  • DeCarlo Rules: That's pretty much the whole point of having an internet -- it connects you to entertainment, information, and people who would otherwise be too far away from you physically, or would involve much greater effort on your part to connect with. And although there are some advantages for comic book collectors inherent in the direct-market dedicated comic book shop system, the major BIG (obvious) DISadvantage is that only a few thousand of those shops exist, compared to the huge number of retailers who used to carry comic books along with their other products back in the days of the "newsstand distribution system".

  • Tuxedo Mark: The only "local" comic shop within "reasonable" distance of my house is 18 miles away, in the next county. Yeah, no, I'll continue getting my comics digitally.
    May 06, 2018, 07:39:36 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: @Archiecomicxfan215 - FCBD comic books may be free to you, but the retailer has to PAY for those comic books he gives away for free. The publishers of the FCBD comics make no profit off them, and they're distributed to retailers by Diamond Comics for free, but they have to charge comic shop owners money for them, because paper and printing costs money. Your local comic shop owner loses a small amount of money with every FCBD comic book he gives away. Of course the whole idea behind FCBD is that sampling those free comic books will create interest in customers actually BUYing the retail versions of those FCBD comic books later on.

Oh, and I guess if you care about that RIVERDALE thing, you could pick up the FCBD issue where Pop Tate eavesdrops on all the conversations of his teenage customers (makes him sound a little creepy, if you ask me...)

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.
