  • Vegan Jughead: Good theory.  The other reason is Thomas Pitilli sucks.  I thought most of the stories in that comic were really, really good. I wrote to Archie saying please change the artist.  Of course they didn't answer.

  • DeCarlo Rules: I have a theory about why the Riverdale comic didn't sell well, despite the obvious success of the show, and why it doesn't seem to have improved the sales of ARCHIE, either. Why buy a cow when you can get the milk for free? I can only think of a few rare exceptions where the success of a TV series or movie increased comic sales in any significant way (THE WALKING DEAD). Mostly people don't seem to want to go out of their way or make any effort to be entertained, they just want it to be right there and available.

General Discussion / Re: How many comics do you own?
« on: February 15, 2018, 07:14:21 pm »
Interesting to read everyone's guesses as to how many comics they have collected or accumulated. I am fortunate to have somehow hung on to the majority of comics I collected in my younger days. At different times I had different interests, but 90% of  my books are golden and silver age. I've thinned the herd of more recent books in the last decade, but also managed to add others from eras. Recently completed my run of Tarzan from the Dell Four Color books through the Gold Key books. I miss the hunt looking the last few pieces in that collection. Right now my most fun is in Golden Age Archie...great art...wonderful covers and generally entertaining stories. All together I have roughly around 5000 books, but never seem to get around to doing a good inventory. Probably explains why I end up with duplicates every too often.

Lots of opportunities and openings in retail.....so probably there is an even better job coming your way soon. If you enjoy retail work (and it isn't for everyone for sure) you'll find the right spot. I was in retail for the same company for thirty-five years and enjoyed my job, but retirement is even better. :coolsmiley:

All About Archie / Re: Deja Vu

Okay...here is one of my favorite Deja Vu combos. Give good old Archie 10 years to rethink it and he opts for both Veronica and Betty :)

All About Archie / Deja Vu
« on: April 14, 2017, 09:24:14 pm »
One of my pleasures in collecting Archie Comics is finding those I call the Deja Vu issues. It is a fairly usual practice for Archie Comics to use covers from the Golden Age to repeat in the Silver Age. Usually the same gag and cast with some updates in the look. I think the theory was that the average enthusiasm for comic fans was 10 years or less, so there was no need not to recycle a good cover with some updates. Here is Pep 72 from March 1949 and Archie 120 from June 1961.

Well so long Ronnie. I hope you and Alexandra find some board where foul language and negative attitudes are more appreciated and you'll have a good time.

Best of luck.

I'll echo that thought....good job. And now we can go back to enjoying discussing Archie comics and knock off the drama. The return of civility will be a refreshing change.

Uncle Scrooge? Good stuff always and a natural for an Archie reader. Try Super Duck some time.

I think destroyed might be a bit of a stretch....seems more like annoyed

Sigh and poor Alexandra keeps mistaking rudeness as humor. I wonder why her karma just keeps going negative. Perhaps she just needs to find a board dedicated to herself. Seems she is quickly wearing out her welcome here.

Why not try being a little more considerate and you might fit in a bit better. Worth a try.

General Discussion / Re: Sears/Kmart
« on: February 15, 2017, 08:46:35 pm »
Well I hadn't thought about those cafeterias in stores for quite a while, but it was the norm in the sixties/early seventies. K-Mart usually had the as did my old employer Murphy Mart in Bethel Park PA. Even Sears had one at the anchor Sears at the mall. Usually pretty cheap and mostly decent food. Sort of good the way food in bowling alleys tend to be good. Often it was in a raised area a couple of feet off the store sales floor so you could gaze out at your next purchases as you grazed on the food.

Sears /K-Mart are on life support, but the prognosis for pulling through is kind of grim. Before the big box era Sears was king. I can still remember the annual toy catalog. It was the ultimate source for that list to Santa. Heck I think Santa Claus put it out.

Anyone remember Murphy Mart from the sixties and seventies? I worked at the one that opened in Bethel Park, PA in the late sixties. It seems primitive now, but it was cutting edge retail back in the day.

Through the Decades / Re: Favorite MLJ Character
« on: August 06, 2016, 05:22:11 pm »
Ah...another Super Duck enthusiast. Good stuff for sure.

He would definitely be on the short list, but my namesake, Cosmo the Merry Martian would have to take my top spot. Great work by Bob White. Cosmo is the start, but has a great supporting cast with his buddy Orbi, Professor Thimk and love interest, Astra. Laughs and adventures....great combination!

And if want something different (and fun) in a seldom seen book....check out the Adventures of the Rover Boys...Archie's early fifties version of the Hardy Boys.

Welcome/Introductions / Merry Martian arrives!

Well.....nice to be here and see what fellow Archie comics enthusiasts are  finding interesting. I'm a collector of all Golden Age and Silver Age Archie titles. Anyone here have more than a passing interest in Suzie, Ginger, Wilbur, Super Duck, Sam Hill, Cosmo and any of the other classic titles as well as Archie and the gang? I started out as a "type" collector a and wanted one copy of each different Archie Comics titles. Kept finding titles I enjoyed and expanded to filling in runs of the titles.

I have a lot of esoteric titles and interests in the Archie world, but I'm not sure this forum would find it all that interesting if the focus is geared more to current and recent issues. Just wanted to drop in and at least say hello.
