  • 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. :/
    July 09, 2018, 09:05:40 PM
  • 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).

I love the story where Reggie saved Betty from almost getting hit by a truck. And soon after they had feelings for each other. It was called One Brief Moment.

There's a good one in WORLD OF ARCHIE ANNUAL #62 - a story called "Secret Date" where Archie sees someone at Pop's sitting in a booth holding up a magazine, H.O. Quarterly, and he can't believe there's someone else into scale model railroading like he is. As he approaches to make conversation, who should be behind that magazine when it's lowered but Ethel Muggs. Archie is surprised, but they start talking about model railroading, and Ethel mentions she's going to the big Train Expo in in Midvale tomorrow. Before he realizes it, Archie's invited himself along with her.  On his way to meet Ethel the next day, he thinks "Well, this is a little weird, me going somewhere with Ethel! Well, it's not like it's a date or anything, we're just going as friends!" Then he's surprised when he rings her doorbell and Ethel answers the door, dressed to the nines, new hairstyle, makeup... the whole kaboodle. Not only does he wind up having a great time with Ethel at the Train Expo, but afterwards they spend the entire evening together, dining at a Mexican restaurant, going to a comedy club and then hitting the dance floor later on. Archie can't help but compare Ethel to Betty & Veronica, and finds his time spent with Ethel to be a lot more relaxing and fun by comparison. At the end of the story, he kisses her goodnight, but then invites her to go to a classic car show the next week. The story is credited as having been written by John Wilcox, a writer with whom I'm completely unfamiliar - this is the first story I can remember seeing credited to him.

I don't recall the specifics of the story any longer and I haven't run across it in a few years, but the gist is Betty got let down by Archie while attending a dance and in the final panel Jughead says to Betty "If there should ever come a time I'd willingly kiss a girl it'd be you" (or close to that).  It makes my heart go pitter-pat just recalling it.

I'm not sure if I'm remembering the same story or just another one where he said something similar. The situation was that Jughead was comforting Betty in one of the many cases of her being on the receiving end of Archie's typical emotional neglect, and he reveals how much he appreciates her in a rare candid moment for him. Anyway, the context of whatever the exact words were amounted to Jughead telling Betty that if he were ever going to give up avoiding girls, she'd be the one he'd do it for. Which, by Jughead standards, is like writing her a romantic love sonnet. I could swear I've seen a basically similar scenario in two or three different stories, along with a number of lesser passing admissions along the lines of "You know, Betty, for a girl, you're okay."

"Home Is Where My Heat Is", which happens to be in my gallery. It's about Ms. Grundy's apartment home being burned in a fire, and The Gang helps her out...

The story wherein a lost dog knocks on Andrews home, when Archie opens the door the dog lets itself in much to the surprise of Archie's parents which scared the poor dog. Archie's mother suggested to look for the dog's owner and hinted that Archie may get a reward for doing so. Archie daydreams of his possible rewards like a date with the dog's owner or perhaps material gains. When they reach the dog's owner's home, it turns out that the owner is a lonely old lady who can't afford to give any reward but a simple thank you. Archie concluded that it was the best reward he had received.
