  • DeCarlo Rules: I just took a peek at online preview pages of Superteens vs. Crusaders #2, and I'm actually starting to get pretty excited about this. Not from an Archie-centric POV, because it's not classic Archie-style... but the Mighty Crusaders are looking mighty good to me, maybe better than I've ever seen them done. I don't expect that to make any difference in sales, since practically no one else cares about those characters...  :(

  • DeCarlo Rules: Ah, I was hoping for some kind of surprise. The usual ongoing titles plus TPB collections of VIXENS Vol. 1, ARCHIE'S BIG BOOK Vol. 4 (Fairy Tales), and the previously-announced debut issues of the miniseries ARCHIE MEETS BATMAN '66 and ARCHIE'S SUPERTEENS VS. MIGHTY CRUSADERS. It's nice to see a second issue of Dan Parent's BETTY & VERONICA FRIENDS FOREVER, which means that it's bi-monthly, for however long it lasts.  :smitten:

Story Jumps In Newest Archie Jumbo Digest
« on: February 16, 2018, 11:37:42 PM »
Anybody else got this? It's the one where The Gang are following Ronica around the world to ski resorts. I've seen this before in other Archie digests. Why doesn't ACP make sure they're giving us the stories in their whole form? Somebody's not editing right. I mean, we've seen words being misspelled and such, but splitting stories is outright incompetence....  >:(

You mean it's a story which breaks down into several chapters, but somehow or other they didn't print the chapters together one after the other,  but instead spread them out and interspersed other reprints between the chapters? Or did they only print one chapter of a multi-chapter story and forget about the rest of it altogether?

One thing I've noticed in some stories is that a page ends on a gag, and that functionally, that could actually be the end of the story, but instead it continues on for more pages in the same vein with additional "punch lines" along the way based on the initial idea before getting to the end. It occurred to me that the story construction could actually be purposefully designed that way so that there's an option to edit the story and reprint it with fewer pages, as long as it ends on one of the "punch line" panels. Then again, with some of the newer 5-page shorts the basic story idea almost seems like a throwaway, where it feels like the setup would have allowed it to continue the situation beyond where it ends on Page 5 with a joke -- the story seems like it has just barely gotten started, and could have continued to develop a series of gags based on the original idea that it started with. Some of the newer Dan Parent stories leave me feeling that way, like he could have continued on for another 5 or 10 pages with more developments on the same idea, because it was a good idea that was barely exploited to its potential advantage for humor before coming to a quick end.

Both. They actually did both...

Could it possibly one of those rare continued stories where the next part originally appeared in the following issue (and would presumably be reprinted in the next issue of the same digest)? Or did they edit the story it in such a way that at least the story ended on one of those "punch line" gags?

Well, it just...ended. I think it was on page 9. There was no "to be continued"....

Hmm... that sure sounds like an editorial mistake, unless it's just your individual copy of that particular issue that got messed up at the printers, and is missing pages. What issue # was it? I stopped getting it with Archie Jumbo Comics Digest #285 (January), which sounds like it's the previous issue. A timely decision on my part, it would seem.

Yep, you did. 😁 Number 286....

Sounds like a printing error.  I checked my copy of #286 and assume that you are talking about the Ski the World story.  In my digest, Page 10 is on the back of Page 9 and then the story ends on Page 11 with a little END box in the last panel.  The back of that page starts The Andrews Family Tree story.

I'll have to read again. I didn't see page 10 or 11.....
