  • 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.
    July 09, 2018, 09:04:54 PM
  • 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.

  • Mr.Lodge: Think it's time for new leadership, especially in the creative front?
    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).
    July 05, 2018, 12:12:47 AM
  • Vegan Jughead: I'm sure it has been; it was a dumb concept LOL.  The RIVERDALE comic is on hiatus until at least early 2019 and I'm skeptical it will ever come back.

Archie's Friends / How many versions of the Archie superheroes?
« on: September 30, 2017, 07:46:05 AM »
Okay - HOW MANY FLIPPING VERSIONS, ALREADY, HAVE their been of the " serious " super-heroes published by ACP have there been? I was tending to call them " the MLJ heroes, yes, evem[size=78%] including the ones who originated after the MLJ name was given up, but I saw a Wikipedia entry saying " Red Circle " was the prefered generic phrase. Which one?[/size]

General Discussion / It,s all about me
« on: January 26, 2017, 12:46:23 PM »
I haven,t been bacck here for a while , I know .
  For one , I REALLY have tended to have difficulty getting enough Internet time - and , I have REALLY been having health issues :'(  (as [size=78%]well as mucho financial/possessions ones[/size] :'( ) - And , I have bought very few comics :'(  , and quite few Archiees - Partly I,ve just gotten out of the habit - Here in San Francisco now there is only one cmic store I know how to get to easily and they are fairly small-scale - I think they give the New Riverdale 32s a fair play , in fact but I have never bought any 32s of BV , Jug , or Reg - I have rather enjoyed the issues I,ve bought of the Archie 32 , but my money/transportation issues and maybe feeling : it,s a new era : and sort of thinking : Well , mmaybe I,ll train myself to buy or library0=-read something so obviously designed for book collection : about the new Archie -=- Oh , and there,s my health issues . Too .
  It,s my birthday today :) ;D .
  Did this site shut down AGAIN in the months since I was last here ? (Actually , as far as my  degree of involvement with this site goes , in my years coming here I think I,ve had a tendency to come here and put up a lot of posts , maybbe try to cover up the entire : Recent Topics : column - but then not come back for a long time .
  I am actually writing this from a hospital , where I,ve been essentially the last week getting treated for an effect of my Congestive Heart Failure (CGF) - that leads me to massively baloon waterweight , from a normal 270s pounds (I am not a slim person :o ) , 5, 9: ,I was again up to 335 pounds this time - it had happened before , 325-ish then :'(  and took much Lazik , making me massively - Well , you know :-X .
  I also wal=lk using a crutch , and , wrse , hobble along really slowly/tending t get tired due to the CHF :'(  . I have only 7&1/2 toes due to diabetic infections a couple years back :'( . I have COPD of the lungs , too , making (Renal kidney failure too) me at times , cough a great deal :'( .
  I could talk some about my financial problems too :'( .
  If I am in this hospital tonight , oddly enough , their TV system may not get the CW station in San Francisco , it seems it gets the : big : broadcast and a lotta cable stations but not these : second division : broadcast stations !

Through the Decades / Still GA reprints ?
« on: July 09, 2016, 10:17:38 PM »
I bought ARCHIE #8 recently , and , contrary to what I had internalized , it still had Golden Age Archie reprints .
  I was glad .  8)
  Will it keep having them ? Are these stories which have already been reprinted in Archie book collections (thus already " mastered " , if you will , for reprinting) ?
  Do the Jughead and B&V titles feature reprints too ?

All About Archie / " Going steady " in Riverdale
« on: July 09, 2016, 10:14:23 PM »
I recently got a couple more recent digests at the same area Safeway I mentioned I had been meaning to write about them but I don't have them mear me now  >:( .
  However the odd thing was that in one digest TWO DIFFERENT STORIES ! referred to the concept of " going steady " - and they weren't Fifties/early Sixties stories - Really , who talks about " going steady " anymore ?Or since thelate Sixties , iF that ? - but , one was the , I believe , second part of that booklength first Archie-Valerie story from a few years ago in which the Lodges at the movies see Archarie and , noting that Archie is not G. S. w/Betty or Ronnie , decode not to get involved .
  Another one was likely a 00s Satn Goldberg Betty tory from the old 32-page title too it had Bett thinking " Archie is finally going to ask me to  go steady ! " !
  GOING STEADY  :D ????????????????????

All About Archie / Mr. and Mrs. Lodge
« on: July 09, 2016, 10:03:17 PM »
When I was a kid stories almost never showed Mrs. Lodge .
  Really (I'm 56) ~ these 60s (reprinted in the 70s I guess more than as new ones)/70s stories made so little use of Mrs. Lodge that you could easily think that Mr. Lodge was one of the many widowed daddies that 1960s situation comedies (Brian Keith , Fred MacMurray...) so liked ~ I only - I THINK - remember one vintage story showing Mrs. Lodge and it was version considerably different from the " silver fox/stylish woman of a certain age " that the 00s comics showed !
  I recall this story showing Mr. Lodge , in a nostalgic mood , remembering his young married years , when he lived in a pretty basic apartment and was out of town (As a salesman ?) a lot of the time ~ He recalled the little Veronica rushing to meet him when he came back ! Mrs. Lodge was at home , of course , TC-ing of B .
  This was before Archie came up w/this concept of the Lodges always having been rich , and having come across to America on the Mayflower which I ran into again in a recent digest (However , I remember an Artie Andrews story showing a child Mr. Lodge moving to Riverdale at modest/perhaps - upperish ? - middle-class but aspiring level so who knows .) !
  IIRC , furthermore , this story showed a modern-day Mrs. Lodge - who was depicted as an overweight , rather empty-headed , society woman concerned with trivial stuff (the Margaret Dumont - Charlotte Greenwood ? - arche/sterotype) with the obvious implication?? that she and Mr. Lodge had rather grown apart over the years .

All About Archie / What's the state of Archie ???...
« on: June 13, 2016, 06:55:04 PM »
...Business/structure/planning-wise , I mean .
  Has it been about two years since I was here ? It's been , stretching , about two years that my health , at least in part , has kept be bouncing around along the coastal Pacific Northwest , Santa Cruz to Olympia , Bellingham , Seattle , Santa Cruz again and back to San Francisco .
  About two years back , IIRC , Archie had cut down on digests a bit , and was down to just one Archie 32-pager , the ARCHIE monthly .
  I had found out that they were still publishing modern-style humorous/cartoon Archie in the digests , while doing the " new approach " in the 32-pagers (Of which I have only seen the " ARCHIE " title - I have had #s 1 , 2 , and 7 , which last came off like the end of a story arc , but I see the first TPB in of #s1-6 - I suppose they had planned to do the standard length already ?) . It seemed a bit sad , but okay (That make any sense ????) .
  But now , is Archie-the-company apparently planning to move away from new stories from the digests ENTIRELY , and bet the farm ~ I suppose ~ 100% on the new approach , and I guess hope that the " RIVERDALE " TV series will be the cavalry ? (I tend maybe doubt that modern-day TV shows help the sales of the base comic all that much , it isn't the 60s or even the 80s anymore .)
  So Dan Parent ~ going through already-bought scripts ~ and semi-retired Bob Bolling are ALL the creators working on digest material now ?
  I bought the first couple Chilling Sabrinas , but the endless delays at least contributed to me falling off . I never got on board with Afterlife With . There's that lawsuit/sexual harassment thing between Archie-owner factions , too ~ I don't know whether I ever mentioned this here , but HARPER'S magazine put  a brief bit about it i their front-of-the-book kin d of " oddball bits " section a bit back , thy were , obviously , amused by the whole concept , as many " normals " would be .

All About Archie / Retail reports
« on: June 13, 2016, 02:32:06 PM »
Let's make this an all-purpose thread for reporting our sightings , etc. of Archie stuff ~ especially the ACTUAL comic books and digests (I guess many?? people here would tend to reserve " comic books " for " standard " 32-pagers so thinking of that I wrote it that way)  :2funny: !
  I bought a Jughead and Archie?? at a Safeway here in San Francisco t'other day , " the Castro Safeway " . They also had World Of Archie , IIRC . I was going to look up the last issue of the 32-page " last " B&V series ~ but this computer workshop's computers blocks comics.org !!!!!!!!!!! FRICKEN FRATTEN RITZEN RATTEN .
  Can anyone direct me , please , to a site where the last few ishes of the now-discontinued last B&V covers are up , please ? :'(

All About Archie / The structure of the digests ?
« on: June 11, 2016, 04:06:41 PM »
Once and for all , is the balance of the Archie digests , in general ~ Or , HAS it been , since I get the impression that , in my absence , something has gone a little rotten in Mamaroneck business-wise !!!!!!!!!!! Has it , up until Donald Trump threw his hairpiece in the ring ;D , say , the recent past ~ Have the Archie digests generally had (1) The first story and (2) the last story being new ones ?
  Plus maybe some other full-fleged stories , and some filllers/gags of some kind .
  What has the general balance/placing of new against old material in the digests been ?

All About Archie / Bob Bolling still working for Archie ?
« on: June 11, 2016, 04:01:45 PM »
Is Bob Bolling still working for Archie ? That digest I mentioned buying recently had a (I presume) new story by him , the last one ~ If Bob is still active , I think tht might mke hime the only still-active Silver Age artist !!!!!!!!! (Of course , Stan Lee ~ and , actually , Roy Thomas ~ ar still active , as far as WRITERS go... :) )

Welcome/Introductions / The Poster Formerly Known As John Asperger...
« on: June 11, 2016, 03:34:58 PM »
... :D ;D ...I have been gone a long time , and I seem to have forgotten my old password , and even the precise spelling/capitalization of the " J. A. " name , so I re-monic- RE-BOOTED  ;) !!!!!!!!!!! ~ myself !
  My health  has not ~ at all , to put it mildly ~ great , and money has been tight , and getting comics of any kind was , especially when I was really sicker , difficult ~ I can get some now .
  I'm less in touch with Archie now , but I bought a digest at a Safeway the other day , which was a current one (I'd bought what turned out to be a yearish-old one at what is now my LCS here in San Francisco) , and that sort of inspired me , finally , to get back...I missed what I guess was the last issue of the " old " Betty and Veronica 32-pager , which pissed me off :knuppel2: ...
