Tuxedo Mark: And did they just tease a Pussycats spinoff series with that custom logo to close out the episode?

Tuxedo Mark: I just watched "The Return of the Pussycats", and it's definitely the best episode of Riverdale in quite a while. They're playing with the character relationships a bit. Valerie is with Alan M, and Melody is with Nancy.

DeCarlo Rules: I'll never figure out what the thinking is behind the occasional spurts of weird randomness in the jumbo digests -- but a new Wilkin Boy story is a new  Wilkin Boy story. As weirdly random as an appearance by Bob Phantom or Sam Hill.

This book collection (from the solicited-then-cancelled 6-issue miniseries of 2013) was solicited back in 2014, then cancelled. Amazon is now listing it for preorders again, with a projected publication date of September 5, 2017.

That's awfully far in advance, and Diamond Comics has not listed this as an upcoming release as of yet, so I don't know if I should trust this (for that matter, I don't know if I should trust it even IF/when Diamond does start taking orders for it). Don't get me wrong, I'd LOVE to have this book to complete my Mighty Comics/Red Circle collection, but 10 months is a looooooooooong way away for a company that really doesn't plan that far ahead. But maybe this is an example of them using some of that investment capital money to use up some of that in-house material that has already been bought and paid for. Presumably they couldn't do that before, because anything that they solicited that would result in a big printer's bill needed to be a product that would return the money laid out for that bill almost immediately, or it wasn't a justifiable use of their limited cash resources. Hopefully we will then get to see a couple of other previously solicited (but then cancelled) things coming down the road after this, like TPBs for the second story arc ("Fox Hunt") of THE FOX, and Tom DeFalco's SAM HILL (released previously as a Digital Exclusive collection), and a TPB collection of Dan Parent's digital-only miniseries LIFE WITH KEVIN.

I wouldn't mind seeing the previously solicited books finally come out.  The downside is that timely interest or momentum of titles like the Crusaders example is lost.
