  • 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.

  • 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.
    August 17, 2017, 09:37:32 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: So Double Digests are 160 pages for $5.99, but ARCHIE AND ME DIGEST is 128 pages for $6.99? Yet somehow a 416-page trade paperback is priced at $9.99?? Or $12.99 for 104 pages of Adam Hughes reprints. I guess they must be using the old "dart-board pricing" method!

"Veronica in Texas" was just reprinted last month in one of the B&V digests. I enjoyed it, but didn't learn a thing about Texas. Neither did Veronica, since she spent most of the story with concussion-induced amnesia laboring under the delusion that she was "Dusty Marlowe, Rodeo Star" (from a novel she'd been reading on the plane just before she hit her head due to unexpected turbulence). As "Dusty", she dyed her hair red, which made her look amazingly like Cheryl Blossom (admittedly not much of a concern for readers in 1991, when the story was first published in VERONICA #17). I kinda miss Lady Smitty.


Oh, I need to get a hold of this!

It's in Betty & Veronica Jumbo Comics Digest #255.

Which, by the way, doesn't look like this issue that was solicited a few months ago...


Instead it looks like this:


It officially went on sale July 26th, but I think my subscription copy arrived almost a week early. This is another one of those "switcharoo solicits" that hardly ever gets mentioned, but in the last couple of months there were a spate of them (I think the revised cover art originally appeared on a solicitation for Archie's Funhouse digest, which seems to have skipped an issue, or maybe I'm thinking of the previous B&V Friends Jumbo Comics Digest #254), culminating in the announcement that Jughead & Archie Double Digest was being cancelled and replaced by Archie & Me Comics Digest. It should still be on sale at Barnes & Noble and Wal-Mart brick & mortars, as well as wherever digital comics are sold.

At any rate, various digest shipping dates as solicited got changed, as well as the contents, page count, and cover art... so things appear to be in a volatile state in digestland. The last time it happened on that scale was a few months before both Archie's Funhouse and Jughead & Archie got cut back from 10 times a year to only six times a year.


Thanks!  I have a subscription to that digest and I actually started reading that issue last night so I'll see that story soon.

I actually don't read any webcomics at this time, though I'd heard of GPF.  I have purchased a few kickstarter collections of webcomics such as The Meek, Sorcery 101 and Widdershins.


I did buy the Batman '66/Legion comic, but haven't read it yet.  That will be part of the catch up with comics that have come in over the past couple of weeks.  I usually get caught up with comics shortly before going back to school.  I also have a ton of manga volumes and graphic novels/trades that I"m way behind on and won't be caught up on any time soon.

Never read Sonic. But hopefully they will put this money towards the relaunch of Betty and Veronica which was the best selling Archie title last month. http://www.comichron.com/monthlycomicssales/2017/2017-06.html


Dan Parent hinted recently at another (almost) classic title in the vein of Your Pal Archie.  Maybe B&V will get the same treatment!

"(almost) classic" in the sense of what ACP is calling "All New Classic"? As in the same cosmetic makeover in character designs used in Your Pal Archie? Or would this be some other experiment stylistically in-between "classic" and "New Riverdale"?


It was just a hint but since it was from Dan, I took it to mean another Your Pal Archie type of thing.

Welcome/Introductions / Hello, Citizens of Riverdale!

Hi everyone! I'm an 18 year old guy from Dallas, TX! I've visited this website several times over the years (I'm 18), but finally decided to make an account. I first stumbled upon Archie around 7 years ago when my mom brought a box filled with them home that she found by the side of the road, and I've been hooked ever since! Yesterday I just finished Riverdale Season 1, which I enjoyed but had some problems with (still going to see season 2 though!)

General info:
My favorite comics are the Frank Doyle/Harry Lucey ones hands down, but Samm Schwartz isn't far behind.
I do read the "New Riverdale" comics, but feel that the reason Archie is so good is because of the comedy. Thus I think that dramatic events such as Over the Edge would have more of an impact if the new Archie was more lighthearted, rather than mostly serious.

Enjoyed Riverdale but thought the killer was disappointing. Also - I really believe that an "Archie's Weird Mysteries" version of Riverdale could work super well if they play their cards right and slowly made the series supernatural. They could introduce Sabrina, and then have some Weird Mysteries throwback episodes if they wanted to, which I would love!

That's about all for me! Can't wait to add to some of these threads!

Oh, and Jughead is the best character of course!

The floppy format is my preferred format and one that I've been collecting for 39 years so it does have that weight of history/habit on its side for me.  I don't like reading digital comics, though I do not begrudge those that do.  I don't really enjoy reading ebooks either, preferring to either listen to an audiobook or to hold an actual book in my hands.

I know a number of people who wait for the trade and I think that is not a bad idea, especially for mini series.  It also helps when there are major delays on titles since sometimes there are many months between issues of certain  titles.  I haven't made the switch to trades, except when I get into a title late occasionally like Outcast from Image, because I still prefer the floppies and not everything gets collected.

It is nice in this day and age that people generally have options in terms of how they want to collect.  I hope that digital sales go through the roof since that will help keep titles afloat.  I've read a number of predictions in recent years about the imminent death of the floppy, but I just don't see it in the near future.  Maybe some day.

I kind of enjoy the binge reading and don't mind the books piling up for a while during the school year.  For mini series, I often put them in a box until the series is complete anyway.  For Image  titles, I often wait until the first arc is completed to read them.  Yes, this could be done by buying the trade, but I'm good with my method.  I'm fortunate that I have a nice job and can afford to buy the number of comics and other things that I like.  It helps that I don't have student loans or a house payment to worry about and that I don't have extravagant tastes.

Back in 2005 when the comic shop I worked at closed, I gave serious consideration to stopping collecting all but a handful of titles.  After mulling it over for a while, I decided to continue as before and have been using a mail order store.  It has worked out pretty well.  I went a different route with paper books.  I now only purchase new books from my favorite authors or books in a handful of series.  The rest of the books that I read are either ones that I already had or ones that I check out from the library.  I make a lot of use of the library.  I know a few people who buy a lot of bluray or dvd copies of movies, though that is changing with Netflix and the like.  If I don't watch it on tv or see it in the theater, I'll wait until the movie or tv show is available to borrow (for free) from the library or until it is available on cable or Netflix.  Maybe I'll make the change with comics eventually, but not any time soon.

With Image, I can often tell by the description, cover and any sample pages whether or not I will like it.  I only rarely get one that I don't care for much.  Motor Crush is the only recent example I can think of.  I used to work on a comic store in addition to teaching and got into the habit of buying all sorts of comics from various publishers, including many from small publishers  I often purchase 35-40 comics or more in a given week.

I buy just about every DC comic, though some of these are for a friend of mine that I order for along with my own comics.  Right now, I have about 26 Marvel titles on my pull list plus various annuals and one shots.  Most of these fall into the Spider-Man family and Star Wars family where I get all of those books.  I also get Daredevil, Defenders, Jessica Jones, Ms. Marvel and Icon books such as Powers and Scarlet whenever they actually come out.

I've got 41 Image titles on my pull list, though some of these are miniseries like the recently concluded Green Valley.  With Image, though, you never know when they'll be back for another series.

I get all of the Archie comics and digests, but none of the trades, except for the Archie Archives from Dark Horse and occasional stuff like the Sabrina paperback.  I did not get the Sonic titles or Black Hood, though.

I've got around 25-30 Dark Horse titles on my pull list, but many of these are miniseries since Dark Horse really seems to like that format.  I've got around 20 titles from Dynamite and another 20 from IDW on my list.  I also get all of the Valiant titles and all of the Doctor Who titles from Titan plus a handful of other titles from Titan.

I also get titles from Abstract Studios, Action Lab, American Mythology, Boom, Aftershock, Antarctic Press, Blue Juice, Bongo, Cartoon Books, Chapter House, Devil's Due, Hermes Press, Joe Books, Keenspot, Oni, Red 5, Scout Comics and a few others.

I don't usually get very many trades for myself.  I'll buy some of the new Omnibus editions from DC if it is not just reprinting stuff from the Archives.  I get the Usagi Yojimbo hardcovers.  I also get some of the Cinebook reprints of European comics like Valerian and Survivors. i will also buy some original graphic novels and a few strip reprints.  I've also been buying the Disney reprints of the classic material from Carl Barks.  I don't buy any of the Archie 1000 page books or the like.

Finding time to read all of this is the biggest problem.  I may eventually cut back, but figure there will be time to read everything when I retire if necessary.

All About Archie / Re: Josie & The Pussycats #8
« on: July 12, 2017, 11:29:11 AM »
I am pretty annoyed at the whole Alan/Alexandra thing. They have no chemistry and neither of them had any interest in each other in the previous issues. Also the way Josie treats Alexandra because of it is so petty to me. Josie gave Alan up - now she likes him again because Alexandra is with him?? That stuff drives me insane.

But maybe it's just me. Maybe it's because growing up as a woman all my boy-crazy friends were constantly causing drama within our group over some 14 year old boy who had no interest in being in a long-term relationship (and honestly I can't blame the dudes lol).

Also, I am overly protective of Alexandra as a character, especially this version of her. It's probably not normal lol.

Otherwise, dang the Archie gang looks good drawn by Audrey Mok.

All About Archie / Re: "Unknown Artists"
« on: July 10, 2017, 01:52:18 AM »
For many, many years Archie stories went uncredited and there were no records kept as to who did what on these stories.  This was especially the case with artists who didn't produce the volume of work of DeCarlo and Lucey. I know I've been present when the digest production crew's only option was to run certain stories past Victor Gorelick and hope that he remembered who worked on them. For the most part, he usually did!


For some reason, this problem with the credits extended to stories published as recently as the 90's. Occasionally, I was asked to confirm if I'd written or drawn a particular story that there was a question about.


In spite of this, I know mistakes were made and I've seen my name credited with work I haven't done. Most commonly, I'm credited as the writer on stories I haven't written.

« on: June 21, 2017, 06:01:18 PM »
I just got around to reading the new issue of Betty and Veronica.  Despite the ridiculously long wait since issue 2, I think this one was worth it and definitely the best issue yet.  It kind of wraps up the story, so who knows if Adam Hughes is slated to do any more B&V? 


I thought this one had more humor than the previous 2.  I was a little lukewarm on those.  Hot Dog's interludes were better too.
I was certainly disappointed with the conclusion and the way it was handled.  Seemed like a cheap way to wrap up a storyline and I doubt this was how Hughes and/or the editor(s) planned this story to go.  Shades of the "Farewell" story arc from the previous B & V series.  I'll re-read the three issues in succession later to see if the story flows (reads) better.

As I've already posted, Hughes has stated he is off the book, so I wouldn't expect to see him again at ACP unless he's brought in to do a cover. 



After nearly a year long wait, it was eh for me. He was trying to make it like a movie with the fire and all that. I really hope they relaunch the series with a new writer and artist. I would love to see it marketed to females this time.
I think "eh" is apt.  I was expecting more, so I'm obviously going to be a bit bent over the conclusion and bringing in Hughes to begin with as many predicted this pairing of Mr. Hughes with these characters wouldn't work out.   :P

How was this book not marketed towards females?  I must have missed all the beer, fisticuffs, and gratuitous shots of the gal's nether regions that would otherwise market this book to me, a manly man of many manly interests.

I'd go back to chopping logs but I just had my nails buffed at Annabelle's Tips and Toes Salon, so I'll just read some Simon & Kirby romance comics until my Conan Masterworks arrives from Amazon.

News and New Releases / Re: ARCHIE COMICS FOR AUGUST 2017
« on: May 29, 2017, 06:30:09 AM »
See, here's the thing we need to take into account... it's been a couple of years now since we've seen a new story written or drawn by anyone but Dan Parent. Now all of a sudden we see one credited as written by Dan, but drawn by an artist who we haven't seen a new story from in a couple of years -- Bill Galvan. Now, it's possible they may just have overlooked that one somehow when they were clearing the inventory of already paid-for work, but I don't think so. Notice that for the last six months, all of the digests released in any given month follow some kind of theme. In this round of solicitations the digest theme is "Back-To-School", which is as good an excuse as any for a story starring Dilton Doily. That indicates to me that Dan wrote a bunch of themed back-to-school stories for the digests, and drew all of them but one. Maybe he needed some help, because he's busy working on DIE KITTY DIE, YOUR PAL ARCHIE, plus the usual 5-page digest stories and covers... and he didn't draw the covers this month either. They may be old covers they just found that hadn't been used yet, but even so... I think that "How Shocking" 5-pager is a for-real, newly-commissioned art job by Bill Galvan. Either that or the credit is a typo... :(


I follow Bill Galvan on Facebook.  This is indeed new work for him.  He's been posting that he's doing covers and digest stories for Archie.

JUGHEAD #15 (May 2017) - How could I not like an issue of Jughead drawn by Derek Charm and featuring both Sabrina and Josie & the Pussycats as guest-stars? That pretty much sealed the deal for me in terms of whether I'd continue reading the title after the departure of former Jughead writer Ryan North, and despite my dislike of Mark Waid's writing on ARCHIE. So, Waid and co-writer Ian Flynn have me for at least one story-arc, now let's see if they can impress me. While the story's not as inherently funny as what preceded under North's authorship, Derek Charm does his level best to wring the most humor possible out of the script he's been given here, which in some ways is kind of a throwback to the general plot of "Jughead finds himself in an uncomfortable situation where he's being chased by girls". That would fit the general description of a number of classic Jughead stories.

I call shame, shame on the shoot-from-the-hip knee-jerk reactionary Twitterati lambasting Waid for what they perceived as a betrayal of the new Jughead's established asexual persona, based on nothing more than a snippet of plot outlined in the solicitation copy and THIS highly-exaggerated variant cover by Marguerite Savage, which leaves us with the impression that Jughead is now starring in one of those harem comedy mangas:



Nothing could be further from the case, and there's not a shred of evidence here to imply the least bit of waffling about Jughead previously-established orientation. The Ace-defenders simply pre-judged Waid's story. Based on their dislike of Ryan North leaving the title, or their dislike of Waid's work on ARCHIE, I don't know. I was leery myself of what to expect, but so far it seems to be turning out better than expected.

There are certainly nits to pick. Sabrina casts a spell using a magic wand? When has she ever needed any sort of appliances to apply her witchcraft? She's not a stage magician, and aside from some spellcraft books, physical objects imbued with mystic power have never played any sort of role in Sabrina stories. She enchants the Pussycats' instruments so that when they hear themselves play, they'll "become big fans of Jughead Jones", which in typical Sabrina-plot fashion, turns into a spell which makes them all fall madly in love with Jughead (even though they've never met him, and don't even know who he is). That's a little awkward. Waid & Flynn could certainly have come up with a better way of achieving the same effect. Any WHY is Sabrina casting this spell? To allow Jughead to attend the Pussycats' live show at the Lodge Ampitheater. Because he forgot his fully-punched "Chok'lit Tik'it" among the hamburger wrappers he left on his tray while hastily excusing himself (to avoid paying his tab) after a gorge-fest at Pop's, which he then peers in the window and sees Pop disposing of with the rest of his trash while cleaning up his table. He's too embarrassed to try to go back for it, because he'd then have to face Pop about settling his meal tab. Yet he's been eating tons of food at Pop's, and earlier Archie didn't give him his ticket for the concert because he figured that Jughead had eaten enough food at Pop's and punched enough Chok'lit Tik'its to "claim enough tickets (to the Pussycats' concert) for half of Riverdale". Which makes sense, given what we know about Jughead's appetite and his ability to run up a tab at Pop Tate's... so why would he be so concerned about this one ticket he left behind? Doesn't he have a half-dozen more? But apparently, he doesn't, so Sabrina tries to magic his problem away. And why is Jughead so hot to go to a Pussycats concert? Well, it's not for the girls or the music, it's for the arena's selection of junk foods that he considers rare delicacies. So couldn't Sabrina just have magicked up some of that same choice arena junk food? Or couldn't Jughead just have asked Veronica to get her father to give her a VIP pass for Jughead to the Lodge Ampitheather? I'm not sure if Mark Waid's version of Veronica is some kind of space alien or something. She doesn't even seem to be aware of such common colloquial expressions as "greasy spoon" and refers to this as "greasy fork" (based on her assertion that the specific utensil is irrelevant, since they'd all be equally as greasy. Really.) And how can the Pussycats fall madly in love with Jughead without even knowing who he is? So, yeah... plotting that makes some kind of sense is not the strong suit of this story. It's unclear how the duties broke down between Mark Waid and Ian Flynn, but I'm going to say that Waid didn't spend a great deal of time thinking the plot through. But who cares? It's got Derek Charm, and Sabrina and Melody and Valerie and Josie in it. I hope Waid spends some more time actually thinking about the plot in future issues, though.


I agree with everything you wrote.  GREAT review!  I think the humor was good.  It's certainly different than Ryan North and to me, North was VERY different than most other Archie writers.  Flynn and Waid seem closer to what I expect from Archie for better and worse. 


I liked the book after being skeptical and sharing my skepticism with Archie Comics when it was announced Ryan North would no longer be on the book.  They told me they thought I'd be happy with what Waid and Flynn had planned for Jughead, but what were they gonna say?  Ha ha.  Anyway, I'm cautiously optimistic for the future here, but as you say, a lot of the credit goes to Derek Charm. 


Sadly, this title hasn't been selling so we have to hope that changes or we might not get to see how this all turns out.

General Discussion / Re: "Future Quest"...
« on: April 28, 2017, 10:52:17 PM »
Future Quest #10 had the heroes finally getting organized, as Space Ghost is conscious and recovered from his injuries, and he's able to provide the Quest team and InterNation agents with some valuable intel regarding Omnikron. What remains of the Herculoids (Tarra, Igoo, Zok, and Gleep) also arrived on Earth to join in the battle. We saw Tundro's demise in the first issue, and this issue it was mentioned that Gloop had also been absorbed into Omnikron. I have to admit I don't recall what happened to Zandor and Dorno -- are they still alive?

We also got to see, in this issue, the new Mightor meet his prehistoric predecessor via an accidental trip by Ty through the void, and the original Mightor gives him some tips on how to use the power-club. It's kind of surprising to find out that the original Mightor lived in the prehistoric past of Earth, since I always assumed he just lived on some other prehistoric world somewhere in the universe (if not an alternate-Earth timeline), since there are many strange things in Mightor's world (flying, flame-breathing dragons for one) that never existed in the past of our planet. In some ways Mightor's world just seemed a little like Amzot, the Herculoid's planet, but inhabited by more human (or humanoid) tribes of people.

That set me to wondering a whole bunch of things about the H-B Universe.

1. Why haven't Vapor Man, Gravity Girl, and Meteor Man taken a larger role in fighting Omnikron? You'd think the Galaxy Trio would be as much or more aware of the danger of Omnikron as Space Ghost, and being among the most powerful of all the H-B heroes, their particular talents could be very helpful in combatting this menace.

2. For that matter, what about Kid Comet, Astra, and Moleculad? Do they even exist in this universe? You'd think that a group named the Teen Force had something to do with the Space Force of which Space Ghost was once a member...

3. What about other H-B heroes conspicuously among the missing? Young Samson & Goliath, and Blue Falcon & Dynomutt? Will we ever see them? Admittedly Blue Falcon is a bit underpowered for this type of situation, but Race Bannon and Jade are doing all right in this crisis without any super powers.
Sorry about just responding, DR. Good question about the Galaxy Trio. Maybe the writers think they have enough characters, and the GT would be too much, or something. I would have liked to see them, though...
