  • Jabroniville: Oh yeah, and Avatarland is probably costing them a pretty penny. I still wonder about that one... Avatar could turn out to be a total fad. People don't even really talk about it any more. Of course, the same could be said about "Frozen" in a couple years.

  • Jabroniville: Using the same ride lay-out is definitely lazy- I didn't know that part. I assumed they'd be fixing up a lot more stuff than that. But "Cloning" rides is pretty common- Universal's cloning all their Harry Potter stuff over in California, plus their Simpsons stuff.

  • B-ko Daitokuji: an another example of Disney being cheap, the Little Mermaid ride was a clone to save on R&D expenses

  • B-ko Daitokuji: they're using the same ride lay-out, so it's hardly a new ride for Frozen, they're being cheap, if it was Universal, they would have built an entire land for it, I don't know I'd rather still have the trolls and the polar bear instead of a talking snowman, they'd have to have them making out like the Japanese fanart for me to think it's an improvement lol

  • Jabroniville: But yes, I can definitely see why Disney Parks fans are getting annoyed with Disney for keeping most things the same, while Universal is building entirely new lands. I think a Frozen ride is a step in the right direction in fixing that. Plus the rumored "Star Wars Land" that people keep talking about.

  • Jabroniville: I dunno about Disney not spending enough $ on the parks- New Fantasyland and the Dwarf Coaster cost like $2 billion or something. I agree that a movie that's only "Norway-inspired" is an odd fit for The World Showcase, but then Epcot's been losing it's theme for years.

  • B-ko Daitokuji: Disney is also getting cheap, if the can't invest in a new ride for Frozen, they are obivoulsy experiencing corporate mismanagement, people are kind of right when they describe WDW as beomcing "Waltmarized" while Universal is willing to spend money every year

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!
