I thought I posted about the " Riverdale " episode where they did a production of the musical bases on Stephen King's " Carrie ", but I searched for it and I could not find it :-[ .

This is also on Hottopic.com and every size is sold out except for Extra Large





Some nice Dan Parent head shots there. Maybe it's me, but doesn't it seem a little weird that the shirt design allows space for a dozen character head shots, but it's the same six characters, repeated twice? ... Rather than, as would seem to make a lot more sense to me, including Moose, Midge, Chuck, Nancy, Cheryl, and Dilton? I suppose they could have made the main cast's heads a little larger, and the supporting cast's heads a little smaller (and mixed up the pattern) to make the main characters faces stand out a little more.
I was thinking along the same lines except instead of Nancy, Chuck, and Cheryl, using Weatherbee, Grundy, and Pop Tate (or Mr. Lodge).  Then I sort of realized the Hot Topic demographic probably doesn't want to walk around with images of old folks on their shirts.   :(

It's interesting to see these figures, and I also wonder where the figures came from and exactly who was reporting their sales that would combine into the totals presented.  We know the monthly Diamond figures only reflect orders for a given period, so of course that's always been somewhat incomplete.


I'm not sure what my takeaway of all this is, but the snapshot appears to show digital sales have levelled (or declined) despite the increase in ownership of devices people could use to access digital content during the 2011-16 years.  I also suspect the increase in overall dollars by 2016 is more a reflection of higher per unit price than any sort of bump in readership.


Makes good food for thought regardless.

Hey Tuxedo Mark, just wanted to let you know I do read your reviews.  I rarely watch the animated stuff, but I do like seeing the screen shots and hearing your comments. Thanks for keeping your review page going all this time.  :)

I'm sure that if I can suss out who random anonymous people are that visit this forum with new usernames that a DNA test must have way more substance and validity to determine someone's background than whatever I'm able to glean from some typed words on a screen.

This made me recall a digest story that had an obviously phony name credited as the Letterer.  I wish I had made an actual note of it at the time, but forgot.  I do believe it was Fernando's art, but don't recall the story itself.   :P

I've been having the same problem.


Why don't you both put your "Shouts" in this thread?  I'm interested in what either of you have to say.

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 was certainly disappointed with the conclusion and the way it was handled.  Seemed like a cheap way to wrap up a storyline and I doubt this was how Hughes and/or the editor(s) planned this story to go.  Shades of the "Farewell" story arc from the previous B & V series.  I'll re-read the three issues in succession later to see if the story flows (reads) better.

As I've already posted, Hughes has stated he is off the book, so I wouldn't expect to see him again at ACP unless he's brought in to do a cover.

After nearly a year long wait, it was eh for me. He was trying to make it like a movie with the fire and all that. I really hope they relaunch the series with a new writer and artist. I would love to see it marketed to females this time.
I think "eh" is apt.  I was expecting more, so I'm obviously going to be a bit bent over the conclusion and bringing in Hughes to begin with as many predicted this pairing of Mr. Hughes with these characters wouldn't work out.   :P

How was this book not marketed towards females?  I must have missed all the beer, fisticuffs, and gratuitous shots of the gal's nether regions that would otherwise market this book to me, a manly man of many manly interests.

I'd go back to chopping logs but I just had my nails buffed at Annabelle's Tips and Toes Salon, so I'll just read some Simon & Kirby romance comics until my Conan Masterworks arrives from Amazon.

Betty & Veronica #4 is out when the Cubs win a second World Series or whenever Adam Hughes gets bored.
Mr. Hughes has already announced he's off the comic.  I'm not so sure the title even comes back anytime soon.

When does Archie officially lose the license?  Weeks, months, a year?  Just wonder if there's enough financial motivation to produce more issues if as Goldwater reportedly stated "(they) are trying to get away from Sonic because it's not really Archie"?


Does Sega have another publisher to turn to in the event ACP doesn't renew?

- Betty has gone from being LEFT-handed on #14 to RIGHT-handed on #15!
I think by then the CCA discouraged showing any left handed characters.

While not the same art, it seems Archie's Rival Reggie #14  and #15 (albeit nine years apart) should be included here.
