  • 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.

I was underwhelmed by the conclusion of Plutona. It made me want to be reading Paper Girls instead.

Yeah, that one was a loaner. It seemed sort of promising at the beginning, but all it really amounted to was a heapin' helpin' of teen angst.

I was almost tempted to read Paper Girls. I love Cliff Chiang's artwork. I just don't understand Brian K. Vaughn's writing though. It's impenetrable to me.

You would like it if you like open ended mysterious stories that almost make you come up with your own theories about what's going on i.e. The tv show Lost

Been along time since I've updated this so there's a bunch. Favorites in bold.

Plutona 1-4 (reread) and 5


Jem #16 (need to find some time to re-read the whole series again since this is the end of Sophie Campbell's run. Really looking forward to Jen Bartel's run. She's one of my all time favs.)

B&V Friends #249 (really enjoyed the beanie babies story; I liked the Josie stories especially "Head Count" even though I'd read them before. Also liked the new Cheryl monkey story and Cheryl story "Spaced Out" which I'd also read before.)
B&V Friends #248 - nothing particularly memorable


Life with Kevin #1 -  :smitten: More please. This bridges the gap between classic Archie and 21st century Archie.


Oddly Normal Vol. 1, 2, (reread) and 3 (read) - reminds me a lot of Sabrina and somewhat of Harry Potter. His background characters are very creative. It's one of those rare "kids" comics that also appears to adults. It doesn't talk down to kids.


Penny Dora Vol 1 - Good like Oddly Normal. I wonder if they are continuing this.


Disney Princess - reread 1-4. These are cute but I'm not in love with the format. It needs to be in a flip book in landscape format and it would be nice if they superimposed which characters/movie the strip is supposed to be. It's a bit jarring to switch to a different character every row or sometimes every third row.


Death Follows - Cullen Bunn can do no wrong. His comics are so novelistic. For fans of spooky stories. IF you like Harrow County, you'll love this.


Jughead 7 and 9- Love these simple classic Archie stories (not a big fan of the fantasy/dream elements previously). Especially love the Jughead artwork. They should've done this from the beginning.


Digital exclusives Betty and Veronica Lifeguard on Duty and Just Keep Swimming


Finished Bee and Puppycat up to issue 11. Sad to see it go.


Blood Feud issue 1 - Another Cullen Bunn farm mystery/countryside horror, whatever this genre is. I like it so far.


The Dark and Bloody issue 1


Mae #1 and #2 - interesting...great animation like artwork but I don't quite get the story.


Goldie Vance #3


Jonesy #4


Shrek #1 - just ok


Puss in Boots #1, 2 - just ok


Marceline Gone Adrift - I'm not super familiar with Adventure Time but since I liked Bee and Puppycat I thought I'd give it a go.


Remind Vol 1 - really good. Fantasy animal story.


Space Battle Lunchtime #2 - Not as good as #1 but I'll keep reading.


Blankets - Did not like, did not finish.


Essex County - same


Ghoul Scouts #1 - it was ok.


Lumberjanes/Gotham Academy crossover - assumes you are very familiar with the Gotham characters which I'm not. Not as great as I was imagining it would be.


Jade Street Protection Services #1 - Left the void that Zodiac Starforce left. For fans of magical girl (Sailor Moon) stories.


She Wolf #1 - Another big disappointment. Very, very weird and not spooky at all.


Ultracat #1 - Cute.


Gray Horses - just bad.


Nutmeg Vol 1, 2, issues 7-9 - Great art but plot is not that engaging despite being a Mean Girls/Jawbreaker mashup.


My Faith in Frankie #1 - bad. It's amazing that a few short years ago comics like these were all girls had to read.


Rowan's Ruin #1-4 - reminded me of the Lois Duncan books I read in the 90s.


Tinker #1 (reread) and #2 - another superhero comic disguised as a girlie comic.  >:(


Action Lab Dog of Wonder #2 - I'm a sucker for animal stories. I wish they made more of these.


All the Hilda books (i.e. Hildafolk, Hilda and the Black Hound) - Love, love, love these. All ages books that adults can enjoy. If you like magical animals, light fantasy, the woods, camping.


Lots of graphic novels from the Minx line for girls that was published back in 2007-2008. Nothing too impressive. I read The New York Four, The New York Five, Burnout, Token.

BEAUTIFUL STORIES FOR UGLY CHILDREN Volume 9: "By the Light of the Screaming Moon" (Piranha Press/DC, April 1990) - Sounds like a graphic novel, but it's actually in the floppy comic format, a short story told in blocks of text with accompanying illustrations on every page, or across a two-page spread, in black and white. This issue tells the story of two sibling teenagers about to attend their junior prom. They're actually lemmings, though, and the realities of their existence come crashing in on them when their parents reveal to them on prom night that the lemming community has reached a peak population period, and that lemming instinct dictates that come tomorrow, the entire population of the town will leap to their deaths from the cliffs overlooking the ocean.

Extremely experimental for the time (and even now), this series ran for 30 issues (each of which featured a standalone story), written by Dave Louapre and illustrated by Dan Sweetman. You can get an idea of the tone of the series simply by looking at the titles of the stories:

A Cotton Candy Autopsy
The Deadjohnson's Big Incredible Day
Diary of a Depressed Tap Dancer
The Black Balloon (A Happy Story)
The Crypt of the Magi
Happy Birthday to Hell
Ricky the Doughnut Boy
Die Rainbow Die: A Story of Hope
By the Light of the Screaming Moon
Where the Tarantulas Play
The Daffodils of Plague Town
Beneath the Useless Universe
A Cotton Candy Autopsy II: Bingo and Addy's Big Escape
Dangerous Prayers
The Pagan Tourist
The Santas of Demolition Street
A Conspiracy of Sweaters
The Neutered Beast
Nice Girls Don't Massacre Ants
Arnold: Confessions of a Blood Junkie
Dances With Cows
Psychotronic Virgin
Tiny, Slimy, Writhing Thing
I Am Paul's Dog
Legion of Ogs
Dead Like Me
The No-Wax Killing Floor
The Guilty Orphan
Gravity Sucks
The Dream Is Dead - Gone, Shot Off, All Squashed Flat

I pick these up whenever I find them in the 50c or $1 boxes.
