  • DeCarlo Rules: What I don't understand is why they're trying to discourage subscriptions to B&V FRIENDS Jumbo digest. It's been published at 10 times per year frequency for the last 3 years -- just like the other B&V jumbo digest. So if they're both published just as often, why do they offer a choice of 10 issue or 20 issue subscriptions for BETTY & VERONICA, but only a 6 issue subscription for B&V FRIENDS? You can get a 12-issue subscription to B&V FRIENDS on the website, but if I remember correctly, the printed ad for subs only offers the 6-issue sub option. Why isn't it the same option as the other digests (10 issues or 20 issues), if they're all published 10 times a year? And they ARE.

  • Tuxedo Mark: Just looked at Archie Comics' subsciption page. Archie Meets Batman '66 is a six-issue miniseries. Archie 1941 is a five-issue miniseries. There's a six-issue subscription for Betty and Veronica: Friends Forever and Vixens (surprisingly; might get transferred to the new B&V title) and a twelve-issue subscription for Riverdale. Riverdale Digest isn't listed, so it looks like it's been cancelled.

  • CAPalace: I'm a woman btw and I'm just so sick of the blatant anti-men thing going on in comics these days. It's not doing women any favors either. :/
    July 09, 2018, 09:05:40 PM
  • CAPalace: They're banking on Archie 700 to sell a lot because "lol a new number wow lol" and it will for the first issue but it'll just go back to the average/poor numbers it had before. And YOU KNOW with that writer on B+V it's going to turn into an anti-men, oooh girl power lol violence against men and demeaning men is feminism and fun lol lol Good luck. I'll stick to Ebay to find the DeCarlo stuff thanks.
    July 09, 2018, 09:04:54 PM
  • Tuxedo Mark: I'm looking forward to the new B&V series. Personally, I think that previous B&V series by what's-his-name was way worse than anything that Rotante wrote on Vixens.
    July 09, 2018, 08:43:47 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: So, so predictable... they love to exploit NUMBERS, whether it's a single digit (1 or 0) or a triple-digit ending in 00. Good lord, I can't believe they're actually giving Jamie Rotante ANOTHER B&V series to write ruin! She is the worst I've read -- although it's a tough call, Marguerite Bennett was pretty horrible as well. Nick Spencer can actually be quite good as a writer... or pretty bad, depending on the character and the direction. He was great on ANT-MAN and SUPERIOR FOES OF SPIDER-MAN (both books that had a strong humorous subtext), and not so hot on CAPTAIN AMERICA and THE AVENGERS. And he's he new writer on (yet another) first issue of THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, so I wouldn't guess the ARCHIE gig will last. ACP could probably only afford to hire him for that ONE issue, #700.

  • Vegan Jughead: ARCHIE isn't on hiatus officially. The last official word from Archie Comics is that there is "big news about the flagship ARCHIE title" coming up after the "1941" miniseries. We'll see. RIVERDALE is supposed to come back early '19 after the TV show returns.
    July 05, 2018, 06:14:32 AM
  • Mr.Lodge: Think it's time for new leadership, especially in the creative front?
    July 05, 2018, 03:09:04 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: I guess there's still THE HUNGER and VAMPIRONICA, but they're still so new that it's hard to think of them as "ongoing".
    July 05, 2018, 12:14:16 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: So both ARCHIE and RIVERDALE are "on hiatus"? That means ACP has no ongoing floppy comic titles. Not a good sign. Good thing they still have the digests going (knock on wood).

Picked up about 30 Archie Comics back issues from the 50c boxes last week. Don't know when I'll get around to reading them, but some of those are actually in pretty good condition, for ACP comics from the late 1980s. Some early issues of VERONICA, DILTON'S STRANGE SCIENCE, LAUGH (Vol. 2), plus BETTY AND ME, BETTY AND VERONICA, and a couple of Archie Giant Series B&V SPECTACULARs.

05-17 to 05-24-18:
JIMMYS BASTARDS #8
THE FURTHER ADVENTURES OF NICK WILSON #5 (of 5)
G.I. JOE VS THE SIX MILLION DOLLAR MAN #4 (of 4)
HIT-GIRL #4

COSMO #5 (of 5) - Sorry to see it go. Along with YOUR PAL ARCHIE and MIGHTY CRUSADERS, it's one of a very few floppy comics ACP has published in the last year or two that I really enjoyed. There's still SUPERTEENS VS CRUSADERS upcoming, but that's a mere 2-issue microseries, and then ARCHIE MEETS BATMAN '66 (which I'm not sure how many issues there are supposed to be of... probably somewhere between 4 and 6). And then there's the upcoming DIE KITTY DIE: HEAVEN & HELL from AstroComix and (hopefully) more of SUPER SUCKERS from Darin Henry's SitComics.

SCOOBY-DOO TEAM-UP (with Blue Falcon & Dynomutt) #38 - It's officially my favorite DC comic book right now (with Future Quest Presents in 2nd place). Writer Sholly Fisch does a great job of working in Easter eggs and in-jokes for long-time DC fans, and handles the humor deftly with a light touch, and I'm loving the variety of DC and Hanna-Barbera guest-stars.

LOONEY TUNES #243 - It's good, but the writing tends to be variable from story to story.

JUSTICE LEAGUE: NO JUSTICE #3 (of 4) - DC heroes and villains reconfigured into new Justice League teams to battle 4 giant cosmic beings (somewhat like Marvel's Galactus in that they feed on the energies of entire planets)

FLASH #47 ("Flash War", Part 1) - Not sure if I'll stick with this, or if it's really going anywhere in particular with this story of Wally West's pre-Flashpoint/New 52 reboot memories.

DETECTIVE COMICS #981 - "Batmen Eternal" Conclusion. Looks like they're breaking up the Bat-family team that starred in this title since the first Rebirth issue (#934, which restored the legacy numbering) and changing the writer, so this might be my last issue. I enjoy the Batman-inspired protege characters, and liked seeing them interact as a regular team, and James Tynion IV was one of the few of the more recent crop of writers at DC whose work I liked. The new writer Bryan Hill, is an unknown to me, and the solicitations for #982 and beyond don't really interest me.

WONDER WOMAN #47 - I haven't been enjoying this as much the last couple of issues, but I guess I'll keep following it through issue #50, which appears to be the last written by James Robinson (an old favorite of mine). Looks like I'm dropping most of the few DC in-universe titles which I still read. (I'm not thrilled with the idea of Brian Michael Bendis taking over on Superman, either. He pretty much ruined Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy for me, over at Marvel.)

THE TERRIFICS #4
- Still reading this (for a while, at least) because I enjoy Jeff Lemire's work, especially on Dark Horse's BLACK HAMMER and its various spinoff miniseries).

INFINITY COUNTDOWN: DARKHAWK #1 (of 4)
THE BEEF #4 (of 5)
BLACK HAMMER: AGE OF DOOM #2
PELLUCIDAR: AT THE EARTH'S CORE #1
(one-shot)
STAR TREK: NEW VISIONS #21: "THE ENEMY OF MY ENEMY"
THE SEASON OF THE SNAKE #1 & 2

Millenium Edition: Superman's Girl Friend LOIS LANE #1 (1958/2000 reprint)
Millenium Edition: Superman's Pal JIMMY OLSEN #1 (1954/2000 reprint)
Millenium Edition: Tales Calculated to Drive You MAD #1 (1952/2000 reprint)

WORLD'S FINEST COMICS #166 (May 1967) - This was the first and only appearance of Bron Wayn E7705, the 20th direct descendant of Bruce Wayne and the future Batman of 2967. In this story, "The Danger of the Deadly Duo" written by then-High School student Jim Shooter (later to become the editor-in-chief at Marvel Comics in the 1980s), he first teams up with the Superman of 2967 [Klar Ken T5477] to battle their two archenemies, the future Joker and Superman's arch-foe Muto (a yellow-skinned hyperencephalic mutant with advanced telekinetic powers). The story was a sequel to previous appearances of the Superman of the 30th Century in SUPERMAN #181 and ACTION COMICS #338-39 (all written by Edmond Hamilton, who also wrote many of the early Legion of Super-Heroes stories). Unlike some other occasional diversions from the normal Superman continuity of the time, this one was not labeled as an "Imaginary Story" that "may or may not ever happen someday", but this was the final story in this sequence of future Superman tales. I loved searching out and discovering these oddball "special" stories as a young comic book collector. All of them were reprinted in the 2008 trade paperback collection, SUPERMAN: PAST AND FUTURE.
