  • 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.

I'm buying everything but the Sonic stuff.  That B&V variant by Allison Sohn (who is also the wife of Adam Hughes), is beautiful. Sad that it depicts Pop's going out of business, but I'm sure Betty will be able to rally the kids to save it. 


I also LOVE the Afterlife cover by Francavilla, but then, Josie is my favorite female in the Archieverse.  I'm really partial to non-Pussycat Josie, but this is better than nothing. 


Audrey Mok cover of Jughead is drop dead gorgeous too. 


Whatever you think of the reboots (I'm personally fine with them), I think we're getting some great art from them.

I like The Afterlife With Archie #10 where Betty & Veronica are killing Cheerleaders in the locker room. It's great.
Archie #11, my man Thomas Pitilli does another beautiful cover which I get. He drew that beautiful commission of Reggie looking in the mirror but he reflection is one of sadness, Because he is the black sheep of the group, I gave Thomas the idea to draw that. And that was first time he ever drawed Reggie. Veronica Fish's cover is nice too.
Betty & Veronica #2 has 3 covers that I like. Kevin Wada & Allison Sohn & Adam Hughes which I will preorder. All 3 Jughead covers are great. But my most favorite is Veronica Fish. Betty & Veronica Comics Double Digest #246 is good too.

Excited for the battle of the bands issue. I wish there were more music themed comics. Besides Jem and the Holograms and Josie and the Pussycats, I wonder if there are any others.

Four digests solicited, with only one of them (Jughead and Archie #22) indicating the lead story is new. Not good.  >:(

I miss the classic Archie artists. But at least Derek Charm's an improvement and a move in the right direction. Don't care for Veronica Fish's work at all.

After reading the solicitation, it almost seems like reading the story when it actually comes out is a mere formality. Such suspense. Right around the sentence where they said "she never takes off that giant burger head", I started thinking "I bet it turns out to be Sabrina"... and I was right. At least I didn't have to wait 2 months for that satisfaction. OR maybe it would be more satisfying if they didn't just tell you the plot ahead of time.

That doesn't necessarily ruin a story.  I watched every episode of Colombo even though I knew he was gonna catch the murderer.  It was just a question of how.

So your argument here would be the actual reason to read the comic now is to see whether Sabrina (A) just put on a costume supplied to her by the burger restaurant, but never takes off the giant burger head, or (B) she actually used witchcraft to change herself into a hamburger with a giant burger head? Not comparable to knowing that in every story that Sabrina appears, she's going to use magic somehow, but it's just a question of how. That thing with the costume is a little too specific, like someone telling you some twist of the plot in an episode of Colombo before you ever watched it. I'd say the point here is that now when you actually read the story, the minute the Burger Lady appears, you already know beforehand that it's Sabrina in the costume. Not quite the same thing.

More specifically, Sabrina as drawn by Derek Charm, as opposed to Sabrina as drawn by Erica Henderson. Erica has some talents, but they don't include drawing attractive looking people, female OR male. That's a real disadvantage for most comic books.

I wonder how Sabrina will be in Jughead #9, do the kids from RiverDale really know she's a witch? Or do think she just strange? I remember in old Jughead issue, I think it was #200. Jughead saw Sabrina at outside shopping at a food market & they didn't think the sold fruit. Creepy Stuff like bats etc. She was embarrassed but actually told him she was a witch. I don't think he really believed her.

I don't think they know.  This should be interesting!
