DeCarlo Rules: I'm wondering now if that 9-11-2011 Sunday strip was the only one Dan Parent ever drew. IIRC the strip was drawn for the longest time by Henry Scarpelli, and then in more recent years (2000s) by Fernando Ruiz...  Thanks for the shout, Hanna!

DeCarlo Rules: They never say things like "cancelled". Things just come to an end. ARCHIE #713 came out six months ago, and there have been no new issues solicited since then...

DeCarlo Rules: It seems like my prediction of the ARCHIE series launched in 2015 came true... it lasted 5 years (or 47 issues, which would have been 4 years if it were published monthly). Oh well -- that was four issues more than Manga SABRINA...

DeCarlo Rules: Can't remember the last Archie floppy comic I bought that wasn't a #1 issue...

DeCarlo Rules: Not retired, but it seems like floppy one-shots will be more frequent compared to series.

Tuxedo Mark: Vol 2 of the The Riverdale Diaries graphic novel series is now available for preorder. It stars Veronica and will come out on November 16. Oddly, Vol. 2 is available on Kindle, whereas Vol. 1 seems to be a physical-only release.

What comics have you been reading?

Archie #7 - not great. Don't like how they wouldn't tell us what Reggie did. The series keeps teasing but doesn't reveal much. Also there wasn't much of the girls in this issue. I'm looking forward to Betty and Veronica when it comes out this summer.

I agree, it was just ok. Hardly any Betty in this one. But we did see her holding hands with Sayid. Maybe she finally moved on from Archie. I wonder if Sayid is boyfriend material?

Princeless Vol 2 and 3 - #3 featured my favorite character: Raven.

Yeah, I consider Book 3 to really be Raven Book 0 ... did you read the short stories book which shows their first meeting from a slightly different view?

As for Archie ... interesting to see Mr. Mantle for a change, and the interaction there ... it was an okay issue, nothing spectacular, but good.
Also the latest Henchgirl (#6) & working through PS238 ...

Anyone else having this problem? Since the site came back, it seems to always insist on putting extra spaces in between lines whenever I compose a post.

I read Archie #7 last night. Hopefully I'll read the latest Uncanny X-Men and Die Kitty Die! #2 tonight or tomorrow.

Uncanny X-Men #6 is some kind of lead-in to another massive crossover story, "Apocalypse War". As such, I'm already losing interest (the first five issues were better than I expected them to be), and having art by a couple of fill-in artists didn't help much. That's pretty much been the story of my X-Men reading experience though -- I read 6 or 8 issues, then there's some lousy crossover tie-in issues, and I quit reading.

JonInIowaCity

One thing that I'm liking (in theory at least) about the "Apocalypse Wars" is that it seems to be more of a thematic crossover instead of an actual crossover. Kind of like "Fall of the Mutants" back in the 80s. They all have Apocalypse stories, but the books aren't directly connected. I prefer crossovers like that because I can skip out on some of the books if I don't like those titles!!

I want to read The Best of Archie Book Four but it's checked out at the library  :(

invisifan

I suppose you can at least be happy there's at least one other Archie fan at or near your library system ... :-\

Read today...

SABRINA'S HOLIDAY SPECTACULAR #2 (1993) - There's a 3-part new story that takes up about half the issue; the rest are reprints (that I'd mostly read before). The new story tries to cover Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's, all in one story (the previous issue's story was completely Halloween-based). Just need to find the third issue now.
REGGIE'S REVENGE #1 (1994) - One new 8-page story, plus a bunch of Reggie-centric reprints. Surprisingly (they're all sourced), none of them originally from REGGIE's own series. All of the reprints have the "Reggie's Revenge" logo pasted on them, though.
WORLD OF JUGHEAD (Archie Giant Series) #542 - "Throughout History With Jughead!" - A bunch of short stories with Jughead existing in different time periods... no other explanation offered. (I was sort of hoping it could be retroactively explained by way of the Time Police, but... nah.)
FACULTY FUNNIES #1-5 (1989) - The complete series, which strangely enough, has both an "origin issue" and a final issue where the "Awesome Foursome" lose their superpowers for good. You don't see that often in a comic book series.
WORLD OF ARCHIE (Giant Series) #587, 599 - Two issues that introduced the EXPLORERS OF THE UNKNOWN, by Rich Margopoulis and Rex Lindsay (the same people responsible for JUGHEAD'S TIME POLICE). Kind of a shameless rip-off of Jack Kirby's Challengers of the Unknown, even to the point of the team having their secret base inside a mountaintop. It's surprising that DC's lawyers never sent ACP a cease-and-desist letter (or maybe they did, and that's when the series ended).

It's always fascinating when reading these older Archie Comics to look through the ads and see not only what they were publishing at that time, but what they were selling. 1990s Archies seem to have all kinds of merchandise offered through mail-order. These had some ads for things like the Riverdale High "Archie Romance Novels", t-shirts, hats, watches, a 1990 calendar, and posters, including two 6-foot tall posters of Archie and Jughead!

I read Archie Volume #1, the beautiful book that just came out. I read it for 15 minutes. I also read Archie #1- the Fiona Staple cover with white border & Archie #2-Paul Renaud variant & Archie #3-Andrew Robinson variant & Archie #4-Jaime Hernandez variant.
