  • Tuxedo Mark: Cheryl's jacket is red, because she's Cheryl M.F. Blossom, and she can wear whatever custom-made clothes she wants, thankyouverymuch. :P

  • DeCarlo Rules: That's pretty much the whole point of having an internet -- it connects you to entertainment, information, and people who would otherwise be too far away from you physically, or would involve much greater effort on your part to connect with. And although there are some advantages for comic book collectors inherent in the direct-market dedicated comic book shop system, the major BIG (obvious) DISadvantage is that only a few thousand of those shops exist, compared to the huge number of retailers who used to carry comic books along with their other products back in the days of the "newsstand distribution system".

  • Tuxedo Mark: The only "local" comic shop within "reasonable" distance of my house is 18 miles away, in the next county. Yeah, no, I'll continue getting my comics digitally.

  • DeCarlo Rules: @Archiecomicxfan215 - FCBD comic books may be free to you, but the retailer has to PAY for those comic books he gives away for free. The publishers of the FCBD comics make no profit off them, and they're distributed to retailers by Diamond Comics for free, but they have to charge comic shop owners money for them, because paper and printing costs money. Your local comic shop owner loses a small amount of money with every FCBD comic book he gives away. Of course the whole idea behind FCBD is that sampling those free comic books will create interest in customers actually BUYing the retail versions of those FCBD comic books later on.

  • Archiecomicxfan215: This year at the comic book store near me I was only allowed to choose 3 comics. Previous years it was 5. My boyfriends local comic book store he was allowed up to 5 comics free. Don’t know why it changed near me.

  • Archiecomicxfan215: My boyfriend went to a comic book store near his house and picked me up Die Kitty Die and Riverdale
    May 05, 2018, 11:35:02 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Don't forget to pick up the FCBD issue of DIE KITTY DIE: I Love You to Death! by Dan & Fernando from Chapterhouse Comics! Oh, and I guess if you care about that RIVERDALE thing, you could pick up the FCBD issue where Pop Tate eavesdrops on all the conversations of his teenage customers (makes him sound a little creepy, if you ask me...) Doesn't an adult business proprietor have more important things to worry about???

YOUNG MONSTERS IN LOVE 80-PAGE GIANT #1 (one-shot) - A Valentine's Day Special featuring ten short stories of DC's monsters (Man-Bat, Frankenstein, Solomon Grundy, Raven, Deadman, Swamp Thing, Monsieur Mallah & The Brain, Andrew "I, Vampire" Bennett, Etrigan the Demon, and the Creature Commandos) in love. Obviously conceived as a fun experiment in creating a mashup of the monster comics and romance comics genres, I suspected that there might be a tendency on the writers' part to indulge in parodying or poking fun at the characters, but the stories here all seem to take on the challenge of the premise while keeping all these stand-alone stories in-continuity with their current regular stories -- they're mostly bittersweet little 8-page episodes. Not bad, really, although I think I'd have been happier seeing the opposite approach -- just throwing continuity to the wind in favor of a bunch of funny/happy ending-type throwaway shorts. DC Comics could use a little bit of humor (which you pretty much only get in SCOOBY-DOO TEAM UP) once in a while, and this would have been a perfect opportunity for that. The cover seems like a tongue-in-cheek riff on a typical old-school romance comic book, but that's about as lighthearted as it gets here. I guess the typical DC reader doesn't have much indulgence for that sort of thing.
