  • 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.

Daren is referring to Coach Clayton, who seems to care more about the trophy than his son's safety.

Well, obviously he's a school coach so he's got to be concerned about doing his job, and the school ski team. But in the context of the story, I don't think enough time had passed that they were really wondering whether Chuck had gotten hurt or was hopelessly lost somewhere. He was just late for where he was supposed to be, so they started to become concerned and went looking for him. At the time they're first starting to look, time is running out for getting him where he's supposed to be, but obviously if they'd spent more time searching for him and not finding him, they'd have started to become more concerned about him and less about the school winning some ski trophy. It's just that you don't get any sense of context from looking at the cover all by itself. I'd have to find the story again to check, but it's kind of thing that would have been noticeable in the story itself, I think.




Actually it's a little known fact that upon hearing that comment Chuck became so embittered against his father that he renounced sports altogether to become a henpecked cartoonist.

All About Archie / Re: Reboot artwork quality (or lack thereof).....
« on: April 16, 2016, 08:29:06 AM »


Can you remember back when DeCarlo was having his legal battles with ACP?  Were these things discussed among the younger generation of artists & writers, or was there ever any sense of foreboding about the 'handwriting on the wall', etc?  After all, this was even after such well-publicized battles of 'creator vs. company' as Siegel & Shuster vs DC and Kirby vs Marvel. Surely at ACP this must have seemed like a large and scary prospect.

When I first started back in '94, the main guy at Archie... and deservedly so... was Dan DeCarlo. Very closely behind him was Stan Goldberg. They were the giants of the company and there was a sense that they were the top priority (Again, deservedly so!) and that they would always be taken care of. (HA!)

There was already a sense of foreboding because even then the company was trimming the fat. Books like Archie's Christmas Stocking, Archie's Spring Break Special and Betty & Veronica Spectacular were getting peeled away and we were getting worried. Brother, we had NO idea back then!

It was definitely a shock when Dan and the Company first started having their trouble. The shock, however, was tempered by the fact that Dan kept right on working. The guy was invincible! He could shake the Company down and they needed him so badly that they still gave him work. He even gave some pretty searing and candid interviews at the time and he was still working. The highest crime in Archie's eyes has always been when one of their creator's goes public. They can club you over the head and if you say "ouch" out loud, then YOU'RE the jerk. I'm not sure what exactly was the final straw for Archie if it was the actual lawsuit, the heated interviews or what but at some point they had enough and they stopped giving Dan work. When that happened, we realized that no one was safe.  No one, however, was more traumatized by the overwhelmingly negative publicity than Archie itself. In many ways, this was a black eye on them that never completely went away.
