Refresh History
  • DeCarlo Rules: @Tuxedo Mark - Archie Double Digest #284 (cover-dated Jan. 2018) was the last issue to appear using the "Double Digest" logo. All issues since then have appeared under the title Archie Jumbo Comics Digest. Issue #288 is scheduled to ship Apr. 25th, and #289 is scheduled to ship May 30th. If you're searching on Amazon, maybe you need to type in "Archie Jumbo Comics Digest" instead of "Archie Double Digest". Except for Archie and Me Digest, all the remaining ongoing classic Archie digest issues in 2018 have been Jumbo Comics digests.

  • rusty: They have a cover for #288 on, but no date.  Maybe it will come out later than normal.

  • Tuxedo Mark: Has Archie Comics Double Digest been cancelled? #288 isn't listed for preorder on Amazon.

  • Tuxedo Mark: My review of "Color Coded", a 1980s Cheryl story:  Still, that's not as odd as the fact that, despite the cover, there's not a Halloween-themed story in the entire issue.

  • irishmoxie: I think they just want you to use comiXology. I prefer the kindle app to comiXology. Much easier to swipe through pages.
    March 06, 2018, 01:49:17 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Maybe there's some slight modification to the PDF files they use in the ComiXology app to adapt it to feature-specific things in Amazon's Kindle reader app, and that takes a little while for them to convert the files? Just a wild guess.
    March 05, 2018, 06:20:53 AM
  • Vegan Jughead: That's weird since Amazon owns Comixology.
    March 03, 2018, 08:20:53 PM
  • irishmoxie: A lot of times Amazon's digital comics' releases are later than Comixology's.
    March 03, 2018, 11:51:24 AM
  • Tuxedo Mark: Yeah, it's the digital version.
    March 03, 2018, 08:34:18 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Oh, and if you're talking about the digital version, then it might have a different release date, too. Amazon's digital comics are really ComiXology's digital comics. Amazon owns ComiXology. Most publishers have a same-day-and-date print & digital release policy, but ACP's might be different, or it could just be an odd fluke.

  • DeCarlo Rules: Comic book shops gor VIXENS #4 on February 28th. Sometimes Amazon may get products on a different date, because the bookseller market is serviced by a different distribution system. Could be later, or sometimes, earlier, but usually only by a few days or a week.

Riverdale, I finally caught up
« on: December 04, 2017, 06:16:52 AM »
I recently decided to check out this show and first went to Netflix to watch season 1 and then caught up with season 2 with my On Demand and the CW app.  It's really a great show even though it completely twists all the Archie characters.  I actually think they could have done this show without the Archie skin and used completely original characters and locations.

As a long, long time Archie comics fan, there's one thing in the series that makes me really sad.  I'm a HUGE Archie and Betty shipper and it upset me how Betty got completely friendzoned by Archie in the first episode.  And then they paired Betty with Jughead (still really unsure how I feel about that, lol) and of course Archie and Veronica.  I really wanted to see Betty and Archie as a couple, especially after seeing what a fantastic Betty that Lili Reinhart is.  She's really amazing and perfectly how I always pictured Betty would be IRL.

My favorite Archie comic ever was the Archie Marries Betty branch of the Life With Archie marriage series.  I've never been happier reading Archie comics.  It was such a great story and I didn't want it to ever end.  I love Archie and Betty as a couple and have always rooted for Betty in my long relationship with Archie comics.

I still hope to see them as a couple, even if it's just for a little while, at some point in this series.  I think the writers gave us Betty/Archie fans a little hope when Kevin remarked that Betty and Archie are "endgame" in the first episode.  Maybe they are planning that for whenever they end the series.

And also, I've also though Veronica and Jughead would make a good and especially interesting couple.  In all my years of reading the comics, I've always felt that they may have secret feelings for each other.  IIRC, I think they even kissed a few times over the years.  I kinda wanted to see that happen in Archie marries Betty, instead of Veronica going with Reggie and Jug with Midge.  That would have made the series even better for me.
