  • CAPalace: Sega posted on their Sonic Twitter. They pulled the Sonic license from Archie Comics and are going to do their own Sonic comic (or something) [link] Wow :(

  • DeCarlo Rules: Having the comic solicited by DC is ultimately to ACP's benefit, since it's likely to result in higher preorders from comic shop retailers than if it were the other way around.

  • rusty: They only show the Amanda Conner cover.  Here are the DC solicits.   [link]

  • BettyReggie: I can't find them. Can you post pictures of both Comics, because Adam Hughes is doing a cover too.
    July 19, 2017, 08:26:11 AM
  • rusty: Harley and Ivy Meet Betty and Veronica #1 is in the DC Solicitations instead of the Archie Solicitations.
    July 18, 2017, 09:52:16 PM
  • BettyReggie: i wrote to Mike Pellerito on twitter How come no B & v #4 & Harley & Ivy Meet Betty & Veronica #1 in The October 2017 Solicitations?

  • DeCarlo Rules: I know WHY they're doing those floppy comics the way they are. It's largely wasted effort though, because the Archie characters just don't have a history for most of those backbone consumers that make up the comic shop audience. They're largely raised on superhero comics and nothing but. What I'm suggesting is that they're concentrating their efforts in the wrong place, because they're never going to convert a significant enough share of the direct market into ACP readers.

  • Vegan Jughead: Yes, DCR, I've read a lot of your thoughts about Archie's challenges with the comic shops and I agree with you.  My friend having just owned and sold a comic shop, the entire comic shop format is in danger.  His business was tough.  I think that's why, as much as you're not a fan, you see things like RIVERDALE.  These companies have to use their characters every way they get a chance.  Selling books isn't enough to sustain them anymore.
    July 17, 2017, 09:09:41 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: If there's anything comic book retailers and collectors don't like, it's (A) non-standard size comics that don't fit their normal racking/bins, bagging, boarding, boxing and filing system; and (B) reprints, unless they're of consecutive issues of the same title and/or consecutive chapters of a continued story. Also non-standard genres, like anything cartoony or comical. I think that pretty much covers the uphill slope ACP has going against it with comic shops.
    July 17, 2017, 03:37:47 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: It's not meant for the comic shop market. I didn't get the point of LIFE WITH ARCHIE in magazine format, since the content was clearly aimed at the audience for floppy comics. I could see if they had offered both formats to try to hedge their bets, but ACP's failure to offer that series in floppy format is baffling. And digests and magazines don't necessarily have the same audience either. I prefer the magazine-size reprints.
    July 17, 2017, 02:57:59 AM
  • Vegan Jughead: From what I've seen though, almost everything in those Super Specials has recently been published in digests.  I don't get the point.
    July 16, 2017, 08:06:05 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: @VJ - Still better than any 2 and half floppy comics they've been publishing (and more pages of story, too) by my reckoning. Looks like you and I will just be spending our respective $10 in different ways. Maybe I'd feel differently if the new stories ACP is publishing were equal in entertainment value to me to the reprints.
    July 16, 2017, 05:00:59 PM
  • Vegan Jughead: I really don't care if it gets published.  It's one of the biggest ripoffs they sell.  10 bucks for blown up art on cheap paper.
    July 16, 2017, 06:56:30 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Super Special #6 came out in Nov. 2014, but Super Special #7 wasn't published until 2 years later. I hope #8 gets published before Nov. 2019.
    July 16, 2017, 03:07:18 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: The latest solicitation for ARCHIE COMICS SUPER SPECIAL MAGAZINE #8 (originally scheduled to ship July 26th) has been CANCELLED.  >:(  The previous 3 issues of the Super Special Magazine all had their original solicitations cancelled as well, but were eventually published after multiple solicits.
    July 16, 2017, 02:56:56 AM
  • Tuxedo Mark: My mom just gave away an old, hand-crank meat grinder that had been in our family for at leats 41 years, because she never uses it. >:( But she didn't ask me if I wanted to use it someday to make my own sausages (which I had been counting on).
    July 15, 2017, 10:10:46 AM
  • The Downloader: Back after a long vacation.  I was looking through some recent articles about AC's plans for the future, and I am upset that they are replacing the Jughead and Archie title with Archie and me DIGEST.  I guess they are now expecting us to pay 6 dollars and 99 cents for 128 pages, versus 160 pages for 4 dollars and 99 cents.
    July 15, 2017, 06:26:15 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Well, maybe it's the artist's fault then. Nobody in that story seemed like they were having fun. Or maybe it only seems funny if you were in a band and were in some kind of similar situation, but looking back on it now, it seems dopey.
    July 13, 2017, 11:00:24 AM
  • Vegan Jughead: I know DCR.  I didn't think you insulted him personally.  Sorry if my response is misleading.  I personally have found a lot of the New Riverdale stuff funny.  It's different humor for sure, but I find myself laughing.  Maybe I'm just weird.
    July 13, 2017, 10:00:46 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Tom DeFalco's another example. He's written some of the very best ACP comics of the last 10 years. Unfortunately Reggie and Me wasn't one of them. Why are they so afraid of being funny in New Riverdale?

Dollar tree was a fail, no good food but they had some good nail polish. Brand name that is usually more pricy at drug stores

I've been buying 2000AD comics hardcover collections and softcover graphic novels like crazy, just really getting back into it bigtime.
All stuff I've recently gotten in the last couple weeks or am waiting on an order for:

THE ART OF JUDGE DREDD HC
JUDGE DREDD THE COMPLETE CARLOS EZQUERRA HC VOL 01
JUDGE DREDD THE COMPLETE CARLOS EZQUERRA HC VOL 02
JUDGE DREDD THE CURSED EARTH UNCENSORED HC
JUDGE DREDD YEAR ONE TP
JUDGE DREDD DEATH LIVES TP
JUDGE DREDD DARK JUSTICE HC
RO BUSTERS THE COMPLETE NUTS & BOLTS HC VOL 01
RO BUSTERS THE COMPLETE NUTS & BOLTS HC VOL 02 
A.B.C. WARRIORS THE MEK-FILES 03 HC
A.B.C. WARRIORS RETURN TO EARTH HC
BAD COMPANY: GOODBYE, KROOL WORLD TP (VOL. 1)
BAD COMPANY: KANO TP (VOL. 2)
BAD COMPANY: FIRST CASUALTIES TP (VOL. 3)

Grud knows when I'm going to find the time to read all these. It was a drokking mess just trying to sort out what's available in print and the correct reading order for these books. It's a long-term project I guess. I started off with a few of the American hardcover editions of Judge Dredd published by IDW (not listed above, as that was months ago), and a couple of more recent things from the last few years like the 2000AD FCBD giveaways and other one-shot magazine specials, and then just decided to really try to sort it all out (40 years worth of stories from this British sci-fi comic. which is published weekly, so there have been over 2000 issues, or "progs", plus Annuals, Yearbooks, and Specials, & over 300 issues of the JUDGE DREDD MEGAZINE).

So far I've completed the runs of stories of Rogue Trooper, BAD Company, Ro-Busters, and am closing in on completing the A.B.C. Warriors collected stories (just missing 2 volumes in TP now). Then I need to work on finishing a few more of the shorter runs of collected editions for Judge Anderson PSI-Division (6 more TPs), Strontium Dog (5 more TPs), Nemesis the Warlock (1 deluxe hardcover), and Judge Death (2 more TPs, I think). There's just a massive amount of Judge Dredd (over 80 collected volumes in the hardcover Judge Dredd Mega Collection) so I imagine that I'll just be hitting the highlights of the major storylines, trying to get the larger deluxe hardcover editions whenever possible, or artist-centric collections. I do have all the graphic novel collections of Judge Dredd crossover stories co-published with DC Comics, Dark Horse, and IDW.

Of course even just the limited list of characters whose stories I'm trying to collect represents only about 20% (or less) of all the stories published in the 40-year history of 2000AD magazine. I'd been reading these characters since the early 1980s, but somewhere around the early 1990s the reprint albums got harder to find in American comic shops and the storylines became more confusing to me, and I just drifted away from it for a few decades. Fortunately things are easier now, as you can order even the out-of-print collections (usually at reasonable prices) and have them shipped from UK booksellers on Amazon. The money I got back from my tax return is going to England!
