  • DeCarlo Rules: You won't have to wait longer than next Wednesday, Vegan. The Best of Josie is on Diamond's confirmed shipping list for next week.
    August 17, 2017, 02:42:59 PM
  • Vegan Jughead: Good point on the pricing.  The new Josie and the Pussycats trade is only $9.99 and I can't wait for it.  I can't imagine they're moving many digests at retail.  The hardcore geeks like us subscribe but I doubt our numbers are large.
    August 17, 2017, 10:01:49 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: @Vegan - That investment capital helped pay for Adam Hughes, and printer's bill, plus they resurrected a few of their old cancelled solicits on trade paperbacks that the work had already been completed on.
    August 17, 2017, 09:45:09 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: I'm going to take a wild guess and say that ARCHIE AND ME DIGEST must contain a new 20-page story. But why wouldn't they advertise that fact? It's baffling trying to guess what they're thinking.
    August 17, 2017, 09:37:32 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: So Double Digests are 160 pages for $5.99, but ARCHIE AND ME DIGEST is 128 pages for $6.99? Yet somehow a 416-page trade paperback is priced at $9.99?? Or $12.99 for 104 pages of Adam Hughes reprints. I guess they must be using the old "dart-board pricing" method!
    August 17, 2017, 09:28:34 AM
  • Vegan Jughead: Archie November 2017 solicitations: Digests are up to $5.99!  Annuals are $6.99 so I guess Jumbos will be $7.99?  No one is paying that.  Subscribe or don't bother.  [link]
    August 17, 2017, 08:32:09 AM
  • Vegan Jughead: DCR and Downloader, remember they also got that investment capital last year.  I think it was for a few hundred thousand dollars.  I don't know how long that will last, but I'm sure they're using that.
    August 17, 2017, 06:46:26 AM
  • BettyReggie: I saw the November 2017 Solicitations. Fiona Staples is doing a few covers. I can't wait to see what they look like though because they didn't show them yet.

What Cartoon Would Be A Good Live Action Movie?
« on: July 21, 2016, 08:46:10 AM »
Setting aside Archie (if they ever did it right), I'd go for Archer, or better yet, The Herculoids. The CGI alone could be cool. Zok, Igoo, Tundro, and the biggest challenge, Gloop and Gleep, would be awesome. Get a great script, of course. Space Ghost and (not Harvey) Birdman could have potential. Mightor? Possible. Jonny Quest should have been had a movie a while back. Discuss! :)

There's so many.

Just for scope, characters, and actions, I'll go Robotech.

Yeah! Why hasn't there been a Jonny Quest movie? That cartoon with Sherman and Peabody would be pretty cool as a movie.  I guess you could give the dog peanut butter to make its mouth move.  Sorry Peta.

I have to go with Clutch Cargo.

There were some great stories with Clutch, Spinner and Paddlefoot. The strange Syncro-Vox system gave the limited animation efforts a unique look with the inserted film of their lips moving. Strange stuff, but fun stuff. it would be a very interesting live action movie. Maybe the lips could be animated!

Second choice: anyone remember Colonel Bleep?

There already was a Mr. Peabody & Sherman movie (and a Dudley Do-Right movie, an Adventures of Bullwinkle & Rocky movie, and even a Boris & Natasha movie). Mr. Peabody & Sherman was all-CGI, Adventures of Rocky & Bullwinkle was live-action with CGI characters, and the others strictly live-action. Be careful what you wish for, though -- let's not forget they turned Speed Racer into a live-action movie (I actually saw that one in a theater, and it felt like being trapped inside a pinball game). I can't help but think Hollywood would completely mess up something like Jonny Quest, losing absolutely everything that made it cool as a cartoon in the first place. The Scooby-Doo movies weren't bad (for what they were), but for the most part that's more the exception than the rule. Most movies based on cartoons seem to turn out really badly. I guess if I had to pick one, I'd say Dynomutt.

Ok, sorry.  Not a movie person.  Didn't know Sherman and Peabody were already a movie.  What about that Penguin and walrus? How about that old dude who spins a globe and tells tall tales of his adventures? I think he might be a tippler.  :)

Tennessee Tuxedo & Chumly (Tennessee, the penguin, was voiced by Don Adams of "Get Smart" fame), and The World of Commander McBragg was the old dude who spins a globe -- "In his world, he's a king! He can do anything! Or so says the brag of McBragg". I think the only "insert" cartoons you missed were Klondike Kat ("I'll make mince-meat out of that mouse!") and the Go-Go Gophers, all of which have remained untouched by feature films. The exception to that bunch was the live-action UNDERDOG feature (made by Disney no less), which apart from filching some of the original character names (Polly Purebread and Simon Bar Sinister), had little to do with the cartoon. All of those original cartoons (along with The King Leonardo and Odie Show, which had as insert cartoons The Hunter and Tudor Turtle) were Total Television productions, and often get confused with the Jay Ward productions like Rocky & Bullwinkle, Dudley Do-Right, and George of the Jungle (who also had a live action movie) -- chiefly because both companies used the same Mexican animation studio to do the actual animation (scripts, storyboards, character design, music and voice acting were all handled by Jay Ward and Total Television, respectively).
