    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?

It's SO good!

... I could almost forget about new Archie stories if DKD came out as a print comic every month. I'd vote for that (if I was allowed to vote) before Your Pal Archie. Nothing against the latter, but it couldn't possibly be as funny as DKD (because ACP wouldn't allow that kind of outrageousness).

Tomorrow, I plan to organize my comics. I bought these dividers where I can write The Archie section, B&V Section, Reggie & Me Section etc. It's going take a long time.

1. Did you get the white cardboard ones or the plastic ones? If you got the cardboard ones you can just print the names of the comic titles neatly, but if you got the plastic ones it's better to use one of those label-making machines to make them look really professional (just like in a comic shop with back-issue bins). The label-making machines are not that expensive, so it's not a bad idea if you plan to use divider cards to organize your whole collection.

2. Do you have a lot of issues of Reggie & Me (or are you just talking about the New Riverdale 5-issue miniseries)?

3. Have you ever noticed a regular artist, or one particular artist who appears on Reggie & Me stories more often than others? I've always wondered about that. Assuming, that is, that you're familiar enough with the different artists' styles to be able to identify them by sight, because I know back in the 60s/70s/80s when Reggie & Me was being published they didn't have credits on the stories. I don't have a lot of those issues myself.

I often see label makers at thrift stores though I think it'd be more fun to design your own dividers with a picture of the character on there.


I used to have more Reggie and Me but I'm pretty sure I donated them to my local Half Price Books.


Anyone have any better ideas than long boxes to organize comics? I'm in the process of moving (again...ugh) and some of the plastic tubs I was storing my comics in got crushed in the last move. Thankfully the comics survived unharmed. I have them in those thick cardboard book boxes from U-Haul right now. I find those long/short boxes from comic book shops unwieldy. It's very difficult to flip through comics easily to find what you want if the box is overstuffed. And if it's not overstuffed the comics fall over. I'm asking more for my new place...how to display and easily find comics in a large collection.

I'm asking more for my new place...how to display and easily find comics in a large collection.

The long ones I can understand. But the SHORT ones? How much smaller can the box be and still be useful? There are a couple of solutions. You can make your own (you'll need LOTS of thick corrugated cardboard) spacers for the boxes. Simply take a BIG LONG piece of corrugated cardboard, and cut the height to a little shorter than comic book height, 8"-9"; but you need to leave plenty of length (how much is up to you and the thickness of the cardboard), because you are going to be folding the thing like a zigzag accordion, in sections the same approximate width of a comic (6"-7"), folding it back and forth in alternating directions. This works best with the really thick, double-corrugated cardboard, because you're depending on the cardboard wanting to spring back and expand from a flattened multi-folded zigzag, after you place it in the empty space behind the comics themselves. You'll have to experiment to see how many folds you need to make, depending on the resistance of the cardboard to staying flattened. Start taking groceries home in cardboard boxes instead of bags, and experiment with cutting those up. Those usually have to be pretty strong to hold liquid containers, glass jars, and metal cans. You can always add multiple pieces depending on the amount of space in the box you have to fill. Works pretty well with the short boxes, but they need to be at least half to 2/3rds full of comics. If the cardboard you use still isn't thick enough to be "springy", try overlapping the entire length on itself before you start folding the zigzags to give it a double-thickness to start with. Also, whenever it's feasible (depending how big a piece of cardboard you start with), don't align the folds with the direction of the corrugation -- fold "against the grain".

The other solution is to just to use the short boxes (personally, I gave up on the long ones ten years ago), but you'll have to give up on the idea of being able to flip through the comics. Fill them with comics laid FLAT, and then you don't need to make them any heavier (= "unwieldy") than you want them, but then you're going to need another empty box whenever you want to take them ALL out and look through them, just standing them on end for as long as you're playing around looking for something.

They make those corrugated plastic ones too (same
