Finally got around to the newish Sabrina series by Kelly Thompson. I really liked it. Anyone else read it or the sequel series Something Wicked?

Love Tokyo Tarareba Girls! Did you like it?
[...] Mixed feelings. There is something I like about it, but it does seem weirdly 30-something angsty, and as a result of that feels somewhat emotionally exhausting to read.
The other thing I noted here is that while on the one hand, the author wants to maintain a certain degree of realism/verisimilitude, on the other hand, she's cast her main character into a role as the heroine of the kind of romantic soap-opera (with a much younger male model pursuing her), which is the exact opposite of a realistic scenario -- it's exactly the romantic fantasy that is being critiqued (via the screenplays of the main character as a writer). It's confusing to me whether the author has some ultimate purpose in these clashing elements, or if it's more of a commercial concession to the perceived audience, sort of a "have your cake and eat it too" thing.

None. I've decided to give up reading comics. It's gotten too expensive.

ARCHIE MEETS BATMAN '66 #1 (of 6)

THE GOOD NEWS: Betty and Veronica Friends Forever #1 - At the Movies is out this week.
THE BAD NEWS: Well... First, let me ask you a question. How many of you happened to read the last couple of issues of B&V Friends Jumbo Comics Digest, and Betty and Veronica Jumbo Comics Digest? If you didn't read them, then I guess for you there's NO bad news, so forget I mentioned anything.
For everyone who did read those digests, though...
Here are the stories in Betty and Veronica Friends Forever #1 - At the Movies :
1. "Riot on the Set" (from B&V Friends Jumbo Comics Digest #259, April 2018)
2. "Movie Mix-Up" (from Betty and Veronica Jumbo Comics Digest #261, April 2018)
3. "Extra Disastrous" (from B&V Friends Jumbo Comics Digest #260, May 2018)
4. "An Un-Living Doll" (from Betty and Veronica Jumbo Comics Digest #262, June 2018)
So, yeah... I'm disappointed.
I can't say I didn't have my suspicions, and I almost mentioned it when I noticed (after B&VFF #1 had been announced with an "At the Movies" theme) that the stories in the recent digests almost seemed like they could have fit right in with the newly-solicited $2.99 floppy comic. And then, I was wondering... if they can't sell enough copies to make money off a $3.99 classic Archie floppy comic book, then how can they possibly make any money off a comic book which sells for $1 less per copy?
I don't want to put words in irishmoxie's mouth or presume to speak for her, but I feel pretty sure she'd say "Boo!" to this.

Yay digital. I think I will order it then.
Didn't you mention another magazine that had Archie creator or Dan Parent interviews in it? Back Issue?
That would be COMIC BOOK CREATOR Magazine #16, published last year.
From the very same publisher (TwoMorrows), and available as a digital download right NOW!
One nice thing about the TwoMorrows magazines for digital readers is that they're only $4.95, as opposed to the usual printed magazine which costs $8.95 (but if you buy the print magazine direct from TwoMorrows they throw in a free copy of the digital download, gratis!) And since BACK ISSUE #107 is still a pre-order (for a September 2018 release), TwoMorrows is offering it at the pre-order price of 15% off the regular $8.95 cover price ($7.61) -- and you still get the FREE digital copy as well, so if you buy the print magazine you get the magazine for only $2.66 more than you'd pay for the digital download by itself.

Sometimes its really funny how they try to force the most random things from the comics into the script. For example "Jingle Jangle" (The song by the Archies) is now the term for a pixie-stick type drug. Pretty hilarious how they forced that one in.
