  • DeCarlo Rules: It seems like they put extras on a disc because people expect them, or it helps drive sales, but more often than not, it seems like very little thought goes into the content. Of course there are some examples where the extras are exceptional, but usually that's not the case.

  • irishmoxie: I love digital movies and streaming. I usually get the Blu-ray Disc because I like to watch the extras the first time and then end up adding the digital code online or rip it and put it on the hard drive. Just much more convenient to stream it then search for the disc when I want to watch it.

  • DeCarlo Rules: On the other hand, maybe I should just bypass the Blu-Ray format altogether, buy a huge terabyte HD, and download everything. There's something to be said for that, in that you can get everything quicker and stacks of Blu-Ray cases aren't taking up space in your house, I guess.

  • DeCarlo Rules: This coming from a guy who still hasn't capitulated to the inevitable domination of Blu-Ray. It's getting to the point where I might have to relent, since I've seen some anime sets being released for the first time on Blu-Ray (no combo pak) with NO release of a DVD version.

  • DeCarlo Rules: I'll never get used to people not being able to wait a few days when they order stuff online. I guess maybe I could understand it IF it were something that there was no other way to see, but I assume you've already seen the episodes.  People who are that impatient usually don't even buy disc sets, they just buy it digitally or stream it.

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.
