  • Vegan Jughead: DCR and Downloader, remember they also got that investment capital last year.  I think it was for a few hundred thousand dollars.  I don't know how long that will last, but I'm sure they're using that.

  • DeCarlo Rules: @The Downloader - What cash flow they have is coming not from the floppy titles, but from the digests and trade collections. They're just spewing out different one-shots and short-run series to see if they can find something that will last.

  • DeCarlo Rules: Yeah, I got it. Looks pretty good for the Sabrina and Josie story selections, adding up to about 200 pages. I couldn't care less about the Little Archie stories, Most of the stories here don't seem like they've been reprinted ad infinitum, which is good. Nice to see those in the standard comic-sized trade paperback.

I just found the coolest thing...
« on: December 18, 2016, 02:47:02 PM »
I was at half price books with my dad today, and as usual, I went to the comics while he went to the video games.
While I was there I found "Archie; His First 50 Years", which is a big book from 25 years ago with comics and commentary (Kinda like "The Art of Betty and Veronica"). This was a cool enough find on its own, its in good condition, and it was only 8 dollars. When I found my dad, he opened it up and said "cool, its even autographed like your other books".
I laughed (because I though he was joking). but then I saw writing, and got really sad because written in the corner was "Happy 50th Birthday Dad! Love Jill"
I considered putting it back, because I didn't want some maybe dead guy's birthday present, but my dad convinced me to get it anyways.
I was still having my doubts, but then my dad open up the book all the way and I saw "Charles Phillips 8/25/92"
who was the author of the book.
It sucks that it has the "Happy 50th Birthday Dad!" thing, but the autograph is super cool, especially since its from 24 years ago.

I wish you'd asked about it first, but oh well... it's only 8 dollars, I guess. I had bought the book last year and found it very disappointing. At the time it was first published I guess there wasn't much out there that was comparable, but now much better books have been published, both in terms of reprint collections, and text history. In terms of collections, any of the BEST OF ARCHIE COMICS series of trade paperbacks, or the decade-by-decade reprint collections Best of the Forties, Best of the Fifties, Best of the Sixties, Best of the Seventies, Best of the Eighties, and Best of the Nineties -- there are two trade paperbacks for each decade (published by ACP), or a combined reprint of both volumes of each trade paperback in hardcover from IDW for the '40s, '50s, '60s, and '70s (IDW didn't reprint the Best of the Eighties or Nineties in hardcover).

In terms of a history of Archie Comics, this is the book to get:

yeah, I have most of the other collections, and this isn't the best book for the history of Archie Comics, but I have others, and I mostly got it just to add to my collection. It was really cheap so I couldn't resist.
