  • Vegan Jughead: I'm gonna get it but I'm waiting for it to be at Barnes and Noble which I think will be July 10th or so. They released it to the direct market (comic shops) first.

  • DeCarlo Rules: @irishmoxie -- It's definitely complete. All six of the 1958-59 Sy Reit/Bob White original issues, plus the feature-length "Good Guys of the Galaxy" by Tom DeFalco & Fernando Ruiz from ARCHIE #655, and three 5-page digest shorts that guest-starred Cosmo -- and the complete first issue of the Ian Flynn/Tracy Yarley COSMO (2017) thrown in for good measure. It follows the same layout/format as the previous JUGHEAD'S TIME POLICE, even though that didn't carry the "Archie Comics Presents..." trade dress. Not a bad buy for $11.

  • DeCarlo Rules: ...Marvel's earlier JOHN CARTER, WARLORD OF MARS in there, so the DE Tarzan comics need to go in a different box, and SHEENA (also a recent DE title) and DC's RIMA THE JUNGLE GIRL will help fill up that box.
    June 11, 2018, 07:40:48 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Recently. DE's unauthorized LORD OF THE JUNGLE Tarzan adaptations (and its authorized THE GREATEST ADVENTURE) won't fit into my existing box of previous Tarzan comics from Gold Key, DC, and Dark Horse, so I have to start a new box. Logically these get filed with DE's unauthorized WARLORD OF MARS comics (including DEJAH THORIS) and their authorized JOHN CARTER, WARLORD OF MARS. But I also want to squeeze Marve;
    June 11, 2018, 07:38:48 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Interesting. I tend not to group titles by publisher at all, if the characters were not created as work-for-hire (meaning the publisher is legally considered the 'author' of the character). Do they belong to that publisher's "universe" (assuming it has one)? There are some publishers like Dynamite Entertainment where the vast majority of the titles they publish are licensed, and thus were "inherited" from other publishers. Therefore it makes more sense to me to group them together in boxes with similar characters. Flash Gordon, The Phantom, and Mandrake comics (regardless of who the actual publisher was) go together in the same box because they're all classic adventure heroes licensed from Hearst Entertainment (formerly King Features Syndicate). Pulp fiction heroes like The Shadow, Doc Savage, and The Spider (regardless of the fact that the latter did not originate with the same publisher as the first two) also get grouped together. Space considerations allowing, Tarzan (and other Edgar Rice Burroughs adaptations) might share the same box with Sheena and Rima, but NOT with Ka-Zar, because he's a Marvel Universe character.

  • rusty: I do keep all Star Trek series together in their own section and all Star Wars books together.  I also keep all 2000AD titles together and manga books get their own section.  For titles that have switched publishers, I usually keep them all with the publisher that I identify them with the most.  Tarzan has been published by a variety of publishers, but I keep them with Dell/Gold Key.  Conan is starting to get a bit close with all the success Dark Horse has had, but I still identify Conan more with Marvel.
    June 11, 2018, 06:27:26 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Believe it or not, I even have a box labeled "Pseudo-manga" that contains comics published by American companies and created by American creators like Astro Boy & Racer X (Now Comics), Battle of the Planets (Gold Key & Top Cow/Image), Captain Harlock (Malibu), Godzilla (Dark Horse) and Ultraman. I just want to keep those separate from the boxes of real translated manga in floppy comic format.
    June 11, 2018, 03:34:17 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Well. the problem is when you get titles with licensed characters that aren't owned by the publisher. So if you collect Star Trek comics, you'd have different series published by Gold Key, Marvel, DC, and IDW (and I probably missed one in there). It doesn't make sense to me to put them in different boxes by publisher, but to each his own. Disney comics would be another example. There are even some instances where if I like a certain artist enough, I will put all his work regardless of publisher or characters into one box, like Paul Gulacy, Steve Rude, or Mike Allred (and file them chronologically from older to newer, rather than alphabetically). Those are examples where my interest in the creator far exceeds my relative interest in whatever characters are involved.
    June 11, 2018, 03:14:29 PM
  • rusty: That makes sense.  There are many ways that people can file books.  What I do is file by company or category and then alphabetically within each section.  My first category is Richie Rich then Archie, then other Harvey titles, then Disney, then other humor/kids books, then by company (unless it is a company where I don't have very many books from them.  Star Trek and Star Wars each get their own section as well.  I will probably revamp a bit when I do my next major sort/merge.  The biggest section by far for me is DC.
    June 11, 2018, 09:28:59 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: I don't even file my comics alphabetically. I file them according to how closely they're related to other titles, but it's all dependent on the number of issues I have of any given title, and what will fit into a single box. Fpr ACP comics I just put all the short-run series (whether an actual miniseries or just a not particularly successful title) into one box. Even though some of those short run series star Jughead, and I could as easily file those together with the main JUGHEAD title in another box. For longer running ACP titles, "girl" titles are sorted into different boxes than "boy" titles. Eventually when I have enough issues of BETTY (and BETTY AND ME and BETTY'S DIARY) they'll get their own box, and VERONICA will get her own box.
    June 10, 2018, 09:49:06 AM
  • rusty: I file Jughead under J and Reggie under R in all of their incarnations, though I do file the original Lois Lane and Jimmy Olsen books under S since that keeps them with the Superman books and also because they kept that title throughout their entire run.  If anyone wants to look up Jughead or Reggie in Overstreet, though, they will have to look under A for the early issues.

  • BettyReggie: I can't wait to get that Reggie book. It's coming out the day after my 39th Birthday.

Well, to be fair, that is another universe's version of the gang.

That's what I keep trying to tell people, but as far as some people and ACP are concerned, they consider it "the real deal" universe.

BUT... we are talking about RIVERDALE here. And Adam Huges' BETTY & VERONICA is the one they are reprinting along with the other New Riverdale #1 issues in the trade paperback THE ROAD TO RIVERDALE (or RIVERDALE DIGEST #1 if you're too cheap to shell out for the full-sized TP), and those use the TV series logo, so it's fair to say that ACP is trying to establish a link between the New Riverdale comics and the TV series. Just so you know where I was going with that.

Now, when talking about the comics, which do you think TeenVogue is more likely interested in? Probably the ones ACP sent them as research material for their article. No, I can't see the TeenVogue writer sifting through old classic Archie floppies or digests researching the differences between RIVERDALE and the comics. Scanning through a couple dozen issues of New Riverdale comics sounds like more their speed. And it does account for their saying that B&V are not friends in the comics, compared to the TV show. Besides, I'm sure if it weren't for the TV series, no one connected to TeenVogue would be caught dead reading comics, and if they were, it sure wouldn't be Archie classic-style comics... if they could actually find some of those. But I don't see TeenVogue writers as spending a lot of time cruising the magazine racks at Walmart or Barnes & Noble, do you?

Judging from next week's Riverdale previews, haters of the young-Grundy-seducing-Archie storyline and lovers of traditional Grundy might get some justice.

i haven't watched this week's episode (or next week's previews) yet, but I wouldn't mind finding out that Grundy the music teacher has a spinster aunt with the same name who is also a teacher who maybe comes out of retirement to return to teaching at Riverdale High School.

I was so happy when I saw the preview! I'm fine with change, but the whole Grundy-Archie thing is horrible.

I, for one, am a very happy camper with how Aguirre-Sacasa is handling the show. I have been loving his work on Afterlife, so I might be a little biased. I think that any of the doubts that I might have had with casting has been laid to rest. The cast is pitch-perfect. The show is very different from the source material, and from the get I’m always worried when a show sites Twin Peaks as one of its references - because most of those shows don’t get it right. But this show has taken a part of that formula, and grounded it - then placed it in the Riverdale landscape with versions of these classic archetypes.

I’m kind of late to the game, but I’m glad I just binged the first season in its entirety - and have started watching the second season. I know I’m in for a real treat.

I am really enjoying this show and I must say KJ Apa has been at his best. I am also inspired by the Southside Serpents gang as I am a motorbiker myself. I purchased this leather jacket at USA Leather Jackets. Even there is a coupon code offer also going on. For more details, visit the site now
