  • Tuxedo Mark: My review of "The Best of Buds", a B&V story from 2011 [link]
    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?

Brave Chef Brianna #1 - Cute food themed girlie comic. Boom is quickly becoming my favorite publisher. Hopefully it doesn't fall off the rails like Spacebattle Lunchtime.


Riverdale One Shot - I liked it. Better storytelling than the main series.

Riverdale One Shot.  I liked the stories but the art was lacking.  I didn't really like how washed out the colors looked.

FINK ANGEL: LEGACY - TP collecting 4 related story arcs from 2000 AD and JUDGE DREDD MEGAZINE.
ROM #7
REGGIE AND ME #3
- Still not liking it, so this is the last one for me.
GREEN HORNET REIGN OF DEMON #4 (of 4)
JEM & THE HOLOGRAMS ANNUAL 2017 - Rats. Only 8 pages by Gisele, and it's a framing device, not a complete story on its own. Not a good intro point for new readers.
SILVER SURFER #9
HELLBOY AND BPRD 1954 GHOST MOON #1
("#14 in a series") - I never was really a reader of the regular BPRD series, and only off-and-on for HELLBOY, but I really like the retro-series set in the past.
STREET TIGER #1 (of 4) - A grindhouse action movie type story in an interesting cartooning style.
DETECTIVE COMICS #952
WONDER WOMAN #18
NURSE HITOMI'S MONSTER INFIRMARY VOL 1
- Just trying out a few different manga series looking for a good comedy. I liked this. Will review it later on my review thread.

PLANET OF APES/GREEN LANTERN #2 (of 6)
STAR TREK WAYPOINT #4 (of 6)
ASTRO CITY #42                   
MICRONAUTS #10

ARCHIE'S FUNHOUSE DOUBLE DIGEST #25 - Yay for fairy tale month! A funny spin on Hansel & Gretel from Dan P starring Archie and Betty (but Jughead gets the best jokes). Standout reprint is the classic Jughead short "Dream Boy", but we have a good balance here between 1-page gags, and shorts featuring different characters(Archie, Jughead, Betty & Veronica, Reggie, Moose), which makes this about the most varied of all the digest titles.

MAD presents GOODNIGHT BATCAVE HC - I don't know the children's book being parodied here, but it's MAD and it's a Batman parody, so it's all good. Pretty gentle as satire goes, but I enjoyed it. The text isn't particularly skewering Batman, and it could almost have been published (with less comically-exaggerated artwork) as a straight Batman children's book.

THE SIX 3-STOOGES #1 (a.k.a. FOX LEGENDS SERIES #1 [May 1993]) - An interesting and well-done unauthorized biography of the 6 men who were once part of the comedy trio known as The Three Stooges. This was apparently a co-publishing project (first in a series of celebrity bio-comics) between Fantagraphics and an Australian publisher, Fox Comics. Written and drawn by a cartoonist named Ian Eddy (whose previous work I was completely unfamiliar with), and very capably so, in an underground comix-ish style, printed in black & white. This done-in-one bio didn't really tell me much that I didn't already know about the Stooges, but it was a nice concise summary of their careers, as a group and as individuals.

DRAGONS RIOTING VOL 1 - Just trying out a few different manga series looking for a good comedy. Only about halfway through this one, and haven't made up my mind about it yet.

Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys: The Big Lie #1 - Not your grandma's Nancy Drew. Not too much Nancy in this issue either. Another murder mystery story.
