  • 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.

  • Mr.Lodge: Think it's time for new leadership, especially in the creative front?
    July 05, 2018, 03:09:04 AM
  • 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).
    July 05, 2018, 12:12:47 AM
  • Vegan Jughead: I'm sure it has been; it was a dumb concept LOL.  The RIVERDALE comic is on hiatus until at least early 2019 and I'm skeptical it will ever come back.
    July 04, 2018, 04:37:17 PM
  • Tuxedo Mark: Has Riverdale Digest been cancelled? There hasn't been a new issue since #7 on March 21.

Oldest Archie item you own
« on: April 02, 2016, 09:32:12 PM »
I'm still relatively new to finding and collecting Archie but so far the oldest thing I've found is Archie 132. It's in bad shape but I still got it. Haven't seen anything older yet.

Surprisingly I've had a hard time finding any old Archie.

The oldest item in my collection is a somewhat beat-up copy of Pep #60 from March, 1947. It was given to me as a gift when I bought some other comics from a user on this forum.

The Oldest Item That I own in my Archie Collection is:

Pep #26!

I do have a few pre-archie (MLJ) Titles and Issues, but if we don't count those, than the above is the oldest.

That's awesome! Do you guys get your stuff online a lot of the time?

I'm always hesitant to because I really love going to stores and going through all the old stuff but I can't believe how difficult it's been to actually find old Archie issues.

The oldest Archie item I've got is a copy of Archie Comics #53 (Nov-Dec 1951) that I found on the old B&N Marketplace a number of years ago. But the oldest Archie-published item I've got is Jolly Jingles #15 (Fall 1944).

When comics started to be described as “collectibles” in the mid-1970s Archie comics weren’t thought of in the same light — they were considered throwaway fluff for kids, so the vast majority were just thrown away … even (especially) if they were kept they were well used, often drawn in or worse, and stored in poor conditions … so they are exceedingly rare today (though still not in demand so the prices are usually comparatively trivial if you can find them at all — and people don’t bother selling them since they don’t go for much …
 
The oldest physical copies I have are actually “Archie Adventure” imprints from the early ‘60s (the Fly & the Jaguar) …

The oldest item I own is Archie #3. I found it a bookstore/café for about $4. I wish I can find older stuff but when I saw that it was #3 I snatched it while it was available  :)

Yeah I sort of figured that Archie isn't the most collectible but it's still a surprise. I went to a local small comic store here and actually found a decent amount of stuff.

I told him any Archie he finds to let me know because I've had a really hard time with it.

Do you live on the east coast? Where I live (Missouri) there is virtually no Archie to be had besides the reboot.

I live in Colorado actually. So yeah it's been tough to come by here. I've found a decent amount of 70's-80's
Life with Archie, Betty and Veronica, and little Archie.

I've only found 2 issues of just the normal Archie series though.

My Girlfriend has been trying to find any old Sabrina the Teenage Witch and that has been ever harder. We have found 3 issues of that.

Most anything from the ‘90s is hard too — as bad as from the ‘60s at least — they tried to diversify and “re-invent” a lot of stuff then and people either loved it & kept it, or more often hated it and trashed any they had bought (a lot was pretty weird at the time)

I found it pretty easy to find '90s Archies.  Of course, that might be because I bought all of them in the '90s when they came out...   ::)

The oldest Archie comic I have is not that old, it's from the 80's. An Archie Annual Digest.

You know those Vintage Buttons the Archie Comics site has for sale for just .99 cents per button, how vintage do you think they really are for that little of a price tag?
