  • DeCarlo Rules: That's pretty much the whole point of having an internet -- it connects you to entertainment, information, and people who would otherwise be too far away from you physically, or would involve much greater effort on your part to connect with. And although there are some advantages for comic book collectors inherent in the direct-market dedicated comic book shop system, the major BIG (obvious) DISadvantage is that only a few thousand of those shops exist, compared to the huge number of retailers who used to carry comic books along with their other products back in the days of the "newsstand distribution system".

  • Tuxedo Mark: The only "local" comic shop within "reasonable" distance of my house is 18 miles away, in the next county. Yeah, no, I'll continue getting my comics digitally.

  • DeCarlo Rules: @Archiecomicxfan215 - FCBD comic books may be free to you, but the retailer has to PAY for those comic books he gives away for free. The publishers of the FCBD comics make no profit off them, and they're distributed to retailers by Diamond Comics for free, but they have to charge comic shop owners money for them, because paper and printing costs money. Your local comic shop owner loses a small amount of money with every FCBD comic book he gives away. Of course the whole idea behind FCBD is that sampling those free comic books will create interest in customers actually BUYing the retail versions of those FCBD comic books later on.

  • DeCarlo Rules: Don't forget to pick up the FCBD issue of DIE KITTY DIE: I Love You to Death! by Dan & Fernando from Chapterhouse Comics! Oh, and I guess if you care about that RIVERDALE thing, you could pick up the FCBD issue where Pop Tate eavesdrops on all the conversations of his teenage customers (makes him sound a little creepy, if you ask me...) Doesn't an adult business proprietor have more important things to worry about???

All About Archie / Life with Archie (Warning: Possible Spoilers)
« on: April 06, 2018, 11:30:32 PM »
I just finished reading it through Comixology in the volumes. I'd recommend using the Unlimited service to just "borrow" a published book, then when you finish it, "return" it. You'd pay a monthly fee. I think it's worth it, but I digress. On to the story, or in this case, stories, since there are two of them, with Archie either marrying Betty (AMB) or Veronica (AMV).


Both universes had good stories in the soap opera style, if you're into that sort of thing. LWA was unique in that it showed The Gang & Co. all as adults, not as a dream, but as actual, real stories. I found myself referring the AMB universe as the more realistic storyline, though the AMV one may have been the more exciting storyline with the Fred Mirth angle. However,  I wonder what happened to him? Did he vanish from the face of the earth? Dangling plot device unanswered.


That little crossover between the two stories was interesting, but I had some confusion because Archie seemed to be all over the place as he and his other self switched places. Seeing Ambrose was nice, but having him as the "connection" between the two realities was strange at best, but I  guess the writers had to explain how the realities merged. I think I'm glad he settled in the AMB universe. He seemed far better a fit there.


I'm speeding it up a bit to the end, obviously with Archie's death as the main plotline. I noticed that the writers shrewdly "merged" both universes because I couldn't tell which one was which. Maybe it didn't matter, which was the point.


I've obviously skipped several points, which I hope others here will chime in on. What do you guys think? Thanks....

All About Archie / Story Jumps In Newest Archie Jumbo Digest
« on: February 16, 2018, 11:37:42 PM »
Anybody else got this? It's the one where The Gang are following Ronica around the world to ski resorts. I've seen this before in other Archie digests. Why doesn't ACP make sure they're giving us the stories in their whole form? Somebody's not editing right. I mean, we've seen words being misspelled and such, but splitting stories is outright incompetence....  >:(

All About Archie / "Unknown Artists"
« on: July 07, 2017, 11:36:46 PM »
I was reading two Archie stories in a row, and both had "unknown" under the artist and/or pencilled credit. How in the world could ACP not know who did the artwork? It just seems odd...

All About Archie / Quick Jughead Digest Questions....
« on: May 11, 2017, 02:10:48 PM »
...Are "Jughead" and "Jughead Jones" digests of the same title, or different ones? If so, did ACP add the last name to distinguish them from each other, and what were the differences? Just wondering, thanks....

... But Shazzan the cartoon has something in common with Archie. Can you guess what it is? No Googling! 😎


Hint: It's two in common. Answer by 3 p.m. today, unless someone here guesses beforehand....


PS: Yeah, I changed the message. Some of you might not be up right now at this time, so I'll expand the deadline...  ;D

All About Archie / Need A Little Printing Help....
« on: December 21, 2016, 06:07:35 PM »
Hey, guys. I'm trying to print a few pages from an old Josie and the Pussycats story that I love to download here, but can't off my Madefire site. There seems to be nothing that I can use to print then scan it. What say you?  :coolsmiley:  Thanks in advance....

All About Archie / Quick Josie/Sabrina Question....
« on: December 05, 2016, 05:47:50 PM »
Have we ever seen them in the same story? I'm thinking there was a recent one done by Dan Parent at a fashion show where Ronica's mother had a rival for Mr. Lodge's affections from long ago, and she was helping the rival with the fashion show. Every teen female in the Archieverse was practically there. However, that's the only one I recall. Anybody have a story here? Just wondering, thanks....

No, you're not seeing double with the topic. Dead serious, here, no soap or body wash. Welp. Trump's President-elect now. Our long national nightmare has just begun.  :uglystupid2: :knuppel2:  I want to know outside of Trump himself, who saw THIS coming? Discuss....

Body wash is so much better than soap in the shower!  :smitten: Where has it been all of my life?! It's so liquidy and foamy from the get go! Can't go back to the soap bar anymore, no sir!!  ;D

General Discussion / Yet Another 50th Anniversary Happening Today...
« on: September 10, 2016, 04:38:35 AM »
...Space Ghost made his debut on Saturday morning on CBS! The first of those classic Saturday morning non-animal heroes, Alex Toth's creation to me was great, and his rougue's gallery of villains  wasn't bad either. Couldn't get into Coast to Coast, though... ???
