  • 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.
    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.

Author Topic: THANK YOU, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, for making Archie x Miss Grundy canon!  (Read 6283 times)

This is the official thank you thread for Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, creative genius and script writing scribe of immeasurable talent who is apparently behind the idea to change Miss Grundy into a hot babe so Archie can have a sexual adult relationship with her! 

For over 70 years, fans of Archie Comics have asked themselves, Betty or Veronica?  Who should Archie choose?  However, one brave soul, a screen writing legend behind such Citizen Kane-esque masterpieces as random Glee episodes and the 15th remake of Carrie, was asking the real question everyone really wanted addressed.  Why can't Miss Grundy be hot, and why can't Archie have sex with her in a TV program?

This idea festered in Roberto's head for nearly three decades after he read one Archie Comics digest, the only Archie Comic he ever read, until the idea for a daring new television program was formed!  Who knows how many Golden Globes this incredible television series will win?  I'm going to say if it doesn't win at least 20, there will be outrage and riots in the streets!

Regardless, I'd like to thank Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa for his excelent contribution to Archie Comics lore, that Archie had a sexual relatioship with Miss Grundy before either Betty or Veronica.  Thank God that Archie CEO Jon Goldwater made Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa chief creative officer for the entire company, because this is a man who knows what he's doing!

I say we all give three cheers for screenwriting legend Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa!

Huzzah!
Huzzah!
Huzzah!


May your legend and immense talent continue to grow and brighten the lives of all!

What, no The Town That Dreaded Sundown?

(Really, as an aside to anyone reading this who thinks AwA is a masterpiece, watch that film. It's amazing how trite the whole "small town with creepy secrets and bloody killings" premise is when the characters aren't named Archie, Betty, Veronica, etc.)

Isn't he the Chief Operating Officer now?

There's a great old story where Miss Grundy swoons because Archie kisses her cheek. Of course, she didn't look like Sara Habel so it was actually funny.

LOL this is hilarious
Does he have a Twitter? We should all tweet him at the same time about this hahaha!!

Maybe if we lobby for Veronica/Mr. Weatherbee at the same time.

The Twitter account I have was for something else and I don't use it anymore (I just read Milo Yiannopoulos's twitter feed which I have bookmarked  :2funny: ), but someone else should do that surely.  XD

But seriously, I do agree with the sentiment behind this thread, and I can't understand why Archie is allowing Aguirre-Sacasa to take the property in a direction that will probably hurt the company in the long run by fooling people into thinking the squeaky clean old Archie is boring.

I hope this show is as trashy as it's being made out to be. I hope they go all out and make it a trashy, sexy, scandalous teen drama instead of holding back if they are not going to make it close to the comics (which they aren't).

Because the current CEO, at least the one in control, doesn't like the comics either.  He ran them down as moldy and olfashioned in a press blurb before they dumped the house style.  But apparently, he knows what's best for us fans!

Also I think we need three more cheers for writing legend Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa for changing Jughead from a food fanatic to a coffee fiend!

Huzzah!

Wait--this ISN'T a belated April Fool's Day joke?! Seriously?! :( They have lost their minds if this is true! What is WRONG with these people?! >:(

What does this topic mean Archie x Ms. Gundy? Does it mean he loves her.

That's awesome. I can't wait to see it. Are Betty & Veronica going walk on them going at it?

If they do, they'll probably just shrug because that's the status quo in Riverdale. Moose is going to have a 'soft spot for milfs.' Reggie asks Archie if he 'tapped any milf ass this summer.' I'd be amazed if Jughead isn't in on it too.

Someone in the Riverdale thread said something about Archie Comics wondering what they would do if the show doesn't succeed, but how will it help if it does succeed? This show is so different from their backlog of stories and even from the reboot, there won't be many new crossover fans from tv, if there ever are many for shows based on comics. And what about when the show ends in, at the most, seven years?

I don't think it will get picked up for a full season.  They're probably banking on the comic book TV trend, but that's a super hero trend.  If it does, yes, you're correct, the benefit for the IP overall is definitely negative.  If they made Roberto "Chief Operating Officer" like you said, that is really bewildering to me if these are his "awesome" ideas.  If Archie was a public company, they probably would have taken it away from current management at this point.

I really hate the thought of the of this becoming a show.  Let's hope not, and to Roberto I say, stick to drawing rule 34.

makes me want to send A HUGE FU to ACP!
