  • DeCarlo Rules: It's crazy that ACP hasn't reprinted those 2 issues as a double-size one-shot. Or the lead story in a TP collection of vampire stories (including "Twilite" and others).

  • irishmoxie: That's crazy about those Betty and Veronica issues being worth so much. They're only about 6 years old. I'm pretty sure I have copies of them.

  • DeCarlo Rules: On a relatated note, the real FIRST Vampironica appeared in Larry Welz' underground comic Cherry Poptart #1 [link]. That can be had right now, CGCed at 9.4, at the Buy-It-Now price of $280 on ebay. Although the book had several subsequent printings, only the first printing ($2 cover price) contains the Vampironica story. Much, much scarcer than B&V #261 & 262, but then far fewer people seem to be aware of its existence. It may not be the same Vampironica as the one that appears in her own comic book from ACP, but then you can easily make the argument that neither is the Vampironica from B&V 261-262.

  • rusty: Crazy.  I obviously missed that back then.
    November 03, 2018, 10:06:11 pm
  • DeCarlo Rules: Yes, I mentioned this a while back somewhere around the time Vampironica #1 was first solicted or shipped. I even mentioned it to Dan Parent and told him if he still had copies he should get them CGC'ed.

  • rusty: Apparently Betty and Veronica #261 and 262 (1987 series) are popular now due to Vampironica.  Somebody actually purchased a copy of #261 for $299 on ebay recently.

PLASTIC MAN #1 (of 6)

- Awesome find! I loved it! May do a more detailed review later, time permitting.
CHERYL BLOSSOM #27 - Cheryl is trapped in a hedge maze with Veronica! One of the fairly rare stories where it's just the two of them, without Betty or Archie. Cheryl and Jason crash a Halloween party wearing the same costumes as Veronica and Archie (oh yeah, it's NOT a coincidence).
ARCHIE & FRIENDS #11 - Chuck gets a pet iguana, but Nancy is NOT thrilled. Sabrina has problems taking care of Cleara's invisible dog.
JUGHEAD #53, 137
VERONICA #20, 21, 45, 70
- What was up with that weird "Whimsical Rich Girl" period (as it says over the cover logo masthead of #20 & 21) where the word "whimsy" is referred to often in dialogue, and oddball characters like Sassy Thrasher, Aerobic Liz, and New Age Crystal show up?
BETTY AND ME #119, 199, 200
BETTY #3, 59, 86
- Another one of those "Archie's Angels" stories. I've lost track of how many of these there are... at least four, I think, counting the one(s) from the 1970s. The most often reprinted one is that story "Melvin's Angels" from AGB&V #277 (Jan. 1979). That's the one where B&V go to investigate a health spa and really get worked over by the head masseuse, the muscle-y Olga (only to discover that Melvin sent them to the wrong spa by mistake). Then there's this one from B&V Spec 44, inspired by the movie remake of the old TV series, which was followed up by a direct sequel in B&V Spec 59 (in #44, Brigette Reilly is the 3rd "Angel"... in #59, she's replaced by a much more logical candidate for 3rd Angel... Ginger Lopez). I could swear that there's at least one more of these that had Tomoko Yoshida (or was it Kumi Tamura?) as the 3rd Angel. I also kind of vaguely recall another older story (not connected to the one-shot "Melvin's Angels") that parodied the original TV series.

...and on top of all those, I still have another 10 issues of BETTY AND VERONICA (from both series) that I haven't read yet! Conditions on these were mostly VG to Fine+, so not bad. Can't believe I found a copy of THE CARNEYS at last! All these for 50 cents each.
