  • Tuxedo Mark: My review of "The Best of Buds", a B&V story from 2011 [link]
    February 16, 2018, 09:50:56 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: @irishmoxie -- If they are indeed reprinting those early B&V Spectaculars from the Archie Giant Series, I'd agree it's a good choice (although it makes me wonder why they'd bypass the Betty & Veronica Summer Fun issues, which would be even more desirable to have). The early Life With Archie issues are a good choice as well, and I'll be buying both of those collections. Archie at Riverdale High, one of the dullest titles, is more of a puzzling choice. I won't be buying that one.
    February 16, 2018, 05:48:41 AM
  • irishmoxie: I own all of B&V Spectacular and most of the later issues of Life with Archie but I would definitely get these collections as they are easier to read without worrying about tearing the pages of fragile comics. Digital would be even better for me.
    February 15, 2018, 04:27:51 PM
  • irishmoxie: I don't see that classic B&V Vol 1 from the 50s up for pre-order on Amazon anymore. So it looks like they've ditched that idea for now.
    February 15, 2018, 04:26:14 PM
  • irishmoxie: I think their idea was to go with the more "edgy" Classic Archie ie fantasy stories from Life with Archie. I haven't read many of the Archie at Riverdale High books but my impression was that they were the "issue" books focusing on a particular issue pertinent to teens like protesting school lunches or something.
    February 15, 2018, 04:19:01 PM
  • irishmoxie: I suspect they will start the Spectacular collection with the Dan Parent stuff because that is more distinguishable. Older B&V Spectacular stuff is very similar to regular B&V.
    February 15, 2018, 04:17:08 PM
  • rusty: Dark Horse could still have the rights, even if they are not using them.  Archie may be thinking that the Life With Archie and Archie at Riverdale High books wi be more marketable than the older comics.  If so, I would agree with that thinking.  Cosmo is an interesting choice for a collection, but maybe they are hoping to capitalize on the new series or have other plans.
    February 15, 2018, 08:28:49 AM
  • Vegan Jughead: They also have "Cosmo: The Complete Merry Martian" up for pre-order!  How many of these things are in the works? This could be cool, but as DeCarlo Rules says, it's some kind of weird titles they're starting with.
    February 15, 2018, 07:12:42 AM
  • Vegan Jughead: At least these don't say they'll be black and white!  It says they're  "presented in the new higher-end format of Archie Comics Presents".  That sounds promising if they execute it well, and, you know, actually produce and release the books.
    February 15, 2018, 07:11:06 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: I'm not really sure if the B&V Spectacular collection goes back to include the individual B&V Spec issues from the Archie Giant Series, or starts with #1 of the 1990s series, either.
    February 15, 2018, 12:11:39 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Dark Horse has only really done the 1940s (and early 1950s) ARCHIE and 2 volumes of JUGHEAD, and they haven't solicited a new volume in a couple of years. ACP could certainly start with any title (Archie's Girls B&V, or Archie's Pals 'n' Gals, for instance) besides those two.
    February 15, 2018, 12:08:18 AM
  • rusty: Are the rights to the older titles still tied up with Dark Horse maybe?
    February 14, 2018, 03:54:08 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Seems odd that they'd start off a line of chronological reprint volumes with titles other than the main ones. Whatever happened to the trade collecting the earliest issues of Archie's Girls Betty and Veronica?

Week of 05-03-17:

BATMAN #22 ("The Button", Pt. 3 of 4)
BANE CONQUEST #1 (of 12)
FALL AND RISE OF CAPTAIN ATOM #5 (of 6)
RICK & MORTY #25
UNCLE SCROOGE #430
IRON FIST #3
PROJECT SUPERPOWERS: HERO KILLERS #1
(of ?)
DOC SAVAGE: THE RING OF FIRE #2 (of 4)
EMPOWERED & THE SOLDIER OF LOVE #3 (of 3)
PREDATOR: HUNTERS #1 (of 5)

VALERIAN (NN) free promo comic magazine - Not bad for free. 20+ page reprint excerpted from the beginning of "Ambassador of the Shadows" graphic novel, basis of the forthcoming (July 21) film Valerian: City of a Thousand Planets.

JUDGE DREDD: THE GARTH ENNIS COLLECTION TP - Notable mainly for reprinting the stories which introduced Judge-Sergeant Charlie Joyce of Murphyville (formerly the Republic of Ireland, but by the 22nd century, an Irish-theme park). Appropriate, since Garth Ennis is probably the most well-known Irish comic writer.  **** 4 out of 5 stars.

KIKAIDER CODE 02 VOL. 1 & 2 (of 6) - [CMX, 2006 tankobon] - A modern (2000) update of Shotaro (Cyborg 009, Kamen Rider) Ishinomori's 1973 tokusatsu hero TV series/manga. Not bad for its type. **** 4 out of 5 stars.

STRONTIUM DOG: TRAITOR TO HIS KIND TP
STRONTIUM DOG: BLOOD MOON TP - Here's a rarity that you hardly ever see in the world of comics publishing. These stories, which are reprinted from from the long-running British sci-fi comic 2000 AD (circa 2004-2009), show the original creators (writer John Wagner and artist Carlos Ezquerra) still in top form, more than 30 years after first creating the character (1978). If anything, they've only honed their talents and aged like fine wine. *****5 out of 5 stars.

JUGHEAD'S DOUBLE DIGEST #127 (Feb. 2007) - Another issue from the time when these digests usually contained multiple (some new) stories by Fernando Ruiz. Only a couple of Boldman/Lindsey 5-pages shorts in this one, and the usual complement of Samm Schwartz stories. There were 3 or 4 stories featuring The Archies, and a 1-page gag strip (not credited, but looks like Al Hartley) in which Sabrina makes a cameo appearance (with no dialogue) in a single panel. Only a slightly-above average issue for this time period. ***3 out of 5 stars.

JUDGE DREDD: MUTANTS IN MEGA-CITY ONE TP - A collection of shorter tales in which Dredd faces off against mutants. The first half of the book is a pretty weak, but the second half is particularly strong, especially the title story and a couple of follow-ups (all written by John Wagner with art by Colin MacNeil), in which Dredd proposes to change the law of Mega-City One forbidding mutants as citizens (and it turns out that Dredd has mutant cousins). ***4 out of 5 stars.

THE ROOK ARCHIVES VOL. 1 HC - My only disappointment is that it's so short (120 pages). Contains the first six installments of this series about the time-traveling hero Restin Dane (a descendant of the unnamed protagonist of H.G. Wells' The Time Machine), which ran in Warren Publishing's black & white horror comic book EERIE in the 1970s. The Rook later went on star in his own black & white comic magazine for 17 issues from 1979-1982, and I hope to see those reprinted by Dark Horse Comics as well. **** 4.5 out of 5 stars (had to subtract half-a-star only because of the number of pages).
