DeCarlo Rules: Is it just me, or does the fact that Victor Gorelick's name continues to be listed on the credits pages as Co-President seem a little weird.? I know they still want to show respect for the guy, but wouldn't "Editor-In-Chief Emeritus" be more appropriate?

Tuxedo Mark: Well, it's not like they have much else going on. Maybe the occasional OGN, but that's it.

DeCarlo Rules: BUT it is interesting that the company focus has shifted back to classic-style Archie stories again... :D

DeCarlo Rules: Why do I get the feeling that the new 5-page stories is the floppy comics will just undergo the reverse of the usual process and appear as the lead story in a digest title a month later, instead of the opposite way, which was the case when they started?

DeCarlo Rules: I just discovered that Archie DIgital no longer exists. But before it died (April 28, 2021) they somehow managed to release The Complete Sabrina the Teenage Witch Vol. 2: 1972-1973 as a digital exclusive  -- in black and white again.

Latest Hauls, what did you buy?

Last night I bought Banana Fish #2 & #6 & #7 from Barnes & Noble. Yesterday was free shipping Friday & they had free shipping. Plus if you buy 2 manga books the 3rd one is free,

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.

I bought The U.S. of Archie by Peter Pan Records, c. 1975 from my local antique mall.

I always wondered what the guys at Filmation were thinking with that one. I mean sure, for about a year and half the whole country was going crazy with "bicentennial fever" or whatever you want to call it, and the U.S. government was marketing the flag-waving patriotic celebration concept like nobpdy's business.

Still, you had to figure the hard-headed business guys in TV production knew how these things work, and that those animated shows were only profitable to the extent that you could get the maximum amount of mileage out of them as reruns. Naturally after the bicentennial was over anything tied in with it was going to seem stale and dated, so... what were they thinking? Kids were only going to put up with an "educational" Archie show about U.S. history as long as the bicentennial fever raged on. And indeed, the U.S. of Archie had nothing like the shelf-life of the Filmation Archie cartoons that had come before it (except for maybe TV Funnies, another odd mismatch of two disparate ideas, which also didn't play well in reruns).

That makes merchandise items specifically spawned by The U.S. of Archie incarnation exceptionally rare. Got (or know of) any items specifically merchandised from Archie's T.V. Funnies?

I bought a batch of comics from the 1950s that includes:


13 of the 14 Tom Corbett Space Cadet comics
all 4 Rocky Jones Space Ranger comics
11 Mystery in Space comics
35 Strange Adventures comics

I won an auction for books 3-10 of the Archie Riverdale High series by Mike Pellowski.  I already had two of the books, but needed the rest.  I still need the first two books and there was a special as well.  There doesn't seem to be a lot of information out there on the series, but I think there were only the 11 books.
