  • DeCarlo Rules: @Tuxedo Mark - Well, they came out in comic shops, but I guess that doesn't help you. If you've got a regular bookstore (or supermarket) somewhere nearby, they should have the digest, anyway.

Quick Jughead Digest Questions....

...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....

steveinthecity

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....

DeCarlo Rules

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:

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!

DeCarlo Rules

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.
