  • DeCarlo Rules: So let me see if I've got this right... The confusingly-titled Archie: The Married Life 10th Anniversary is NOT a sequel to any part of the 37-issue run of "The Married Life" in Life With Archie Magazine. But it IS a sequel (10 years on ) to ARCHIE #600 to 606, "Archie Marries".
    March 04, 2019, 02:00:25 pm
  • DeCarlo Rules: Ironically Dan Parent was not really involved with the LIFE WITH ARCHIE series at all although he did do ARCHIE #606, the epilogue to "Archie Marries". It's a little confusing now, since this new series is yet another parallel universe where Archie Andrews didn't die... or maybe two of them.

  • DeCarlo Rules: After Archie Meets Batman '66, I was wondering whether that was it for long-form classic Archie stories. So it's nice to see The Married Life again, even if it's only a 6-issue epilogue.

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.

I read this one. I got an email from TFAW awhile back canceling my orders for those issues. Boo.  :(

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.

BettyReggie

I didn't like the art from #6, issue #1 is great though.
