  • 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.

  • 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.

What is to become of me and my collection?
« on: September 26, 2017, 08:34:37 PM »

Hi all!  Long time no see!  So, maybe you have (or haven't noticed) my absence for over half a year or so now.  There is a reason for this.  I have been dealing with problems in my family life, and problems with my future.  Here is the 411:


Myself:  I am doing rather well, actually.  I have made many advances in my education, and social life.  I have cut ties to people that are extreme in every sense of the word, and (even though I have been gaining more weight), I have been eating better!  Life has never been better!


My education:  I AM ALMOST DONE!  I am amazed at how far I have come in my life.  I am hoping to attend University in Japan in the coming years.


My employment:  As of right now, I am technically not employed.  I have held two jobs in the past that did not turn out so well.  As of right now, I sort of work for PD Staffing, and they send me wherever they need within a 50 mile radius of my home, but other than that, I don't have a job.  However, next summer I am going home to Alaska to do some mining work for $4600 for 2 weeks on, 2 weeks off.


My collection:  This is probably what you all came here to see.  My collection.  It hasn't really grown, or shrank.  I got a neighborhood kid interested in Archie, but that's about as far as its gone.  My problem is, that I plan on living in a different country every 2 years (or less), and cannot have much stuff.  Luckily for me, I am a datahoarder, so I have a digital copy of everything I physically own (yes, including most of my archies).  At a point, I hope to scan what I don't already have a digital copy of, and make a copy of it myself!  I am currently at 41TB of stuff, and climbing by 3TB a month!


Moving:  As of this time, I don't have any concrete plans of moving.  However, in 2019, I plan to move to Japan.  I have not decided where to live there, but I am sure I will be able to choose soon.


Travel:  GOOD NEWS!  I should be able to go on a service mission through ANY church to ANY of the places that were battered by Hurricane Irma, to help rebuild for the people that live there.  I hope to leave in December, but this can change.


That's about it.  Questions?  Thoughts on my life thus far?

Sounds like you've been pretty busy. I don't know how you plan to just up and move to Japan without a job or savings to start with, but I guess you must have some idea in mind. Good luck!

I guess if you can digitize your entire collection onto a couple of huge hard drives then "You CAN take it with you."  ;)

Probably leave them with my family as I travel the world.

Package them carefully, to keep them dry, & free of mildew, mold & insects.
