  • DeCarlo Rules: @Kallell - Right. That's what I meant. The solicitations that came OUT for the months of November, December, and January... as Diamond Comics Distribution dates their catalogs. And those ACP comics digests solicited in those catalogs would indeed have shipping dates in the months of January, February, and March.  Which means ALL the issues of Archie, World of Archie, Betty and Veronica, and B & V Friends in those solicitations are JUMBO COMICS digests. Unlike those titles, Riverdale Comics Digest, Marvel Comics Digest, and Archie and Me Comics Digest haven't varied in their format from one issue to the next.

  • Archie Comics Collector(Kalell): Very interesting observation DeCarlo Rules. Actually December 2017 was the last month in which there was still three Digest formats: Annual, Comics Double Digest and a Jumbo Comics Digest. As I looked through Jan, Feb and March solicits it seems that the main two formats are Comics Digest 128 pager: Archie and Me and the rest of the main Archie Digests will just be Jumbo Comics Digest 192 pagers. They seem to be doing away with the Annuals and Comics Double Digests for now.
    January 15, 2018, 11:41:08 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Looking back through the ACP solicitations from November, December and January, it just dawned on me that EVERY regular digest title solicted (except for Archie and Me Comics Digest, Riverdale Comics Digest, and Marvel Comics Digest) is a JUMBO COMICS Digest (192 pages). Are Jumbo Comics Digests the new permanent format? It sure looks that way.

All About Archie / Archie Comics February 2018 Solicitations
« on: November 15, 2017, 12:40:07 PM »
Still no Chilling Adventures of Sabrina or Afterlife With Archie (aside from a trade collection). 


I hope that Best of Betty and Veronica Vol 2 trade really happens this time, though.

All About Archie / Your Pal Archie #2
« on: September 01, 2017, 05:45:59 PM »
I just got my subscription copy of Your Pal Archie #2 in the mail.


It's great!  The first issue was just getting us warmed up.  If you haven't read YPA, do it! 


Archie wins the lottery in this one and of course it's a mess. 


The back up story (which is to be continued next issue) is about Reggie getting what looks like a concussion playing football and it changes his behavior some would say for the better.


Ty Templeton's dialogue is funny and Dan's art, as always, is top notch. 


I'm hoping this thing gets extended beyond 5 issues or at least they use a similar idea on different characters.

Got issue one in the mail yesterday as part of my subscription.


Pretty fun!  Great art and I like that there's several shorter stories instead of one long one.  B&V are beautiful drawn by Dan of course!!!

All About Archie / Archie #22
« on: July 19, 2017, 09:13:48 AM »
Archie #22 is sweet and heartbreaking at the same time.  I recommend it. 


It seems like #23 will be a weird time to change artists from Pete Woods to Audrey Mok.  They claimed #23 starts a new arc, but it's going to be really a continuation of the current story.  I like Audrey's art much better than Pete's, so I'm fine with it, but I wish this book could stick with an artist.

All About Archie / The Archies to become an ongoing series!
« on: July 12, 2017, 12:30:42 PM »
http://www.mtv.com/news/3024757/the-archies-ongoing-comic-series/


This is awesome for me because I've pretty much loved everything Alex Segura has had a hand in writing.


It says real bands will appear, and he knows his music so this could be really cool!

All About Archie / Josie & The Pussycats #8
« on: July 12, 2017, 08:52:30 AM »
Just read #8 and I thought it was an amazing issue.  The Pussycats and The Archies go to Tokyo. 


I know a lot of y'all haven't been to hot on this series but I've loved it.  It's too bad #9 will be the last one.


At least Audrey Mok is going to the artist on Archie.  I think she'll be a big improvement on Pete Woods.

All About Archie / Betty and Veronica #3
« on: June 21, 2017, 07:47:54 AM »
I just got around to reading the new issue of Betty and Veronica.  Despite the ridiculously long wait since issue 2, I think this one was worth it and definitely the best issue yet.  It kind of wraps up the story, so who knows if Adam Hughes is slated to do any more B&V? 


I thought this one had more humor than the previous 2.  I was a little lukewarm on those.  Hot Dog's interludes were better too.

I like her art on Josie and the Pussycats so this could be cool.  I've been underwhelmed by Pete Woods. 


The article states:  "It's also the jumping-on point for [/size]Audrey Mok, who has been working on [/font][/size]Josie and the Pussycats (which comes to end this August with Issue #9)"  [/font]
[/size]
[/size] I don't know if this means JATP is ending with issue 9 or her participation in the book is ending with issue 9.

All About Archie / Classic look coming back...with a twist
« on: April 17, 2017, 09:19:47 AM »
Dan Parent is doing a new ongoing series in the classic Archie style...sort of.  It's a little updated, but this will be fantastic!  It will be written by Ty Templeton who I'm not familiar with.  Can't wait for this!

All About Archie / Jughead #14
« on: April 05, 2017, 07:09:31 AM »
Another really fun issue that wraps up Ryan North's tenure on the Jughead book. 


I'm very skeptical I'll like Mark Waid and Ian Flynn's version of Jughead as much as Ryan North's.  I'll give it a chance but Ryan's writing on Jughead has been the highlight of the Archie reboots for me. 

11
I hear a lot of complaining about the reboots and RIVERDALE, etc, but I'm genuinely curious.  How would people on this forum have done it differently? 


I love classic Archie as much as the rest of y'all.  Trust me on that.  In a perfect world, the original house style Archie would be the best selling comic books in the world.  I think they should be.  They're my favorite comics of all time.  However, they weren't selling much.  Something had to be done.  Archie Comics chose one way.  Seems like most of the people on this forum don't like it. 


So, how would y'all have done it?  Personally I don't have any ideas.  That's why I'm asking.


Full disclosure: I'm mostly happy with the reboots and the TV show.  They're not perfect, but I don't dislike them.   


Love to hear your ideas.

Reviews / Reggie & Me #3
« on: February 23, 2017, 08:01:37 AM »
I was a little underwhelmed at the first two issues, especially given that Tom DeFalco wrote them, but issue 3 is a LOT stronger.


For the first time I can remember, we go to Moose's house (with Reggie) and learn a little about his family and home life.  It's a touching sequence. 


There's some funny art in this issue to watch out for too.  Sandy Jarrell's art is always great. 


Whereas with the first two issues, I was kinda relieved that this was a five issue mini-series, now I wish it was an ongoing because DeFalco is doing some good character development here that I could see lasting if he had the time to flesh it out.  Oh well.

Reviews / Jughead 13
« on: February 22, 2017, 07:59:18 AM »
Just read Jughead 13.  This, with the possible exception of the Sabrina issues, is the best one yet.  Derek Charm's art is amazing and Ryan North is the best and funniest writer currently working for Archie.


Unfortunately, he's leaving the book soon and will be replaced by Mark Waid.  I don't see how Mark Waid will equal what Ryan is doing but maybe he'll surprise me. 


Derek Charm will hopefully stay on the book for a long time.  His depiction of Archie is awesome, especially in this issue where Arch is wearing dark wraparound sunglasses.  He looks like such a jerk, in a good way!

Welcome/Introductions / Howdy y'all
« on: February 12, 2017, 08:35:38 AM »
I'm Vegan Jughead, so obviously I don't really exist!  LOL


I'm a HUGE Archie Comics fan and am loving RIVERDALE even though I know a lot of people aren't.  I can't get enough. 


Anyway, this looks like a cool place to geek out about Archie Comics so I'm looking forward to it. 


Fave characters are Jughead (I turn away when he eats animal products...kidding!), Josie, Betty, and Sabrina.  But really I love all the characters and there's at least some stories from every era I love too, including the reboots. 


Nice to meet y'all!
