  • DeCarlo Rules: I thought the ad money was only a piece of the webcomics big picture, with the other pieces being commission work and print collections of past webcomics, and word-of-mouth that leads to paying assignments from established publishers. It seems like Gisele just has too much talent to stay out of the game for long, and if nothing else, minus the expenses of hosting and time spent creating webcomics, she ought to be able to make a living just doing covers (which pay better than interior pages), if nothing else.

This morning I finished reading Archie Comics Spectacular Block Party.
I'm gonna start reading Archie 1000 Page Comics Gala.


I hate that they repeat the same stories in different books. I started reading 1000 page comics Gala and there are 8 stories in a row that I had already read on Block Party:tickedoff:


I can't believe you're just noticing this for the first time. You know that the 1000 Page digests just contain straight chunks of pages (several stories in the exact same order) as the regular digest titles from 3 or 4 months earlier, right?  And the Spectaculars just reprint the stories from recent digest titles on better paper, grouped by some kind of theme (very loosely themed, I should say). At any rate, they cancelled the last Spectacular (High School Hijinks) that they solicited, so it looks like there will be no more of those.

I just shake my head at this. I just don't understand this at all with all the material they have you'd think they could pick different stories for what they are putting out. Do they not have a clue what material they are putting in there comics?


And then there are those stories (great stories) that just came out once and never again were they reprinted.

No, this isn't the first time I noticed this. I know they love to repeat stories over and over but it still makes me mad....I didn't know about HS Hijinks being cancelled. Is it the same one as Pep Rally, or is that another one?

That certainly seems the way it is.

It costs money to hire someone to curate these stories. ACP just wants to make a quick buck.

What they are going to end up getting is a lot of customers that finally get fed up with the crap they keep on pulling and then more sales will start going down. If the Digest sales start to sink badly ACP will be in even more trouble.

Well, you got me with that one. I hadn't even heard of any Spectacular called "Pep Rally", so I had to google that one for more information. Most of those turned out to be dead ends (like the Walmart.com listings) that didn't provide any information or even show a cover image.

No, I had to go all the way to a bookstore in Malaysia to find a listing for that with a little more info and a cover image, which indeed -- does turn out to be the same cover as "High School Hijinks". Unlike a lot of the other listings, this one actually identified the book correctly as being cancelled.

  • The Unbelievable Gwenpool #1
Saving Princeless book 5 #1 for last …

"0-day"?

Wow, I read a few pages into SPIDEY #4 and then just gave up. What a difference the art of Nick Bradshaw made on the first 3 issues of that book (which are slated to be reprinted in a one-shot deluxe Marvel Treasury Edition). Unless Bradshaw's just skipping an issue or two before coming back, I guess I'm done with it.

Here's what I read today:
REGGIE'S WISE GUY JOKES #13 (June 1970)
HENCHGIRL #6 (Things take an interesting turn in this issue.)
AW YEAH COMICS ACTION CAT AND ADVENTURE BUG #2
WALT DISNEY'S COMICS AND STORIES #730
THANOS: THE INFINITY FINALE (OGN) - (This being the third OGN by Jim Starlin in a trilogy. It occurs to me I may have missed the second one, so I'll have to look into reordering that.)
SILVER SURFER #3 (I just love what Dan Slott and Mike Allred have been doing with this character. Great stuff.)
HERCULES #6 (A title I was only slowly warming up to, this issue totally sold me on the revised concept. Absolutely zero action in this issue, but the characterization and dialogue held me riveted for the entire issue. A teaser on the last page leads me to believe this is the final under this title, to be replace by a new #1 called THE GODS OF WAR.)
MOON KNIGHT #1 (I haven't been a huge fan of Jeff Lemire's writing, so I almost skipped this, but I'm glad I read it now. I'll read at least a couple more issues now, as he kind of hooked me with the general concept here.)
BATMAN/TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES #5 (of 6)
JUPITER'S CIRCLE - Book 2 #5 (of 6)
ROUGH RIDERS #1

I have more to get to from this week's haul, but that's probably it for today. Other stuff I got today:
THE PHANTOM COMPLETE SUNDAYS VOL 3 HC
DONALD DUCK: GHOST OF THE GROTTO TP
DONALD DUCK: THE GOLDEN HELMET TP
BLACK BAT DOUBLE NOVEL #3
THE SHADOW DOUBLE NOVEL #105
MONSTER BASH #26
CAPTAIN AMERICA 70TH ANNIVERSARY MAGAZINE (Free)
DC REBIRTH PREVIEWS MAGAZINE (Free again)
WONDER WOMAN '77 SPECIAL #3
DOC SAVAGE: THE SPIDER'S WEB #5 (of 5)
BRUCE LEE: THE DRAGON RISES #1
THE THREE STOOGES: THE BOYS ARE BACK #1

I got the Pep Rally title from my library's online database. I just checked again and noticed that the cover image does indeed say High School Hijinks. Too bad it was cancelled.

that’s a hard question — it’s definitely a strange book, self-referential mocking of the superhero genre; and that was the stated intent (more or less — do you know anything about it already?) … I’d like it to succeed actually, but not sure if they’re going to pull it off …

I wouldn’t say the art made a real difference to me, but I don’t blame you for giving up — I thought the first issue showed a lot of potential, but with #2 it just seemed …  ::) aimless?  :-\ pointless?  :( I'll probably keep watching where it goes a while longer, but …  :P

Don't know anything about it or Marvel but the art looked cool.

Just as I gave up on the series. Boo. Maybe I'll have to pick it up again. Too bad they don't do digital issues. I guess I'll slog through the web comic.
