  • DeCarlo Rules: What I don't understand is why they're trying to discourage subscriptions to B&V FRIENDS Jumbo digest. It's been published at 10 times per year frequency for the last 3 years -- just like the other B&V jumbo digest. So if they're both published just as often, why do they offer a choice of 10 issue or 20 issue subscriptions for BETTY & VERONICA, but only a 6 issue subscription for B&V FRIENDS? You can get a 12-issue subscription to B&V FRIENDS on the website, but if I remember correctly, the printed ad for subs only offers the 6-issue sub option. Why isn't it the same option as the other digests (10 issues or 20 issues), if they're all published 10 times a year? And they ARE.

  • 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. :/

  • 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.

  • 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).

Reboot of Archie Comics Timeline
« on: February 20, 2017, 11:38:08 PM »
With the reboot of the Archie, Jughead, Reggie and Me, Betty and Veronica, and Josie & the Pussycats, is it all one big timeline or is each series on its own timeline and there is no cross over between each issues series?

They each have their own timeline. Things happen in each book that can't be happening in the other books, like Jughead fighting his new principal and Pops losing his shop. Some people think they have the same timeline just because they are all reboots, but they don't. I have not seen any signs of crossing over between them.

Yeah, they're all separate timelines. Gets kinda confusing.

Is Veronica a new student in all of them? I haven't been able to read the newest comics in quite a while, so I don't really know what's happening. But she was definitely new to Riverdale in the "Archie" timeline... is that the case for all?

In Adam Hughes' B&V, he jumps right into a Betty VERSUS Veronica story, which is implying we should be shocked at this as if they have a long-established history as BFFs. Sure doesn't seem like the same characters who are appearing in ARCHIE.

Have there been any references of stories from one book in another in the new Archie series? Just wondering....  ???

In Adam Hughes' B&V #2, I believe it was (going on memory here because I don't actually own the comic) there was a subtle reference to Chip Zdarksy's first story arc in JUGHEAD. In fact, so subtle that most readers probably didn't catch it, and subtle enough that there's an ambiguity there about whether the reference represents 'continuity' per se, or some kind of in-joke.

Having said that, I am now pausing to reflect on the recent announcement that the current JUGHEAD writer, Ryan North, is slated to be replaced by the team of Mark Waid and Ian Flynn. I wonder if this isn't a response both to lagging sales on JUGHEAD, and confusion among readers as to whether the New Riverdale titles are all part of some sort of Archie Universe. It occurs to me that Adam Hughes' BETTY AND VERONICA arc is slated only to run through the 3rd issue, and I wonder if the next announcement from ACP might not be that B&V will be co-written by Mark Waid and another (cheap to hire) writer following Hughes' departure in issue #3. ACP may have decided that the New Riverdale titles as a group could benefit from being continuity-wrangled by Waid, hoping that some of ARCHIE's readers might get onboard with the other New Riverdale titles if they were perceived as being all in-continuity.

You can tell when an artist is ugly when she makes her female characters look like neanderthals to compensate.

I liked Erica Henderson's Betty. She is cute. Even her Jughead is cute. I think Derek Charm's Jughead is handsome. I love the way he draws Jughead. I actually got Jughead Volume #2 today. I can't wait to read it.

Yeah, Erica Henderson has two problems:

1.  She draws like a chimp with brain damage.  The fact she even has a career is a joke in and of itself.  Some people went to the Joe Kubert School to learn how to draw comic books.  She went to the Stevie Wonder School of Comic Book Art.

2.  She has low self esteem due to being a fat ugly cow, but instead of dealing with it like normal people do, she forces it on other people with her art and labels her displaced anxieties as "feminism" (short version: she comes from Tumblr).  This ignores the fact that people read fantasy cartoon books to look at good looking drawings of people, not to look at people that look like Erica Henderson.
