  • 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.

If I told you you wouldn't believe me. Or think I was crazy. I admit it -- I'm an addict. But I guess I could be addicted to worse things.

BLUE MONDAY was the absolute standout as far as comedy goes. I take it you've already read that, though. If not you should do so immediately. Heck, it couldn't hurt to get the new collected editions even if you've already read the black and white singles, since the trades are in color.

I'm thinking of reading these again after the whole series is out. I want to make an MP3 soundtrack for it, after I go through and make a list of all the songs.

ARCHIE JUMBO COMICS DIGEST #276 - Reviewed it on my review thread.

SCARLET TRACES, Vol. 1 TP - The first 60 pages is a straightforward adaptation of H.G. Wells' novel THE WAR OF THE WORLDS, and the next 60 pages picks up a decade later after the failed Martian invasion, showing that the British Empire rebuilt its infrastructure with knowledge gleaned from reverse-engineered extraterrestrial technology. The advanced tech results in widespread automated factories putting a huge percentage of the population out of work, and there is a mystery with girls disappearing to be solved, which leads to the discovery of a secret conspiracy within the upper echelons of the government. The first volume ends as a British invasion fleet launches into space to conquer Mars itself. Very interesting, and I hope for further volumes to continue this fascinating story.

ARCHIE'S FUNHOUSE COMICS ANNUAL #24 - Most of the stories in here seem to feature Reggie, Dilton, or Moose in major roles (the new story by Dan Parent revolves around Reggie's attempt to avoid doing volunteer work to raise money for the school). The real jaw-dropper was seeing a Little Chuck story, though. There's a Craig Boldman/Rex Lindsey story in here titled "That Tears It" that was part of an ongoing series of stories by Boldman, in which the story involves a word which Jughead repeats several times, in an attempt to expand his vocabulary. He attempts to explain the concept of this week's word (in this particular instance it's more of an expression - "on a tear") to Moose, who figures heavily in this particular episode, and in so doing, outlines the basic concept of this ongoing series of stories for the reader. Because the major plot of this episode has Jughead explaining things to Moose, it's a bit of an anomaly in the series. Normally the vocabulary word or expression is mentioned a few times (and defined), but other that that the plot of the story doesn't revolve around the word chosen, and the inclusion of the word is more of a side bit to the main plot of the story. More typically, when Jughead uses the word it's a lot less intrusive in the story -- perhaps only a panel where Archie repeats the word quizzically, after which Jughead will say something like "It's my word of the week. I'm trying to expand my vocabulary" and then define the meaning of the word. It might seem like this would be a little forced in the story, but Boldman always chooses a new word which is somehow apropos (and funny at the moment when Jughead picks to interject it) to whatever the situation going on in the story is. (Hey, "apropos" might even have been one of the words!) The idea of Jughead just tossing an uncommon word into his conversation totally worked for me in these stories, because it fit in the context of a whole host of new eccentricities that Boldman was constantly having Jughead come up with. A collection of these Jughead stories (for a while, one of these shorts appeared in almost every issue of Jughead for a couple of years or so) called something like "Jughead's Vocabulary" or "Words to the Wise" wouldn't make a bad trade paperback or digital exclusive.

If ACP were anything like a normal comic book publisher, they would offer all the Boldman/Lindsey Jughead stories in a series of TP collections (or digital collections). Same goes for comics like Cheryl Blossom, Josie, and Sabrina, because they're harder to find as back issues. But ACP never does anything normal or logical like that. The basic thinking of ACP's reprint collections editor seems to be that no adult reader could possibly be interested in purchasing anything like that (never mind that a lot of kids would like it too). Yet when they do things like THE BEST OF ARCHIE COMICS, it turns into one of their best-selling TPs ever, prompting a whole series of further volumes. That's obviously because it's a little closer to what adults who have the money to spend on these collections want. Despite this, they've steadfastly avoided doing anything resembling complete chronological collections of stories by a particular writer/artist, or by character or by title. The only thing they've done that fits that description is THE MARRIED LIFE series of TPs. Oh, and that was also one of their best sellers. Can't find any clues there, though.

Betty Boop 2-4. For some reason I wasn't that into the first issue. Maybe it was just my mood when I read it. But I spead through these last 3 this weekend. The art for some reason reminds me of Kennel Block Blues. I loved the humor and old fashioned vocab. Anyone have any recs with similar type of humor? How do these compare to the old Betty Boop comics?

You could try Roger Langridge's Popeye from IDW. Nothing else remotely similar to BB in the comic book market that I'm aware of.

I have some of those. I'll give them a go. I had a feeling you would say Popeye because of the similar time period.
