  • Tuxedo Mark: My review of "The Best of Buds", a B&V story from 2011 [link]
    February 16, 2018, 09:50:56 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: @irishmoxie -- If they are indeed reprinting those early B&V Spectaculars from the Archie Giant Series, I'd agree it's a good choice (although it makes me wonder why they'd bypass the Betty & Veronica Summer Fun issues, which would be even more desirable to have). The early Life With Archie issues are a good choice as well, and I'll be buying both of those collections. Archie at Riverdale High, one of the dullest titles, is more of a puzzling choice. I won't be buying that one.
    February 16, 2018, 05:48:41 AM
  • irishmoxie: I own all of B&V Spectacular and most of the later issues of Life with Archie but I would definitely get these collections as they are easier to read without worrying about tearing the pages of fragile comics. Digital would be even better for me.
    February 15, 2018, 04:27:51 PM
  • irishmoxie: I don't see that classic B&V Vol 1 from the 50s up for pre-order on Amazon anymore. So it looks like they've ditched that idea for now.
    February 15, 2018, 04:26:14 PM
  • irishmoxie: I think their idea was to go with the more "edgy" Classic Archie ie fantasy stories from Life with Archie. I haven't read many of the Archie at Riverdale High books but my impression was that they were the "issue" books focusing on a particular issue pertinent to teens like protesting school lunches or something.
    February 15, 2018, 04:19:01 PM
  • irishmoxie: I suspect they will start the Spectacular collection with the Dan Parent stuff because that is more distinguishable. Older B&V Spectacular stuff is very similar to regular B&V.
    February 15, 2018, 04:17:08 PM
  • rusty: Dark Horse could still have the rights, even if they are not using them.  Archie may be thinking that the Life With Archie and Archie at Riverdale High books wi be more marketable than the older comics.  If so, I would agree with that thinking.  Cosmo is an interesting choice for a collection, but maybe they are hoping to capitalize on the new series or have other plans.
    February 15, 2018, 08:28:49 AM
  • Vegan Jughead: They also have "Cosmo: The Complete Merry Martian" up for pre-order!  How many of these things are in the works? This could be cool, but as DeCarlo Rules says, it's some kind of weird titles they're starting with.
    February 15, 2018, 07:12:42 AM
  • Vegan Jughead: At least these don't say they'll be black and white!  It says they're  "presented in the new higher-end format of Archie Comics Presents".  That sounds promising if they execute it well, and, you know, actually produce and release the books.
    February 15, 2018, 07:11:06 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: I'm not really sure if the B&V Spectacular collection goes back to include the individual B&V Spec issues from the Archie Giant Series, or starts with #1 of the 1990s series, either.
    February 15, 2018, 12:11:39 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Dark Horse has only really done the 1940s (and early 1950s) ARCHIE and 2 volumes of JUGHEAD, and they haven't solicited a new volume in a couple of years. ACP could certainly start with any title (Archie's Girls B&V, or Archie's Pals 'n' Gals, for instance) besides those two.
    February 15, 2018, 12:08:18 AM
  • rusty: Are the rights to the older titles still tied up with Dark Horse maybe?
    February 14, 2018, 03:54:08 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Seems odd that they'd start off a line of chronological reprint volumes with titles other than the main ones. Whatever happened to the trade collecting the earliest issues of Archie's Girls Betty and Veronica?

These are some great reviews, PTF --  especially since they're so positive!  I'd love to print some of your reactions in issue 5's Letters page.  If you'd like that too, just email your review for issue 4.3 to editor@sitcomics.net and include the words "okay to print" somewhere, along with the name you want immortalized in Blood Letters.


And if anyone else reading these reviews feels inspired to try a free sample from Super 'Suckers, they can go to www.sitcomics.net and download the first 27 pages of issue 1 for free.  The website also has a long list of comic shops selling the print copies and if you don't live near any of them, you can order all of them at mycomicshop.com or graham crackers comics online store.


Thanks again for taking the time to give such thorough feedback, PTF!

Thanks for the reviews and the feedback, PTF!  Very enlightening.


Any chance you’ll share your thoughts on issue 4’s 3 digital chapters?

Brand new issues 3 & 4 of Super 'Suckers just went on sale yesterday (also up in chapter versions on comixology and Amazon's kindle store).  The issue 3 letters page features an appearance by someone familiar to this forum. Has anyone read all 120 new pages yet?

4
Copies of both Super 'Suckers #3 & #4 just arrived from the printer and they look amazing!  Each contains a full-color, self-contained 64 page story for only $3.99, plotted and co-scripted by me, Darin Henry (Seinfeld, Futurama, etc), with art by Jeff Shultz (Betty & Veronica), colors by Glenn Whitmore and lettered by Marshall Dillon.  They both go on sale January 31st, 2018 along with new printings (featuring new Jeff Shultz covers!) of issues 1 and 2.


And, for the first time ever, all the new Binge Book releases will be distributed in all 50 US states via Sitcomics' new "Sell-Through Distribution" System by which participating stores can receive totally free copies of The 2018 Binge Book Catalog which they will give away to their pull-list subscribers starting January 3rd.  Those stores will take customer orders until January 25th and all ordered books will then be sent to stores by their on-sale date of January 31st, 2018. 


I've posted an (almost) up to date list of participating stores at http://www.sitcomics.net  so click on over and if your local comic shop is not on the list, they can be added by contacting me at editor@sitcomics.net and I'll ship out catalogs for free the next business day.  You can also preview scenes from the actual comics at http://www.facebook.com/Sitcomics Thanks for your patience, everybody, because the wait is almost over and some really funny vampire comics are on their way!

Hi everybody,


I hope absence has made your hearts fonder because I've been away a while.  Making 26 episodes of TV and having two young kids can do that to you - especially the kids part.  Anyway, the next two issues of Super 'Suckers (#3 & 4 if you're keeping track at home) will finally be going to press this September.  The delay stemmed from a desire to print five new Binge Book comics at the same time and the fifth book has been taking a little longer than hoped.  The good news is you'll have two hilarious issues this year instead of just one and Jeff Shultz, Glenn Whitmore and Marshall Dillon are all back to keep the vampire comedy consistent.  I will also be printing new editions of all five previous Sitcomics, including Super 'Suckers 1 & 2 with new covers, in case you're into repeat purchases or if you're looking for a gift for the vampire lover in your life.


As for digital, instead of releasing each digital chapter (3 per print issue) as they are completed, I'll be releasing all six new Super 'Suckers digital comics on the same day - Netflix style.  And also note that Super 'Suckers 1 will be split into two digital chapters as well.  The old 64 page digital Binge Book release will be pulled off the website (and comixology) forever so grab that now at sitcomics.net if you want to own that version digitally.


There's other news I can't share yet that should please old fans and create new ones so keep checking the Sitcomics facebook page or join the email list at the sitcomics.net website to stay in the loop.


And if you're not interested in Sitcomics, you probably never got to this sentence, so I won't apologize for taking up your valuable time.   ;)


Thanks,


D. Henry
writer and publisher of Super 'Suckers

Really glad (and really really relieved) to hear you liked the arc's finale.  Your reaction suggests we achieved exactly what we set out to do and that's a good feeling.  And thanks for calling out the price.  Its never going to make a profit but that cover price is worth it for Jeff's art alone. It's an even better deal (99 cents!) at Sitcomics.net 


And sounds like it's Time for me to write some new Sitcommercials.


See you in a month or two for issue 3.1!

Thanks for all the fun feedback, DC Rules!  I've been traveling nonstop after Awesome Con (lots of people bought both issues there too!) so I couldn't properly respond sooner.   The delay between issues is a necessary evil for now. The digital releases are meant to cushion the gap but I can only afford to print a comic when there are three or four ready to print along with it.  It is possible that the print versions of issues 3 & 4 will come out together next time. 


The Sitcommercials are in digital releases too but they come in the middle of each chapter instead of between them.


Jess is not into glamming up with a lot of makeup and what little she does is simple enough to do with memory and not a mirror.


The Paisley/India thing is a direct result of my forgetting which name I settled on because she's had about six names since my first draft of issue 1!  I'll try to be more careful and whatever I call her in issue 3 will be the official name.


You make a lot of great points and I'd love to include this post in issue 3's Blood Letters. If that is cool, please let me know at editor@sitcomics.net


Thanks again for trusting Sitcomics with your entertainment dollar. The best is yet to come.

 :smitten: That's fantastic!   I've packaged your books (and free Super 'Suckers super sticker) and will ship them today or tomorrow, depending on my travel to Awesome Con.

Print version of SS 2 (with only one cover and no deleted scene) is at the printer and issues 1 & 2 should be available to buy at Sitcomics.net by mid-June.  Theyre in our unique, 68 page Binge Book format which means all three parts in one meaty package.



Jeff and I are hard at work on issue 3.3 and it's shaping up to be our best issue yet, and PTF, send in a letter and you might get it printed in issue 3.1.  Free Super 'Suckers sticker in it for everyone who sends in a printable letter.


Thanks very much for reading, everybody.  It really means a lot.  :smitten:
