  • DeCarlo Rules: @Kallell - Right. That's what I meant. The solicitations that came OUT for the months of November, December, and January... as Diamond Comics Distribution dates their catalogs. And those ACP comics digests solicited in those catalogs would indeed have shipping dates in the months of January, February, and March.  Which means ALL the issues of Archie, World of Archie, Betty and Veronica, and B & V Friends in those solicitations are JUMBO COMICS digests. Unlike those titles, Riverdale Comics Digest, Marvel Comics Digest, and Archie and Me Comics Digest haven't varied in their format from one issue to the next.

  • Archie Comics Collector(Kalell): Very interesting observation DeCarlo Rules. Actually December 2017 was the last month in which there was still three Digest formats: Annual, Comics Double Digest and a Jumbo Comics Digest. As I looked through Jan, Feb and March solicits it seems that the main two formats are Comics Digest 128 pager: Archie and Me and the rest of the main Archie Digests will just be Jumbo Comics Digest 192 pagers. They seem to be doing away with the Annuals and Comics Double Digests for now.

  • DeCarlo Rules: Looking back through the ACP solicitations from November, December and January, it just dawned on me that EVERY regular digest title solicted (except for Archie and Me Comics Digest, Riverdale Comics Digest, and Marvel Comics Digest) is a JUMBO COMICS Digest (192 pages). Are Jumbo Comics Digests the new permanent format? It sure looks that way.

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.

invisifan

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.

irishmoxie

"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.
