  • DeCarlo Rules: @irishmoxie -- If they are indeed reprinting those early B&V Spectaculars from the Archie Giant Series, I'd agree it's a good choice (although it makes me wonder why they'd bypass the Betty & Veronica Summer Fun issues, which would be even more desirable to have). The early Life With Archie issues are a good choice as well, and I'll be buying both of those collections. Archie at Riverdale High, one of the dullest titles, is more of a puzzling choice. I won't be buying that one.
    February 16, 2018, 05:48:41 AM
  • irishmoxie: I own all of B&V Spectacular and most of the later issues of Life with Archie but I would definitely get these collections as they are easier to read without worrying about tearing the pages of fragile comics. Digital would be even better for me.
    February 15, 2018, 04:27:51 PM
  • irishmoxie: I don't see that classic B&V Vol 1 from the 50s up for pre-order on Amazon anymore. So it looks like they've ditched that idea for now.
    February 15, 2018, 04:26:14 PM
  • irishmoxie: I think their idea was to go with the more "edgy" Classic Archie ie fantasy stories from Life with Archie. I haven't read many of the Archie at Riverdale High books but my impression was that they were the "issue" books focusing on a particular issue pertinent to teens like protesting school lunches or something.
    February 15, 2018, 04:19:01 PM
  • irishmoxie: I suspect they will start the Spectacular collection with the Dan Parent stuff because that is more distinguishable. Older B&V Spectacular stuff is very similar to regular B&V.
    February 15, 2018, 04:17:08 PM
  • rusty: Dark Horse could still have the rights, even if they are not using them.  Archie may be thinking that the Life With Archie and Archie at Riverdale High books wi be more marketable than the older comics.  If so, I would agree with that thinking.  Cosmo is an interesting choice for a collection, but maybe they are hoping to capitalize on the new series or have other plans.
    February 15, 2018, 08:28:49 AM
  • Vegan Jughead: They also have "Cosmo: The Complete Merry Martian" up for pre-order!  How many of these things are in the works? This could be cool, but as DeCarlo Rules says, it's some kind of weird titles they're starting with.
    February 15, 2018, 07:12:42 AM
  • Vegan Jughead: At least these don't say they'll be black and white!  It says they're  "presented in the new higher-end format of Archie Comics Presents".  That sounds promising if they execute it well, and, you know, actually produce and release the books.
    February 15, 2018, 07:11:06 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: I'm not really sure if the B&V Spectacular collection goes back to include the individual B&V Spec issues from the Archie Giant Series, or starts with #1 of the 1990s series, either.
    February 15, 2018, 12:11:39 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Dark Horse has only really done the 1940s (and early 1950s) ARCHIE and 2 volumes of JUGHEAD, and they haven't solicited a new volume in a couple of years. ACP could certainly start with any title (Archie's Girls B&V, or Archie's Pals 'n' Gals, for instance) besides those two.
    February 15, 2018, 12:08:18 AM
  • rusty: Are the rights to the older titles still tied up with Dark Horse maybe?
    February 14, 2018, 03:54:08 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Seems odd that they'd start off a line of chronological reprint volumes with titles other than the main ones. Whatever happened to the trade collecting the earliest issues of Archie's Girls Betty and Veronica?

  • DeCarlo Rules: Coming in August: ARCHIE'S BIG BOOK VOL 4: Fairy Tales. While many of these stories have been much-reprinted in three earlier B&V trade collections, due to the page count this will be the largest collection of these stories so far (and the first time any of these stories is reprinted in standard comic book page size). The BIG BOOK trade collections must be doing well for ACP for them to reprint four of them in the space of a year, so I urge people to support these TPBs if you want to continue to see more of them down the road.

I loved the Cheryl moments. I didn't see this as getting back at Betty so much as stirring shit up. She actually did both Betty and Kevin a favor by getting this out in the open, even if that wasn't her intent. And it did take guts for Cheryl to go out with Betty into the woods.

All About Archie / Riverdale, season 2, episodes 1-2 (spoilers)
« on: October 18, 2017, 09:12:38 PM »
I figured I'd make a combined thread for both episodes, since there wasn't one for episode 1 last week.

RIP, Ms. Grundy, Moose, and Midge. :(

So Ms. Grundy's ex-husband isn't the Black Hood. Who is?

Betty kept a copy of the video of Clifford killing Jason. And she uses it to blackmail Cheryl, threatening to post it. Total bitch move. But Cheryl seems to have gained respect for Betty (in an odd sort of way).

Veronica's way of cheering up Archie: hawt, naked shower sex.

Still getting used to the new Reggie.

Cheryl lies on the witness stand about Clifford threatening F.P., even though, coincidentally, that's exactly what happened.

Hiram and Hermione can't be trusted.

Yay for Cheryl filling in as a Pussycat. That rooftop performance was cute.

Sweet Goddess, Cheryl is hot!

Due to Hurricane Irma knocking out power for nearly two days this week, I had to substitute a quickie comic book review this week. I opened a storage box and reviewed the first comic that I found, which is Betty and Veronica Spectacular #78 from 2007.

My thoughts:

"Something wicked this way comes" turned out to be in reference to the battle between regular folks and the Serpents. I love the way that Betty says it, though, like she's mocking the whole idea.

Is FP reading "Chilling Adventures in Sorcery" in his jail cell?

I wish Betty, not Veronica, had taken Cheryl home, so they could do some familial bonding. (In general, neither girl seems to be reacting to the fact that they're related.) Cheryl's in a very bad emotional state right now. She needs to be given reasons to live. Betty and Polly are the best people to offer that to her.

Cheryl burns the mansion down. That's a bit of an...overreaction. I mean did she really burn all of her belongings and all of the photos of Jason? Or did she have those placed in storage elsewhere beforehand? Also, where's nana? And do the Blossoms have servants?

The rescue scene was epic. KJ Apa actually broke his hand during filming, so I'm guessing the cast that Archie's wearing in Pop's is genuine.

LOL at Archie looking at himself in the mirror and giving himself that "I totally got laid" look.

So Betty was gonna have sex too, but then she got snake-blocked.

Does Jughead have an ulterior motive for joining the Serpents?

Holy crap, who shot Fred?! There's a theory going around that it's the Black Hood. Jughead calls the incident "anything but random". Is Luke Perry signed for season 2?

This week, I'm reviewing "The New Archies" segment, "Jughead Predicts".

11
Reading it, I haven't noticed really anything in terms of offensive content. There's the occasional "Omigod" or "hell", but that's it. Storywise, there seems to be no difference with Classic Archie (except for the stories being longer, but even Classic Archie was doing some of that in its last few years).

Great episode. I just want to add a few things to what everyone else has said:

My mom audibly gasped when Cheryl attacked Jughead. I can kinda understand it, though.

The Cheryl/Betty bathroom scene was kinda nice but too short. Betty's at a loss for words, so give the girl a hug or something!

Betty is a Blossom. Wow. I did not see that coming. That makes Betty and Cheryl third cousins, I believe. Same for Polly and Jason. Nowhere near scandalous. And, hey, last week, Cheryl was shown to have an interest in a Cooper lady, so...hint, hint.

Betty is the only one to think of Cheryl and what Clifford being the killer might mean for her. She immediately calls her to warn her, returning the solid that Cheryl did for Polly a few episodes back.

Betty has Cheryl's phone number in her contacts list. Just sayin'.

I was in suspense during Cheryl's slo-mo walk. I thought "Oh, man, are they gonna catch her?" Then she confronts her dad, doing the exact opposite of what Betty told her to (get out now). Cheryl has this quiet braveness to her when dealing with her parents (see also: warning Polly). She had no way of knowing how her dad would handle her knowing what he did. I guess she gambled he'd kill himself instead of her. That must have been what she was hoping for. (By the way, is deliberately revealing information to drive a person to suicide a prosecutable offense?)

I felt the wrap-up was rushed. I wouldn't have minded it being extended partly into the next episode. In particular, I would have liked to have seen Cheryl reveal she had the ring. We can assume she told Sheriff Kan'tdomyjob, because Clifford taking back the ring ends up in Jughead's summary, but I wanted to actually see Cheryl go "Surprise, bitches!" or something like that.

So next week's episode is setting up for season 2. Not sure what will happen. Maybe Sabrina will appear?

This makes me happy. And I know I am not the only one.

If you don't like the show, just stick to reading the old comics. Hoping for the show to fail contributes nothing positive to the world.
