  • 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).

  • 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.

Hello, Citizens of Riverdale!
« on: July 23, 2017, 02:07:47 pm »
Hi everyone! I'm an 18 year old guy from Dallas, TX! I've visited this website several times over the years (I'm 18), but finally decided to make an account. I first stumbled upon Archie around 7 years ago when my mom brought a box filled with them home that she found by the side of the road, and I've been hooked ever since! Yesterday I just finished Riverdale Season 1, which I enjoyed but had some problems with (still going to see season 2 though!)

General info:
My favorite comics are the Frank Doyle/Harry Lucey ones hands down, but Samm Schwartz isn't far behind.
I do read the "New Riverdale" comics, but feel that the reason Archie is so good is because of the comedy. Thus I think that dramatic events such as Over the Edge would have more of an impact if the new Archie was more lighthearted, rather than mostly serious.

Enjoyed Riverdale but thought the killer was disappointing. Also - I really believe that an "Archie's Weird Mysteries" version of Riverdale could work super well if they play their cards right and slowly made the series supernatural. They could introduce Sabrina, and then have some Weird Mysteries throwback episodes if they wanted to, which I would love!

That's about all for me! Can't wait to add to some of these threads!

Oh, and Jughead is the best character of course!

Well, he's the best male character. Hands down. Not even close. I think I'd rate the Boldman/Lindsey version as #1, with a tie for 2nd place between Samm Schwartz and Fernando Ruiz. All three versions are slightly different characters. Dan Parent's version would rate higher probably, if he'd done more Jughead solo stories, but I haven't seen all that many crop up. I don't know what I'm going to do now that JUGHEAD & ARCHIE digest is cancelled. Probably have to start buying more back issues, if I can find them.

What kind of monster tosses a box of Archie Comics on the side of the road?

It's crazy, I know! There were like 20-30 digests in the box, and they decided to just throw them all away!

I'm trying to visualize some sort of situation where they were bungee'd to some roof or trunk rack on a car (or maybe a motorcycle or scooter?), but even that seems pretty unlikely...

Yeah, my guess was that it was a "parents threw it out after the kids grew up" kind of situation, but who knows.

I guess when you said "found by the side of the road" I was visualizing something like... by the side of the road out in the middle of nowhere. I guess if the road was in front of a house, and the curb is where you'd put out garbage for pickup, then the "parents threw them out" theory makes the most sense.

Yeah it wasn't as strange as finding them abandoned in a field or something... Now that would be really weird!

Well, Texas is really big. So in my imagination, at least, that includes a lot of miles of roads that don't run past the front lawns of houses, where boxes could fall off the back of pickup trucks or something like that.

Point taken. I've never been to Dallas, and so I don't have much of a mental image of that city, particularly what a typical residential area looks like. Just what I tend to see on TV shows, which is like a helicopter flyover of the downtown area.

Haha yeah it's a fairly boring city, so by not visiting you're not missing out on much
