  • 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.

  • archiecomicscollector: I've been watching Chilling Adventures of Sabrina on Netflix...so no Riverdale means more time in Greendale :)

I've also been reading a few manga:
  DEVILMAN G[Grimoir] VOL 03 (of 5 tankobon) by Go Nagai & Rui Takato
  ONE-PUNCH MAN VOL 14: THE DEPTHS OF DESPAIR (tankobon) by ONE & Yusuke Murata
  TOKYO TARAREBA GIRLS VOL 01 (of 9 tankobon) by Akiko Higashimura
  BATTLE ANGEL ALITA: DELUXE EDITION HC VOL 04 (of 5) by Yukito Kishiro
  Go Nagai & Ken Ishikawa's GETTER ROBO DEVOLUTION VOL 01 (of 5 tankobon) by Eiichi Shimizu & Tomohiro Shimoguchi - I was looking forward to reading this one, Seven Seas' first release in the Getter Robo franchise since getting rights to Dynamic Pro's manga, but it was disappointing. DEVILMAN G is also a modern reboot/reimagining like this one, but it was so much better. Didn't care for the art style in DEVOLUTION at all, which seems sketchy and undetailed. I'm not too keen on the mecha redesigns, either. Although this is the most recent manga in the franchise, it's a poor choice to introduce the characters to American readers, and unless I'm reading the situation wrongly, it appears in this story that Professor Saotome (who's supposed to be one of the good guys) actually shoots an innocent man (or had his goons do it, I forget now) because "he knows too much". The sensationalized, over-the-top violent/gory stuff on display here (which is entirely appropriate in a horror-hero manga like DEVILMAN) just doesn't sit right -- trying to 'grim&gritty'-up a cornerstone franchise in the super robot genre just doesn't work for me.

And finishing off my reading of the various ANT-MAN/GIANT-MAN collected trades:
ANT-MAN/GIANT-MAN: GROWING PAINS TP
ASTONISHING ANT-MAN: THE COMPLETE COLLECTION TP
