  • DeCarlo Rules: @Tuxedo Mark - Well, they came out in comic shops, but I guess that doesn't help you. If you've got a regular bookstore (or supermarket) somewhere nearby, they should have the digest, anyway.

I have nothing to add to the discussion. I just wanna point out that I just noticed, for the first time, Betty has blossoms all over her bikini top. Probably got it from Cheryl. :coolsmiley:
Quote from: DeCarlo Rules on March 23, 2019, 01:31:59 pmCheryl may look off-model on that Kennedy bros cover (it looks like he's trying to draw the TV version of Cheryl),

Eh, I can't say I see anything of Mads in that. It just looks weird.

Quote from: DeCarlo Rules on March 23, 2019, 01:31:59 pmbut not nearly so much as Betty ( ... I mean, the blonde who I presume by default has to be Betty ... ), who is practically unrecognizable in facial expression or hairstyle as being Betty.

Hairstyle doesn't matter much for Betty. I've seen her with a ponytail, pigtails, hair down (yes, even in modern stories), and even short hair - all in the classic comics. And Riverdale has has with her hair down in addition to the ponytail. So that's not really an issue. What is an issue is she had apparently just gotten a whiff of Moose Mason's sweaty gym socks.

Yes, this trade paperback collection of a reprint series is all-new!

Quote from: Oldiesmann on March 21, 2019, 07:26:58 pm

The art on this cover is really weird. I dare say even Cheryl isn't attractive.

This week, I review "The New Archies" segment, "Horray for Hollywood" (the series finale).
Quote from: Oldiesmann on March 12, 2019, 09:23:48 pmIt'll be interesting to see what they do with it. I'm not too familiar with the source material but it's good to see them giving it a spotlight again. Hopefully it'll renew interest in the comics.

I have the tpb collection of the more recent reboot, so I'm more familiar with that than the 1980s comics (and I really like it). I was able to get a hold of the script for the pilot and have started reading it. Um, mild spoilers below for things that you'll learn within the first few minutes of the episode:

Katy's younger teen sister (Sis/Melissa/Mackenzie) doesn't seem to be in it, judging by the list of characters in front of the script.

K.O. the boxer, probably the most well-known of Katy's many boyfriends, is a main character, and they're together.

Gloria Granbilt, Katy's archrival model in the comics, is in it, but she's aged up to her 40s and is Katy's boss at Lacy's Department Store. (Katy is one of "Gloria's Girls".) Katy has a new, different archrival at work in the pilot.

The Cabot twins from the Josie comics, previously unused in this universe, are main characters. Alexandra stops in to shop at Lacy's early in the episode, and Katy has to work hard to keep her satisfied (although this comes mostly from Gloria, not Alexandra).

Pepper Smith from the pre-Pussycats Josie comics is also a main character, judging by the cast list, although I haven't gotten to her scenes yet.

Josie moves from Riverdale to NYC and joins the cast. She makes jokes about the bonkers nature of Riverdale. Katy Keene, by contrast, is much more grounded and normal.

One surprising thing that I noticed was the fact that the song selections are scripted. I always assumed they were chosen during post-production.
Saw this on my phone this morning! Can't wait!

This week, I review "Winter" from Betty and Veronica, Vol. 4, No. 3.
Quote from: DeCarlo Rules on March 03, 2019, 12:55:27 pmACP continues to confuse the $#!+ out of me. What the heck is bannering a certain few titles with the logo "Archie Forever" supposed to mean, anyway?

Just "Yeah, Archie forever, woo-hoo!" That's it. Nothing more complicated than that.

Quote from: DeCarlo Rules on March 03, 2019, 12:55:27 pmWhen both ARCHIE #700 and BETTY & VERONICA #1 (of 5) came out around the same time, with both of the series' characters beginning their Senior year of school at Riverdale High, I assumed it meant that these titles were vaguely related somehow, i.e. they shared a common universe. Except now it doesn't seem like that can be the case. It took the previously-numbered ARCHIE series from 2015 to 2018 (and 32 issues worth of comicbook-time) to get through their Junior year, and it doesn't look like time is moving all that differently now in the new Archie series re-numbered from #700 onwards. Yet Betty & Veronica, who started Senior year in their issue #1 around the same time as Archie 700, raced through two semesters in 5 issues and are already ready for Graduation Day. Meanwhile, Sabrina is doing the girlfriend-boyfriend thing with Archie over in his title, but in her own title, she just seems to be arriving in Riverdale for the first time (and is it just me, or does the cover image above make Sabrina look Asian?)... so it doesn't seem like any of these books can inhabit the same continuity.

Soon after the Jughead reboot started, I realized the various New Riverdale titles don't inhabit the same continuity. Each title stands on its own and doesn't count in regard to the others.

The only seeming exception is Jamie Rotante's statement that, in her mind, the B&V miniseries occurs in the future of the Archie title, but I've already found contradictions. So it's best to think of each title as its own separate continuity.

Oh, and Sabrina's moving to Greendale in her new miniseries, not Riverdale.
