Curious. In the second comic, DeCarlo drew this for another comic book publisher in 1966? He was making his mark in ACP then, yet they let him do some freelancing? 🤔

I'm aiming for more generalized comics in the mainstream, like DC or Marvel. Many old titles come out on occasion. As for Archie, it's old digests that can be borrowed as well...Quote from: SAGG on April 14, 2018, 04:57:46 am
Couldn't find the other two, but at least it has one....

Quote from: DeCarlo Rules on April 14, 2018, 01:11:22 amWhen I want to read any old comics on Comixology, I use the Unlimited subscription package. When I finish a book, I just return it. Very practical for me....Quote from: SAGG on April 13, 2018, 07:44:41 pm
Quote from: DeCarlo Rules on April 12, 2018, 02:33:22 amQuick question, DR: Where are you getting these comics, from print, digital, or both?
Quote from: Tuxedo Mark on April 11, 2018, 02:39:50 pmI'd figure her parents would foot the bill. When they found out her condition, of course they would come to her aid. She's their daughter....Quote from: DeCarlo Rules on April 09, 2018, 07:11:21 pm
I glanced at bits and pieces of LWA, but I just had the time to read it from the beginning. When I saw the volumes, I started. That's how I approach reading older comics. I get the whole thing in a major storyline at one time.... 😁
And what happened to Miss Grundy in the AMV universe? She died in the AMB universe, but I didn't see her at all in the other one. I guess the writers had AMB be Riverdale High-centric for the AMB universe, and deliberately Riverdale City-centric in the AMV universe. So many loose threads remain, with Mirth and that woman with him. Hey, maybe we can get Mr. Ruiz to fill in the blanks, since he did one of the stories! Was the ending rushed, or something? Also, Bella Beazley was the scheming redhead in the AMB universe, while Cheryl Blossom was the now-sympathetic redhead in the AMV universe.
Also again, did anyone notice that the ending of LWA coincided with the beginning of the "new" Archie? I think LWA was the "farewell" for Classic Archie (outside of the new stories for the digests), and it fulfilled the "what if" scenario of fans wondering what it would look like if Archie and his friends grew up and dealt with the Real World. Hey, DR, everybody, which story did you prefer? AMV? AMB?
I just finished reading it through Comixology in the volumes. I'd recommend using the Unlimited service to just "borrow" a published book, then when you finish it, "return" it. You'd pay a monthly fee. I think it's worth it, but I digress. On to the story, or in this case, stories, since there are two of them, with Archie either marrying Betty (AMB) or Veronica (AMV).
Both universes had good stories in the soap opera style, if you're into that sort of thing. LWA was unique in that it showed The Gang & Co. all as adults, not as a dream, but as actual, real stories. I found myself referring the AMB universe as the more realistic storyline, though the AMV one may have been the more exciting storyline with the Fred Mirth angle. However, I wonder what happened to him? Did he vanish from the face of the earth? Dangling plot device unanswered.
That little crossover between the two stories was interesting, but I had some confusion because Archie seemed to be all over the place as he and his other self switched places. Seeing Ambrose was nice, but having him as the "connection" between the two realities was strange at best, but I guess the writers had to explain how the realities merged. I think I'm glad he settled in the AMB universe. He seemed far better a fit there.
I'm speeding it up a bit to the end, obviously with Archie's death as the main plotline. I noticed that the writers shrewdly "merged" both universes because I couldn't tell which one was which. Maybe it didn't matter, which was the point.
I've obviously skipped several points, which I hope others here will chime in on. What do you guys think? Thanks....
...Is available on Comixology. However, 99 cents for only 11 pages? No way, pass....
Quote from: DeCarlo Rules on March 05, 2018, 10:59:40 pmMy apologies, DR. Thank you for the correction. I got the two mixed up. Why did I do that?Quote from: SAGG on March 05, 2018, 01:32:09 pm
HUGE slew of stories added to my third album! B & V, Miss Grundy, Ronica, an Archie one, and a Pat Kennedy one that has a several-part Josie and the Pussycats story! be sure to use the A-Z direction sort in the lower right corner! Enjoy!
Quote from: DeCarlo Rules on February 20, 2018, 03:47:26 amI think you'd like Black Panther, DR. It's VERY good. I saw it Monday....Quote from: gillibean on February 19, 2018, 09:47:44 pmI can feel that it was not made for an Archie comics fan. I'm not saying it has to be perfect for the fans, but I wish it could be like marvel, where ANYONE can enjoy the movies/shows they put out.
