  • 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;

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
    June 10, 2018, 06:42:06 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Yeah, I never understood why publishers felt the need to point that out on the covers of a comic book, like maybe someone didn't really know who REGGIE was, and might buy it just because they noticed the words "Archie's Rival" above the big letters that spelled REGGIE? Same with "Archie's Pal" or "Superman's Pal" or "Superman's Girl Friend" -- like some potential buyer wouldn't know who Jughead, Jimmy Olsen, or Lois Lane was, but would know who Archie or Superman was? Just assume you're selling the product to idiots, I guess. Is anyone really filing REGGIE under "A" for Archie's Pal in their collections??
    June 10, 2018, 05:42:02 AM
  • rusty: In it's first incarnation, Reggie was titled ARCHIE'S RIVAL, REGGIE.  It wasn't until after the title was resurrected nearly a decade later that it became REGGIE and then REGGIE AND ME.

  • Tuxedo Mark: I've never understood why those old titles had "and Me" in them, anyway. Why not just name the titles after the starring characters?

Author Topic: Riverdale Speculation Thread: Who Will Be The Second Death in Season One?  (Read 1516 times)

We all know that Jason Blossom is dead in "Riverdale." He disappeared on July 4th in an effort to escape his family with his pregnant girlfriend, Polly Cooper. He was found 2-3 months later in the lake with a bullet in his head.


I recently heard that there will be a second death in season one of "Riverdale." Here's your chance to speculate...


Who do you think will be the second murder victim and why?

Yet another death?  ::) ::) ::)
Just kill them all already and be done with it ;)

Doesn't sound edgelord enough for Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.  Maybe every character will be raped by family members before they're all killed off.   ;D   Or maybe Archie will get AIDS and spread it to the rest of the cast.

LOL. Oh man, this reminds me, I definitely have been thinking about this a lot because last night, I kid you not, I dreamed about Riverdale and I saw them in a classroom and I think it was Archie (I don't really remember)who put a gun in his mouth and  pulled the trigger! And I remember thinking "holy sh!t what is wrong with this show!it is getting worse".

Any posts that actually attempt to answer the question?

Well, Archie Comics' dignity is likely to be another causality, if it's still alive that is.   ;D

Hal & Alice were fighting. And not in so many words Alice said she had a abortion. So that had to be Chic Cooper. The older brother.

Here's an interesting thought. What if they didn't have an abortion, but put their son up for adoption. What if Chic ends up appearing in the series later on as a disgruntled reunited adoptee? What if he's a suspect that we haven't yet appeared on the show?

BettyReggie

It seems like Hal Cooper would want a son rather than 2 daughters.  Maybe that's why Betty seems to be a tomboy, she likes to fixs cars. She's not too girly. She has more guys that are friends than girls.

Hm....

Who are the most likely to die...

Joaquin: Not based on anyone from the comic, is part of whatever is going on with Big Bad Daddy Jones and burning the car and taking evidence. He's got the relationship with Kevin to give him some sympathy (even though he is using Kevin, he does seem to be growing attached to him) and is in a dangerous spot.

Kevin Keller: And to be fair, Kevin's in a dangerous position because of the above. Say he finds out more than he supposed to (J is keeping Jason's jacket). Say, the sheriff's son finds the jacket, he does need to be taken care of. Serves him right for dumping Betty for Veronica.

Big Bad Daddy Jones: Well, he seems to be playing everyone and will likely be at ground zero when the crazy bomb explodes in Riverdale. And he feels he needs to keep evidence as insurance. Someone is out to get him or would want him dealt with.

Sheriff Keller: I can see him getting killed by the killer. Heck, he tried to jail one of the only two people who are actually coming close to finding the real killer.                                               

Mary Andrews: Hey, look who came back...TO DIE??? Maybe.

Hal Cooper: Remember when we thought Alice was the bad one?!? He and the Blossoms hate each other enough to kill one another.

Polly Cooper: And look who is in the middle of the blood feud. Personally, I think she's crazy and Jason's killer. I don't trust these Coopers. Even the nice one is slightly unhinged. I mean, I'm sure the Blossoms are evil...and possibly into inbreeding, but they do seem to really love Jason and are saddened by his death. So her telling Archie what she "suspects" doesn't float the boat with me.

Old lady Blossom. I think her name is Rose: Just old age.

Midge: Granted, we don't have any visual evidence she exists at all...

Reggie: Sorry dude, you're expandable.

Jughead: Turns out, he's a ghost narrating the story!!




DeCarlo Rules

Wow, how many episodes so far? And they killed one (who?) already, with another one due at any time now?
So, sort of like reverse family-planning or something?  I like this trend. 2 in one season. So carry the one, hiatus, summer season...
I like the way the way the numbers are adding up on this trend!   ;D
