  • Tuxedo Mark: My review of "The Best of Buds", a B&V story from 2011 [link]
    February 16, 2018, 09:50:56 PM
  • 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.
    February 16, 2018, 05:48:41 AM
  • 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.
    February 15, 2018, 12:11:39 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Dark Horse has only really done the 1940s (and early 1950s) ARCHIE and 2 volumes of JUGHEAD, and they haven't solicited a new volume in a couple of years. ACP could certainly start with any title (Archie's Girls B&V, or Archie's Pals 'n' Gals, for instance) besides those two.
    February 15, 2018, 12:08:18 AM
  • rusty: Are the rights to the older titles still tied up with Dark Horse maybe?
    February 14, 2018, 03:54:08 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Seems odd that they'd start off a line of chronological reprint volumes with titles other than the main ones. Whatever happened to the trade collecting the earliest issues of Archie's Girls Betty and Veronica?
    February 14, 2018, 03:49:04 AM

  • DeCarlo Rules: Coming in August: ARCHIE'S BIG BOOK VOL 4: Fairy Tales. While many of these stories have been much-reprinted in three earlier B&V trade collections, due to the page count this will be the largest collection of these stories so far (and the first time any of these stories is reprinted in standard comic book page size). The BIG BOOK trade collections must be doing well for ACP for them to reprint four of them in the space of a year, so I urge people to support these TPBs if you want to continue to see more of them down the road.

I'd say "YAY!" for a Sabrina 80-Page Giant, but I'm still not convinced any of those 80-Page Giants will actually see print, since the Reggie 80-Page Giant was already cancelled, and we still haven't seen any of the others previously solicited yet.

Nice to see the return of Agents B & V, though!

But RIVERDALE DIGEST #1 !?!  Oh, please... does that damn show have to taint every format of their publishing line? Ugh. Just seeing all the ads filling up the digests is disgusting enough.

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.

                                 ^ Reading the Shoutbox...  ;) ^

TV shows are really easy to write, if you only remember to start with the basic premise of "Hey, you know what would be cool? If everybody was having sex with everybody else !" And, of course, make sure you advertise the show heavily in all of your digests. Wouldn't want any of the 10 year olds to miss anything cool!
