  • Vegan Jughead: I got Sabrina digitally last week.  I think the print version is just late.  It's 31 pages!!!  Can't wait for the Archie drawn by Audrey Mok and the final Josie comic as well.  Wish that was continuing.

Just click on the link to the site in the first post of the thread (or in my signature in any of my posts), and the new review will be at the top of the front page of my blog. :)

  • 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.

Re: ARCHIE COMICS FOR APRIL 2017

The interesting thing is Riverdale was originally solicited as a one-shot a couple months ago, and now it's an ongoing series even though the show hasn't aired yet.

The RIVERDALE one-shot was just that... a one-shot (scheduled to ship 03-01-17 ...but we'll see...). That issue contains four short stories each focusing on a single character (and all written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa) which serve as prequels to the TV pilot episode.

Which was then followed by a solicitation for RIVERDALE (ONGOING) #1... which has since been cancelled. The ongoing series was also supposed to have been written by "Aguirre-Sacasa and the members of the show's writers' room, along with art by up-and-coming artist Alitha Martinez" according to the original solicitation.

So the one-shot #1 and the ongoing #1 are (or were) two different comics. Since they cancelled the ongoing #1 issue, it shouldn't create any confusion down the road as to which is the proper #1 issue (in effect, the one-shot #1 would have actually been like issue #0... but now we don't have to worry about that).

And on a side note, AFTERLIFE WITH ARCHIE #11 and 12 were both cancelled as well (along with SABRINA #7), so B&V #3 just may come out before those do. And when I say "cancelled", I mean that those issues will have to be re-solicited (just like B&V #3) before you'll see them published.
