While I was horrified by the original trailer for Riverdale, I'm glad to see it becoming popular and gaining a new audience. I haven't watched the full series but have enjoyed watching YT clips of Betty/Jughead.

If they're doing a superhero crossover, I'd like to see a gritty reboot of (Netflix) The Punisher Meets (WB) Archie

Yep, Photoshop actions are basically preset edits. For me, though, the time-consuming part can't be done with actions (i.e. cleaning up a dirty page), so I wouldn't be saving too much time.
Photoshop keeps crashing my computer...I just want to be finished with this little "project"
Anyways, that's enough derailing SAGG's thread

Heck, I just use my snipping tool (thanks again, DR), and then scan them. I really don't think too much about the yellowing of the page or such. To me, it's the aging effect that naturally occurs to old comics. I don't worry about it myself...
I'm scanning as PNG files (~20-30 MB per page). I've been placing heavy coffeetable books over the comics when scanning to try to "iron out the wrinkles". Some are so badly water-damaged that probably only cutting the individual pages out would create a good-quality image (and I'm not willing to do that).
At this point I think I'm only going to edit the stories where the color on the page is consistent (1989 comics and later). It's gonna be way too much time and effort cleaning up the older stories, and I don't think I'll be satisfied with the results unless I go in and recolor those myself, which...no.

Yeah, you're probably right. A lot of my older Archies are so dirty though lol.
Have to cut down my Archie collection from 250 to 90. I've been trying to scan some stories from old digests and the pages always look so yellow and God forbid that the binding causes the pages to crease. Been trying to clean them up in Photoshop but I oversaturate the colors too much...any tips on scanning would be appreciated!
Wait...Reggie's Asian?! Maybe I should check this show out, new Reggie is fine...

No citation, the digest is from the 90s. I feel like I've seen this comic before in another digest I own, but may just be imagining it...
Where is this from? I'd like to read this story lol

Okay. I just thought it was funny because it looks nothing like Lucey's work and isn't even proportional to the rest of his body. Nevermind then.

Look at Archie's head.
I know they sometimes update older comics when they put them in newer digests (e.g. change dates, prices, pop culture figures), but this is ridiculous. Why would they do this?
I scanned this from B&V Double Digest #34.
Juggie and Sabrina? Oh, I can dig that! I never liked Harvey much and I like Ethel better with Moose. Those covers are really nice.
