  • DeCarlo Rules: @irishmoxie -- It's definitely complete. All six of the 1958-59 Sy Reit/Bob White original issues, plus the feature-length "Good Guys of the Galaxy" by Tom DeFalco & Fernando Ruiz from ARCHIE #655, and three 5-page digest shorts that guest-starred Cosmo -- and the complete first issue of the Ian Flynn/Tracy Yarley COSMO (2017) thrown in for good measure. It follows the same layout/format as the previous JUGHEAD'S TIME POLICE, even though that didn't carry the "Archie Comics Presents..." trade dress. Not a bad buy for $11.

  • DeCarlo Rules: ...Marvel's earlier JOHN CARTER, WARLORD OF MARS in there, so the DE Tarzan comics need to go in a different box, and SHEENA (also a recent DE title) and DC's RIMA THE JUNGLE GIRL will help fill up that box.
    June 11, 2018, 07:40:48 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Recently. DE's unauthorized LORD OF THE JUNGLE Tarzan adaptations (and its authorized THE GREATEST ADVENTURE) won't fit into my existing box of previous Tarzan comics from Gold Key, DC, and Dark Horse, so I have to start a new box. Logically these get filed with DE's unauthorized WARLORD OF MARS comics (including DEJAH THORIS) and their authorized JOHN CARTER, WARLORD OF MARS. But I also want to squeeze Marve;
    June 11, 2018, 07:38:48 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Interesting. I tend not to group titles by publisher at all, if the characters were not created as work-for-hire (meaning the publisher is legally considered the 'author' of the character). Do they belong to that publisher's "universe" (assuming it has one)? There are some publishers like Dynamite Entertainment where the vast majority of the titles they publish are licensed, and thus were "inherited" from other publishers. Therefore it makes more sense to me to group them together in boxes with similar characters. Flash Gordon, The Phantom, and Mandrake comics (regardless of who the actual publisher was) go together in the same box because they're all classic adventure heroes licensed from Hearst Entertainment (formerly King Features Syndicate). Pulp fiction heroes like The Shadow, Doc Savage, and The Spider (regardless of the fact that the latter did not originate with the same publisher as the first two) also get grouped together. Space considerations allowing, Tarzan (and other Edgar Rice Burroughs adaptations) might share the same box with Sheena and Rima, but NOT with Ka-Zar, because he's a Marvel Universe character.

  • rusty: I do keep all Star Trek series together in their own section and all Star Wars books together.  I also keep all 2000AD titles together and manga books get their own section.  For titles that have switched publishers, I usually keep them all with the publisher that I identify them with the most.  Tarzan has been published by a variety of publishers, but I keep them with Dell/Gold Key.  Conan is starting to get a bit close with all the success Dark Horse has had, but I still identify Conan more with Marvel.
    June 11, 2018, 06:27:26 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Believe it or not, I even have a box labeled "Pseudo-manga" that contains comics published by American companies and created by American creators like Astro Boy & Racer X (Now Comics), Battle of the Planets (Gold Key & Top Cow/Image), Captain Harlock (Malibu), Godzilla (Dark Horse) and Ultraman. I just want to keep those separate from the boxes of real translated manga in floppy comic format.
    June 11, 2018, 03:34:17 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Well. the problem is when you get titles with licensed characters that aren't owned by the publisher. So if you collect Star Trek comics, you'd have different series published by Gold Key, Marvel, DC, and IDW (and I probably missed one in there). It doesn't make sense to me to put them in different boxes by publisher, but to each his own. Disney comics would be another example. There are even some instances where if I like a certain artist enough, I will put all his work regardless of publisher or characters into one box, like Paul Gulacy, Steve Rude, or Mike Allred (and file them chronologically from older to newer, rather than alphabetically). Those are examples where my interest in the creator far exceeds my relative interest in whatever characters are involved.
    June 11, 2018, 03:14:29 PM
  • rusty: That makes sense.  There are many ways that people can file books.  What I do is file by company or category and then alphabetically within each section.  My first category is Richie Rich then Archie, then other Harvey titles, then Disney, then other humor/kids books, then by company (unless it is a company where I don't have very many books from them.  Star Trek and Star Wars each get their own section as well.  I will probably revamp a bit when I do my next major sort/merge.  The biggest section by far for me is DC.
    June 11, 2018, 09:28:59 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: I don't even file my comics alphabetically. I file them according to how closely they're related to other titles, but it's all dependent on the number of issues I have of any given title, and what will fit into a single box. Fpr ACP comics I just put all the short-run series (whether an actual miniseries or just a not particularly successful title) into one box. Even though some of those short run series star Jughead, and I could as easily file those together with the main JUGHEAD title in another box. For longer running ACP titles, "girl" titles are sorted into different boxes than "boy" titles. Eventually when I have enough issues of BETTY (and BETTY AND ME and BETTY'S DIARY) they'll get their own box, and VERONICA will get her own box.
    June 10, 2018, 09:49:06 AM
  • rusty: I file Jughead under J and Reggie under R in all of their incarnations, though I do file the original Lois Lane and Jimmy Olsen books under S since that keeps them with the Superman books and also because they kept that title throughout their entire run.  If anyone wants to look up Jughead or Reggie in Overstreet, though, they will have to look under A for the early issues.
    June 10, 2018, 07:56:27 AM
  • BettyReggie: I can't wait to get that Reggie book. It's coming out the day after my 39th Birthday.
    June 10, 2018, 06:42:06 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Yeah, I never understood why publishers felt the need to point that out on the covers of a comic book, like maybe someone didn't really know who REGGIE was, and might buy it just because they noticed the words "Archie's Rival" above the big letters that spelled REGGIE? Same with "Archie's Pal" or "Superman's Pal" or "Superman's Girl Friend" -- like some potential buyer wouldn't know who Jughead, Jimmy Olsen, or Lois Lane was, but would know who Archie or Superman was? Just assume you're selling the product to idiots, I guess. Is anyone really filing REGGIE under "A" for Archie's Pal in their collections??
    June 10, 2018, 05:42:02 AM
  • rusty: In it's first incarnation, Reggie was titled ARCHIE'S RIVAL, REGGIE.  It wasn't until after the title was resurrected nearly a decade later that it became REGGIE and then REGGIE AND ME.
    June 09, 2018, 10:23:13 PM
  • Tuxedo Mark: I've never understood why those old titles had "and Me" in them, anyway. Why not just name the titles after the starring characters?
    June 09, 2018, 08:17:45 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Funny that the trade paperback collection is entitled REGGIE AND ME Vol. 1, when his floppy comic book series was actually titled just plain REGGIE for the first 18 issues (and going on hiatus for nine years in between issues #14 and 15). Since it's only a 224-page book, that should mean we'll be seeing reprints of stories from the first 9 (or maybe 10) issues. So shouldn't it be titled REGGIE Vol. 1? Unless they actually do plan to start the first volume with issue #19 from 1966 (the first classic Evilheart issue) where the title actually changed to REGGIE AND ME. My theory is that the ME in that title = Evilheart, unlike the prior titles ARCHIE AND ME (where ME = Mr. Weatherbee), or BETTY AND ME (where the ME = Archie).

What comics & books do you like that not Archie related?
« on: April 30, 2016, 10:34:12 PM »
I wantedto know what everyone reads besides Archie. For me I enjoy reading these comics
👓-Saga- I have about 75% of them. I also have 2 graphic novel of it. I have even rented the books I don't have of the series.
🌟-Invincible- I saw one of the series at the library & loved it so much. I keep renting more books from the library. I have about 8 issues of Invincible.
⚽-Morning Glories-is another I found at the library & it was so good. I had keep reading all the other Morning Glories Graphic Novels. Hunter reminds me of Archie & Ike is so much like Reggie. I have a few issues.
Books that I suggest everyone read there
Blankets-It's a huge book & It's a beautiful story.
Friends With Boys-which a Faith Erin Hicks books, her art is beautiful. I love the way she draws male characters. And another book of hers is Nothing Could Possibly Go Wrong, I rented it from the library & loved it so much I had to buy it.
Bad Houses is a great book, it was another library find that I loved so much I bought it.

For comics, I've only ever read Archie.


for other books, any books about baseball history or rock and roll history are usually what I read

DeCarlo Rules

Far, far too many to list here, even if I'm only considering the ones currently being published (but stuff that is currently being reprinted in hardcover and trade paperbacks does make up a significant percentage of that). I usually list what comics I get every week over on the "What comics are you reading?" thread.

irishmoxie

Really liking Jonesy, Jem and the Holograms, Lumberjanes, Princeless (even though the Make Yourself series isn't great), Harrow County  :smitten:, Rachel Rising. I'm really getting into horror comics (I guess they are more mystery) which surprises me because I don't like horror movies or gritty things at all.

Also really liked the EMET comics for women such as Finding Molly and The Wendy Project. I just wish they came out more often.

Black Magick. Paper Girls. Plutona. A lot of these are on hiatus right now which saves my wallet.

Bee and Puppycat. Grumpy Cat. Chi's Sweet Home  :smitten: Hero Cats (occasioonally) and Action Lab Dog of Wonder

Die Kitty Die. Super Suckers.

Fresh Romance another women's comic. I love the historical romance story in this one called Ruined. Very Jane Austen.

Lots of manga that people here are probably not interested in. Some manga from the Web Toon app.

I tried to only mention my favs that I have to read as soon as I get them.


BettyReggie

I have been reading Sunstone & Jem & The Holograms & Lumberjanes . I have a few Unbeatable Squirrel Girl & Black Canary & Deadly Class issues. I gave up on Harley Quinn & Zodaic Starforce Those 2 weren't good anymore. I have 3 issues of New Romancer. I don't have the issues but I really like Giant Days. I only have 1 issue of Paper Girls but the graphic novel is one the wait list at the library for me. It's cool that one of girls is named Erin that's my real name. I'm really looking foward to getting Nameless City from the Library, it's on my wait list. It's from Faith Erin Hicks.

I sometimes read Uncle Scrooge/ Donald Duck comics and Peanuts comics.

Doesn't Derek Charm do those comics? I can't wait to see his work on those 2 Jughead issues.

I think so. Yeah.

Anything not related to MARVEL or DC. Too much Superhero trash out there.  :buck2:

Get a life guys. Being outside when the sun shines is nice. Ever hear of a 'girl' or a 'date'?  ;D

  • You can write unreadable trash in any genre and conversely there is good writing in every genre as well — :-\ you do realize that what you’re saying is exactly what nearly everyone says about Archie comics?
  • I personally find nothing pleasant or nice about being outside when the sun shines.  :(

And you think smiting someone for having an opinion you don't like is good?  :knuppel2:

For being generally dismissive of other’s opinions and experiences sight-unseen, and not considering what “a life” or “nice” means to others, yes …
 
if a knee-jerk smite is all you can muster then so be it — I really had thought better of you …

Just one question. Why is it that you find it necessary to make yourself feel better by hating on other people for what they like?
Hate a publishing company if you must for what they publish, or a genre of fiction. If you don't like it, that's your choice. You should have stopped after your first 2 sentences, which is your legitimate opinion.
Hating on people whose entertainment choices you disagree with? NOT COOL.
My advice? Get outside with the sun shining in a very public place and read your Archie comic books there. Then see how many people you impress with how much cooler you are than readers of other types of comic books.

I have read Archie during a slow night at work and was made fun of a bit.  :-[  But mostly my male co-workers wanted to see how slutty/not slutty Betty and Veronica were dressed.


I do wish there were less superhero comics or rather a greater proportion of other types of stories. I think Image and IDW are the big players in that (though I like the smaller pubs even better) and hopefully there will be even more choice in the future. If people find out I like comics they always assume I know all the Marvel lore and start talking to me about the movies of which I have seen none.
