  • DeCarlo Rules: @The Downloader - What cash flow they have is coming not from the floppy titles, but from the digests and trade collections. They're just spewing out different one-shots and short-run series to see if they can find something that will last.

  • DeCarlo Rules: Yeah, I got it. Looks pretty good for the Sabrina and Josie story selections, adding up to about 200 pages. I couldn't care less about the Little Archie stories, Most of the stories here don't seem like they've been reprinted ad infinitum, which is good. Nice to see those in the standard comic-sized trade paperback.

Weird/Funny Comic Panels
« on: June 04, 2016, 03:45:52 AM »


I know they sometimes update older comics when they put them in newer digests (e.g. change dates, prices, pop culture figures), but this is ridiculous. Why would they do this?

I scanned this from B&V Double Digest #34.

I'm not sure what you mean by "Why would they do this?"  ???

B&V Double Digest #34 is from October 1992, and this story is obviously from an old issue, since Archie is doing an impression of Ed Sullivan (the clues are the crossed-arms pose and the "right here on our very own stage" quote) from his television variety show that ran all through the 1950s and 1960s (which is where The Beatles made their American TV debut), ending in 1971. Judging by what I know about Harry Lucey's art style, this looks like it would have been close to the end of the run of that long-running TV show. The same story was reprinted earlier in Archie Comics Digest #86 (Oct. 1987).

The letterer (or writer) mis-spelled the word "divine", which the proofreader or editor failed to catch, unless that's supposed to be an affectation of speech.

Look at Archie's head.

You'll have to be a little more specific. All I see in that picture is Archie trying to do an impression of Ed Sullivan. It looks badly inked, but sometimes that happens with reprints. Old comic book artwork was shot by camera and and kept on file as transparancies, and sometimes the ink wore off the printed side of the transparency, resulting in it having to be touched up by the production department prior to reprinting.

Okay. I just thought it was funny because it looks nothing like Lucey's work and isn't even proportional to the rest of his body. Nevermind then.

Hey, that's right! I didn't even notice it until you pointed it out.

This is a thread we were missing. Like the old forum's weird/random panel of the day. Thanks for creating it Tokyo.

It's supposed to look like a funny pose, and atypical of how Archie is usually drawn. The crossed arms, hunched shoulders, that's all Ed Sullivan's 'body language'. Here's a celebrity lookalike "doing" Ed Sullivan.

Actually, I find Veronica's pose to be the funniest one in that panel, as she tries to balance Betty on her head.   ;D

I think you are right Tokyo. Whoever drew the head, its not Lucey. I'd be interested in seeing the original. I suppose they didn't cite the original story?

Lucey, probably badly inked over by someone in the production department, or an attempt to copy his original over. Almost looks like it could have been done with a felt tip pen. Reproduced from a damaged transparency, no doubt.

No citation, the digest is from the 90s. I feel like I've seen this comic before in another digest I own, but may just be imagining it...



Where is this from? I'd like to read this story lol

It would not have looked out of place in the latest issue of Chilling Tales of Sabrina, in which Riverdale's resident witches, B&V, make a return appearance.
