  • 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.
    November 04, 2018, 01:36:00 am
  • 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.

  • rusty: Crazy.  I obviously missed that back then.
    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.

Yesterday I read CARTOON NETWORK PRESENTS #3 (Wacky Races), 17 (Toonami), 20 (Cartoon All-Stars), 21 (Toonami), 22 (Cartoon All-Stars), and THE FLINTSTONES AND THE JETSONS #19, all published around 1998-1999 by DC.

These were published at a time when Cartoon Network's programming was mostly comprised of reruns of old cartoons, and DC had just taken over the license to publish Hanna-Barbera comic books from Archie Comics. In fact, CARTOON NETWORK PRESENTS was sort of a continuation of the same sort of content that had been in ACP's licensed HANNA-BARBERA PRESENTS (#1-8, 1995-1996), and featured a lot of the same characters, like Wacky Racers, Yogi Bear, Top Cat, Quick Draw McGraw, Magilla Gorilla, Secret Squirrel and Atom Ant. Cartoon Network was just beginning to produce new shows, a few of which were featured in CARTOON NETWORK PRESENTS, like Dexter's Laboratory (#1) and it's companion cartoon Dial M For Monkey (#4) and Space Ghost Coast To Coast (#2), but most of these issues featured old Hanna-Barbera cartoon characters. One major exception was the new CN show Cow and Chicken, which appeared in issues #6, 10, 14 and 19. Toonami (which appeared in issues #5, 9, 13, 17 and 21) was originally an afternoon programming block of H-B adventure cartoons (Herculoids, Birdman, Galaxy Trio, Shazzan, Dynomutt & the Blue Falcon, etc.) hosted in framing segments by Space Ghost's old foe Moltar. Later the format switched to mostly a mix of anime shows like Dragonball Z and DC character cartoons like Batman, and Moltar was dropped as a host in favor of the robotic CGI host Tom.

#24 was the last issue of Cartoon Network Presents, as new programming on Cartoon Network continued to increase. DEXTER'S LABORATORY was quickly spun off into it's own title after the early issues, and Cartoon Network Presents was cancelled in favor of a similar title, CARTOON NETWORK STARRING (1999), which premiered with THE POWERPUFF GIRLS in issue #1 (also in #5), before they too got their own ongoing title. From then on Cartoon Network Starring featured Cow and Chicken (continuing from where it left off in Cartoon Network Presents #19) in issues #3, 7, 10, 13, and 16, rotating with Space Ghost Coast To Coast (previously featured in Cartoon Network Presents #2) in issues #4, 9, 12, 15 and 18,  and Johnny Bravo in issues #2, 6, 8, 11, 14 and 17.

Other anthology titles based on the network like CARTOON NETWORK BLOCK PARTY (which featured The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy, Codename: Kids Next Door, Courage the Cowardly Dog, Ed Edd & Eddy, Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi, Foster's Imaginary Friends, and Camp Lazlo, in addition to continuing Dexter's Laboratory, Powerpuff Girls, Johnny Bravo, and Cow and Chicken, and ran 59 issues), and CARTOON NETWORK ACTION PACK (featuring Ben 10/Alien Force/Ultimate Alien, The Secret Saturdays, Samurai Jack, and Generator Rex, among others, for 67 issues) followed at DC.

While I missed the old H-B cartoons featured in Cartoon Network Presents when it was cancelled, DC did continue to publish THE FLINTSTONES AND THE JETSONS for 21 issues from 1997-1999 (picking up where Archie Comics' previous FLINTSTONES series of 22 issues, 1995-1997, and THE JETSONS, 17 issues from 1995-1997 had left off). These were interesting because a few of the issues featured crossover stories between the modern stone age family and the family of the future. Archie Comics had also published SCOOBY-DOO for 21 issues from 1995-1997, and DC picked up with a new SCOOBY-DOO #1 in 1997, and that series has continued running until this day (155 issues and still going strong, even spinning off the companion title SCOOBY-DOO TEAM-UP in 2014, which is also still going after 16 issues).

DEXTER'S LABORATORY, THE POWERPUFF GIRLS, BEN 10, and SAMURAI JACK all eventually appeared in DC Comics, but they eventually lost the CN license (with the exception of SCOOBY-DOO, which they kept) to IDW in 2013, which continues to publish irregular miniseries featuring those CN properties and others. Recently they launched a new POWERPUFF GIRLS comic to tie in with the revived/revamped new PPG animated series on CN.

ARCHIE'S FUNHOUSE SUMMER ANNUAL #21 - In addition to the usual 11-page Little Archie section this issue had a long 22-page Little Archie story reprinted from one of the last issues of ARCHIE & FRIENDS, and another 5-page lead (possibly new, but I'm not convinced) Little Archie story by Bob Bolling. Besides which, I counted several stories in this digest that I'd read recently elsewhere (can't recall where). That made it a pretty lackluster Summer Annual for me, with entirely too much Little Archie content. The only other thing I noticed that was noteworthy were a number of stories where Dilton plays a major part (more than is average for a digest this size) which is a good thing AFAIC, and (I think) 3 or 4 stories in which Archie seems interested in Midge (or attempts to flirt) briefly, in one fashion or another, which again seems like a higher percentage than random.

I read Betty & Veronica #1 - the blank variant. It's actually the one I'm mailing to Gabbie Gross so she can draw Betty & Reggie on it.

I just got caught up with the last 9-10 months of Constantine, DC Comics Bombshells, Earth 2 Society and Harley Quinn over the last couple of days.  The Justice League  titles, Wonder Woman, Starfire and Legends of Tomorrow are next.

What did you think of Betty and Veronica #1?

Quotable quote of the issue:
Quote
"I know it's unrealistic to want it, but I want to keep our Riverdale the way it's always been. I want it to grow, but I don't want it to CHANGE. Does that make sense?"

I'd have voted for two pin-up/fashion pages of B&V in their bikinis instead of two small pictures of Betty reading the script. In fact, I think I could have given the script a pass altogether, for 24 pages of B&V in their bikinis. AH should just go with what works for him.

Is Veronica this big of a putz in the regular ARCHIE series?

ONE-PUNCH MAN VOL. 4, 5, 6, & 7 - One of the most enjoyable manga series I've read in a while. I intend to pick this up from now on as new volumes come out.
