  • DeCarlo Rules: It seems like they put extras on a disc because people expect them, or it helps drive sales, but more often than not, it seems like very little thought goes into the content. Of course there are some examples where the extras are exceptional, but usually that's not the case.

  • irishmoxie: I love digital movies and streaming. I usually get the Blu-ray Disc because I like to watch the extras the first time and then end up adding the digital code online or rip it and put it on the hard drive. Just much more convenient to stream it then search for the disc when I want to watch it.

  • DeCarlo Rules: On the other hand, maybe I should just bypass the Blu-Ray format altogether, buy a huge terabyte HD, and download everything. There's something to be said for that, in that you can get everything quicker and stacks of Blu-Ray cases aren't taking up space in your house, I guess.

  • DeCarlo Rules: This coming from a guy who still hasn't capitulated to the inevitable domination of Blu-Ray. It's getting to the point where I might have to relent, since I've seen some anime sets being released for the first time on Blu-Ray (no combo pak) with NO release of a DVD version.
    August 27, 2018, 03:09:15 pm
  • DeCarlo Rules: I'll never get used to people not being able to wait a few days when they order stuff online. I guess maybe I could understand it IF it were something that there was no other way to see, but I assume you've already seen the episodes.  People who are that impatient usually don't even buy disc sets, they just buy it digitally or stream it.

    August 24, 2018, 05:37:39 pm
  • DeCarlo Rules: The questions you ask about classic Archie (which is a cartoon on paper) are sort of "real-world logic" questions. A cartoon world, unlike the real world, creates its own rules and its own logic, nonsensical as that might be. Like Wile E. Coyote not being affected by gravity until he looks down and realizes he's run off the edge of the cliff.

  • Tuxedo Mark: With New Riverdale, things kinda make more sense, overall, I guess. With Classic Archie (even new Classic Archie), I find myself often asking "Why is this even an issue?" or "Why would the teen characters even care about this?" With Riverdale, it's absolutely insane bonkers, but everyone involved is in on the joke, so it's fun to just sit back, shut off my brain, and enjoy. :)

It's comedic. An instance of actual comedy in the reboot!


Unless it was a sloppy joe made with some really bad meat, or just a terrible home-made recipe or something, I assume the joke is that Veronica's palate is so accustomed to upper-crust cuisine that she finds "regular people food" totally inedible. I know I've seen the occasional instance of a vomiting joke in a classic Archie story or two, probably only modern ones though. Don't think I recall any instances of Veronica not being able to stomach the same kind of foods the other kids eat, though. She spends so much time at Pop Tate's, even if she would vastly prefer Gaston's cooking.

The joke would be her first exposure to Ms Beazley's cooking ... Everyone else has (presumably) built up a resistance ;)

Jughead 006 - Absolute garbage from start to finish.

Sabrina 005 - Really good, especially the ending.

Archie 008 - Entertaining, good read.
The selected media item is not currently available.

I don't know that Sabrina belongs anywhere on that list or that's there's anything particularly girlie about it, beyond the fact that the title character is female (but you left a lot of those books off the list). Point taken on the others.

That was a constant source of gags for Bob Montana's newspaper strip -- somewhat less so for classic Archie comic books.

I read Archie #8- Fish cover. There was no Reggie in this issue. And Betty was just on one page. Who were the people playing cards with Archie's parents? Were they supposed to be Raj or Sayid's Mother & Father. You would think  it's Raj's parents because why would  Archie's parents want to hang with them now their son is dating Betty.And why did Betty fix his car again, I think she would still hate Archie for dumping her to be with Veronica.

Maybe now that she's dating Sayid, she's happy and doesn't need to be mad at Archie.

I haven't read Sabrina yet.  I have to go back and read the last few to get caught back up.  I've forgotten a lot of it.


I loved Archie. 


I didn't think Jughead was absolute garbage.  It reminded me more of a Man from R.I.V.E.R.D.A.L.E story with the fast pace.  Maybe not the best issue, but I'll keep on with the series to see what happens now that they've gotten Stanger out of the way and are heading into what looks like more typical Archie territory on a summer vacation.  It does seem odd to me that Chip Zdarsky is staying on for the next two issues.  Seems like this would have been a good jumping off point.

I read The Chilling Adventure of Sabrina #5 and it was outstanding. I'd definitely give it a solid 8.5/10.

Reading through a bunch of different issues from Wednesday, notably Jughead 6 .. I'd say the arc ended on a high note at least, though all things considered that wasn't difficult ...
