  • 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.

  • 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.

Riverdale brought me here
« on: February 18, 2017, 02:25:56 PM »
Hi, I'm Kaitlyn and I am 18 years old and I started watching the new Riverdale series on the CW a few weeks ago. Before I start with my introduction though I want to say I lurked this forum and saw that many either hate the show or love it. I just want to make it clear that this thread is not going to be about the show or turn in a debate about hating or liking the show. It simply is what brought me to here and got me to pick up 3 Archie Jumbo Comics to read. So please don't bring that here. OK, like I said I picked up 3 Archie Jumbo Comics which seemed liked the best bang for my buck and I was very happy with what I have read. The comics I bought were Jughead and Archie #25, Archie #276, and Betty and Veronica #250. So my question to the more seasoned readers out there is it better for me to continue to pick these up periodically at my local bookstore or maybe get a subscription for Jumbo comics directly from Archie comics?

It's cheaper to get a subscription from archiecomics.com but they often deliver them late or not at all. I think it's close to 50% off cover price so most people just live with that.


I prefer to get my digests from Kindle or Comixology but I really only buy B&V Friends (my personal fav) and Betty and Veronica. Sometimes I get the other digests if someone comments on here that it has a particularly good lead story or is a well put together collection of stories.

That is quite the % off, but not getting them at all then really you aren't saving anything. :) Since I think I am going to just stick with the Jumbo Digest since it has the most material of what I saw on the shelves I will just get them at my local bookstore and pay a little extra. Thanks for the reply. Love your username by the way. I am also Irish. Well not from Ireland, but my ancestors are from Ireland.

I've heard nothing but complaints from those who get subscriptions from Archie.


I have a local comic book shop that does pull-lists. I had the digests pulled for me and that worked out really well. Our local Barnes & Noble gets copies of the digests also. Maybe that would be an option for you?

Barnes and Noble is the bookstore in my area. I think that just might be the way to go. I frequent there at least once every 2 weeks so I can periodically keep checking for the Jumbo comics.
