  • 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.

  • 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?
    February 14, 2018, 03:49:04 AM

  • DeCarlo Rules: Coming in August: ARCHIE'S BIG BOOK VOL 4: Fairy Tales. While many of these stories have been much-reprinted in three earlier B&V trade collections, due to the page count this will be the largest collection of these stories so far (and the first time any of these stories is reprinted in standard comic book page size). The BIG BOOK trade collections must be doing well for ACP for them to reprint four of them in the space of a year, so I urge people to support these TPBs if you want to continue to see more of them down the road.

I can't wait for this. I miss Dan Parent. I'm not crazy about the artwork in Betty & Veronica Vixens. I thought it would be better.

Yeah, I did too, based on the cover artwork by Eva Cabrera. Her cover art seems a lot better than her interior artwork -- or is it just me?

Starting with issue #3, she seems to have switched from that weird...whatever it was from the first two issues to a more anime-inspired style. The girls' clothes and hairstyles are no longer retro either. I think it's an improvement.

somehow it doesn't look like MIGHTY CRUSADERS and VIXENS are going to be continuing past their initial story arcs, either.

That's a bit of a shame, because I enjoy Vixens, but, yeah, the premise is pretty limiting. Maybe they could retool it into a standard New Riverdale B&V title after the arc is done and run it alongside B&V: FF.

If the video series anything like the comic book, Sabrina will barely be in it, while every new episode seems to shift focus to any other character besides the girl whose name is in the series' title.

I haven't read past issue #1 yet, but I'm guessing the show won't be exactly like it, more like kinda-sorta inspired by it. There's gonna be ten episodes of probably around 40+ minutes each. They're burn through all of the comic content in five episodes at that rate.

I just hope it doesn't go completely dark, just because it's a Netflix series. Sure, it can have dark moments, and Sabrina can be torn and conflicted and stuff, but it needs to be able to have fun as well. Kinda like, well, "Riverdale"; it knows to not take itself too seriously.

I kinda wish they'd do it as a slightly darker version of "Sabrina's Secret Life" and/or "Sabrina: Secrets of a Teenage Witch". Have Sabrina attend a witch school in addition to regular high school. Maybe introduce a live-action version of Cassandra as her classmate/nemesis.

For the aunts, I've got a few people in mind. Any combination of two of these would be fine:

Melissa Joan Hart
Emily Hart
Soleil Moon Frye
Britt McKillip
Carly McKillip
Ashley Tisdale

I read that Dove Cameron was supposed to get the role of Sabrina and I guess a Riverdale fan account for some reason wanted to tag her :/

I heard the Internet really wanted Dove to get the role, not that she was supposed to get it. She played along with it, such as randomly posting a picture of comic Sabrina. I'm not sure how she would have been able to play the role, anyway, since she was recently cast in two separate Marvel things, playing two separate characters.

13
I've never seen "Mad Men", but I watched "The Legend of Korra" last year, so I should theoretically be familiar with her voice, although I can't picture the character that it says she voiced.

Also, what's with the @dovecameron at the bottom?
