  • DeCarlo Rules: @Kallell - Right. That's what I meant. The solicitations that came OUT for the months of November, December, and January... as Diamond Comics Distribution dates their catalogs. And those ACP comics digests solicited in those catalogs would indeed have shipping dates in the months of January, February, and March.  Which means ALL the issues of Archie, World of Archie, Betty and Veronica, and B & V Friends in those solicitations are JUMBO COMICS digests. Unlike those titles, Riverdale Comics Digest, Marvel Comics Digest, and Archie and Me Comics Digest haven't varied in their format from one issue to the next.

  • Archie Comics Collector(Kalell): Very interesting observation DeCarlo Rules. Actually December 2017 was the last month in which there was still three Digest formats: Annual, Comics Double Digest and a Jumbo Comics Digest. As I looked through Jan, Feb and March solicits it seems that the main two formats are Comics Digest 128 pager: Archie and Me and the rest of the main Archie Digests will just be Jumbo Comics Digest 192 pagers. They seem to be doing away with the Annuals and Comics Double Digests for now.

  • DeCarlo Rules: Looking back through the ACP solicitations from November, December and January, it just dawned on me that EVERY regular digest title solicted (except for Archie and Me Comics Digest, Riverdale Comics Digest, and Marvel Comics Digest) is a JUMBO COMICS Digest (192 pages). Are Jumbo Comics Digests the new permanent format? It sure looks that way.

DeCarlo Rules

I really liked Life with Kevin. We need more "young adult" comics like that available. The 20 something making it in the city plot was interesting. Your Pal Archie was just ok for me.

I think I liked Your Pal Archie a lot better. I was a little puzzled by the last-minute appearance of Shrill in Life With Kevin, since she just showed up at the end and really didn't have much of a part in the series at all (why bother even adding her to the cast?). I was put off more than a little by the lack of traditional full-color printing, and again -- why was the trade paperback printed in the smaller 6"x 9" size (formerly used for the ARCHIE & FRIENDS ALL-STARS trade collections, but discontinued since 2014)?  The unusual coloring choice seemed to be a visual flag to mark LWK as being aimed at an older-than-traditional reading audience, yet the print format of the TPB indicates exactly the opposite.  ???

I guess just to be consistently inconsistent, I can then expect ACP to print the Your Pal Archie TPB collection in the standard 7" x 10" (same size as floppy comics) format?
