    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.

How did you enjoy Betty and Veronica Vixens?

I was a little underwhelmed by it. I still have more interest in it than things like the New Riverdale ARCHIE or B&V by Adam Hughes, but I didn't like it as much as JUGHEAD #8-16, though I'll give it a few more issues. I don't really expect it to run more than 6 or 8 issues, anyway.


How was the Sugarplum story in Archie and Me?

It's not really what I'd call a Sugarplum story. She's IN it, briefly, but it's really another Jingles story. The gist of the plot here is that Sugarplum used her magic powers to remove Jingles' own magical abilities as a brownie, so now he has to mooch off Archie until he figures out some way that he can get Sugarplum to restore his powers. As for why Sugarplum would do that to Jingles, he says it's because he was dating a friend of Sugarplum's, but then he started dating someone else, and Sugarplum found out about it. There's no reference made to those stories from less than a decade ago, where Sugarplum and Jingles (in their human guises as Susan and Jimmy) actually dated each other.

WEEK OF 11-29-17:

FRANKENSTEIN [by Dick Briefer], in:
 * PRIZE COMICS #7 (Dec 1940) to #44 (Aug 1944) [8 pages each = 288 pages]
 * FRANKENSTEIN #18 (Mar 1952) to #33 (Nov 1954) [230 pages]

Wow, what a wild ride. Frankenstein... the novel, the movies, the creator of life OR the monster he created, have always fascinated me, and every few years I find myself returning to the Frankenstein mythos with renewed enthusiasm. Frankenstein's monster would seem like an unlikely protagonist for an ongoing comic book feature, especially since in both of Briefer's versions he's an unrelenting murdererous maniac with a deep-rooted hatred for all mankind. Those were two completely unrelated different versions of Frankenstein's Monster (and Briefer also did a third, humorous version as well -- which appeared in both Prize Comics #45 to #68, and concurrently in the first 17 issues of Frankenstein, from mid-1944 to the end of 1948). Hard to decide which one I liked better, but the WWII version was possibly a little more outrageous and surprising in its inventiveness. In the later early-1950s self-titled comic book, the monster never speaks, like his Universal Pictures counterpart, but in the Prize Comics series, he's an articulate and intelligent fiend, like the monster in Mary Shelley's original novel. Unlike most comics of the era, there's actually a loose continuity connecting the Frankenstein stories in Prize Comics. From 1943 to 1944, the Prize Comics Frankenstein feature took some strange turns. Finally captured and put on trial for his crimes against humanity in the August 1943 issue, the case for the Frankenstein monster is argued by a scientist, one Professor Carrol, who successfully pleads his case and is allowed to reform the monster in a social experiment using drugs and therapy; the monster is given new clothes, plastic surgery, and even attends grade school briefly, before becoming a wartime production factory worker -- but all of this is just a prelude to the Monster being kidnapped and brainwashed by the Nazis and turned into a Gestapo SS enforcer! My mind boggles at the thought of Universal Pictures' Frankenstein's Monster ever taking such an original tangent. But the whole thing with the arch-evil villain reforming... how often did that happen in 1940s comics (or any other decade's, for that matter)?? As an odd ending to his career in comics, after the Comics Code Authority put the kibosh on the '50s horror-comics boom, artist/writer Dick Briefer found new work for a couple of years in the mid-50s drawing dozens of Jughead stories for Archie Comics, before moving on, more or less permanently, to the more lucrative (or at least more stable) world of advertising art for the rest of his life.
