    February 16, 2018, 09:50:56 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: @irishmoxie -- If they are indeed reprinting those early B&V Spectaculars from the Archie Giant Series, I'd agree it's a good choice (although it makes me wonder why they'd bypass the Betty & Veronica Summer Fun issues, which would be even more desirable to have). The early Life With Archie issues are a good choice as well, and I'll be buying both of those collections. Archie at Riverdale High, one of the dullest titles, is more of a puzzling choice. I won't be buying that one.
    February 16, 2018, 05:48:41 AM
  • irishmoxie: I own all of B&V Spectacular and most of the later issues of Life with Archie but I would definitely get these collections as they are easier to read without worrying about tearing the pages of fragile comics. Digital would be even better for me.
    February 15, 2018, 04:27:51 PM
  • irishmoxie: I don't see that classic B&V Vol 1 from the 50s up for pre-order on Amazon anymore. So it looks like they've ditched that idea for now.
    February 15, 2018, 04:26:14 PM
  • irishmoxie: I think their idea was to go with the more "edgy" Classic Archie ie fantasy stories from Life with Archie. I haven't read many of the Archie at Riverdale High books but my impression was that they were the "issue" books focusing on a particular issue pertinent to teens like protesting school lunches or something.
    February 15, 2018, 04:19:01 PM
  • irishmoxie: I suspect they will start the Spectacular collection with the Dan Parent stuff because that is more distinguishable. Older B&V Spectacular stuff is very similar to regular B&V.
    February 15, 2018, 04:17:08 PM
  • rusty: Dark Horse could still have the rights, even if they are not using them.  Archie may be thinking that the Life With Archie and Archie at Riverdale High books wi be more marketable than the older comics.  If so, I would agree with that thinking.  Cosmo is an interesting choice for a collection, but maybe they are hoping to capitalize on the new series or have other plans.
    February 15, 2018, 08:28:49 AM
  • Vegan Jughead: They also have "Cosmo: The Complete Merry Martian" up for pre-order!  How many of these things are in the works? This could be cool, but as DeCarlo Rules says, it's some kind of weird titles they're starting with.
    February 15, 2018, 07:12:42 AM
  • Vegan Jughead: At least these don't say they'll be black and white!  It says they're  "presented in the new higher-end format of Archie Comics Presents".  That sounds promising if they execute it well, and, you know, actually produce and release the books.
    February 15, 2018, 07:11:06 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: I'm not really sure if the B&V Spectacular collection goes back to include the individual B&V Spec issues from the Archie Giant Series, or starts with #1 of the 1990s series, either.
    February 15, 2018, 12:11:39 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Dark Horse has only really done the 1940s (and early 1950s) ARCHIE and 2 volumes of JUGHEAD, and they haven't solicited a new volume in a couple of years. ACP could certainly start with any title (Archie's Girls B&V, or Archie's Pals 'n' Gals, for instance) besides those two.
    February 15, 2018, 12:08:18 AM
  • rusty: Are the rights to the older titles still tied up with Dark Horse maybe?
    February 14, 2018, 03:54:08 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Seems odd that they'd start off a line of chronological reprint volumes with titles other than the main ones. Whatever happened to the trade collecting the earliest issues of Archie's Girls Betty and Veronica?

I just read my digital copy of Archie #17. And there was lot of Jason Blossom in it. He's adorable. So is the last issue from Joe Eisma. I love his art. I love his work in Morning Glories.

I know.  I wish he wasn't leaving the Archie title, but at least he'll be doing the art for RIVERDALE

I just finished the new Archie (Mark Waid/Fiona Staples) trade paperback.  It certainly has a different feel, but I found it entertaining.  I also picked up the new Jughead trade from the library and have to say it was better. It was a lot more fun, with all sorts of fantasy sequences interweaving with the story.  'Slackbeard' was especially inspired.

Haven't posted on this thread in a couple of weeks, but I've been busy reading.

Last week:
MICKEY MOUSE #326
DEADMAN DARK MANSION OF FORBIDDEN LOVE #3 (of 3)
DETECTIVE COMICS #950
WONDER WOMAN #16
DOLLFACE #2
GREEN HORNET: REIGN OF THE DEMON #3 (of 4)
JOHN CARTER: THE END #1
WILL EISNER'S THE SPIRIT: THE CORPSE MAKERS #1 (of 5)
JONESY #10
MOONSHINE #5
SAVAGE DRAGON #220
EMPOWERED & THE SOLDIER OF LOVE #1 (of 3)

DEAD@17: BLOOD OF SAINTS TP
DEAD@17: REVOLUTION TP
DEAD@17: THE 13TH BROTHER TP
DEAD@17: AFTERBIRTH TP
DEAD@17: THE WITCH QUEEN TP
DEAD@17: THE BLASPHEMY THRONE TP

This week:
PATSY WALKER AKA HELLCAT #15
BATMAN TMNT ADVENTURES #4 (of 6)
BATWOMAN: REBIRTH #1
CAVE CARSON HAS A CYBERNETIC EYE #5
THE WILD STORM #1
KILL OR BE KILLED #6
ROM ANNUAL #1 (2017)
THE FOREVER WAR #1 (adapted from the 1974 Joe Haldeman Nebula & Hugo-winning novel)
SLAM #1-3 (Girlie comic about roller girls. It was okay, but I don't think it interested me enough to continue.)

Junji Ito's DISSOLVING CLASSROOM TP - Great collection of short weird horror tales linked by 2 reoccurring characters, a brother and sister.

Junji Ito's FRAGMENTS OF HORROR HC - Another collection of short horror stories, no connections between these.

Junji Ito's TOMIE HC  - 700 pages, but a real page-turner. I read it in 2 days. Weird, surreal, grotesque, disturbing, fascinating. Ito's horror manga is different than any kind of horror I've ever read.

SCOOTER GIRL TP - Love the style and the setting, but I have mixed feelings about it because I hate the core idea of the story.

BETTY AND VERONICA DOUBLE DIGEST #251  - Never thought I'd see Bridgett again in a new story. It was funny, though.

WORLD OF ARCHIE WINTER ANNUAL #66  - Dan Parent's new 5-pager is a funny Reggie & Betty story.

Would I like Dead@17?


I liked the art in Slam but the story was hard to follow with so many characters. Maybe it would make more sense if I read them back to back instead of a month apart.


I found some random Scooter Girl B&W issues in the 25cent bin once. Liked the art, not the story. Maybe I would like it better in color. Like Blue Monday.


You're back to reading Jonesy? I thought you gave up on the series.


Let me know if Patsy Walker ever goes back to the girlie story it was for the first few issues of the comic.


I might try some of those Ito comics. I'm slowly getting into horror. But I like more ghost than gore.


Did you check out the Jem Annual? It has Gisele art in it.

I read some of favorites on my phone
Archie #11 & #12 the ones with art from Thomas Pitilli 💝
Archie #17-which had a ton of Jason Blossom. He's adorable
Jughead #7 & #8.I think those were best issues of the new Jughead title.
Betty & Veronica #2, I wanted to check up. I haven't read new reboot of B & V in a while.
