  • irishmoxie: That's crazy about those Betty and Veronica issues being worth so much. They're only about 6 years old. I'm pretty sure I have copies of them.
    November 04, 2018, 01:36:00 am
  • DeCarlo Rules: On a relatated note, the real FIRST Vampironica appeared in Larry Welz' underground comic Cherry Poptart #1 [link]. That can be had right now, CGCed at 9.4, at the Buy-It-Now price of $280 on ebay. Although the book had several subsequent printings, only the first printing ($2 cover price) contains the Vampironica story. Much, much scarcer than B&V #261 & 262, but then far fewer people seem to be aware of its existence. It may not be the same Vampironica as the one that appears in her own comic book from ACP, but then you can easily make the argument that neither is the Vampironica from B&V 261-262.

  • rusty: Crazy.  I obviously missed that back then.
    November 03, 2018, 10:06:11 pm
  • DeCarlo Rules: Yes, I mentioned this a while back somewhere around the time Vampironica #1 was first solicted or shipped. I even mentioned it to Dan Parent and told him if he still had copies he should get them CGC'ed.
    November 03, 2018, 04:33:03 pm
  • rusty: Apparently Betty and Veronica #261 and 262 (1987 series) are popular now due to Vampironica.  Somebody actually purchased a copy of #261 for $299 on ebay recently.

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.   ;)
