characters rarely attempt to "make out". They kiss (with great enthusiasm, I might add) accompanied by orbiting hearts around their heads, or heart-shaped irises in their eyes. A particularly enthusiastic kiss might be accompanied by a sound effect like *SMERP!!* Most of these kisses take place spontaneously, rather than surreptitiously and sneakily, or in some private secluded spot. The most common semi-private place that an extended kissing session might take place is on the couch in the family living room, after the parents have gone to bed or are out for the evening (it helps that most of the characters have no siblings living at home with them).

...You know, this reminds me of a story from some years ago, IIRC in Betty and Veronica Spectacular...that showed the Coopers leaving either Archie and Betty alone in the house or alone as they went to bed - But the story showed the gang immediately showing up at the Coopers' door, rather indicating that ACP's theory was that the Coopers (or Andrews) trust thir children, but in practice being really alone in the house never happens for very long! ???
  As for Veronics, it appears that the Lodges have live-in servants on-site at all times...But has that ever been absolutely spelled out :o ?

They do get vacations and days off, since that's an occasional plot device in stories. But I think you can take it as given that there's always a domenstic staff at the Lodge Mansion. There was a story I read just recently where Mr. & Mrs. Lodge took an overseas trip with Veronica, and Veronica asked Betty to come over to the mansion and pet-sit her little dog, since she couldn't bear to leave it at a kennel. At first Betty is excited thinking it's going to be like a vacation for her being waited on hand and foot by the Lodge household servants, but she quickly tires of it after they're constantly asking her if she wants or needs this or that, and by the time the Lodges return home, she can't wait to get back to her normal life at the Coopers' house. Then there was another story where she was house-sitting the mansion for some reason, and she felt sorry for the household staff because they just seemed so subservient, so servile, and she winds up thanking them for every little thing they do for her, and eventually she feels sorry for them since it seems like they're constantly working so hard to please, and she winds up giving them all a few days off. When the service staff come back just before the Lodges return and Betty has to go home, they throw a little farewell thank-you party for Betty because they aren't used to being treated so nicely!

Passion Point. It's a makeout location up on a small hill or something, I think. Jughead was once forced by B&V to take a girl up there on a date; the girl logically believed they were there for some intimate time, and when Jughead refused to pucker up, she chased him all around the place.

Wasn't "Passion Point" also a makeout spot on HAPPY DAYS? I admit my memory of the show is a little fuzzy after a few decades, but it immediately seemed to ring a bell. I don't recall ever seeing it in an Archie story, so I guess my memory was from the show.

You might be right about that. Googling "Inspiration Point" reveals a number of actual so-named places from Santa Barbara, CA to Yosemite National Park, including at least one "Inspiration Point Christian Camp & Retreat Center", which made me chuckle at the thought of Richie Cunningham parking there with a date.

Passion Point must have been a short-lived fling in Archie Comics for me to have missed it.
