DeCarlo Rules: Are the owners dead?  Who wants this woman put in prison for a felony change over a forgotten video tepe? The whole thing's insane. I sort of like her defense though -- "I would never watch anything like that, that proves I;m innocent".

Tuxedo Mark: The store went out of business years ago.

DeCarlo Rules: Just make her pay the store owners for the price of the tape and let it go.

DeCarlo Rules: So what, was the video store just charging her for a weekly rental fee every week since 1999 when it was overdue? That's why it's a felony, because the charges added up to thousands of dollars after all that time?

Tuxedo Mark: It might be a glitch, because all of the digests are now missing, and I'd just seen Archie Showcase Digest and World of Betty and Veronica Digest (and even read the new story in the latter).

Tuxedo Mark: Every issue of the Archie digest seems to be missing from the Kindle store.

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.
