  • DeCarlo Rules: @Tuxedo Mark - Well, they came out in comic shops, but I guess that doesn't help you. If you've got a regular bookstore (or supermarket) somewhere nearby, they should have the digest, anyway.

How high must the body count rise before Greg steps forward to face an opponent he can't possibly beat? Dive into the book UPROXX calls "Highly recommended" and THE MIAMI HERALD regards as "Noir fiction fans will surely dig," as a new season of THE BLACK HOOD kicks off from the killer creative team of Swierczynski and Scott!

At least we final get to see some more Dark Circle issues -- plus Sabrina & Afterlife -- which all sell well in the shops (given how irregular they are) ... if they don't put some effort into these they might as well just give up comics publishing completely ...

BettyReggie

Josie and The Pussycats #1 & Archie #12 & Betty and Veronica Jumbo Comics Digest #47 will be the ones I'm getting.

spazaru

I can't wait for Josie! 


Also, I'll be getting Sabrina, Archie, and the digests.  I better start saving up!

Not reused. These two covers were supposed to appear on digests that were solicited last year, but they never made it. By the time the original issues they were solicited for came out, Halloween was long past, so they never actually got used.





This latter one was supposed to appear on the cover of last years ARCHIE'S FUNHOUSE DOUBLE DIGEST #17. That was solicited before the frequency of the title was downgraded to 6 times per year, instead of the former 10 times per year. I think by the time #17 came out it was January of this year.



Looking forward to this one for Halloween... YES, that IS a re-used cover.

B&V looks a lot like betty and veronica Halloween one back in issu/s #150-160 (forget the one)

Halloween are some of my favorite stories. Those and the Christmas stories.

This is the third (at least) time this book has been solicited. Let's hope it actually sees publication this time around. I'm curious to see what is going to make it "deluxe" -- better paper, coloring, some additional text pieces, or whatever.

Hard to say. Lack of large enough pre-order numbers? Or just a lack of cash flow? They recently solved the latter problem with some outside financing, so maybe it'll happen this time, who knows.

I hope so, but what I really hope is the book will be a great and a good representation of those 75 years.

Well, technically only 70 of those 75 years. The hardcover is a Deluxe Edition of THIS book, previously released in 2011, so we know the contents already as far as the story selection goes.
