    June 14, 2018, 08:12:53 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: @irishmoxie -- It's definitely complete. All six of the 1958-59 Sy Reit/Bob White original issues, plus the feature-length "Good Guys of the Galaxy" by Tom DeFalco & Fernando Ruiz from ARCHIE #655, and three 5-page digest shorts that guest-starred Cosmo -- and the complete first issue of the Ian Flynn/Tracy Yarley COSMO (2017) thrown in for good measure. It follows the same layout/format as the previous JUGHEAD'S TIME POLICE, even though that didn't carry the "Archie Comics Presents..." trade dress. Not a bad buy for $11.

  • Cosmo: Ah man....and I was worried I was the last enthusiast for ERB's stuff. I'm currently rereading my Dell Tarzan books. Really good fun! It took a while to complete that run.

  • DeCarlo Rules: ...Marvel's earlier JOHN CARTER, WARLORD OF MARS in there, so the DE Tarzan comics need to go in a different box, and SHEENA (also a recent DE title) and DC's RIMA THE JUNGLE GIRL will help fill up that box.
    June 11, 2018, 07:40:48 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Recently. DE's unauthorized LORD OF THE JUNGLE Tarzan adaptations (and its authorized THE GREATEST ADVENTURE) won't fit into my existing box of previous Tarzan comics from Gold Key, DC, and Dark Horse, so I have to start a new box. Logically these get filed with DE's unauthorized WARLORD OF MARS comics (including DEJAH THORIS) and their authorized JOHN CARTER, WARLORD OF MARS. But I also want to squeeze Marve;
    June 11, 2018, 07:38:48 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Interesting. I tend not to group titles by publisher at all, if the characters were not created as work-for-hire (meaning the publisher is legally considered the 'author' of the character). Do they belong to that publisher's "universe" (assuming it has one)? There are some publishers like Dynamite Entertainment where the vast majority of the titles they publish are licensed, and thus were "inherited" from other publishers. Therefore it makes more sense to me to group them together in boxes with similar characters. Flash Gordon, The Phantom, and Mandrake comics (regardless of who the actual publisher was) go together in the same box because they're all classic adventure heroes licensed from Hearst Entertainment (formerly King Features Syndicate). Pulp fiction heroes like The Shadow, Doc Savage, and The Spider (regardless of the fact that the latter did not originate with the same publisher as the first two) also get grouped together. Space considerations allowing, Tarzan (and other Edgar Rice Burroughs adaptations) might share the same box with Sheena and Rima, but NOT with Ka-Zar, because he's a Marvel Universe character.

  • rusty: I do keep all Star Trek series together in their own section and all Star Wars books together.  I also keep all 2000AD titles together and manga books get their own section.  For titles that have switched publishers, I usually keep them all with the publisher that I identify them with the most.  Tarzan has been published by a variety of publishers, but I keep them with Dell/Gold Key.  Conan is starting to get a bit close with all the success Dark Horse has had, but I still identify Conan more with Marvel.
    June 11, 2018, 06:27:26 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Believe it or not, I even have a box labeled "Pseudo-manga" that contains comics published by American companies and created by American creators like Astro Boy & Racer X (Now Comics), Battle of the Planets (Gold Key & Top Cow/Image), Captain Harlock (Malibu), Godzilla (Dark Horse) and Ultraman. I just want to keep those separate from the boxes of real translated manga in floppy comic format.
    June 11, 2018, 03:34:17 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Well. the problem is when you get titles with licensed characters that aren't owned by the publisher. So if you collect Star Trek comics, you'd have different series published by Gold Key, Marvel, DC, and IDW (and I probably missed one in there). It doesn't make sense to me to put them in different boxes by publisher, but to each his own. Disney comics would be another example. There are even some instances where if I like a certain artist enough, I will put all his work regardless of publisher or characters into one box, like Paul Gulacy, Steve Rude, or Mike Allred (and file them chronologically from older to newer, rather than alphabetically). Those are examples where my interest in the creator far exceeds my relative interest in whatever characters are involved.
    June 11, 2018, 03:14:29 PM
  • rusty: That makes sense.  There are many ways that people can file books.  What I do is file by company or category and then alphabetically within each section.  My first category is Richie Rich then Archie, then other Harvey titles, then Disney, then other humor/kids books, then by company (unless it is a company where I don't have very many books from them.  Star Trek and Star Wars each get their own section as well.  I will probably revamp a bit when I do my next major sort/merge.  The biggest section by far for me is DC.
    June 11, 2018, 09:28:59 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: I don't even file my comics alphabetically. I file them according to how closely they're related to other titles, but it's all dependent on the number of issues I have of any given title, and what will fit into a single box. Fpr ACP comics I just put all the short-run series (whether an actual miniseries or just a not particularly successful title) into one box. Even though some of those short run series star Jughead, and I could as easily file those together with the main JUGHEAD title in another box. For longer running ACP titles, "girl" titles are sorted into different boxes than "boy" titles. Eventually when I have enough issues of BETTY (and BETTY AND ME and BETTY'S DIARY) they'll get their own box, and VERONICA will get her own box.
    June 10, 2018, 09:49:06 AM
  • rusty: I file Jughead under J and Reggie under R in all of their incarnations, though I do file the original Lois Lane and Jimmy Olsen books under S since that keeps them with the Superman books and also because they kept that title throughout their entire run.  If anyone wants to look up Jughead or Reggie in Overstreet, though, they will have to look under A for the early issues.
    June 10, 2018, 07:56:27 AM
  • BettyReggie: I can't wait to get that Reggie book. It's coming out the day after my 39th Birthday.
    June 10, 2018, 06:42:06 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Yeah, I never understood why publishers felt the need to point that out on the covers of a comic book, like maybe someone didn't really know who REGGIE was, and might buy it just because they noticed the words "Archie's Rival" above the big letters that spelled REGGIE? Same with "Archie's Pal" or "Superman's Pal" or "Superman's Girl Friend" -- like some potential buyer wouldn't know who Jughead, Jimmy Olsen, or Lois Lane was, but would know who Archie or Superman was? Just assume you're selling the product to idiots, I guess. Is anyone really filing REGGIE under "A" for Archie's Pal in their collections??
    June 10, 2018, 05:42:02 AM
  • rusty: In it's first incarnation, Reggie was titled ARCHIE'S RIVAL, REGGIE.  It wasn't until after the title was resurrected nearly a decade later that it became REGGIE and then REGGIE AND ME.
    June 09, 2018, 10:23:13 PM
  • Tuxedo Mark: I've never understood why those old titles had "and Me" in them, anyway. Why not just name the titles after the starring characters?

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!
