Saw this on my phone this morning! Can't wait!
This week, I review "Winter" from Betty and Veronica, Vol. 4, No. 3.

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.
This week, I review "The New Archies" episode, "Take My Butler, Please".
I review "It's in Her Kiss" from Cheryl Blossom, No. 23.
I review "Taking Care of Business" from B&V #257.
I review "Fall" from Betty and Veronica, Vol. 4, No. 2.
I review "Faith, Hope and Cheryl!" from Cheryl Blossom Special, No. 2.
I review "Brotherly Love" from Cheryl Blossom, No. 22.
I review "Wild Things" from Riverdale, No. 3.

Yes, my post was indeed inspired by the Beloit College Mindset List, but I've gone far beyond it, trying to pin down a day-by-day series of events that the gang would have experienced.
By the way, I'm 40.
This week, I review the first issue of the new "Betty & Veronica" miniseries.

This was actually a problem when I was ordering physical comics online from TFAW. If I waited a week or two after an issue came out in order to order multiple titles together and save on shipping, well, there was a chance that that title would no longer be available, so I was forced to order single issues weekly and pay for shipping each time. This resulted in numerous charges on my credit card bill, and I had to make a special trip to the bank once per month to pay it off. I eventually decided it wasn't worth it. In addition to physical comics, I also gave up using my credit card. Yeah, that means I have to buy an Amazon gift card every so often, but it's a lot more convenient, saving me money, a monthly trip to the bank, and a monthly bill in the mail.
As for ChAoS, I recently read an article where the person complained about the filler, due to the episodes approaching one hour in length. Yeah, s/he totally has a point. Even with only ten episodes in a season, it sometimes feels like the series is spinning its wheels. I'm not sure what the solution is. Maybe ten 30-minute episodes?

I was paying a lot in shipping for physical comics, because there are no physical comic shops near me and haven't been in years (the only one that comes up in a search is 18 miles away, in the next county). So I quit physical comics in December of 2016, switched to digital, and haven't looked back.
As for the price of digital comics, well, I think $3.99 is a bit too much, regardless of whether it's digital or physical. But does anyone know how much that Archie pays the writers, artists, and letterers per issue? The $3.99 price might make some sense in terms of a way to recoup costs.
For me, it's always more convenient to read something digitally, because I'm constantly parked in front of my computer until my mom goes to bed, so it's just a matter of opening it up in my Kindle for PC program.

I haven't been much of a reader (of books) historically, but, last year, I decided to start reading ebooks, and I've been keeping track of my progress on Goodreads:
Usually, I read 2-3 books at a time but only a chapter of each per day.
As for comics, I gave away a ton of unread non-Archie comics to a thrift store yesterday. If I ever feel like reading comics, I just buy the Kindle version (and it's usually an Archie).
