  • DeCarlo Rules: @irishmoxie -- It's definitely complete. All six of the 1958-59 Sy Reit/Bob White original issues, plus the feature-length "Good Guys of the Galaxy" by Tom DeFalco & Fernando Ruiz from ARCHIE #655, and three 5-page digest shorts that guest-starred Cosmo -- and the complete first issue of the Ian Flynn/Tracy Yarley COSMO (2017) thrown in for good measure. It follows the same layout/format as the previous JUGHEAD'S TIME POLICE, even though that didn't carry the "Archie Comics Presents..." trade dress. Not a bad buy for $11.

  • Cosmo: Ah man....and I was worried I was the last enthusiast for ERB's stuff. I'm currently rereading my Dell Tarzan books. Really good fun! It took a while to complete that run.

  • DeCarlo Rules: ...Marvel's earlier JOHN CARTER, WARLORD OF MARS in there, so the DE Tarzan comics need to go in a different box, and SHEENA (also a recent DE title) and DC's RIMA THE JUNGLE GIRL will help fill up that box.
    June 11, 2018, 07:40:48 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Recently. DE's unauthorized LORD OF THE JUNGLE Tarzan adaptations (and its authorized THE GREATEST ADVENTURE) won't fit into my existing box of previous Tarzan comics from Gold Key, DC, and Dark Horse, so I have to start a new box. Logically these get filed with DE's unauthorized WARLORD OF MARS comics (including DEJAH THORIS) and their authorized JOHN CARTER, WARLORD OF MARS. But I also want to squeeze Marve;

  • DeCarlo Rules: Interesting. I tend not to group titles by publisher at all, if the characters were not created as work-for-hire (meaning the publisher is legally considered the 'author' of the character). Do they belong to that publisher's "universe" (assuming it has one)? There are some publishers like Dynamite Entertainment where the vast majority of the titles they publish are licensed, and thus were "inherited" from other publishers. Therefore it makes more sense to me to group them together in boxes with similar characters. Flash Gordon, The Phantom, and Mandrake comics (regardless of who the actual publisher was) go together in the same box because they're all classic adventure heroes licensed from Hearst Entertainment (formerly King Features Syndicate). Pulp fiction heroes like The Shadow, Doc Savage, and The Spider (regardless of the fact that the latter did not originate with the same publisher as the first two) also get grouped together. Space considerations allowing, Tarzan (and other Edgar Rice Burroughs adaptations) might share the same box with Sheena and Rima, but NOT with Ka-Zar, because he's a Marvel Universe character.

  • rusty: I do keep all Star Trek series together in their own section and all Star Wars books together.  I also keep all 2000AD titles together and manga books get their own section.  For titles that have switched publishers, I usually keep them all with the publisher that I identify them with the most.  Tarzan has been published by a variety of publishers, but I keep them with Dell/Gold Key.  Conan is starting to get a bit close with all the success Dark Horse has had, but I still identify Conan more with Marvel.

  • DeCarlo Rules: Believe it or not, I even have a box labeled "Pseudo-manga" that contains comics published by American companies and created by American creators like Astro Boy & Racer X (Now Comics), Battle of the Planets (Gold Key & Top Cow/Image), Captain Harlock (Malibu), Godzilla (Dark Horse) and Ultraman. I just want to keep those separate from the boxes of real translated manga in floppy comic format.

  • DeCarlo Rules: Well. the problem is when you get titles with licensed characters that aren't owned by the publisher. So if you collect Star Trek comics, you'd have different series published by Gold Key, Marvel, DC, and IDW (and I probably missed one in there). It doesn't make sense to me to put them in different boxes by publisher, but to each his own. Disney comics would be another example. There are even some instances where if I like a certain artist enough, I will put all his work regardless of publisher or characters into one box, like Paul Gulacy, Steve Rude, or Mike Allred (and file them chronologically from older to newer, rather than alphabetically). Those are examples where my interest in the creator far exceeds my relative interest in whatever characters are involved.

  • rusty: That makes sense.  There are many ways that people can file books.  What I do is file by company or category and then alphabetically within each section.  My first category is Richie Rich then Archie, then other Harvey titles, then Disney, then other humor/kids books, then by company (unless it is a company where I don't have very many books from them.  Star Trek and Star Wars each get their own section as well.  I will probably revamp a bit when I do my next major sort/merge.  The biggest section by far for me is DC.

  • DeCarlo Rules: I don't even file my comics alphabetically. I file them according to how closely they're related to other titles, but it's all dependent on the number of issues I have of any given title, and what will fit into a single box. Fpr ACP comics I just put all the short-run series (whether an actual miniseries or just a not particularly successful title) into one box. Even though some of those short run series star Jughead, and I could as easily file those together with the main JUGHEAD title in another box. For longer running ACP titles, "girl" titles are sorted into different boxes than "boy" titles. Eventually when I have enough issues of BETTY (and BETTY AND ME and BETTY'S DIARY) they'll get their own box, and VERONICA will get her own box.

  • rusty: I file Jughead under J and Reggie under R in all of their incarnations, though I do file the original Lois Lane and Jimmy Olsen books under S since that keeps them with the Superman books and also because they kept that title throughout their entire run.  If anyone wants to look up Jughead or Reggie in Overstreet, though, they will have to look under A for the early issues.

  • BettyReggie: I can't wait to get that Reggie book. It's coming out the day after my 39th Birthday.

All About Archie / Riverdale, I finally caught up
« on: December 04, 2017, 06:16:52 AM »
I recently decided to check out this show and first went to Netflix to watch season 1 and then caught up with season 2 with my On Demand and the CW app.  It's really a great show even though it completely twists all the Archie characters.  I actually think they could have done this show without the Archie skin and used completely original characters and locations.

As a long, long time Archie comics fan, there's one thing in the series that makes me really sad.  I'm a HUGE Archie and Betty shipper and it upset me how Betty got completely friendzoned by Archie in the first episode.  And then they paired Betty with Jughead (still really unsure how I feel about that, lol) and of course Archie and Veronica.  I really wanted to see Betty and Archie as a couple, especially after seeing what a fantastic Betty that Lili Reinhart is.  She's really amazing and perfectly how I always pictured Betty would be IRL.

My favorite Archie comic ever was the Archie Marries Betty branch of the Life With Archie marriage series.  I've never been happier reading Archie comics.  It was such a great story and I didn't want it to ever end.  I love Archie and Betty as a couple and have always rooted for Betty in my long relationship with Archie comics.

I still hope to see them as a couple, even if it's just for a little while, at some point in this series.  I think the writers gave us Betty/Archie fans a little hope when Kevin remarked that Betty and Archie are "endgame" in the first episode.  Maybe they are planning that for whenever they end the series.

And also, I've also though Veronica and Jughead would make a good and especially interesting couple.  In all my years of reading the comics, I've always felt that they may have secret feelings for each other.  IIRC, I think they even kissed a few times over the years.  I kinda wanted to see that happen in Archie marries Betty, instead of Veronica going with Reggie and Jug with Midge.  That would have made the series even better for me.

Why the hell are they turning Melody black?  Valerie is in the cast list, so why change Melody's race?  Really getting fed up with race changing when casting comic characters.  Leave them alone and don't change characters that have been around probably longer than anyone assoicated with the show has been.
It definitely doesn't look like this show is aiming to be anywhere near the traditional Archie Comic style and that seems to have a lot of people up in arms.

The thing about Archie is that everyone and their mother knows him heard of him or read a comic once in there life archie is the most famous comic book character that isn't a super hero. There is no need to change thing around to build a larger demographic because we all know the gang and Expect to see them how we remember them.
This show is going to confuse people and could even detour parents from showing there kids archie if they are all going to be meth heads.
I haven't heard the Meth Heads yet, but it wouldn't surprise me because the teen drama shows on today have at least one character it seems doing some sort of drugs.


You need to read this whole thread so you'll see the absurd things they are planning on doing with that show. Meth heads, Archie sleeping with Miss Grundy, Betty addicted to drugs, etc, etc,etc.

Are they really planning all that?  The race swapping is bad enough but this sounds like this series wants to be as "un-Archie-ish" as possible and will be a disaster to long time fans.

All About Archie / Re: Veronica Lodge: New To Riverdale?

Actually, Veronica was new to Riverdale in the original comics from the 40s as well.  Archie started originally with him, Betty and Jughead.
