  • Vegan Jughead: Yes Mark.  192 pages.  Jumbos are 256, which was reduced from 288, which was reduced from 320.  The price continues to rise of course.  If you subscribe all issues are the same price.  I know you've had issues with subscriptions, though.

  • DeCarlo Rules: On the plus side, of those 5 issues of B&V Friends in 2017, 2 of them are Jumbo issues and the other three are Annuals.

  • DeCarlo Rules: Definitely. I was a little worried when there was no B&V Friends solicitation for November... that means only 5 issues came out this year, instead of 6 -- but since you got a renewal notice, and there's an issue solicited for December, it looks like it will continue!  :)

  • DeCarlo Rules: I just got email confirmation from the ACP subscription department... not only is JUGHEAD AND ARCHIE digest ending, but ARCHIE'S FUNHOUSE digest is ending as well. Both subscriptions are automatically switched to the new ARCHIE AND ME digest, unless a subscriber requests a different digest title. No word on B&V FRIENDS digest so far; here's hoping "no news is good news" in this case.

Your Pal Archie #2
« on: September 01, 2017, 05:45:59 PM »
I just got my subscription copy of Your Pal Archie #2 in the mail.


It's great!  The first issue was just getting us warmed up.  If you haven't read YPA, do it! 


Archie wins the lottery in this one and of course it's a mess. 


The back up story (which is to be continued next issue) is about Reggie getting what looks like a concussion playing football and it changes his behavior some would say for the better.


Ty Templeton's dialogue is funny and Dan's art, as always, is top notch. 


I'm hoping this thing gets extended beyond 5 issues or at least they use a similar idea on different characters.

In the world of Archie Comics, concussions are always cause for hilarity ensuing.  ;D

I liked #1, if only for the reason of getting some new classic Archie stories again, and longer ones. I think I liked the Jughead learning to drive story better than the first part of Archie wins the lottery, but whether it's because I've gotten past the redesigned looks now or whatever, I have to say I liked #2 overall a lot better, especially the conclusion of the 2-parter. Reggie getting amnesia from a bonk on the head sounds like a real throwback to the Doyle-Lucey kind of stories from the late-50s/early-60s, which is a good thing.

Still debating whether to drop $3.99 on this.

I subscribed so it's only like 2.50 a copy but I'd pay 3.99 otherwise.   But then, I love Dan Parent.  I wasn't familiar with Ty Templeton but I like his writing on this, especially the new issue.

I've stopped trusting Archie subscriptions. I subscribed to "Betty" and got one issue (the final one); my subscription was not transferred to "Betty & Veronica" (as was supposedly going to happen). I recently renewed my P.O. Box pretty much solely so I can receive the remaining issues in my AWA and CHAoS subscriptions. It's more of a hassle now than anything.

Oh that sucks Mark.  I haven't really had any problems.  A couple of missed issues in the last few years but they always replaced them quickly.

I think Reggie's faking it. He's up to a massive joke on everyone.... :)

You know him well... that's just the sort of thing Reggie would do. I hope it does turn out to be genuine amnesia, though, because it strikes me that the comical possibilities of that situation are far more interesting than if it turns out to be a mere prank.  ;D
