  • 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.
    August 27, 2018, 03:19:15 pm
  • 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.
    August 27, 2018, 03:09:15 pm
  • 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.

There are so many good Ramones covers. I don't know which one or ones to get.
I kind of like the one that mimics the first album.  They could have done a cover with the Archies band in women's stretch pants(jeans) and leather jackets, too.  That might have been cool.

I like that they took the time to color Betty's t-shirt as "blue heather" (or is it "heather blue"?) -- I'm not sure if you can see the detail in this image, but in a larger image of the same cover, you can see the two different grains of interwoven threads (one a little lighter, and one a little darker) that make up her t-shirt. I also like what they (Betty) did with the little vignette image to the left of Betty's name in the title. Did anyone else notice it? (-- and yes, Veronica gets to add her own graphitti commentary on her solo cover).

I don't think anyone's looking at the color of her shirt. Looks like they listened to your comments about the girls being drawn too flat chested by Fiona Staples.

I don't recall posting anything about how Fiona Staples drew B&V's chests, although I may have made a general comment that I don't find the way she drew B&V as particularly attractive or sexy. I just don't feel any connection with her style of artwork, which looks to me like some sort of fashion illustration (while ironically not being particularly fashionable or anything). It's slick but leaves me cold.

On the other hand, Adam Hughes' version of B&V looks positively subdued (for Adam Hughes) compared to the type of women he usually draws like Wonder Woman or Catwoman. Let's face it, they didn't hire the guy based on his reputation for writing incisive and witty teen comedies, they hired him because of his reputation for drawing sexy female characters.

Maybe you should leave an email or voicemail for Jonathan over at the Riverdale Podcast. This week while reviewing B&V #1 he was having some issues with the idea of B&V (being teenagers) being drawn in a way that he thinks seems too sexualized. He'd probably love to hear your perspective on this.

The cartoony style of artwork formerly associated with Archie Comics tends to disarm the overt sexyness of the drawings by making the characters look cute/innocent and appealing, and thus inoffensive (although in the past, Dan DeCarlo was known to push that envelope). When you remove the cartoony quality and switch to a more illustrative type of artwork, this is what you're left with -- it is what it is, and based on my familiarity with Adam Hughes' past work, I can assure you he is making a conscious effort to tone that aspect of his work down in B&V -- yet ironically, this is WHY he got hired for the job in the first place.

PS - They announced at SDCC 2016 that ReedPOP will be selling those #TEAMBETTY and #TEAM VERONICA t-shirts, along with a plain gray heather T sporting the new B&V logo.

I saw Ghostbusters today and loved it. It was warm, funny, just fun. My two little boys loved it too and thought Holtzmann (Kare McKinnon) was AWESOME.

It was a lazy day because of the heat. I slept late. We went out late. I returned 8 books in the library box out. I had out too many books to read. I had a coupon for KFC, free meal with purchase of soda. It was belly sinker of a meal. Then we went to the Garden Gourmet. They had chocolate Italian ices, we bought them. I love them.

I changed my mind I'm mailing Fernando the Blank Betty & Veronica #1 on Monday. It's my treat for going to physical therapy & staying on my diet.

You have to do it . It will make you enjoy it, But bring extra money. You won't be sure how bring so I would message Adam Hughes or his wife about getting a commission at NYCC. They both are my friends on Twitter. If I you should buy a comic frame from Amazon so you can keep the comic nice. I keep them in plastic & than put them in the frame so they stay nice.

I've done the poll worker thing before.  It's pretty fun if not tiring.  It was cool when i worked in my own neighborhood so as to meet people. The fifteen hours pay at minimum wage was just a bonus.   ;)
