  • DeCarlo Rules: @Kallell - Right. That's what I meant. The solicitations that came OUT for the months of November, December, and January... as Diamond Comics Distribution dates their catalogs. And those ACP comics digests solicited in those catalogs would indeed have shipping dates in the months of January, February, and March.  Which means ALL the issues of Archie, World of Archie, Betty and Veronica, and B & V Friends in those solicitations are JUMBO COMICS digests. Unlike those titles, Riverdale Comics Digest, Marvel Comics Digest, and Archie and Me Comics Digest haven't varied in their format from one issue to the next.

  • Archie Comics Collector(Kalell): Very interesting observation DeCarlo Rules. Actually December 2017 was the last month in which there was still three Digest formats: Annual, Comics Double Digest and a Jumbo Comics Digest. As I looked through Jan, Feb and March solicits it seems that the main two formats are Comics Digest 128 pager: Archie and Me and the rest of the main Archie Digests will just be Jumbo Comics Digest 192 pagers. They seem to be doing away with the Annuals and Comics Double Digests for now.
    January 15, 2018, 11:41:08 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Looking back through the ACP solicitations from November, December and January, it just dawned on me that EVERY regular digest title solicted (except for Archie and Me Comics Digest, Riverdale Comics Digest, and Marvel Comics Digest) is a JUMBO COMICS Digest (192 pages). Are Jumbo Comics Digests the new permanent format? It sure looks that way.

B&V story where they meet a genie?
« on: May 29, 2016, 06:02:17 PM »
I know that there's a new "classic" style B&V story appearing in June's B&V Double Digest, where they meet a genie, called "Sand-Wishes".  It made me wonder if there was any other B&V stories where the girls meet a genie.  I mean there's been so many versions of this type of story in all forms of media, they've had to have had this happen before at some point, right?

There's a story called Genie Hi-Jinx on Betty and Veronica Spectacular #3 (also reprinted in B&V DD #113)where Betty and Veronica have just seen a movie called "Aladdin, That Arabian Dude" and they they see an old lamp at an antiques shop and Veronica likes it because it reminds her of the movie, so she buys it. They take it home and she rubs the lamp and out comes a genie named Horace. Anyway, Veronica wishes to have Archie as her servant to do everything she says (and to me that is a wasted wish since Archie already is her servant ::) ), so Betty goes to the antique shop and buys another lamp and out comes a female genie and of course Betty wishes to have Archie, and there starts a war of zapping and re-zapping Archie from one girl to the other.

That story sounds hilarious!  I'll have to buy that digest.  It's too good to pass up!  Thanks, 60sBettyandReggie

It is a funny story! And I found it funny that there is also another story in that same Double Digest and in the BV Spectacular where the girls are going to sell their lamps at the Riverdale High Flea Market  ;D  That story is not about the lamps anymore, but they do mention them at the beginning.

I wonder if Archie Comics did that on purpose or if they're trying to mess with the readers to see is we'd notice the connection?  Either way, I can't wait to read it!

I think it was both-on purpose for us to notice the connection. They even wrote the word "lamps" in bold letters. ;)

There’s a Josie and the Pussycat’s story about a genie as well — and I’m sure I remember a Sabrina one too …

The Betty Cooper, Betty Cooper stories always sounded so epic.  It's hard to believe that they were part of classic Archie.  Or even never made into a current "New Riverdale" or "Archie Horror" series.

I wouldn't rule out seeing similar elements crop up on RIVERDALE. Might be tough to recognize given all the arbitrary changes in character and relationships...  Probably no genies, though. But maybe some of the darker/weirder aspects of BCBC.

Cruising old digests tonight I found another genie story called "Power Failure" featuring Betty and a genie. He doesn't look like a stereotypical Aladdin genie and he pops out of a flashlight to grant wishes. His name is ironically "Flash." It's from Betty and Veronica Annual Digest #16 but the art looks 1960's. I haven't seen it on comics.org so I'll post it up on there.
