We had a similat, but regional, chain that was only in New York and Connecticut I think, called Caldor's, they covered the same portion of the market. We had expensive. sorta hi.

  • ASS-P: ...Thank you# Yeah, 50-something, says Wiki. The whole operatic death scene of Sears had stopped getting media attention recently and likewise I'd heard of the big I'd status little if any after hearing of a plan pushed for by Lampert's creditors that would've closed down both K-Mart and Sears...

  • Tuxedo Mark: My Walmart has them. As for Kmart, there are only 50 left in the entire country (according to their website). Maybe even less.

  • ASS-P: That Wal-Mart didn't carry the DC Giants either. When they first came out, I saw them there, and other " gimmick/stunt "-packaged issues. I read that some Targets were going to carry the DC Giants but I haven't seen any at any Target where I've been.

  • ASS-P: I went to a Wal-Mart-Mart recently and saw no digests, is what I meant.

  • ASS-P: ...Oh, and does anyone here eveI went to a Wal-Mart recently, and they did not have digests that I could see, or the brandedr see standard-format comic books being sold at other non-comics shop.places? The last I heard, DC still had some newsstand and I presume ACP's comic books would have some too.

Actually, it's just Archie. It's not short for Archibald.

In related news, the Queen has cancelled the palace's Netflix subscription.

Archie is (or was, at one time) not an uncommon name in England. England had its own long-running (1957-1983) Archie comic character in the form of ROBOT ARCHIE.



Additional background info and examples of the Robot Archie comic feature can be found here:

Here's yet another comic character named Archie... this one even pre-dating Archie Andrews' first appearance in PEP. Meet Archie Atkins, Desert Scout (Royal Australian Tank Corps). He first appeared in Quality Comics Group's MILITARY COMICS #1 (Aug. 1941). To be sure, this Archie was quickly forgotten and dropped from the line-up of features, as he was vastly overshadowed by the star of the comic, Blackhawk, and his paramilitary freelance air squadron, the Blackhawks (no more confusing than Archie Andrews and The Archies, I guess). This particular splash page was from issue #3, in case you're wondering.

...So I"m not the only person here weird enough to have made this connection :smitten: !!!!!!!!!!  By the way, there was a popular ventriloquist's dummy character on British radio and TV of the 40s and 50s called Archie Andrews! :D There's a Wikipedia entry for him.

ASS-P

...I remember that here, some years ago when Charlie Sheen was on that bizarre " setting up household with XXX stars " trip, someone did a fan art here showing Charlie with Betty and Veronica as two of his " angels " 8) :smitten:  - I sure 'nuff can't draw, but, IF :D ;D .........
