Tuxedo Mark: Has it been cancelled?

Mar 01 2021 11:04am
DeCarlo Rules: It seems like my prediction of the ARCHIE series launched in 2015 came true... it lasted 5 years (or 47 issues, which would have been 4 years if it were published monthly). Oh well -- that was four issues more than Manga SABRINA...

DeCarlo Rules: Can't remember the last Archie floppy comic I bought that wasn't a #1 issue...

DeCarlo Rules: Not retired, but it seems like floppy one-shots will be more frequent compared to series.

Tuxedo Mark: Vol 2 of the The Riverdale Diaries graphic novel series is now available for preorder. It stars Veronica and will come out on November 16. Oddly, Vol. 2 is available on Kindle, whereas Vol. 1 seems to be a physical-only release.

DeCarlo Rules: Is it just me, or does it seem kind of weird that ACP is still crediting Victor Gorelick as Co-President/Editor on their credit pages? I can see where they'd still want to honor his memory, but...

Hmm. Not quite what I expected. They changed the basic body colors, squared off his head a little, and gave his eyes kind of a more sinister look. I never did see Space Jam; no real interest in any sports-related stuff, plus I tend not to like those live-action/animated mashups.

Duck Dodgers the series was good, for a newer cartoon. Wish they'd made more episodes of that, and The Looney Tunes Show.

I bought (4) Josie and the Pussycats Frame-Tray Puzzles by Whitman, c. 1971 and The U.S. of Archie Vinyl Record by Peter Pan Records, c. 1975 at a local antique store today.

Wow, that's a find!  Usually all you find in those stores is junk. What I mean is, people are sharper these days in terms of recognizing that old stuff (particularly character merchandise) has collectible value due to an awareness of eBay, etc.

Especially something like puzzles, because finding those completely intact with the original box and all the pieces still there is hard.

I bought a new portable dvd player.

I bought Comic Book Tattoo. It's a huge book.

Very true! I love the hunt, but its becoming harder and harder to find items for my collection in antique stores. I do however seem to come across A LOT of Archie-themed Welch's jelly glasses and McDonald's Happy Meal toys.

Those Welch's glasses are fairly common. It seems like they made several series of those over a few years, during the height of the Filmation cartoons' popularity. They were fairly durable, and people did actually tend to save them and keep them in decent condition.

I was not aware of any Archie McDonald's Happy Meal toys, however. As far I know, the McD Happy Meal toys didn't really become a going 'thing' until the early-to-mid '80s, which would have been beyond the peak awareness period (late 60s to late 70s) for the Archie characters. You may or may not know anything about this, but as far as I can tell there's never been any sort of guide book for Archie collectibles. If you have any photos of those Happy Meal toys, I'd love to see them.

Yes, I have a complete set of Archie-themed jelly glasses from Welch's (12), c. 1971-1973. I haven't focused on finding ones with all the different bottoms, but I recently picked up an extra set (6) in its original packaging. If you haven't seen it, a complete list of jelly glasses can be found online at http://www.jellyjammers.org/welchsjellylist.pdf.

I have a complete set of kid's meal toys from McDonald's (6), c. 1987-1988 and Burger King (4), c. 1991. I recently picked up a few from Ruby's Diner (3), c. 1997, but I'm not sure if it's a complete set or not.

I've seen a few Archie collectibles listed in collector's guides focused on Saturday Morning Cartoons, but generally they only include one or two pages on Archie. I might have to make one!
