I'm really intrigued by this. Too bad it doesn't come digitally. Is it similar in tone to B&V or too kiddish? I've read some things from Papercutz. The Barbie series was definitely for kids while I enjoyed Chloe (originally a French comic).

I loved it because of all the Sex and the City spoofs. I kept waiting for the other shoe to drop and it did. The younger male "fantasy" is very popular in Asia particularly in K-dramas known as "noona dramas."

Love Tokyo Tarareba Girls! Did you like it?
I have that Back Issue #107 but I haven't started it yet because it seems so overwhelming with information. From what I read of it I didn't understand the older non-Archie comic book references but I'll get to finishing it eventually. I really liked that Dan Parent interview in that other comic book store magazine you recommended. I didn't know he was bisexual.
Didn't like Archie Meets Batman #1. The Archie story was terribly drawn. Dan P must've been focusing on Batman which had good art I thought but I wasn't interested in the story.

I read it. Too depressing and too obvious by hinting that Archie will be signing up for the military. Decarlo is right. It's nothing like the comedic comics from the 40s.

Debating on whether this is worth a purchase or not.

Boo! Haha. That's exactly what I said when I read this. Unfortunately I did buy the comic first. But as I haven't been keeping up with digests lately, these new-ish stories should be new to me. So they're kinda like mini versions of those Best of 2016/2017 Digest Annual digital only releases they've been doing.
Couldn't they have included at least one totally new story? I thought Classic Archie was making a comeback.

Thanks. There was this one and I remember a magazine doing a Christmas special with Archie in it within the last 1-2 years or so.

Yay digital. I think I will order it then.
Didn't you mention another magazine that had Archie creator or Dan Parent interviews in it? Back Issue?

I don't watch every week and I tend to marathon the episodes. My favorite part of the show probably is the Easter Eggs and there's plenty of them. They usually elicit a chuckle from me.
Harvey and Ivy meet Betty and Veronica actually kept my attention more than the Vixens series but both are series I only read if I'm bored.
They squandered the potential with this one. I wish they would've brought The Veronicas back (who aren't super kiddie pop anymore) but they could've done some other pop artists.

I'm more of an occasional digest reader these days though I have read a lot in the past. I think the only reason they use the 90s and 00s stories is because they're already digitized and easy to reprint. A lot of the older 60s-80s stories which the grandmothers really want aren't digitized and would have to be re-colored. A lot more work for ACP who would rather make a cheap easy profit. I think the grandmothers buy the digests hoping for 1-2 of those older stories.
I track my reading on Goodreads. I've read over 800 comics (I include manga, graphic novels, and picture books in that category) since I rediscovered comics in the summer of 2015. They have most comics but not really the old stuff (ie Romance comics from the 60s and 70s). It seems like a lot but I don't read that often. One of my goals this year is to read more than 10 novels (books without pictures).
