  • DeCarlo Rules: @Kallell - Right. That's what I meant. The solicitations that came OUT for the months of November, December, and January... as Diamond Comics Distribution dates their catalogs. And those ACP comics digests solicited in those catalogs would indeed have shipping dates in the months of January, February, and March.  Which means ALL the issues of Archie, World of Archie, Betty and Veronica, and B & V Friends in those solicitations are JUMBO COMICS digests. Unlike those titles, Riverdale Comics Digest, Marvel Comics Digest, and Archie and Me Comics Digest haven't varied in their format from one issue to the next.

  • Archie Comics Collector(Kalell): Very interesting observation DeCarlo Rules. Actually December 2017 was the last month in which there was still three Digest formats: Annual, Comics Double Digest and a Jumbo Comics Digest. As I looked through Jan, Feb and March solicits it seems that the main two formats are Comics Digest 128 pager: Archie and Me and the rest of the main Archie Digests will just be Jumbo Comics Digest 192 pagers. They seem to be doing away with the Annuals and Comics Double Digests for now.

  • DeCarlo Rules: Looking back through the ACP solicitations from November, December and January, it just dawned on me that EVERY regular digest title solicted (except for Archie and Me Comics Digest, Riverdale Comics Digest, and Marvel Comics Digest) is a JUMBO COMICS Digest (192 pages). Are Jumbo Comics Digests the new permanent format? It sure looks that way.

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!

Get ready to see more of Kevin roaming the halls of Riverdale High next season.

Casey Cott has been promoted to series regular for Season 2 of The CW’s Riverdale, TVLine has learned exclusively. Cott plays Betty’s gay BFF Kevin Keller, who loves to add his snarky thoughts to the conversation. The son of Riverdale’s town sheriff, Kevin also had a star-crossed romance this season with Joaquin, a member of the Southside Serpents biker gang.


Riverdale, a teen-soap reimagining of the classic Archie comics, scored a Season 2 renewal back in March. Cott joins KJ Apa (Archie), Lili Reinhart (Betty), Cole Sprouse (Jughead), Camila Mendes (Veronica), Madelaine Petsch (Cheryl) and Ashleigh Murray (Josie) as series regulars among the show’s teen cast.

Mark Consuelos (Pitch) will be joining Riverdale‘s cast in Season 2 as Veronica’s father Hiram Lodge. And another new face will be coming to Riverdale High, too: The role of Reggie, played by Ross Butler in Season 1, will be recast.

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.



Yes, they specified that they are third cousins, who can legally marry.  That means your grandparents were first cousins, so you'd share one set of great grandparents.
You have four sets of great grandparents, so just that one branch is shared.
The average person in our society would probably still avoid that kind of relationship if they knew about it beforehand.. but there are no genetic problems like there could be with siblings or first cousins.

I think it's yet another indication that no one knows what made Archie work in the past.  There may not be a long-term solution, and we're just going to keep seeing gimmick after gimmick, reboot after reboot...But if you really look at Archie's Publishing history, these books were always changing and rebooting...They just weren't as obvious about it as they are now.

Dan Parent is doing a new ongoing series in the classic Archie style...sort of.  It's a little updated, but this will be fantastic!  It will be written by Ty Templeton who I'm not familiar with.  Can't wait for this!

Unfortunately, it hasn't aired yet on Netflix in the USA. But I expect that it will be there once the show ends. A few of my friends have told me that they would prefer to wait until it launches on Netflix in one block of episodes.


Yes it will debut on Netflix in the US 8 days after the finale which is May 11.  So I assume if on schedule it will be on Netlix May 19th.

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.

I personally know a ton of people waiting for it to get to Netflix.  The show is being watched all over the world too. 

Pretty sure season 2 will be the last, but glad the CW renewed it.  It deserved it.  It's been great.

All About Archie / Riverdale episode 10: The Lost Weekend
« on: April 14, 2017, 10:32:48 AM »
It's Jughead's birthday as Betty tries to throw him a small, nice party--which is ruined by the two main villains of the show. Archie is depressed that not only is he and Valerie through but his parents are finally getting their divorce finalized. Veronica must come to terms with how ruthless her father can be. And Midge has to come to terms that she is non corporeal and that's okay.

Okay I know it's not right to start random musing with preview at the end...but Riverdale is too dangerous and CHICAGO is the better option!??


That's right, I was right as Cheryl teams up with Chuck to cause trouble just because they are both evil jerks who everyone hates, so why not?

I'm really enjoying Bughead as they are both damaged people who are decent human beings who have found each other and have connected. Jughead doesn't think he can be who Betty deserves and Betty thinks she has to be perfect. In the end they realize what they are. Honestly, I thought they were going to break up but Poppa Jones actually was a parent for a good ten seconds.

EEEEE Jughead took his hat off for Betty!!! EEEEE

I mean, Poppa Jones wasn't a parent for the entire kegger party, but hey, he's an alcoholic, thief, and possible murderer. Let's not hold him to too high of standards.

It looks like The Lodge Family has something on the Blossom family as they have forced the red hair clan to pay them a large amount of money every month--for seventy-five years!!! I'm guessing Great grandpa Lodge has evidence showing Great Grandpa Blossom killing Not as Great Cooper. Probably on VHS or something. That was around back then, right?

Speaking of Hiram, he hears that Veronica won't testify that he's a good human being--so he threatens to take down Hermoine with him unless Veronica says exactly what he wants!! Humanitarian of the years, folks.

Veronica: Smithers, is my mom good?

Smithers: A saint.

Veronica: What about my father?

Smithers: He's evil incarnate and has committed acts of cruelty that have made the world an irreversible worse place. I found religion solely on the need to believe there is a hell waiting for him.

Smithers: Oh, and how was school today, miss?

Veronica: ...

I think I might move Chuck up on my "going to get killed" list since he punched the son of a the local gang leader with said gang leader in the room and throwing him out.

And it looks like everyone is starting to get sick of Cheryl as the cheerleaders side with Veronica and even her two newly unemployed henchwomen/ vixens don't even vote for her. I guess it doesn't help that if you breath the wrong way this crazy psycho red head tries to ruin your life. To paraphase a horrible C Reiley movie "THE WRONG TWIN DIED THAT DAY."

To deal with getting dumped and his parents divorce Archie gets drunk before the birthday party and then gets drunk even more during the kegger party. And he even drunk dials his dad after the worst bit of camera work ever on the show thus far.

I like how even Poppa Jones acknowledges that the kids are the ones he needs to worry about.

And he probably feels a lot worse now that so much more information was given out during Cheryl and Chuck's revenge fest.

Joaquin: They're going to find out--they're going to know!

Jones: No they won't.

Cheryl: ...Did you know that Lodge hired the Serpents to ruin the theater?

(Joaquin gives Jones a death glare)

(Jones takes a sip of his beer)

Jones: Meddling kids.


...Actually, come to think of it, it really wasn't that good of a revenge. I mean, yeah, you told about Archie banging Ms. Grundy...but that'll only make him more popular. Veronica nailed Cheryl with the the twincest and killiing her own brother. And in the end, the characters ended up in a better place with Bughead stronger after dealing with issues  and Veronica needed to get some anger out of her system. Heck, Cheryl gave the teens more pieces to the puzzle of the murder of Jason.

...

Wow. Cheryl is a horrible villain. She doesn't succeed at anything! I mean, yeah, she's snarky and gets in good lines, but that's all she is!

Turns out that Alice Cooper used to be a Serpent.

Also Mr. Weatherbee decides it's okay for her to advise on the Blue and Gold because...eh. Whatevers.

She also caught Joaquin talking with Poppa Jones and she told Betty. Yep, Jones, those kids are the ones you have to worry about. BIG TIME.

And Archie and Veronica might be a thing. Well, it's a huge upgrade over Valerie. I swear, there should be a rule about bad Dan Parent ideas staying in one medium only.

Veronica decides to tell the world how great her dad is and he rewards her with a pearl necklace. That's good because she broke the last one out of grief about the parent of a friend who attempted suicide because of him.

Veronica decides to join up with Bughead and crazy mom to investigate what is going on. So yeah, that makes three of the four main characters now in the interesting storyline while Archie...

I dunno, there's about four episodes left in the season so he'll probably be with six different girls, mope about his music, and whine about his parents while occasionally showing his abs. See, I never got the hate for comic Archie, but this guy. Yeah. I get that hate.

Anyway this was a very good episode. The only thing I can say I hated was The Archie drunk camera thing they were going for as it looked really stupid. No episode next week as...there's a gamer contest??

Okay, what's up with these video game tournament shows? TBS has one and now CW? You know what I do when I want to see someone play video games? I go on youtube and watch Markiplier.

Apparently I missed a lot in the last few days! 


I got up at 5, walked my dogs and stopped at the grocery store for snacks for a work party.  Locksmith at lunch for a new key to my patio door, then over the border after work.  We have a 4-day weekend here, so I am looking forward to that.


Happy Easter!

I found an old copy of "Uncle Tom's Cabin" at my parents' home this weekend. It belonged to my dad when he was a young boy back in the 50s. It occurred to me that I've never read it and decided to check it out. I'll start reading it later tonight or tomorrow.


Cool!  I'm a distant relative of Harriet Beecher Stowe.

All About Archie / Riverdale episode 9
« on: April 11, 2017, 05:09:56 PM »
Here are my thoughts:

Tree-tapping ceremony. WTF?

Maple syrup empire. WTF?

Why does the board fear Cheryl being in charge? She seems capable of leading the company.

LOL at Cheryl's "Also, 4.0."

So Polly supposedly thinks the Blossoms had "something to do" with Jason's death, but they actually were responsible for sending Hiram to jail, so maybe Hiram put a hit out on Jason?

Veronica's apparent go-to solution after feeling she's wronged someone: flowers.

I'm surprised that Mrs. Muggs kept Veronica's flowers.

What will Cheryl do? Will it be as imminent as the repercussions from the sacked football players, which hasn't happened yet?

Oldiesmann: I'm also very disappointed at these events but the wrong people were punished. It's obvious that De Carlo Rules and his sockpuppet Cosmo were the cause of this. I have great respect for Dan Decarlo, the artist but not his rules. It's obvious he runs this board, not you. Yes, there is an asshole on this board and it's the 3 of you.


For the record, I'm NOT Alexandra Cabot, Mr. Lodge, Rusty, Cosmo or anybody else. Check your IP addresses.


"Archie Comics are COMICAL comics". Take your own goddamn advise. Grow up. Get a clue. Deactivate my account.


Don't know how long you've been around here but "Alexandra Cabot"/"B-ko" has been on here starting arguments forever.  Sorry but your take is just wrong.  I've quit the board several times because of her (his?) nonsense.  I would love it if it's over forever, but given the history I'm guessing it will be back sooner than later.

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.
