    November 13, 2017, 03:44:17 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: I thought the ad money was only a piece of the webcomics big picture, with the other pieces being commission work and print collections of past webcomics, and word-of-mouth that leads to paying assignments from established publishers. It seems like Gisele just has too much talent to stay out of the game for long, and if nothing else, minus the expenses of hosting and time spent creating webcomics, she ought to be able to make a living just doing covers (which pay better than interior pages), if nothing else.

  • irishmoxie: Apparently the ad money for webcomics couldn't pay her living expenses anymore.

    November 07, 2017, 12:26:57 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: I hope they continue reprinting those Jughead stories from the early 2nd series issues (late 1980s) in World of Archie digest. Maybe not, because that was a special Time Police section, but I can always hope. Loverboy Jughead, Skatepunk Jughead, Snax Headjug. The weirder the better.
    November 06, 2017, 09:29:09 AM
  • Jabroniville: The next issue was a pretty great one- Jughead swears off girls by writing songs about how awful women are, which makes the girls at the shows fall in LOVE with him. Eventually, Betty & Ronnie refuse to play another sexist number, and he's finally consoled by ETHEL of all people (who really got the short end of the stick with the Debbie/Joani arc).
    November 06, 2017, 03:58:39 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: The way that I figure it is that January was a Time Marshall, and Jughead was a mere Deputy, so he probably didn't have the clearance level or Need To Know status for her to tell his about the multiverse. Although he could presumably have figured it out on his own, based on some of the Time Police missions he was involved in.

Have you read the original Casper comics from the 1940s-1990s?  There are plenty of those available.

I'm loving the Casper series. I wish they had more available.

It was all right. I primarily got it for the Hot Stuff story, where he almost (but not quite) meets Wendy the Good Little Witch.

Much more fascinating to me this week was reading the whole story behind the story of the company that published Casper's comic books for more than 30 years, Harvey Comics, in THE HARVEY COMICS COMPANION. From its start in 1941 to 1958, when it acquired the rights to the Casper character from its original owners Famous Studios/Paramount (for essentially nothing, and the reasons why are complicated but interesting), along with the rights to other former Paramount-owned characters like Little Audrey, Baby Huey, Buzzy the Crow, and Herman & Katnip, Harvey Comics went from being a general publisher of many types and genres of comic books, to a publisher which invested its entire future in those characters and others of a similar type. In the short run, it turned out to be an immensely profitable decision, but in the long run, it's the very reason why Harvey Comics no longer exists today. 25 years later, family strife and legal complications ultimately shut the company down, but it's still easy to see that they were fighting a losing battle because they invested everything in this one limited genre of comic book publishing. They put ALL their intellectual property eggs in ONE basket.

Ultimately the company, then calling itself Harvey Classics, was sold to Classic Media (then owned by Hallmark), which in turn was acquired by Dreamworks SKG, and rebranded itself Dreamworks Classics, until Dreamworks SKG was acquired by NBC Universal (which is now owned by Comcast).

It's easy to see some pretty interesting parallels between Harvey Comics and Archie Comics, on many levels -- both in terms of the product they are marketing and to whom, the family ownership situation, and various mismanagement difficulties. Ultimately, I think ACP will wind up with a similar fate. They're unlikely to sell out to another comic book company, but more likely to sell out to a media conglomerate interested in exploiting the nostalgia potential of their intellectual properties for merchandising profits and newer media re-imaginings.

STAR TREK: DISCOVERY - SPECIAL COLLECTORS' EDITION (HC) Magazine - I've not seen the streaming series yet. Looks interesting.

BETTY AND VERONICA DOUBLE DIGEST #258 - Still has the highest page count of classic Dan DeCarlo stories. Nice to see a new Jeff Shultz B&V story (and the return of Noelle Claus). Cramming more special sections into this digest is kind of a trade-off, because now they're as short as 11 pages. In this issue we get Li'l Jinx (eh...), Josie, Sabrina plus 2 classic Doyle/DeCarlo Betty & Me stories, in addition to the more usual recent stuff.

MY FRIEND DAHMER by Derf (OGN) - It's now been made into a indy film adaptation, so they did a new printing with a movie photo cover. Been meaning to read this for ages. Outstanding.

THE MONSTER OF FRANKENSTEIN - This reprints both the color comic book series (1970s Marvel), plus the black & white comics from MONSTERS UNLEASHED magazine.
