  • DeCarlo Rules: That's pretty much the whole point of having an internet -- it connects you to entertainment, information, and people who would otherwise be too far away from you physically, or would involve much greater effort on your part to connect with. And although there are some advantages for comic book collectors inherent in the direct-market dedicated comic book shop system, the major BIG (obvious) DISadvantage is that only a few thousand of those shops exist, compared to the huge number of retailers who used to carry comic books along with their other products back in the days of the "newsstand distribution system".

  • Tuxedo Mark: The only "local" comic shop within "reasonable" distance of my house is 18 miles away, in the next county. Yeah, no, I'll continue getting my comics digitally.

  • DeCarlo Rules: @Archiecomicxfan215 - FCBD comic books may be free to you, but the retailer has to PAY for those comic books he gives away for free. The publishers of the FCBD comics make no profit off them, and they're distributed to retailers by Diamond Comics for free, but they have to charge comic shop owners money for them, because paper and printing costs money. Your local comic shop owner loses a small amount of money with every FCBD comic book he gives away. Of course the whole idea behind FCBD is that sampling those free comic books will create interest in customers actually BUYing the retail versions of those FCBD comic books later on.

  • DeCarlo Rules: Don't forget to pick up the FCBD issue of DIE KITTY DIE: I Love You to Death! by Dan & Fernando from Chapterhouse Comics! Oh, and I guess if you care about that RIVERDALE thing, you could pick up the FCBD issue where Pop Tate eavesdrops on all the conversations of his teenage customers (makes him sound a little creepy, if you ask me...) Doesn't an adult business proprietor have more important things to worry about???

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?
