  • Vegan Jughead: Good point on the pricing.  The new Josie and the Pussycats trade is only $9.99 and I can't wait for it.  I can't imagine they're moving many digests at retail.  The hardcore geeks like us subscribe but I doubt our numbers are large.
    August 17, 2017, 10:01:49 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: @Vegan - That investment capital helped pay for Adam Hughes, and printer's bill, plus they resurrected a few of their old cancelled solicits on trade paperbacks that the work had already been completed on.
    August 17, 2017, 09:45:09 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: I'm going to take a wild guess and say that ARCHIE AND ME DIGEST must contain a new 20-page story. But why wouldn't they advertise that fact? It's baffling trying to guess what they're thinking.

Just in case anyone didn't see my reply to the other topic about the issues, everything should be fixed now. The post form being broken was due to a server setting that was somehow messing up the URLs, and the security error was due to a hidden setting related to the addon that rewrites the URLs.


Got a new problem for you, sorry. You know in the albums where you have "newer" or "older" at the bottom of a page panel where you can go to the next or previous page panel? Well, some pages have them, and others don't. One has to go back to an album page with the 24 panels, then click on a panel, as opposed to clicking through the pages...

Got a nice stash uploaded today in my second album! Goldberg-drawn Action Archie and Chuck goodies that include a Riverdale blizzard and earthquake (though both not in the same story, and the earthquake isn't even the main plot--go figure), Melody encourages a boy stalker, a Jughead story, and more! Enjoy!  ;D

I don't know what year this comes from, but Archie's Funhouse only got started a couple of years ago [...]  I know which comic I'd rather buy.


Archie's Funhouse #20 is from July 2016. Jughead & Archie #22 is from October 2016. Both covers were drawn by Fernando Ruiz some time ago. He turned in his final work for ACP over a year ago, so in all likelihood he'd gotten far ahead on covers for these two particular digest titles, and they had been drawn and sitting awaiting publication for some time. This is because as 2015 began, both of those particular titles were being published at the frequency of 10 times per year. Sometime around the Fall of 2015, both of them were reduced in frequency from the former 10 issues per year to only 6 issues per year, which accounts for Fernando's work still appearing on those digest covers long after he'd received his last paying work from ACP.

As I mentioned before, it seems very likely that the digest editor decided that it might be a good idea for covers to become less specific and more generic. If you look carefully at some of the collected 1000 Page and Giant Comics digests, you'll see that those are now mostly all Dan Parent covers as well, recycled from images used on previous covers. If it's a joke cover, it can't be used this way again, because readers will remember the joke and realize that they had seen the same cover before. Worse still, they might not buy it if it looks familiar, thinking that they already own or have read it because of that. They're just trying to save money, and are probably building up a big file of seasonal and themed images that can be recycled (once they have enough of them) over and over for years.

On the left, from November 2016. On the right, from February 2015. Recycled (or re-scooter'ed) after only 20 months.

Welcome/Introductions / Riverdale brought me here
« on: February 18, 2017, 02:25:56 PM »
Hi, I'm Kaitlyn and I am 18 years old and I started watching the new Riverdale series on the CW a few weeks ago. Before I start with my introduction though I want to say I lurked this forum and saw that many either hate the show or love it. I just want to make it clear that this thread is not going to be about the show or turn in a debate about hating or liking the show. It simply is what brought me to here and got me to pick up 3 Archie Jumbo Comics to read. So please don't bring that here. OK, like I said I picked up 3 Archie Jumbo Comics which seemed liked the best bang for my buck and I was very happy with what I have read. The comics I bought were Jughead and Archie #25, Archie #276, and Betty and Veronica #250. So my question to the more seasoned readers out there is it better for me to continue to pick these up periodically at my local bookstore or maybe get a subscription for Jumbo comics directly from Archie comics?

Hi there! I go by Justnobody online, and I'm a huge archie fan who got here from a tumblr friend! I've been into it for years now, I always sorta knew about it but never really picked up a digest until I read all of Afterlife With Archie in one sitting, hah. Looking forward to my time here!

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.

What kinda work do you do that's busier in the summer?


I live and work on Cape Cod. We rely heavily on summer tourism to get us through the winters, so we're ramping up for our busy season.

Welcome/Introductions / Re-introducing myself
« on: June 25, 2016, 12:57:32 PM »
I hadn't been on the site for a while, and then came back to find it essentially starting over, so here I am. I see that many kept their former names, so *waves to those I know*. For those who don't know me (or forgot, because it's been a hella long time, my name is Erin. I used to read/watch Archie when I was a kid, but stopped and only got back into it a couple of years ago. I'm keeping up with the new stuff, but my favorites are the 70s and early 80s stories and artwork I grew up with. I do, however, like the two horror titles.


Favorite characters are Betty, Sabrina, Valerie, and Reggie.


I'm heading into my busy season, so I may not be around terribly much until fall, but you never know when I might pop in. See you later! :)

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 …
