  • Tuxedo Mark: Picked up "Riverdale" on DVD. Ripped the first disc to my hard drive and am gonna start reviewing episode 1 tomorrow. :)

  • Vegan Jughead: Thanks DCR!  That's awesome news.
    Today at 06:11:20 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: You won't have to wait longer than next Wednesday, Vegan. The Best of Josie is on Diamond's confirmed shipping list for next week.
    Today at 02:42:59 PM
  • Vegan Jughead: Good point on the pricing.  The new Josie and the Pussycats trade is only $9.99 and I can't wait for it.  I can't imagine they're moving many digests at retail.  The hardcore geeks like us subscribe but I doubt our numbers are large.
    Today at 10:01:49 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: @Vegan - That investment capital helped pay for Adam Hughes, and printer's bill, plus they resurrected a few of their old cancelled solicits on trade paperbacks that the work had already been completed on.
    Today at 09:45:09 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: I'm going to take a wild guess and say that ARCHIE AND ME DIGEST must contain a new 20-page story. But why wouldn't they advertise that fact? It's baffling trying to guess what they're thinking.
    Today at 09:37:32 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: So Double Digests are 160 pages for $5.99, but ARCHIE AND ME DIGEST is 128 pages for $6.99? Yet somehow a 416-page trade paperback is priced at $9.99?? Or $12.99 for 104 pages of Adam Hughes reprints. I guess they must be using the old "dart-board pricing" method!
    Today at 09:28:34 AM
  • Vegan Jughead: Archie November 2017 solicitations: Digests are up to $5.99!  Annuals are $6.99 so I guess Jumbos will be $7.99?  No one is paying that.  Subscribe or don't bother.  [link]
    Today at 08:32:09 AM
  • Vegan Jughead: DCR and Downloader, remember they also got that investment capital last year.  I think it was for a few hundred thousand dollars.  I don't know how long that will last, but I'm sure they're using that.
    Today at 06:46:26 AM
  • BettyReggie: I saw the November 2017 Solicitations. Fiona Staples is doing a few covers. I can't wait to see what they look like though because they didn't show them yet.
    Today at 06:06:23 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: @The Downloader - What cash flow they have is coming not from the floppy titles, but from the digests and trade collections. They're just spewing out different one-shots and short-run series to see if they can find something that will last.
    Today at 01:20:05 AM
  • The Downloader: How can ACP continue to push out new titles, when they dont have the money to back it up?!
    August 16, 2017, 05:40:53 PM
  • Tuxedo Mark: Crap, I just remembered I forgot to pick up "Riverdale" today.
    August 16, 2017, 03:15:05 PM
  • BettyReggie: I asked Adam Hughes on twitter who is working on B&V #4 . He said Rachael Stott is working on it.

What does your username stand for?

Mine is pretty obvious. My all time favorite cartoon character is The Great Gazoo voiced by Harvey Korman from The Flintstones.

I loved the relationship between Betty & Reggie in Life With Archie. So I decided it has be BettyReggie. Those issues actually showed that Reggie had a heart.

My favorite female character is Betty. My favorite male character is Reggie. I love the idea of the two of them together, they would be good for each other. And my favorite Archie era was in the 1960s. So that's why I chose 60sBettyandReggie  :)

I could totally see 60's Betty and Reggie together. Modern reboot Betty and Reggie... not so much :)

Do you actually own anything physically, or is your entire collection of... uh, everything downloaded?

Betty would be good for anybody. Isn't it bad enough she's set her sights low enough to fall for Archie? Reggie may be better-looking, and a better athlete, but he's got 10 times the character flaws that Archie does. Archie's merely a dweeb, while Reggie is a genuine creep. Unfortunately, Betty's kind of a pushover (unlike Harper, she's just too darn sweet and forgiving for her own good) who would soon be getting the very short end of that relationship.

If Betty set her sights on Archie any lower, her mind should be screaming "terrain", "terrain", "terrain", before crashing.  :buck2:

During the 60's when the two of them would get together to plan how to separate Archie and Ronnie it was so obvious they should forget about A&V and get together instead.

But I am one of those hopeless romantics that likes to think that Betty can definitely change Reggie (don't laugh, don't roll your eyes) from a creep to prince charming, haha, oh boy! :uglystupid2:

You know something, I never spent a great deal of time trying to figure out the whole shipping thing. All of a sudden today something dawned on me that made me see where it's coming from (in relation to the Archie characters, anyway). I just realized in a flash of understanding that it's mostly female fans who comprise the Betty/Reggie shippers, and mostly male fans who comprise the the Jughead/Veronica shippers. Now to me, these two pairings as couples seem to have absolutely nothing in common, but it suddenly occurred to me that there's more to it than just some sort of perverseness of opposites attracting or wanting to see two characters together who "shouldn't", by all surface observations of their behavior, be together.

It's that the ladies like Betty and identify strongly with her, while they feel most strongly attracted TO Reggie among the male characters, for the most obvious reasons -- he's clearly supposed to be (despite the fact that the male characters on average are drawn more "cartoony" than the female characters) the most handsome of all the regular male cast members; he's athletic, confident, dresses well, always drives a nice car, always has spending money (despite not having to have a part-time job). In short, Reggie's the most obvious male type that women would be attracted to, despite his being a rat, a creep, a fink, and an all-around rotter. This, in spite the fact that they should know better because of the severe character flaws he displays in almost every single story (unless it's a Christmas story or something like that). It's pretty true to life that a lot of women would ignore those flaws in favor of his undeniable good looks and self-confidence, figuring that deep down, there's a good guy inside that just needs nurturing and the love of a good woman to be brought to the surface. And let's face it -- there really aren't any regular cast members that can compete with him. Jughead isn't drawn to be especially good-looking, and neither is Archie, and both of them have some very serious quirks, even if they're mostly well-meaning 'nice guys'. Dilton's too nerdy and short (and maybe Chuck is nerdy too, with his comics obsession), and Moose is as dumb as a rock, so what real competition does Reggie have?  They should have kept Adam Chisholm around. He was actually perfect for Betty -- a good looking guy who was sincere and always treated her right (in fact, just like Betty, he had no real flaws). The ideal couple, really (although some would just say 'boring', I'm sure).

The same goes for the Jughead/Veronica shippers -- those guys (mostly guys) identify themselves most strongly with Jughead among the regular male cast, and are most strongly attracted TO Veronica (over Betty). Since they identify with Jughead and find Veronica more desirable than Betty, they're sure that the surface bickering between the two represents nothing more than them both fighting an obvious (perhaps deep subconscious) attraction to each other. Having the character you're most attracted to pair up with the one you most identify with fulfills a secret longing to involve yourself in the story more deeply by having one of the characters as your own alter ego.

At least I'm pretty sure that's what Trula Twyst would have to say about it.
