Tuxedo Mark: My review of "Take This Job and Love It!" from Cheryl Blossom (Get a Job) #3: https://riverdalereviewed.wordpress.com/2020/09/13/comics-take-this-job-and-love-it/

Tuxedo Mark: Yeah, its more than $1. Family Dollar is another chain which was recently bought by Dollar Tree.

ASS-P: Is Dollar General the dollar chain that sells stuff more expensive than a dollar, then, of the big dollar store name brands? I sort of thought it was Family Dollar.

Tuxedo Mark: Probably that.

ASS-P: Once and for all, are traditional comic-book sized Archies - not digests ' seen by anyone here at any non-comics shop place? Anywhere

Tuxedo Mark: So you're saying Betty and Veronica Best Friends is the pre-revamp Betty and Veronica Spectacular of the digests? :D

DeCarlo Rules: Digests seem to be being released at an accelerated schedule to make up for the missing months earlier in the year. Despite letting my subscriptions lapse I haven't missed any. Betty and Veronica Best Friends now looks almost identical to the original B

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.
