  • DeCarlo Rules: It's crazy that ACP hasn't reprinted those 2 issues as a double-size one-shot. Or the lead story in a TP collection of vampire stories (including "Twilite" and others).

  • irishmoxie: That's crazy about those Betty and Veronica issues being worth so much. They're only about 6 years old. I'm pretty sure I have copies of them.

  • DeCarlo Rules: On a relatated note, the real FIRST Vampironica appeared in Larry Welz' underground comic Cherry Poptart #1 [link]. That can be had right now, CGCed at 9.4, at the Buy-It-Now price of $280 on ebay. Although the book had several subsequent printings, only the first printing ($2 cover price) contains the Vampironica story. Much, much scarcer than B&V #261 & 262, but then far fewer people seem to be aware of its existence. It may not be the same Vampironica as the one that appears in her own comic book from ACP, but then you can easily make the argument that neither is the Vampironica from B&V 261-262.

  • rusty: Crazy.  I obviously missed that back then.
    November 03, 2018, 10:06:11 pm
  • DeCarlo Rules: Yes, I mentioned this a while back somewhere around the time Vampironica #1 was first solicted or shipped. I even mentioned it to Dan Parent and told him if he still had copies he should get them CGC'ed.
    November 03, 2018, 04:33:03 pm
  • rusty: Apparently Betty and Veronica #261 and 262 (1987 series) are popular now due to Vampironica.  Somebody actually purchased a copy of #261 for $299 on ebay recently.

...Thank you for the correction regarding Dan D.'s death. I winged it, and didn't get around to looking it up afterwards.
  I did not think Veronica looking for a classic car was in any way odd, BTW, and I don't see how you reached that interpretation.

Let's look at reprinted Archie stories and wonder, from the references in them, whether they've been revised. Yeah!!!!!!!!!!! ;D :smitten: :D

  In B&V FRIENDS #264, a Dan DeCarlo-penciled story has Veronica looking for a collectible
car on the Web. Dan D. passed before the 20th Century was
over, and had left Archie on bad terms by then. Would a story from earlier in the 90s have dropped the term/concept? I was rather late, I suppose, getting on the Web - 2000-2001 - so that no doubt affects my viewpoint.
  A clearly early-60s story (Archie in letter/bowtie outfit) drops " groovy " as a slang phrase, in a panel showing
a big pre-'66-style big-finned car, as a matter of fact! Was " groovy " really Archie-level slang then?
  A " Gag Bag " has Archie/Jughead using a quadrophonic record player! :2funny:

...Thank you :smitten: [size=78%] ![/size]

...I don't know that there is :( . And even if there is. it's likely I don't know how to do it...I'm EXTREMELY undersupplied with
computer knowledge :'(



...(I lost another draft :-[ )...I don't know whether this phone has that...and if it does, I might not be able to do it :( . I am REALLY I xersupplied with tech know-how :'( .........

Other Media / The " Carrie " Riverdale Episode
« on: September 30, 2018, 08:24:11 am »
I thought I posted about the " Riverdale " episode where they did a production of the musical bases on Stephen King's " Carrie ", but I searched for it and I could not find it :-[ .

...Oh. God, another carefully written draft fell victim to this crappy phone! :'( :'(

...I read it. Okay. Interesting to see Veronica return to her earlier b-word characterization. Did Archie accidently drop the picture when leaving Betty?
  For historical accuracy, I see that the draft was not mention ed at all. Even if we follow the general theory that Riverdale is in the Pennsylvania-through-Massacusetts. Or heart I"m thinking ..questionable that a black female could be at the beach with white friends, and ummmmm, maybe, about Chuck receiving his diploma with the rest - His parents were in the balcony. Chuck"a face appeared discolored in one panel. If we accept the story Archie once advanced, that Riverdale is in Branson, MO/nearby - Well!!!!!!!!!

...I have #1 of this, but I haven't read it yet. Just in case you don't know, there was already a military draft in America prior to Pearl Harbor - I believe it went into effect in 1940 - and I assume the story will reflect this.

...WI1'm an extremely long-serving comic book fan, and I know th background very well! For one quick comment for now, I have been seeing 24- and 28- pagers (I'm not counting the covers, remember.)...and the 24-page format/template was used way back in the 70s, during the underground era!

...My point was how many paper pages the B&V:FF comic book had, not how many story pages it had! It's packed away now, but I recall it having only 20 interior pages - all story, with no ads 8)  - plus the cover. Only 20 pages :crazy2: !

All About Archie / RIVERDALE " Carrie " musical episode?
« on: August 30, 2018, 01:41:25 am »
Did anyone here see this episode of " RIVERDALE " where they put on a production of the musical based on Stephen King's "Carrie "?
  I just found out about it recently, when I saw a vinyl LP of the soundtrack of the episode at Urban Outfiters. with a bonus track. I was going to ask about it here but I ended up buying the LP before I did that :) . I haven't played it or even opened it yet, as I don't have a turntable NOW - but I am preparing to get one (Not just for the Carrie LP, for stuff in general.) - my first in YEARS and years! :smitten: ;D
  I presume there is a shorter CD and digital download as well :buck2: ?
