  • DeCarlo Rules: @irishmoxie -- It's definitely complete. All six of the 1958-59 Sy Reit/Bob White original issues, plus the feature-length "Good Guys of the Galaxy" by Tom DeFalco & Fernando Ruiz from ARCHIE #655, and three 5-page digest shorts that guest-starred Cosmo -- and the complete first issue of the Ian Flynn/Tracy Yarley COSMO (2017) thrown in for good measure. It follows the same layout/format as the previous JUGHEAD'S TIME POLICE, even though that didn't carry the "Archie Comics Presents..." trade dress. Not a bad buy for $11.

  • DeCarlo Rules: ...Marvel's earlier JOHN CARTER, WARLORD OF MARS in there, so the DE Tarzan comics need to go in a different box, and SHEENA (also a recent DE title) and DC's RIMA THE JUNGLE GIRL will help fill up that box.
    June 11, 2018, 07:40:48 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Recently. DE's unauthorized LORD OF THE JUNGLE Tarzan adaptations (and its authorized THE GREATEST ADVENTURE) won't fit into my existing box of previous Tarzan comics from Gold Key, DC, and Dark Horse, so I have to start a new box. Logically these get filed with DE's unauthorized WARLORD OF MARS comics (including DEJAH THORIS) and their authorized JOHN CARTER, WARLORD OF MARS. But I also want to squeeze Marve;
    June 11, 2018, 07:38:48 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Interesting. I tend not to group titles by publisher at all, if the characters were not created as work-for-hire (meaning the publisher is legally considered the 'author' of the character). Do they belong to that publisher's "universe" (assuming it has one)? There are some publishers like Dynamite Entertainment where the vast majority of the titles they publish are licensed, and thus were "inherited" from other publishers. Therefore it makes more sense to me to group them together in boxes with similar characters. Flash Gordon, The Phantom, and Mandrake comics (regardless of who the actual publisher was) go together in the same box because they're all classic adventure heroes licensed from Hearst Entertainment (formerly King Features Syndicate). Pulp fiction heroes like The Shadow, Doc Savage, and The Spider (regardless of the fact that the latter did not originate with the same publisher as the first two) also get grouped together. Space considerations allowing, Tarzan (and other Edgar Rice Burroughs adaptations) might share the same box with Sheena and Rima, but NOT with Ka-Zar, because he's a Marvel Universe character.
    June 11, 2018, 07:16:22 PM
  • rusty: I do keep all Star Trek series together in their own section and all Star Wars books together.  I also keep all 2000AD titles together and manga books get their own section.  For titles that have switched publishers, I usually keep them all with the publisher that I identify them with the most.  Tarzan has been published by a variety of publishers, but I keep them with Dell/Gold Key.  Conan is starting to get a bit close with all the success Dark Horse has had, but I still identify Conan more with Marvel.
    June 11, 2018, 06:27:26 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Believe it or not, I even have a box labeled "Pseudo-manga" that contains comics published by American companies and created by American creators like Astro Boy & Racer X (Now Comics), Battle of the Planets (Gold Key & Top Cow/Image), Captain Harlock (Malibu), Godzilla (Dark Horse) and Ultraman. I just want to keep those separate from the boxes of real translated manga in floppy comic format.
    June 11, 2018, 03:34:17 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Well. the problem is when you get titles with licensed characters that aren't owned by the publisher. So if you collect Star Trek comics, you'd have different series published by Gold Key, Marvel, DC, and IDW (and I probably missed one in there). It doesn't make sense to me to put them in different boxes by publisher, but to each his own. Disney comics would be another example. There are even some instances where if I like a certain artist enough, I will put all his work regardless of publisher or characters into one box, like Paul Gulacy, Steve Rude, or Mike Allred (and file them chronologically from older to newer, rather than alphabetically). Those are examples where my interest in the creator far exceeds my relative interest in whatever characters are involved.
    June 11, 2018, 03:14:29 PM
  • rusty: That makes sense.  There are many ways that people can file books.  What I do is file by company or category and then alphabetically within each section.  My first category is Richie Rich then Archie, then other Harvey titles, then Disney, then other humor/kids books, then by company (unless it is a company where I don't have very many books from them.  Star Trek and Star Wars each get their own section as well.  I will probably revamp a bit when I do my next major sort/merge.  The biggest section by far for me is DC.
    June 11, 2018, 09:28:59 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: I don't even file my comics alphabetically. I file them according to how closely they're related to other titles, but it's all dependent on the number of issues I have of any given title, and what will fit into a single box. Fpr ACP comics I just put all the short-run series (whether an actual miniseries or just a not particularly successful title) into one box. Even though some of those short run series star Jughead, and I could as easily file those together with the main JUGHEAD title in another box. For longer running ACP titles, "girl" titles are sorted into different boxes than "boy" titles. Eventually when I have enough issues of BETTY (and BETTY AND ME and BETTY'S DIARY) they'll get their own box, and VERONICA will get her own box.

Just an FYI since it’s not one I read, but apparently BOOM! studios has lowered it on “Bee & Puppycat” — despite earlier solicits for #12-16, #11 is now the final issue …

JUGHEAD AND ARCHIE JUMBO COMICS #21 came in the mail today, and I read that tonight. One thing I've been doing is counting the pages of the new lead stories in the months since Fernando Ruiz announced that ACP would be limiting the new stories to 5 pages going forward (I began counting only after Fernando's final story had appeared), and I found that not to be the case, with more than a few 6 page stories, as is the case with the new lead story in this issue.


One thing I'm noticing is that apart from the final B&V stories of "The Many Loves of Archie Andrews", all of the new Dan Parent stories since then have been written by writers other than Dan himself. And with the last couple of months of solicitations having digests where the lead stories are NOT described as "NEW", that's planted a suspicion in my mind that the new lead stories may only hold out as long as the scripts which ACP had bought and paid for far ahead of time. They may already have ceased paying for new scripts from writers entirely, and are merely having Dan Parent work through a backlog of paid-for scrips that had been accumulating for some time. After those scripts run out, it may be all over for new classic Archie stories in the digests.

FBCD 2016 VIZ MEDIA ONE-PUNCH MAN/MY HERO ACADEMIA - Previewing two superhero series from the pages of Weekly Shonen Jump. The first stars a "superhero for fun" who looks very unimpressive - not much of a physique, bald-headed, only the simplest of facial features. His biggest problem is trying to avoid boredom, because his devastating power to defeat any foe with a single punch has him constantly seeking new challenges. The second is about a world where about 80% of the population has a "quirk" (specialized superpower), and our protagonist is a teenager trying to be accepted at UA Hero Academy, a superhero high school. He has near-unlimited power he can draw from crystals, but it's too powerful for him to handle at 100%, and he hasn't learned to modulate that power to smaller percentages yet. In this story he's got to pass a series of physical tests and he's in danger of being cut from the school before even starting. Both sort of interesting, but I liked One-Punch Man a lot better, because it's more like a tongue-in-cheek comedy, plus I preferred the art style to My Hero Academia, which seems to tread some of the same ground as a lot of X-Men spinoff titles featuring young mutants. I think I might order Volume 1 of the One-Punch Man series (it was recommended to me by someone else, as well).

Patsy Walker AKA HellCat #1 & #6

I couldn't even make it all the way through Patsy Walker #6. That was the most terrible example of using a fill-in artist (completely different style) that I've ever seen in a comic. Essentially the equivalent of having the artist of the newspaper strip CATHY (Cathy Guisewite) fill in on the artwork in an issue of BATGIRL or something.
