  • DeCarlo Rules: It's crazy that ACP hasn't reprinted those 2 issues as a double-size one-shot. Or the lead story in a TP collection of vampire stories (including "Twilite" and others).

  • irishmoxie: That's crazy about those Betty and Veronica issues being worth so much. They're only about 6 years old. I'm pretty sure I have copies of them.

  • DeCarlo Rules: On a relatated note, the real FIRST Vampironica appeared in Larry Welz' underground comic Cherry Poptart #1 [link]. That can be had right now, CGCed at 9.4, at the Buy-It-Now price of $280 on ebay. Although the book had several subsequent printings, only the first printing ($2 cover price) contains the Vampironica story. Much, much scarcer than B&V #261 & 262, but then far fewer people seem to be aware of its existence. It may not be the same Vampironica as the one that appears in her own comic book from ACP, but then you can easily make the argument that neither is the Vampironica from B&V 261-262.

    November 03, 2018, 10:06:11 pm
  • DeCarlo Rules: Yes, I mentioned this a while back somewhere around the time Vampironica #1 was first solicted or shipped. I even mentioned it to Dan Parent and told him if he still had copies he should get them CGC'ed.
    November 03, 2018, 04:33:03 pm
  • rusty: Apparently Betty and Veronica #261 and 262 (1987 series) are popular now due to Vampironica.  Somebody actually purchased a copy of #261 for $299 on ebay recently.

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.
