  • DeCarlo Rules: It's crazy that ACP hasn't reprinted those 2 issues as a double-size one-shot. Or the lead story in a TP collection of vampire stories (including "Twilite" and others).

  • irishmoxie: That's crazy about those Betty and Veronica issues being worth so much. They're only about 6 years old. I'm pretty sure I have copies of them.

  • DeCarlo Rules: On a relatated note, the real FIRST Vampironica appeared in Larry Welz' underground comic Cherry Poptart #1 [link]. That can be had right now, CGCed at 9.4, at the Buy-It-Now price of $280 on ebay. Although the book had several subsequent printings, only the first printing ($2 cover price) contains the Vampironica story. Much, much scarcer than B&V #261 & 262, but then far fewer people seem to be aware of its existence. It may not be the same Vampironica as the one that appears in her own comic book from ACP, but then you can easily make the argument that neither is the Vampironica from B&V 261-262.

  • rusty: Crazy.  I obviously missed that back then.
    November 03, 2018, 10:06:11 pm
  • DeCarlo Rules: Yes, I mentioned this a while back somewhere around the time Vampironica #1 was first solicted or shipped. I even mentioned it to Dan Parent and told him if he still had copies he should get them CGC'ed.
    November 03, 2018, 04:33:03 pm
  • rusty: Apparently Betty and Veronica #261 and 262 (1987 series) are popular now due to Vampironica.  Somebody actually purchased a copy of #261 for $299 on ebay recently.

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.
