  • DeCarlo Rules: It seems like they put extras on a disc because people expect them, or it helps drive sales, but more often than not, it seems like very little thought goes into the content. Of course there are some examples where the extras are exceptional, but usually that's not the case.

  • irishmoxie: I love digital movies and streaming. I usually get the Blu-ray Disc because I like to watch the extras the first time and then end up adding the digital code online or rip it and put it on the hard drive. Just much more convenient to stream it then search for the disc when I want to watch it.

  • DeCarlo Rules: On the other hand, maybe I should just bypass the Blu-Ray format altogether, buy a huge terabyte HD, and download everything. There's something to be said for that, in that you can get everything quicker and stacks of Blu-Ray cases aren't taking up space in your house, I guess.

  • DeCarlo Rules: This coming from a guy who still hasn't capitulated to the inevitable domination of Blu-Ray. It's getting to the point where I might have to relent, since I've seen some anime sets being released for the first time on Blu-Ray (no combo pak) with NO release of a DVD version.

  • DeCarlo Rules: I'll never get used to people not being able to wait a few days when they order stuff online. I guess maybe I could understand it IF it were something that there was no other way to see, but I assume you've already seen the episodes.  People who are that impatient usually don't even buy disc sets, they just buy it digitally or stream it.

  • DeCarlo Rules: The questions you ask about classic Archie (which is a cartoon on paper) are sort of "real-world logic" questions. A cartoon world, unlike the real world, creates its own rules and its own logic, nonsensical as that might be. Like Wile E. Coyote not being affected by gravity until he looks down and realizes he's run off the edge of the cliff.

I read each of books for 12 minutes
Betty & Veronica Comics Double Digest #235
B & V Jumbo Comics Digest #250
Betty & Veronica Jumbo Comics Digest #247
I finished Betty & Veronica Jumbo Comics Digest #233


Have you ever tried to figure out approximately how many pages (of classic Archie comics) you can read in 12 minutes? I realize other comics (including New Riverdale) take longer to read, but I seem to be able to breeze through a Jumbo Comics digest (skipping the ads and Little Archie) in say, somewhere around an hour or two, depending on whether I'm pausing to notice certain things about the writing or artwork.

I just like using bookmarks in the digests. So that's why I time my readings. I don't time my regular comics though. Sometimes though I try to see how many comics I can read in a hour.

BLACK JACK, VOL. 2 by Osamu Tezuka
THE THREE STOOGES: CURSE OF FRANKENSTOOGE (cover says #1, but indicia states that it's Vol. 1, #4) - There's an 8-page story, "Scaredy Stooge" (written by S.A. Check) with artwork by former Archie creator Bill Galvan in this one (there was a Bill Galvan story in the first issue, as well).


Found a stack of older Archie comics (variable condition, mostly "uncollectable") in the 50-cent boxes this week, and I'll be commenting on some of those over in my "Some reviews..." thread as I have the time. Here's a few that I've read so far. Let's start with a few of those Giant Size 48-Page Specials that they published a dozen or so of, back about 20 years ago. These are all mixtures of new stories and reprints (proportions of each vary with the specific issues).

REGGIE'S REVENGE #3 (1995) - This one's actually in decent enough condition to warrant checking it off my Want List. Now if I can just find #2 (same for SABRINA'S HOLIDAY SPECTACULAR) I'll have the complete set of three. Some minor discoloration on the mostly white background of the cover, but I can live with that. Nothing particularly notable about this one, and most of the stories have been reprinted again later, since I'd already read several of them.
BETTY AND VERONICA SUMMER FUN #3 (1996) - It's just too bad the cover had tears at the top and bottom of the spine and about 2 inches into the logo (no pieces missing, but writing on some of the ad page coupons and checklists). Not too obvious, looks OK at first glance. I'll be reviewing this one.
ARCHIE'S CHRISTMAS STOCKING #3 (1995) - I'd previously read most of the reprinted stories in this one, but there are a couple of key stories (one featuring Jingles, the other featuring Sugar Plum) that I just have to comment on (see my "Some reviews..." thread).

More comics I found in the 50-cent boxes at my LCS...

ARCHIE & FRIENDS #6, 10, & 12
BETTY & VERONICA SPECTACULAR #13 & 20

(I'm noticing that most issues of A&F and B&V Spec. have Dan Parent stories, so I always look out for those titles in particular. Those books seem to have been mostly his ongoing assignment in the '90s, along with VERONICA and SABRINA...)
BETTY & VERONICA #72, 74, 79, 101,106, 107, 217

I picked up a bunch of issues of VERONICA, and some issues of BETTY, too. I'll be reading those sometime later this week.

I did read my digital copy of B & V #2. It was worth the wait. It was strange when they were fighting in the boxing ring their measurements were not the same. Betty weighs 116 while Veronica is 120 pounds. Veronica is taller than Betty. And their fight at the park with Veronica selling alcohol is something is never see in a comic. And at the car wash Cheryl Blossom makes a appearance which is something I never thought I see. I would it give A. Plus I can't see Kevin being on Veronica's side . He is too sweet .

It's pretty weird to see a story where Cheryl Blossom just happily does whatever Veronica wants her to, even if it means washing cars in a bikini in 50-degree weather. It's the sort of thing that makes you question whether Adam Hughes had ever actually read an Archie comic book before getting the B&V assignment.

It's a little weird Cheryl & Veronica that now they seem be buddy buddy. The only time the ever seem to get along was in Life With Archie when Cheryl had breast cancer. Veronica seems to just be so nice & caring to her because she felt so bad because she was sick.
I also read these today

The coloring makes me think of Mr. Goodbar candy. Your mentioning "bits'n'pieces" then makes me think of Sugar Babies.   :)
