  • DeCarlo Rules: What I don't understand is why they're trying to discourage subscriptions to B&V FRIENDS Jumbo digest. It's been published at 10 times per year frequency for the last 3 years -- just like the other B&V jumbo digest. So if they're both published just as often, why do they offer a choice of 10 issue or 20 issue subscriptions for BETTY & VERONICA, but only a 6 issue subscription for B&V FRIENDS? You can get a 12-issue subscription to B&V FRIENDS on the website, but if I remember correctly, the printed ad for subs only offers the 6-issue sub option. Why isn't it the same option as the other digests (10 issues or 20 issues), if they're all published 10 times a year? And they ARE.

  • Tuxedo Mark: Just looked at Archie Comics' subsciption page. Archie Meets Batman '66 is a six-issue miniseries. Archie 1941 is a five-issue miniseries. There's a six-issue subscription for Betty and Veronica: Friends Forever and Vixens (surprisingly; might get transferred to the new B&V title) and a twelve-issue subscription for Riverdale. Riverdale Digest isn't listed, so it looks like it's been cancelled.

  • CAPalace: I'm a woman btw and I'm just so sick of the blatant anti-men thing going on in comics these days. It's not doing women any favors either. :/
    July 09, 2018, 09:05:40 PM
  • CAPalace: They're banking on Archie 700 to sell a lot because "lol a new number wow lol" and it will for the first issue but it'll just go back to the average/poor numbers it had before. And YOU KNOW with that writer on B+V it's going to turn into an anti-men, oooh girl power lol violence against men and demeaning men is feminism and fun lol lol Good luck. I'll stick to Ebay to find the DeCarlo stuff thanks.

  • Tuxedo Mark: I'm looking forward to the new B&V series. Personally, I think that previous B&V series by what's-his-name was way worse than anything that Rotante wrote on Vixens.
    July 09, 2018, 08:43:47 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: So, so predictable... they love to exploit NUMBERS, whether it's a single digit (1 or 0) or a triple-digit ending in 00. Good lord, I can't believe they're actually giving Jamie Rotante ANOTHER B&V series to write ruin! She is the worst I've read -- although it's a tough call, Marguerite Bennett was pretty horrible as well. Nick Spencer can actually be quite good as a writer... or pretty bad, depending on the character and the direction. He was great on ANT-MAN and SUPERIOR FOES OF SPIDER-MAN (both books that had a strong humorous subtext), and not so hot on CAPTAIN AMERICA and THE AVENGERS. And he's he new writer on (yet another) first issue of THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, so I wouldn't guess the ARCHIE gig will last. ACP could probably only afford to hire him for that ONE issue, #700.

  • Vegan Jughead: ARCHIE isn't on hiatus officially. The last official word from Archie Comics is that there is "big news about the flagship ARCHIE title" coming up after the "1941" miniseries. We'll see. RIVERDALE is supposed to come back early '19 after the TV show returns.

    July 05, 2018, 03:09:04 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: I guess there's still THE HUNGER and VAMPIRONICA, but they're still so new that it's hard to think of them as "ongoing".
    July 05, 2018, 12:14:16 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: So both ARCHIE and RIVERDALE are "on hiatus"? That means ACP has no ongoing floppy comic titles. Not a good sign. Good thing they still have the digests going (knock on wood).

What is to become of me and my collection?
« on: September 26, 2017, 08:34:37 PM »

Hi all!  Long time no see!  So, maybe you have (or haven't noticed) my absence for over half a year or so now.  There is a reason for this.  I have been dealing with problems in my family life, and problems with my future.  Here is the 411:


Myself:  I am doing rather well, actually.  I have made many advances in my education, and social life.  I have cut ties to people that are extreme in every sense of the word, and (even though I have been gaining more weight), I have been eating better!  Life has never been better!


My education:  I AM ALMOST DONE!  I am amazed at how far I have come in my life.  I am hoping to attend University in Japan in the coming years.


My employment:  As of right now, I am technically not employed.  I have held two jobs in the past that did not turn out so well.  As of right now, I sort of work for PD Staffing, and they send me wherever they need within a 50 mile radius of my home, but other than that, I don't have a job.  However, next summer I am going home to Alaska to do some mining work for $4600 for 2 weeks on, 2 weeks off.


My collection:  This is probably what you all came here to see.  My collection.  It hasn't really grown, or shrank.  I got a neighborhood kid interested in Archie, but that's about as far as its gone.  My problem is, that I plan on living in a different country every 2 years (or less), and cannot have much stuff.  Luckily for me, I am a datahoarder, so I have a digital copy of everything I physically own (yes, including most of my archies).  At a point, I hope to scan what I don't already have a digital copy of, and make a copy of it myself!  I am currently at 41TB of stuff, and climbing by 3TB a month!


Moving:  As of this time, I don't have any concrete plans of moving.  However, in 2019, I plan to move to Japan.  I have not decided where to live there, but I am sure I will be able to choose soon.


Travel:  GOOD NEWS!  I should be able to go on a service mission through ANY church to ANY of the places that were battered by Hurricane Irma, to help rebuild for the people that live there.  I hope to leave in December, but this can change.


That's about it.  Questions?  Thoughts on my life thus far?

Sounds like you've been pretty busy. I don't know how you plan to just up and move to Japan without a job or savings to start with, but I guess you must have some idea in mind. Good luck!

I guess if you can digitize your entire collection onto a couple of huge hard drives then "You CAN take it with you."  ;)

Probably leave them with my family as I travel the world.

Package them carefully, to keep them dry, & free of mildew, mold & insects.
