  • DeCarlo Rules: It's crazy that ACP hasn't reprinted those 2 issues as a double-size one-shot. Or the lead story in a TP collection of vampire stories (including "Twilite" and others).
    November 04, 2018, 03:21:35 am
  • irishmoxie: That's crazy about those Betty and Veronica issues being worth so much. They're only about 6 years old. I'm pretty sure I have copies of them.
    November 04, 2018, 01:36:00 am
  • DeCarlo Rules: On a relatated note, the real FIRST Vampironica appeared in Larry Welz' underground comic Cherry Poptart #1 [link]. That can be had right now, CGCed at 9.4, at the Buy-It-Now price of $280 on ebay. Although the book had several subsequent printings, only the first printing ($2 cover price) contains the Vampironica story. Much, much scarcer than B&V #261 & 262, but then far fewer people seem to be aware of its existence. It may not be the same Vampironica as the one that appears in her own comic book from ACP, but then you can easily make the argument that neither is the Vampironica from B&V 261-262.

  • rusty: Crazy.  I obviously missed that back then.
    November 03, 2018, 10:06:11 pm
  • DeCarlo Rules: Yes, I mentioned this a while back somewhere around the time Vampironica #1 was first solicted or shipped. I even mentioned it to Dan Parent and told him if he still had copies he should get them CGC'ed.
    November 03, 2018, 04:33:03 pm
  • rusty: Apparently Betty and Veronica #261 and 262 (1987 series) are popular now due to Vampironica.  Somebody actually purchased a copy of #261 for $299 on ebay recently.

Recently though, they've been coming out on Tuesday.  Oh well, still have another 9 hours to go.

Nope, it's not the 3rd Wednesday (or Tuesday either) of the month. It's the week before the last Wednesday of the month, and August has FIVE Wednesdays. It's timed because the last Wednesday (or Tuesday) of the month is when Diamond Comics delivers the printed PREVIEWS catalog to comic shops. ALL solicitations for ALL products distributed by Diamond Comics will appear at the same time the information is released to comics news sites at www.previewsworld.com/catalog. (And if you only wanted JUST the Archie Comic Publications solicitations, and no other publishers in the PREVIEWS catalog, then it would be http://www.previewsworld.com/Catalog?pub=ARCHIE%20COMIC%20PUBLICATIONS.) You might want to bookmark that page if you're chomping at the bit for comics solicitations.

How come you never list classic Archie stuff like the digests and trade paperbacks? Those are the days I look forward to as an Archie fan.

I told you. It's not the 3rd Wednesday. It's the week before the last Wednesday, which is August 31st, so look for them on or about the 24th.

Wednesday, August 24th, 2016 - BETTY AND VERONICA: GIRLS RULE! trade paperback is released to comic shops. Solicitation description follows...
Quote
Anything boys can do, girls can do better! The gals are taking center stage and showing the boys who’s boss! Watch the girls as they challenge their male counterparts to a dance-off, show them what’s what on the sports field and even fight crime! It’s not just a battle of the sexes, but also a fun walk through history, highlighting important female figures throughout time standing up for what’s right! This collection spotlights the girls of Riverdale, including Betty, Veronica, Nancy, Cheryl, Ethel, Ginger, Trula Twyst and Brigitte, featuring a special introduction by comics legend Gail Simone! In this collection, the girls really do rule!

$10.99/$11.99CAN
5 1/4 x 8”
224 pp, Full Color

I love B&V "theme" collection trade paperbacks. If they put out one every single month, I would buy it.

1) This is the first classic Archie trade paperback (which is in the ARCHIE & FRIENDS ALL-STARS format of 5.25" x 8") to be released by ACP in over a year. (I discount 1000 Page Comics Digests and Giant Comics Digests as true trade paperbacks, even though that's what ACP calls them. They are simply bargain-priced digest omnibuses, that reprint the same stories as appeared in the regular digests in the previous 2 or 3 months. They're a great money-saving value for those who don't follow the digest titles on a regular basis, but for regular digest consumers, they're redundant.)

2) The last previous thematic collection of classic Archie stories in trade paperback was ARCHIE CAMPFIRE STORIES, released in July 2015, so it's been a long drought for classic Archie TPBs since then. Several solicitations for classic Archie trade paperbacks have appeared since then, but none of them have actually made it to print.

3) The last previous BETTY & VERONICA trade paperback collection was SHOPPING SPREE, released in December 2014.

4) This particular B&V collection, GIRLS RULE, has an especially twisty history on its road to print publication. If you're a reader of digital, you may remember this Digital Exclusive collection which was first released way back in December 2012:

(original release cover, under the Archie Digital iVerse app.)

(re-release cover as PEP DIGITAL #29, under the Archie Digital Madefire app.)

It's interesting to compare the description of that DE release with the new trade paperback version:
Quote
PEP Digital #29: B & V Friends Girls Rule!
111 pages!
Anything boys can do, girls can do better! The gals are taking center stage and showing the boys who's boss! Watch the girls as they challenge their male counterparts to a dance-off, show them what's what on the sports field and even fight crime! It's not just a battle of the sexes, but also a fun walk through history, highlighting important female figures throughout time, standing up for what's right! This 100+ page digital exclusive features the lovely ladies of Riverdale, including Betty, Veronica, Nancy, Cheryl, Ethel, Ginger, Trula Twyst and Brigitte! In this collection, the girls really do rule!
Hmm... very similar to the print release as solicited above, except for using B&V FRIENDS instead of BETTY & VERONICA in the title. However, it can't be exactly the same collection, because the digital exclusive release was only 111 pages, while the new TPB release is 224 pages, over twice the page count. What stories might be the same in both collections is anyone's guess.

This particular trade paperback collection has been solicited at least twice before, but it looks like it will finally arrive in stores on August 24th.
