    June 14, 2018, 08:12:53 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: @irishmoxie -- It's definitely complete. All six of the 1958-59 Sy Reit/Bob White original issues, plus the feature-length "Good Guys of the Galaxy" by Tom DeFalco & Fernando Ruiz from ARCHIE #655, and three 5-page digest shorts that guest-starred Cosmo -- and the complete first issue of the Ian Flynn/Tracy Yarley COSMO (2017) thrown in for good measure. It follows the same layout/format as the previous JUGHEAD'S TIME POLICE, even though that didn't carry the "Archie Comics Presents..." trade dress. Not a bad buy for $11.

  • DeCarlo Rules: ...Marvel's earlier JOHN CARTER, WARLORD OF MARS in there, so the DE Tarzan comics need to go in a different box, and SHEENA (also a recent DE title) and DC's RIMA THE JUNGLE GIRL will help fill up that box.
    June 11, 2018, 07:40:48 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Recently. DE's unauthorized LORD OF THE JUNGLE Tarzan adaptations (and its authorized THE GREATEST ADVENTURE) won't fit into my existing box of previous Tarzan comics from Gold Key, DC, and Dark Horse, so I have to start a new box. Logically these get filed with DE's unauthorized WARLORD OF MARS comics (including DEJAH THORIS) and their authorized JOHN CARTER, WARLORD OF MARS. But I also want to squeeze Marve;
    June 11, 2018, 07:38:48 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Interesting. I tend not to group titles by publisher at all, if the characters were not created as work-for-hire (meaning the publisher is legally considered the 'author' of the character). Do they belong to that publisher's "universe" (assuming it has one)? There are some publishers like Dynamite Entertainment where the vast majority of the titles they publish are licensed, and thus were "inherited" from other publishers. Therefore it makes more sense to me to group them together in boxes with similar characters. Flash Gordon, The Phantom, and Mandrake comics (regardless of who the actual publisher was) go together in the same box because they're all classic adventure heroes licensed from Hearst Entertainment (formerly King Features Syndicate). Pulp fiction heroes like The Shadow, Doc Savage, and The Spider (regardless of the fact that the latter did not originate with the same publisher as the first two) also get grouped together. Space considerations allowing, Tarzan (and other Edgar Rice Burroughs adaptations) might share the same box with Sheena and Rima, but NOT with Ka-Zar, because he's a Marvel Universe character.
    June 11, 2018, 07:16:22 PM
  • rusty: I do keep all Star Trek series together in their own section and all Star Wars books together.  I also keep all 2000AD titles together and manga books get their own section.  For titles that have switched publishers, I usually keep them all with the publisher that I identify them with the most.  Tarzan has been published by a variety of publishers, but I keep them with Dell/Gold Key.  Conan is starting to get a bit close with all the success Dark Horse has had, but I still identify Conan more with Marvel.
    June 11, 2018, 06:27:26 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Believe it or not, I even have a box labeled "Pseudo-manga" that contains comics published by American companies and created by American creators like Astro Boy & Racer X (Now Comics), Battle of the Planets (Gold Key & Top Cow/Image), Captain Harlock (Malibu), Godzilla (Dark Horse) and Ultraman. I just want to keep those separate from the boxes of real translated manga in floppy comic format.
    June 11, 2018, 03:34:17 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Well. the problem is when you get titles with licensed characters that aren't owned by the publisher. So if you collect Star Trek comics, you'd have different series published by Gold Key, Marvel, DC, and IDW (and I probably missed one in there). It doesn't make sense to me to put them in different boxes by publisher, but to each his own. Disney comics would be another example. There are even some instances where if I like a certain artist enough, I will put all his work regardless of publisher or characters into one box, like Paul Gulacy, Steve Rude, or Mike Allred (and file them chronologically from older to newer, rather than alphabetically). Those are examples where my interest in the creator far exceeds my relative interest in whatever characters are involved.
    June 11, 2018, 03:14:29 PM
  • rusty: That makes sense.  There are many ways that people can file books.  What I do is file by company or category and then alphabetically within each section.  My first category is Richie Rich then Archie, then other Harvey titles, then Disney, then other humor/kids books, then by company (unless it is a company where I don't have very many books from them.  Star Trek and Star Wars each get their own section as well.  I will probably revamp a bit when I do my next major sort/merge.  The biggest section by far for me is DC.
    June 11, 2018, 09:28:59 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: I don't even file my comics alphabetically. I file them according to how closely they're related to other titles, but it's all dependent on the number of issues I have of any given title, and what will fit into a single box. Fpr ACP comics I just put all the short-run series (whether an actual miniseries or just a not particularly successful title) into one box. Even though some of those short run series star Jughead, and I could as easily file those together with the main JUGHEAD title in another box. For longer running ACP titles, "girl" titles are sorted into different boxes than "boy" titles. Eventually when I have enough issues of BETTY (and BETTY AND ME and BETTY'S DIARY) they'll get their own box, and VERONICA will get her own box.
    June 10, 2018, 09:49:06 AM
  • rusty: I file Jughead under J and Reggie under R in all of their incarnations, though I do file the original Lois Lane and Jimmy Olsen books under S since that keeps them with the Superman books and also because they kept that title throughout their entire run.  If anyone wants to look up Jughead or Reggie in Overstreet, though, they will have to look under A for the early issues.
    June 10, 2018, 07:56:27 AM
  • BettyReggie: I can't wait to get that Reggie book. It's coming out the day after my 39th Birthday.
    June 10, 2018, 06:42:06 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Yeah, I never understood why publishers felt the need to point that out on the covers of a comic book, like maybe someone didn't really know who REGGIE was, and might buy it just because they noticed the words "Archie's Rival" above the big letters that spelled REGGIE? Same with "Archie's Pal" or "Superman's Pal" or "Superman's Girl Friend" -- like some potential buyer wouldn't know who Jughead, Jimmy Olsen, or Lois Lane was, but would know who Archie or Superman was? Just assume you're selling the product to idiots, I guess. Is anyone really filing REGGIE under "A" for Archie's Pal in their collections??
    June 10, 2018, 05:42:02 AM
  • rusty: In it's first incarnation, Reggie was titled ARCHIE'S RIVAL, REGGIE.  It wasn't until after the title was resurrected nearly a decade later that it became REGGIE and then REGGIE AND ME.
    June 09, 2018, 10:23:13 PM
  • Tuxedo Mark: I've never understood why those old titles had "and Me" in them, anyway. Why not just name the titles after the starring characters?

Story Help / Veronica switches places with a maid
« on: November 12, 2017, 04:01:34 PM »
Hey, everyone!  Sorry I haven't been on the site in a while.  I've been busy with my first year of college.  But, I finally have some free time to read some comics and there's one I was searching for since before I started classes.  I read about this story where Veronica doesn't want to go to some party and switches identities with a maid that looks just like her.  I can't seem to find this story anywhere.  So, if anyone knows the name of this story or where I can find it, please let me know. 


P.S.
Happy holidays

Does anyone know of any B&V stories where the girls encounter magic?  Like witches, magical artifacts, or warlocks?  I know that there's one where Veronica finds a wishing pendant and where the girls find a genie, but I'm looking for something new (or old, I guess) to read.   The only stories that I seem to find are ones involving Sabrina and no offense to my favorite teenage witch, I kinda want something where B&V are in the spotlight.  Thanks in advance

This may sound strange, but a Column I enjoy called "Ask Chris" talks about a Frank Doyle (The king of Archie Writers!) story where Betty and Veronica meet...Satan.


That story was more recently reprinted in The Best of Archie Comics, Book Four

I've read it.  Good story.  At least now we all know why Archie always did whatever Veronica said in the 50's.  Lol.

I don't know if this is what you're looking for, but in my second album, there's a story on page 12 called "The Magic Word". Betty and Ronica discuss if Riverdale High was a magical school, like Hogwarts was for Harry Potter. Sabrina makes a cameo at the end without both girls knowing it...

Cool!  I'll be sure to check it out!

I that I'd start this thread to retell all the times that Betty (while trying to sabotage it) actually helped Archie and Veronica's relationship.  Anyone can post this type of story on this thread.  So — here's one called "MATCH ME!" Part 1-4

Thanks for the link . Does anyone know where I can find the B&V story from there called "THE KING IS BACK".  The plot says that mister lodge tries to hypnotize the girl's to stop listening to Robert Cap records.  Sounds funny.

Story Help / HYPNOSIS STORIES?
« on: January 07, 2017, 12:22:53 PM »
Does anyone know of any classic Archie, B&V, or Jughead hypnosis stories?  I've always loved this trope, whether it was on Giligan's Island, Mister Ed, The Flintstones, or The Suite Life on Deck.  You know me, I prefer B&V stories, but I'm also a fan of Jughead.  So almost any type of hypnosis stories are welcome.  I'm just looking for something funny (and free) to read.  Thanks in advance

Story Help / Betty & Veronica play opposite parts in a a school play story?
« on: September 18, 2016, 02:37:24 PM »
I'm looking for a story that was in one of the older B&V double digest, where Riverdale High is having a school play and Betty wants to play the Veronica-Type part and Veronica wants to play the Betty-Type part.  So, to prove that they can basically play each other's parts, the girls switch personalities for a while.  I've been looking for this story for a while with no luck.  If anyone has this story please post some scans.  I've been dying to read it.  Thanks in advance. 😀

All About Archie / Re: Funniest archie stories
« on: September 03, 2016, 04:20:45 PM »
The very first Archie series that I read was Archie's Weird Mysteries and, to me, it had some of the funniest Archie stories around.  The best and funniest one had to be in issue 5.  In this story, Archie still thinks that the Quorkanator (can't remember if it's called that or not) malfunction was what caused all of the strange things going on in Riverdale.  So, when Dilton admits that he built a working time machine, Archie decides to use it to travel back to the day of the malfunction.  Dilton agrees on one condition... Archie has to set him up on a date with Veronica.  Archie agrees and he, Jughead, Dilton, Betty, Veronica, Reggie, and Moose jump in the time machine.  But thanks to Reggie trying to pull a prank during the trip, the time space continuum is completely altered.  Now, Archie and his friends are trapped in middle aged bodies (Archie's fat, bald, & has a mustache; Jughead has a beard; Reggie has a gut with a mustache; Betty and Veronica look like typical middle aged women etc) and their parents and teachers are teenagers.   There's a lot of role switched comedy in the story.  Especially, with Veronica's reaction to being old and Betty trying to use her babysitting skills on Ms. Grundy.  In the end, with the help of Flutesnoot, everything is returned to normal as Dilton takes a shocked Veronica on a date.

I love Thomas Pitilli's Archie #11. He drawed a Gorgeous Reggie for me. I can't wait till we see him in the next Archie Issue. You should look at Thomas Pitilli's Instagram. He has a beautiful picture of Reggie on it.
Sounds cool.  I've been dying to catch up on Archie.  Been trying to wait for Volume 2 Trade Paperback to catch up on the series.  I haven't read an issue since number 7.  But I've been really wanting to check out the battle of the bands story so bad.  I've been reading reviews online like crazy trying to stay in the loop.  It all sounds awesome.  I did get a chance to finally read Jughead Volume 1 Trade and even though the art lacked, I thought it was almost as good as the Archie series.  Different.  But still good.  I'm still waiting for my next paycheck to be able to read B&V Issue 1 as they're my favorite characters.

I'm surprised that they are using covers from the comics in the show somehow. I love the Cheryl Blossom by Veronica Fish . It's gorgeous.

I know, right?  I wish that Veronica Fish was still the main artist on Archie.  But I still think it's awesome that they're incorporating the comic art to define the different episodes.  This feels like the kind of serialized stories that After Life With Archie produces, but without Zombies and too much horror, mixed with the Mark Waid style of Archie.  Hopefully.  Should prove to be a cool show.

Archie Comics tweeted the image of two scripts of season one of Riverdale!  Episode 2 is called "A TOUCH OF EVIL" and episode 3 is called "BODY DOUBLE".  It looks like 2 will focus on Cheryl messing with Archie, Betty, and Veronica's relationship.  3 seems to be centered around B&V, whether it's them arguing, switching places, testing their new friendship, or Veronica helping Betty stand up to her family.  All of the plots are speculation at this point.  Though guessing from the artwork on the scripts' cover pages, I'm probably onto something.  I'll post the pic in the next post because my phone keeps glitching.
Here's the pic from Twitter:
