  • DeCarlo Rules: What I don't understand is why they're trying to discourage subscriptions to B&V FRIENDS Jumbo digest. It's been published at 10 times per year frequency for the last 3 years -- just like the other B&V jumbo digest. So if they're both published just as often, why do they offer a choice of 10 issue or 20 issue subscriptions for BETTY & VERONICA, but only a 6 issue subscription for B&V FRIENDS? You can get a 12-issue subscription to B&V FRIENDS on the website, but if I remember correctly, the printed ad for subs only offers the 6-issue sub option. Why isn't it the same option as the other digests (10 issues or 20 issues), if they're all published 10 times a year? And they ARE.

  • Tuxedo Mark: Just looked at Archie Comics' subsciption page. Archie Meets Batman '66 is a six-issue miniseries. Archie 1941 is a five-issue miniseries. There's a six-issue subscription for Betty and Veronica: Friends Forever and Vixens (surprisingly; might get transferred to the new B&V title) and a twelve-issue subscription for Riverdale. Riverdale Digest isn't listed, so it looks like it's been cancelled.

  • CAPalace: They're banking on Archie 700 to sell a lot because "lol a new number wow lol" and it will for the first issue but it'll just go back to the average/poor numbers it had before. And YOU KNOW with that writer on B+V it's going to turn into an anti-men, oooh girl power lol violence against men and demeaning men is feminism and fun lol lol Good luck. I'll stick to Ebay to find the DeCarlo stuff thanks.

  • Tuxedo Mark: I'm looking forward to the new B&V series. Personally, I think that previous B&V series by what's-his-name was way worse than anything that Rotante wrote on Vixens.
    July 09, 2018, 08:43:47 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: So, so predictable... they love to exploit NUMBERS, whether it's a single digit (1 or 0) or a triple-digit ending in 00. Good lord, I can't believe they're actually giving Jamie Rotante ANOTHER B&V series to write ruin! She is the worst I've read -- although it's a tough call, Marguerite Bennett was pretty horrible as well. Nick Spencer can actually be quite good as a writer... or pretty bad, depending on the character and the direction. He was great on ANT-MAN and SUPERIOR FOES OF SPIDER-MAN (both books that had a strong humorous subtext), and not so hot on CAPTAIN AMERICA and THE AVENGERS. And he's he new writer on (yet another) first issue of THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, so I wouldn't guess the ARCHIE gig will last. ACP could probably only afford to hire him for that ONE issue, #700.

  • DeCarlo Rules: So both ARCHIE and RIVERDALE are "on hiatus"? That means ACP has no ongoing floppy comic titles. Not a good sign. Good thing they still have the digests going (knock on wood).

The Best of JOSIE and the Pussycats TP
« on: May 08, 2017, 11:51:55 AM »
Not much in the way of details for this one... Amazon is pricing it for pre-order at $10 for "over 400 pages", so it seems likely this will follow The Complete SABRINA the Teenage Witch Vol. 1 TP in the black & white format, for a projected shipping date of September 12, 2017. That's if we're not hearing about the cancellation of the Sabrina trade collection first, within the next month or so. If it's not included in next month's solicitations for ACP product shipping from Diamond, it would seem to be even more suspect.

I'll believe it when I see it in the wild. I've seen that same cover on 3 or 4 other 'titles'.  ::)
The selected media item is not currently available.

Honestly though I think the best 'Pussycats' collection we're going to get (unless they collect the entire series) was the digital one they released a year or two ago, 'Best of Josie and the Pussycats: Greatest Hits!'.

The next digital collection they released just re-hashed titles from that collection and threw in some comics they repeatedly published in the digests.

I could be wrong, but I'm not expecting it to come out at all at this point. It's been delayed several times without any announcement already even though Archie Comics was advertising it on Tumblr and other social media websites.

Not sure why you would think it's black and white.  IF it happens, it should be color.  All of the other "Best of Archie Comics" 400 pagers were color and priced at $9.99.  NOW let's just hope it happens!

There hasn't been a new 400-500 page Archie Comics trade collection (apart from those Giant Comics conglomerations of recent digest story content) since Archie's Favorite High School Comics in July 2015. Then we get a solicitation for a June 2017-shipping dated The Complete Sabrina Vol. 1 TP collection in black & white (and also cover-priced at $9.99) ... so it seems like that's the format they're going with now for what was formerly the same-sized The Best of Archie Comics or Archie's Favorite Comics.

Neither of these books has the word "ARCHIE" prominently displayed in large letters on the cover, so I'm not sure what you think would be the distinction between them in terms of why one would merit a color collection, while the other was a black & white collection. I'm assuming it's because she's NOT Archie, that Sabrina gets the black & white treatment... but then neither is Josie.




While Sabrina's B&W trade paperback collection may not be good news to some people, I no longer believe that it will be cancelled by the people at ACP because of low pre-orders, and here's why:

True enough, that I'm not expecting to see any stories collected in this trade paperback that we haven't already seen in previously-released digital exclusive collections, or reprinted in Betty and Veronica Double Digest sections within the last couple of years. I'd just be happy to have all (or most) of those stories in one place, and in print format. If I had my druthers, I'd much have preferred a "The Complete JOSIE, Vol. 1" to a "Best of J&tP", though.

I'm not sure how something can be delayed before it's even officially been solicited. Only after it get solicited does it have to commit to an expected shipping date. Before it gets solicited it's merely something that they're thinking about. Will it be cancelled? Maybe. But now I'm not so sure that Sabrina TP is going to get cancelled, either.

That would be my dream come true. Also I looked back on the 'Best of' collection I just posted about and it only had 300 pages of content, so if this book comes out, there's 300 more pages. (And who am I kidding, I'm going to buy it anyways.)

Archie Comics advertised it on Tumblr saying it would come out 2/8 and then they never posted about it again. I guess that doesn't count as official soliciting though, but it made me feel silly/like a liar after I reblogged it on my blog lol  ::)

You may be right but Sabrina is "the complete" and Josie is "best of".   That's why I thought the Josie one would be color.  I hope it's not B&W.  I wouldn't buy any collection in B&W.  Takes 75 percent of the fun out of what Archie Comics is.

There's some hope yet (provided the book actually gets published, which is always a cause of doubt with ACP), as the Penguin Books Australian website (https://penguin.com.au/books/the-best-of-josie-and-the-pussycats-9781682559307) claims that the book is a "full-coloor collection of Josie and the Pussycats’s all-time favorite stories, hand-picked by Archie creators, editors and historians from thousands of pages of material." Notwithstanding the fact that the bit at the end about being "hand-picked by Archie creators, editors and historians from thousands of pages of material" sounds more than a little over-inflated (as opposed to the usual assemblage of "stories we had ready-to-hand because we'd already reprinted them all in recent years in other places"...), I guess we can still hope for "full-coloor" (must be some kind of Aussie thing).

The best advice I can give to anyone who really wants to see this book published is to PRE-ORDER IT -- either through Amazon, another online retailer of your choice, or through your LCS retailer when (and if) the book is actually officially solicited through Diamond Comic Distributors. Clearly with all the solicitations and cancellations we have seen with ACP, the powers-that-be there are being guided as to whether the book will actually go to the printer by pre-order numbers. If those numbers are too low, then it's not going to happen.

I would say there's more than some hope yet.  I guarantee it will be color, if, as you say, it gets published.  I think it will be published.  JATP were a big enough part of RIVERDALE that I think ACP will want to make more of their content available.
