  • DeCarlo Rules: So let me see if I've got this right... The confusingly-titled Archie: The Married Life 10th Anniversary is NOT a sequel to any part of the 37-issue run of "The Married Life" in Life With Archie Magazine. But it IS a sequel (10 years on ) to ARCHIE #600 to 606, "Archie Marries".
    March 04, 2019, 02:00:25 pm
  • DeCarlo Rules: Ironically Dan Parent was not really involved with the LIFE WITH ARCHIE series at all although he did do ARCHIE #606, the epilogue to "Archie Marries". It's a little confusing now, since this new series is yet another parallel universe where Archie Andrews didn't die... or maybe two of them.

  • DeCarlo Rules: After Archie Meets Batman '66, I was wondering whether that was it for long-form classic Archie stories. So it's nice to see The Married Life again, even if it's only a 6-issue epilogue.

Anybody ever order any Archie shirts off Threadless? I never got mine.

irishmoxie

They're really pushing Cheryl. Hopefully she makes more than just a mini appearance. I wonder if she will get her own series. Seems like everyone is.

DeCarlo Rules was right about Adam Hughes pushing back Betty and Veronica #2 infinitely it seems. I don't understand the archaic comic system. They make you order 3 months in advance and then delay delay delay. It seems so out of touch with the modern consumer. I used to buy tons of novels when I had more time to read and they were never delayed like comics are. Comics are seated almost as much as music albums.

BettyReggie

I always think it's just something to look forward to. When Reggie & Me #1 comes out I definitely buy the digital copy too. But I just hope the comic lasts long enough to have a graphic novel after 6 issues. I saw something that Fernando Ruiz said on Facebook. That a Reggie book wouldn't sell. I think now maybe it would because us archie fans want something new to read.

steveinthecity

Regarding Reggie's 80-page Giant Comic #1, I didn't quite catch on from the original link JoninIowaCity posted, but the Reggie comic is reprint material(not sure about the cover).

I asked in the shoutbox what prompted a return to the "classic" art, and while not exactly a return as it's reprint material, ACP apparently thinks there's still a market for this beyond the digest format.  If successful maybe they'd consider doing other "Giant" editions on even a quarterly basis featuring other characters.  It'll be interesting to watch the sales of this issue.

Now THERE's a Reggie comic that's going on my pull list. (Hopefully the thing will actually get published. I was surprised to see the return of classic Archie stories to the floppy comic format.)

EDIT:  Now that I look more closely at that Reggie's 80-page Giant Comic #1 cover, I'm wondering if this isn't the print version (compacted to one-shot size) of the formerly Digital-Exclusive 4-issues miniseries Reggie and Me, released digitally only in 2012. (See https://library.comicsplusapp.com/product.php?product_id=com.iversecomics.archie.comics.reggie.me.one.09092012 if you have no idea what I'm talking about.)

I say that because Bill Galvan drew the cover, and he also drew the DE miniseries, and because Reggie's dog Runty (rarely seen elsewhere since that miniseries) is also on the cover. So even though the solicitation credits say "various" for writer and artist, I think it should probably more accurately say "Writer: Bill Golliher;  Artist: Bill Galvan".

Plus, it just kind of makes sense that this is the sort of thing ACP would pull out of the drawer (it was already paid-for, four years ago) to cash in on the publicity attending the launch of a New Riverdale Reggie series. So in a sense, if you didn't read it as a digital exclusive comic already, then it's "NEW classic Archie" to you. I still plan on buying it, even though I read the first 3 issues of the miniseries for free on the old Archie Digital app.




I had to laugh when I saw the ARCHIE and B&V cover art books. I predicted it a while back, when discussing the pros and cons of variant covers with @irishmoxie. Presumably these are available in the digital format as well, so now it really seems wasteful to spend another $4 on a copy of a comic whose story you already own (but with a different cover). Cost to buy 1 copy of all 25 cover variants of B&V #1 = $100, cost to buy 1 copy of Betty & Veronica: New Riverdale Cover Book #1 = $5 (plus you get all the variant covers to B&V issues #2 and 3, as well). I actually just thought they'd throw the variant cover art for the respective issues into the TPB collections.

PTF

Tom DeFalco writing has me all in on Reggie and Me. One of my favorite comics growing up was Spider-Girl and, to me, he has written the best Archie story ever with Man from R.I.V.E.R.D.A.L.E. The man is just amazing. :)

I would normally tend to give the benefit of the doubt to a Tom DeFalco-written comic, but I'd sure like to see what the artwork looks like first. I have never heard of Sandy Jarrell -- what comics has he worked on previously? Anyone know?

irishmoxie

I think the Reggie 80 pager is essentially an ad to get people to buy th new Reggie as he's kind of a character most people haven't heard of. While almost everyone knows who the core 4 are.

The variant covers are reprinted in the back of each issue but tiny size. Yes the covers book is nice to look at but you can't display it like a variant cover. Commissions are interesting but with the use of markets to color them they don't look polished to me. I don't like the black and white sketches either. They just look rough to me. Though digital commissions is something I'm getting into now.

I'm pretty sure it's the 2012 REGGIE AND ME digital exclusive miniseries, all in one 80-page comic.

Why can't you display it? You can buy as many copies as you want, and cut out the pages of whatever cover art you want to display and put it in a frame. Presuming you had enough frames to hold them all, you'd only need 2 copies of the book to display every single variant art piece, plus they don't have logos or other stuff like cover prices or barcodes on the art, so you get to see all of it un-obscured. Or if you're a cheapskate, you can just tack them to the wall with pushpins or thumbtacks.

I assume you segued into the commission art because of the blank sketch variants, so how exactly do you get a digital commission on a blank sketch variant? I'm guessing you can't, so then you can't display it, but it's nice to look at.  ;)  It seems like you're arguing that variant cover art is only worthwhile if it's ON the cover. Unless it's a digital "blank cover sketch" commission - then it's different.  ;D  Well, you could always buy the digital version of the cover art books too, you know.

PTF

Just did a google search and Sandy's art looks pretty good.

Plus, Tom DeFalco is still amazing. I still kind of wish Ruiz could have done the art. Reggie's his favorite character. Plus he was the other part of my favorite Archie comic of all time.

DeCarlo Rules

Oh, I didn't even remember the name, but Sandy Jarrell drew that issue of BATMAN '66 where he went to Japan and fought Lord Death-Man.*

Not as cool as a genuine Jiro Kuwata Bat-Manga story, but still pretty cool. Then I saw some other stuff Jarrell did (METEOR MEN) that looked kinda loose and scratchy. And then there's the inker, Kelly Fitzpatrick (whose work I don't know either), so who knows. Just have to wait and see, I guess.
