  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Tuxedo Mark: Has Riverdale Digest been cancelled? There hasn't been a new issue since #7 on March 21.

Quick Jughead Digest Questions....
« on: May 11, 2017, 02:10:48 PM »
...Are "Jughead" and "Jughead Jones" digests of the same title, or different ones? If so, did ACP add the last name to distinguish them from each other, and what were the differences? Just wondering, thanks....

Two different titles.  Jughead Jones ran from '77 to '96-ish, the Jughead Digest ran from '89 until 2012.  The Jughead digest had more pages, but I don't recall anything differing as far as content goes.

Ah, thank you.  :) In other words, ACP was squeezing extra moolah for the same character, just with a slightly different title. Slick....

There have been no less than SIX different digest titles devoted to Jughead over the years, so his history of digest reprint titles can probably be the most confusing to sort out. Okay, really only FIVE if you don't count that one-shot CAPTAIN HERO Maybe the most easily confused digest titles are JUGHEAD WITH ARCHIE DIGEST (1974-2005) and the very-similarly-titled JUGHEAD AND ARCHIE DOUBLE DIGEST (2014-now). For simplicity's sake I've omitted the words "comics" and "magazine" where they've appeared over the years in some digest titles, where they've been sometimes inconsistently applied. I've listed all the ACP digest titles here with the ones devoted to Jughead in bold:

   title      1st issue         Last issue         #      notes      
   ARCHIE DIGEST      Aug   1973      Sep   2010      267      Replaced by WORLD OF ARCHIE DOUBLE DIGEST

   ARCHIE'S SUPER HERO SPECIAL COMICS DIGEST         1978         1979      2            
   BETTY AND VERONICA DIGEST      Nov   1980      Oct   2010      208      Continues as B & V FRIENDS DOUBLE DIGEST #209; (Issues #1-4 are ANNUALs)      
   CAPTAIN HERO COMICS DIGEST         1981               1      (One-shot)      
   ARCHIE DOUBLE DIGEST      Jan   1982               now   266+ issues (2016)      
   ARCHIE'S ACTIVITY COMICS DIGEST         1985      Aug   1986      4      Replaced by ARCHIE'S STORY AND GAME DIGEST

   BETTY AND VERONICA ANNUAL DIGEST      Sep   1989      Jun   1997      16      Not to be confused with the identically-titled digest from 1980-83 (#1-4)      
   JUGHEAD DOUBLE DIGEST       Oct   1989      Feb   2014      200      Replaced by JUGHEAD AND ARCHIE DOUBLE DIGEST      
   ARCHIE'S PALS 'n' GALS DOUBLE DIGEST      Nov   1992      Nov   2010      146      Replaced by ARCHIE AND FRIENDS DOUBLE DIGEST      
   VERONICA'S DIGEST      Nov   1992      Dec   1995      6            
   ARCHIE ALL CANADIAN DIGEST      Aug   1996      Aug   1996      1      (One-shot)      
   BETTY'S DIGEST      Nov   1996      Nov   1997      2

   WORLD OF ARCHIE DOUBLE DIGEST      Oct   2010               now      67+ issues (2016); Replaced ARCHIE DIGEST      
   ARCHIE AND FRIENDS DOUBLE DIGEST      Dec   2010      Jan   2014      33      Replaced ARCHIE'S PALS 'n' GALS; replaced by ARCHIE'S FUNHOUSE      
   B & V FRIENDS DOUBLE DIGEST      Jan   2011               now   253+ issues (2016); Continued from BETTY AND VERONICA DIGEST #208      
   ARCHIE'S FUNHOUSE DOUBLE DIGEST      Mar   2014               now   26+ issues (2016); Replaced ARCHIE AND FRIENDS DOUBLE DIGEST      
   JUGHEAD AND ARCHIE DOUBLE DIGEST      Apr   2014               now      26+ issues (2016); Replaced JUGHEAD DOUBLE DIGEST      

How about those nice round numbers that a lot of the digests ended their runs with? ACP used to like to celebrate anniversary issues by replacing an old digest title with an entirely new one!

For the longest time period of time there, Archie, B&V, and Jughead all had two simultaneously-ongoing digest titles. That's because one of them was a standard-sized Comics Digest, while the other was the Double Digest for each of the three.

Note, however, that there was a period of time -- six and half years, from Fall 1989 through Spring 1996 -- when JUGHEAD could claim the distinction of having three ongoing digest titles: Jughead With Archie Comics Digest, Jughead's Double Digest, AND The Jughead Jones Comics Digest Magazine.

Apart from the short runs of Veronica's (Passport) Digest and Betty's Digest, and excluding such titles as Little Archie Digest, The New Archies Digest, Archie's Pals 'n' Gals Double Digest, Archie & Friends Double Digest, which were less focused on ARCHIE as a character than, well ... everyone, even Archie only has Archie Double Digest, Archie's Funhouse Double Digest, and World of Archie Double Digest being published right now, the latter two of which are less-likely to be packed with exclusively-Archie stories. When those three Jughead digests were all being published at the same time, more than 90% of those stories reprinted ALL had Jughead in them.
