  • Tuxedo Mark: Picked up "Riverdale" on DVD. Ripped the first disc to my hard drive and am gonna start reviewing episode 1 tomorrow. :)

  • Vegan Jughead: Thanks DCR!  That's awesome news.

  • DeCarlo Rules: You won't have to wait longer than next Wednesday, Vegan. The Best of Josie is on Diamond's confirmed shipping list for next week.
    Today at 02:42:59 PM
  • Vegan Jughead: Good point on the pricing.  The new Josie and the Pussycats trade is only $9.99 and I can't wait for it.  I can't imagine they're moving many digests at retail.  The hardcore geeks like us subscribe but I doubt our numbers are large.

  • DeCarlo Rules: @Vegan - That investment capital helped pay for Adam Hughes, and printer's bill, plus they resurrected a few of their old cancelled solicits on trade paperbacks that the work had already been completed on.

  • DeCarlo Rules: I'm going to take a wild guess and say that ARCHIE AND ME DIGEST must contain a new 20-page story. But why wouldn't they advertise that fact? It's baffling trying to guess what they're thinking.
    Today at 09:37:32 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: So Double Digests are 160 pages for $5.99, but ARCHIE AND ME DIGEST is 128 pages for $6.99? Yet somehow a 416-page trade paperback is priced at $9.99?? Or $12.99 for 104 pages of Adam Hughes reprints. I guess they must be using the old "dart-board pricing" method!
    Today at 09:28:34 AM
  • Vegan Jughead: Archie November 2017 solicitations: Digests are up to $5.99!  Annuals are $6.99 so I guess Jumbos will be $7.99?  No one is paying that.  Subscribe or don't bother.  [link]

  • Vegan Jughead: DCR and Downloader, remember they also got that investment capital last year.  I think it was for a few hundred thousand dollars.  I don't know how long that will last, but I'm sure they're using that.
    Today at 06:46:26 AM
  • BettyReggie: I saw the November 2017 Solicitations. Fiona Staples is doing a few covers. I can't wait to see what they look like though because they didn't show them yet.
    Today at 06:06:23 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: @The Downloader - What cash flow they have is coming not from the floppy titles, but from the digests and trade collections. They're just spewing out different one-shots and short-run series to see if they can find something that will last.
    Today at 01:20:05 AM
  • The Downloader: How can ACP continue to push out new titles, when they dont have the money to back it up?!

  • Tuxedo Mark: Crap, I just remembered I forgot to pick up "Riverdale" today.
    August 16, 2017, 03:15:05 PM
  • BettyReggie: I asked Adam Hughes on twitter who is working on B&V #4 . He said Rachael Stott is working on it.

  • Tuxedo Mark: I'll pick mine up tomorrow at Wally World. Getting only the DVD edition for now, so I can rip the files to my computer and review the episodes for my blog.

  • Tuxedo Mark: I didn't watch it, but, yeah, "Riverdale" won a lot. Good for them. :)

NEW BETTY & VERONICA SERIES COMING OUT IN JULY!!!!!!!
« on: April 12, 2016, 11:24:32 AM »
I just saw the news on Twitter and Archie Comics themselves said that the new B&V series will come out in July!   And the variant comics look awesome!

JonInIowaCity

Very exciting news day!!   :D :D :D :D

BettyReggie

The variants are nice but how come there only 4 to choose from? I really thought there will be at least 22 like Archie's reboot. I love Veronica Fish's the most.

Is there a link to see the new variant covers for this Betty and Veronica reboot?

JonInIowaCity

They are here at this link.

I really like the Stephanie Buscema variant cover.

BettyReggie

I also like Chip Zdarsky & Stephanie B's covers. Cliff's is alright but it's better than Francvilla's cover.

The only other variant that I kind of like is Cliff's. The others I do not like. I also really like what is going to be the regular cover.

There's 6 listed there, and they don't say that that's all, others may be kept for timed release to keep up interest, or not turned in yet... Too early to say.

I don't think they will have 22 like the Archie reboot. I am thinking more like the Jughead reboot for variant #1 covers.

True, and they may not feel they can afford to pay that many artists this time around.

My absolute favorite variant cover was Cliff's.  To me it captures B&V's different styles and personalities perfectly.

"Pops’ Chocklit Shoppe is being taken over by a huge coffee company," it reads. "When Betty and Veronica go head-to-head over the issue, all bets are off! Friendships will shatter. Cities will burn. Nails will be broken."

Sounds right up my alley. This is much better than the Jughead and Archie storylines. Hopefully the plot moves along more swiftly too.

If ACP were smart they would have preorder links up ready to go for this and Kevin but who knows? They might cancel that or some of these covers.

I like all the variant covers except Chip's. It looks very 80s to me. I especially like Francesco's and Cliff's covers. Cliff could even draw the Betty and Veronica comic when Adam drops out. Veronica Fish's cover is also very creative and detailed.

DeCarlo Rules

True, and they may not feel they can afford to pay that many artists this time around.

You can only pull off something like 22 cover variants once in a great while, and get retailers to go for it. (That's not even counting the additional dozen or so Retailer Exclusive variants).  Most of those dealers couldn't afford to speculate like that on even one title every month, because there's 200 other books every month with variant covers out there to think about, too.
