It's actually pretty amazing the reaction I am getting outside of Archie fandom.
There's a forum over at CGC comics where some pretty "heavy hitter" collectors hang-out.  We're talking about they type of collector that posts things like "only 5 more Timely books and I have them all".....crazy stuff.

Anyhow - there is a thread there where folks can post Archie covers they like.  Plenty of older material.  I posted B&V Spectacular #85 and got some comments that were very positive.

People really LIKE this comic.  Obviously, they should also BUY more copies, but I think this will happen in time.

The truth is - this title didn't get it's current format change all that long ago.  Issue #69 to be exact.  This means that if they cancel at issue #90 - the new format only had a 21 issue run.  Not very much.

I really hope Archie Comics will see the fans like this book and will give it another 10 issues to #100 at the least.
No matter where I go, there I am.  Creepy.

I've written them an e-mail as well as a separate note on the Facebook group.

The group has hit 70 people, so I am going to send them a note tomorrow or Friday to update them.

I encourage anyone interested in this book continuing to write.  They will take you seriously!  I'm going for any type of win here - 10 more issues, digest, magazine size....something!

I don't know anyone who reads it, but I hate to see it canceled as I'm sure a lot of young teen girls love it. Great to see the group picking up steam. I'm in there now (PS - Frank and Fernando, you have friend requests ;)). Will comment on it tomorrow when I'm more awake.

I just mentioned this over at the Facebook page but I thought it'd be worth bringing it up here too.

Last week when I mentioned the Save Betty & Veronica Spectacular Facebook page up at the Archie offices, I was told the book had missed being spared from cancellation by only a few hundred copies. That isn't really an insurmountable number. For example, the Facebook page has eighty-five members, if each member bought ten copies a piece of the remaining issues that would be eight-hundred and fifty copies! That would certainly get noticed up at the offices!

Come on! Let's make B&VSpec the Spider Girl of Archie Comics!

If that's honestly going to get noticed at Archie Comics, then I'll have no problem shelling out some extra money to buy 10 more copies on my next trip to my LCS.

This is actually great news and I hope it comes to pass.  I really don't expect everyone to buy 10 copies in this tough economic times, but I will!

On the Facebook page, I stated that I think this book can make it on it's own with just a little more time - 10 issues.  So, my motto is 10 for 10!

I'll plan on giving the extras I get away as gifts and at Halloween next year.

Okay - I've done my bit and asked for 10 copies a month on this book.  Hopefully, this will come to pass.  I know a lot of people that I can hand a copy to that would appreciate it - so it works for me. 

Again - I also understand that not everyone can do this - even just buying one copy a month helps!
