  • DeCarlo Rules: What I don't understand is why they're trying to discourage subscriptions to B&V FRIENDS Jumbo digest. It's been published at 10 times per year frequency for the last 3 years -- just like the other B&V jumbo digest. So if they're both published just as often, why do they offer a choice of 10 issue or 20 issue subscriptions for BETTY & VERONICA, but only a 6 issue subscription for B&V FRIENDS? You can get a 12-issue subscription to B&V FRIENDS on the website, but if I remember correctly, the printed ad for subs only offers the 6-issue sub option. Why isn't it the same option as the other digests (10 issues or 20 issues), if they're all published 10 times a year? And they ARE.

  • Tuxedo Mark: Just looked at Archie Comics' subsciption page. Archie Meets Batman '66 is a six-issue miniseries. Archie 1941 is a five-issue miniseries. There's a six-issue subscription for Betty and Veronica: Friends Forever and Vixens (surprisingly; might get transferred to the new B&V title) and a twelve-issue subscription for Riverdale. Riverdale Digest isn't listed, so it looks like it's been cancelled.

  • CAPalace: I'm a woman btw and I'm just so sick of the blatant anti-men thing going on in comics these days. It's not doing women any favors either. :/
    July 09, 2018, 09:05:40 PM
  • CAPalace: They're banking on Archie 700 to sell a lot because "lol a new number wow lol" and it will for the first issue but it'll just go back to the average/poor numbers it had before. And YOU KNOW with that writer on B+V it's going to turn into an anti-men, oooh girl power lol violence against men and demeaning men is feminism and fun lol lol Good luck. I'll stick to Ebay to find the DeCarlo stuff thanks.

  • Tuxedo Mark: I'm looking forward to the new B&V series. Personally, I think that previous B&V series by what's-his-name was way worse than anything that Rotante wrote on Vixens.
    July 09, 2018, 08:43:47 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: So, so predictable... they love to exploit NUMBERS, whether it's a single digit (1 or 0) or a triple-digit ending in 00. Good lord, I can't believe they're actually giving Jamie Rotante ANOTHER B&V series to write ruin! She is the worst I've read -- although it's a tough call, Marguerite Bennett was pretty horrible as well. Nick Spencer can actually be quite good as a writer... or pretty bad, depending on the character and the direction. He was great on ANT-MAN and SUPERIOR FOES OF SPIDER-MAN (both books that had a strong humorous subtext), and not so hot on CAPTAIN AMERICA and THE AVENGERS. And he's he new writer on (yet another) first issue of THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, so I wouldn't guess the ARCHIE gig will last. ACP could probably only afford to hire him for that ONE issue, #700.

  • Vegan Jughead: ARCHIE isn't on hiatus officially. The last official word from Archie Comics is that there is "big news about the flagship ARCHIE title" coming up after the "1941" miniseries. We'll see. RIVERDALE is supposed to come back early '19 after the TV show returns.

    July 05, 2018, 03:09:04 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: I guess there's still THE HUNGER and VAMPIRONICA, but they're still so new that it's hard to think of them as "ongoing".
    July 05, 2018, 12:14:16 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: So both ARCHIE and RIVERDALE are "on hiatus"? That means ACP has no ongoing floppy comic titles. Not a good sign. Good thing they still have the digests going (knock on wood).

...Thank you,  Fernando. :smitten: :D

...I received an E back,  she is selling S LDR via PayPal for 1 dollar 99. I don't't object to buying it -thiugh I'd like to avoid PayPal if I could >:( - but I'd like to get a preview,  a taste,  if the story first.  Even see what the character looks like.  And how long a comic is it-how many pages :o ?

...The link here for the Bleeding Cool story about Nancy and the autistic character did't work,  but I found it or similar. It talked about Nancy sending the comic with the character if you asked.  In pdf? E-mail? Paper? Any-all other.? I followed a link in the story,  which was from January,  and sent a request to her ACP business address - Is she still sending.them out? I suppose I win't find out till Tuesday at the earliest...

...TIPPY TEEN material was,  additionally,  reprinted in the 70s by Martin Goodman's short-lived Atlas Seaboard Comics,  relettered,  to be called VICKI.

But now is available again? Ay Yi yi :idiot2: :buck2: !

...Thank you for everything.  I wrote in existing lines rather than start a new one at least partly because I didn't want to displace the Sears/K-Mart line from the " Current Stuff " column! :crazy2:

...Thank you.  Unfortunately,  I am,  once again,  in a hisoital, with only a teeny-weeny smartphone, and the Creators page won't expand into readability. Back in the day,  there was a link to the strip's page here.  I still think it would be good to have.  There's so little activity here,  I decided to concentrate everything I had to say on one line that had some activity.  Did anyone else here see that HARPER'S piece but me?

...This is not a very optimistic board lately,  is it :-\ ?
  BTW,  speaking of internal conflict at ACP...what became of that sexual harassment/musconduct suit that one faction at Archie brought up +hat was written up in HARPER'S magazine in their front of the book section what is,  UFO,  maybe a couple of years ago by now?
  Also,  is the newspaper strip still running,? Even as reprint? I asked a ways ago about recent-putting up the link but it seems that no one ever did ??? .

...I took my first trip to the K-Mart in Watsonville, 1 hr away by bus since I've been back here, to see if they still sell Archie digests. They do! ;D :D
  B&V Jumbo Nos. 161 and 163, IIRC. I bought the former ~ from what seemed to be their only magazine rack. The digests occupied three of the four digest-sized spaces, but that's probably because someone left them spread out. I didn't see any Archie trademark on the digest-sized  racks, I saw something else. They were stocked right next to the Black Panther official tie-in, BTW! Only one Spanish-language magazine, Hola! I thought there'd be more. They had TV Guide, I hadn't seen that in a while/was wondering if they were still in business. Intreprid Boy Comics Reporter, signing out! :) :smitten: ;)

...From what little I've seen of Harold Teen, I've always wanted to see more, but like  a whole lot of rather "homey " newspaper strips of old,  there appears to be little if any available reprints of it.  The strip was known for its trying to keep up with contemporary teenagers' slang, apparently -A touch different, since it appeared in daily newspapers back when essentially anyone literate bought one - And read the comics therein!!!!!!!!! ;) :D  - so maybe it meant that HT tried to be more literally fashion-forward, as it were, than classic Archie, which -
 arguably?? -updated itself,  but always in a juuussst cozily, mildly, behind the times manner? Maybe that's not so.  Discuss this?

...It was one of the " S "s
in the Sears sign that was missing color. I got there about 6:30 tonite (Sunday). They have 4 anchor stores, Sears, Target, Kohl's, and Macy's. Their closing time was 8 PM. The Sears was already closed :-* ! As was a Lenscrafters by it. I suppose a Lenscrafters would need a liscenced glasses-grinder/exam-giver on site at all times, and I recall the speculation made here earlier about pharmacies, etcetera...And, did the " Black Friday " weekend have any effect on this? The Kohl's was open. By the time I got to the readon I came, Target (past 7), they seemed 100% closed. As I left (to go into the open-till-10 Chili's actually) about 9:45/50 the comics shop was still open and Kohl's was. I never got a look at Macy's.
