  • Tuxedo Mark: Picked up "Riverdale" on DVD. Ripped the first disc to my hard drive and am gonna start reviewing episode 1 tomorrow. :)

  • Vegan Jughead: Thanks DCR!  That's awesome news.
    Today at 06:11:20 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: You won't have to wait longer than next Wednesday, Vegan. The Best of Josie is on Diamond's confirmed shipping list for next week.
    Today at 02:42:59 PM
  • Vegan Jughead: Good point on the pricing.  The new Josie and the Pussycats trade is only $9.99 and I can't wait for it.  I can't imagine they're moving many digests at retail.  The hardcore geeks like us subscribe but I doubt our numbers are large.

  • DeCarlo Rules: @Vegan - That investment capital helped pay for Adam Hughes, and printer's bill, plus they resurrected a few of their old cancelled solicits on trade paperbacks that the work had already been completed on.

  • DeCarlo Rules: I'm going to take a wild guess and say that ARCHIE AND ME DIGEST must contain a new 20-page story. But why wouldn't they advertise that fact? It's baffling trying to guess what they're thinking.
    Today at 09:37:32 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: So Double Digests are 160 pages for $5.99, but ARCHIE AND ME DIGEST is 128 pages for $6.99? Yet somehow a 416-page trade paperback is priced at $9.99?? Or $12.99 for 104 pages of Adam Hughes reprints. I guess they must be using the old "dart-board pricing" method!
    Today at 09:28:34 AM
  • Vegan Jughead: Archie November 2017 solicitations: Digests are up to $5.99!  Annuals are $6.99 so I guess Jumbos will be $7.99?  No one is paying that.  Subscribe or don't bother.  [link]
    Today at 08:32:09 AM
  • Vegan Jughead: DCR and Downloader, remember they also got that investment capital last year.  I think it was for a few hundred thousand dollars.  I don't know how long that will last, but I'm sure they're using that.
    Today at 06:46:26 AM
  • BettyReggie: I saw the November 2017 Solicitations. Fiona Staples is doing a few covers. I can't wait to see what they look like though because they didn't show them yet.
    Today at 06:06:23 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: @The Downloader - What cash flow they have is coming not from the floppy titles, but from the digests and trade collections. They're just spewing out different one-shots and short-run series to see if they can find something that will last.
    Today at 01:20:05 AM
  • The Downloader: How can ACP continue to push out new titles, when they dont have the money to back it up?!
    August 16, 2017, 05:40:53 PM
  • Tuxedo Mark: Crap, I just remembered I forgot to pick up "Riverdale" today.
    August 16, 2017, 03:15:05 PM
  • BettyReggie: I asked Adam Hughes on twitter who is working on B&V #4 . He said Rachael Stott is working on it.

    August 15, 2017, 07:57:03 PM
  • Tuxedo Mark: I'll pick mine up tomorrow at Wally World. Getting only the DVD edition for now, so I can rip the files to my computer and review the episodes for my blog.
    August 15, 2017, 04:31:34 PM
  • BettyReggie: Season #1 of Riverdale came today from target.
    August 15, 2017, 01:00:25 PM

  • Tuxedo Mark: I didn't watch it, but, yeah, "Riverdale" won a lot. Good for them. :)
    August 14, 2017, 03:28:08 PM

Retail reports
« on: June 13, 2016, 02:32:06 PM »
Let's make this an all-purpose thread for reporting our sightings , etc. of Archie stuff ~ especially the ACTUAL comic books and digests (I guess many?? people here would tend to reserve " comic books " for " standard " 32-pagers so thinking of that I wrote it that way)  :2funny: !
  I bought a Jughead and Archie?? at a Safeway here in San Francisco t'other day , " the Castro Safeway " . They also had World Of Archie , IIRC . I was going to look up the last issue of the 32-page " last " B&V series ~ but this computer workshop's computers blocks comics.org !!!!!!!!!!! FRICKEN FRATTEN RITZEN RATTEN .
  Can anyone direct me , please , to a site where the last few ishes of the now-discontinued last B&V covers are up , please ? :'(

...Thank you .
  When I was fairly new back here in San Francisco , in a Walgreen's store (On Mission Street , on the same block as the ~ alas ~ now-closed Cartoon Art Museum .) , in their magazine rack ~ I saw BETTY AND VERONICA #277 . I bought it .
  They had a couple of copies , neatly racekd , no other comics in their racks .
  It odd/interesting to me how you sometimes see this , just a couple , or just one , even , comic book showing up in a " normal " magazine rack .
  Unfortunately , I missed #278  :'( ~ I recently realized that I missed the " final : ARCHIE ish , #66 , devili shly  :) , too :'( ...........

Both ARCHIE #666 and BETTY AND VERONICA #278 have 6 different covers, all by Dan Parent. At least they both went out on a high note.
