    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?

Not sure if it counts, but I picked up the July Previews World.  I'm really excited for the DC Relaunch, and the new Post Apoc Scooby Do?!

I read my digital copy of Jughead #5. It finally worked from the Archie app. It was alright. I think the other 4 were better though. I don't like it when they change into super heros.
The Superhero parodies are always a bit inane, but at least this one is framed as a definite dream sequence (and and as superhero stories go it wasn’t bad, so bonus)

Wayward 14 and 15 - end of this arc. Also looks like they are totally changing the direction of the series. Not to be too spoilery.

Just finished Archie vol. 1 recently.  I have to say that I liked it more than I thought I would.  Once I got caught up in the story, not having it drawn in the house Archie style didn't bother me as much.  Having Archie talk to the reader is an effective way to draw you in to the story.  I really like Jughead in this version, too, especially after Veronica Fish started drawing the comic.  She got him to look more indifferent and less like he's angry at the world.  I may have to track down issue 7 when it comes out.  The Jughead preview was fun, too.  "You can...MAKE food?" and "I have the power of...infinite burgers!" both had me laughing.  The art is a bit odd, but suits the quirkiness of the story itself.  I'll have to look for the Jughead trade when it comes out.

I’ve been reading PS238 which is hilarious and a great story. As well as the usual weekly Adventures of Supergirl & Injustice.
 
If course tomorrow is Wednesday, so all the new issue … Archie #7, Henchgirl #6, and Spider-women Alpha … among others …
