  • DeCarlo Rules: What I don't understand is why they're trying to discourage subscriptions to B&V FRIENDS Jumbo digest. It's been published at 10 times per year frequency for the last 3 years -- just like the other B&V jumbo digest. So if they're both published just as often, why do they offer a choice of 10 issue or 20 issue subscriptions for BETTY & VERONICA, but only a 6 issue subscription for B&V FRIENDS? You can get a 12-issue subscription to B&V FRIENDS on the website, but if I remember correctly, the printed ad for subs only offers the 6-issue sub option. Why isn't it the same option as the other digests (10 issues or 20 issues), if they're all published 10 times a year? And they ARE.

  • Tuxedo Mark: Just looked at Archie Comics' subsciption page. Archie Meets Batman '66 is a six-issue miniseries. Archie 1941 is a five-issue miniseries. There's a six-issue subscription for Betty and Veronica: Friends Forever and Vixens (surprisingly; might get transferred to the new B&V title) and a twelve-issue subscription for Riverdale. Riverdale Digest isn't listed, so it looks like it's been cancelled.

  • CAPalace: I'm a woman btw and I'm just so sick of the blatant anti-men thing going on in comics these days. It's not doing women any favors either. :/

  • CAPalace: They're banking on Archie 700 to sell a lot because "lol a new number wow lol" and it will for the first issue but it'll just go back to the average/poor numbers it had before. And YOU KNOW with that writer on B+V it's going to turn into an anti-men, oooh girl power lol violence against men and demeaning men is feminism and fun lol lol Good luck. I'll stick to Ebay to find the DeCarlo stuff thanks.

  • Tuxedo Mark: I'm looking forward to the new B&V series. Personally, I think that previous B&V series by what's-his-name was way worse than anything that Rotante wrote on Vixens.
    July 09, 2018, 08:43:47 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: So, so predictable... they love to exploit NUMBERS, whether it's a single digit (1 or 0) or a triple-digit ending in 00. Good lord, I can't believe they're actually giving Jamie Rotante ANOTHER B&V series to write ruin! She is the worst I've read -- although it's a tough call, Marguerite Bennett was pretty horrible as well. Nick Spencer can actually be quite good as a writer... or pretty bad, depending on the character and the direction. He was great on ANT-MAN and SUPERIOR FOES OF SPIDER-MAN (both books that had a strong humorous subtext), and not so hot on CAPTAIN AMERICA and THE AVENGERS. And he's he new writer on (yet another) first issue of THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, so I wouldn't guess the ARCHIE gig will last. ACP could probably only afford to hire him for that ONE issue, #700.

  • Vegan Jughead: ARCHIE isn't on hiatus officially. The last official word from Archie Comics is that there is "big news about the flagship ARCHIE title" coming up after the "1941" miniseries. We'll see. RIVERDALE is supposed to come back early '19 after the TV show returns.

  • DeCarlo Rules: I guess there's still THE HUNGER and VAMPIRONICA, but they're still so new that it's hard to think of them as "ongoing".
    July 05, 2018, 12:14:16 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: So both ARCHIE and RIVERDALE are "on hiatus"? That means ACP has no ongoing floppy comic titles. Not a good sign. Good thing they still have the digests going (knock on wood).

Author Topic: Archie Horror is about to be rebranded as Archie's Madhouse  (Read 2275 times)

Guys,You're not going to believe this but when I read the news about the announcement that Jughead:The Hunger the Archie Horror one shot is about to be a full series and is about to debut on Halloween this year.:http://io9.gizmodo.com/werewolf-jughead-will-return-for-his-own-ongoing-comic-1796810743

I discovered the brand logo that Archie Comic is about to unofficially 'unannounce'  that they are going to  rebrand Archie Horror as Archie's Madhouse which was named after the surreal science fiction horror comedy anthology series from 1959 to 1982.


And I have proof ,Here is the Archie Horror logo:





and here is the new name for Archie's Horror Brand 'Archie's Madhouse'





What do you think?Do you believe that Archie Horror is about to be rebranded as Archie's Madhouse

Vegan Jughead

I have no idea but since Jughead: The Hunger will be drawn by Pat and Tim Kennedy instead of Hack or Francavilla, it has a decent shot at actually sticking to a regular publishing schedule. 

Captain Jetpack

Nope-nope-nope.
Don't believe it for a second.

As long as it isn't written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa. That probably has more to do with the 2-issues a year releases of AWA and ChAoS than Hack and Francavilla.

Yeah,so true and it will be drawn realistically unlike what is drawn from Life with Archie the married life

Nope-nope-nope.Don't believe it for a second. :tickedoff: :uglystupid2:


Well,If Jughead:The hunger is not a Archie Horror title then it should have been a Black comedy horror series with a different brand under Archie's Madhouse making it a horror comedy series like the series which is named after but since it doesn't mention about.I still think Archie Horror will be renamed as Archie's Madhouse.

Which in other words bimonthly

Bi-monthly is every 2 months, terrence. Not even close. Twice a year is bi-annually. But that would be if either of those two titles came out twice a year. Last I checked, it was more like both AWA and ChAoS were coming out ONCE a year. What I really meant was that together, there are only about 2 issues of Archie Horror titles released every year -- one issue of AWA, and one of ChAoS.

Woah,No kidding! It's  really going to take a really long time to wait for another issue or storyarc of the series that it made me wonder if they should have released each storyarc of both Jughead:The hunger,chilling adventures of Sabrina and Afterlife with Archie as Graphic novels since you said it is Bi-annually.

DeCarlo Rules

It seems to me that if there is a problem getting out issues of Jughead: The Hunger on a timely basis, then they should not even start publishing it. There should be no excuses, since the writer and artists have proven they can turn out pages on a normal deadline schedule.

If there turns out to be any holdup in putting out regular issues, you'll know that the logjam is a result of "no cash flow".

Good point

Hopefully they get a surplus in cash to release new titles, or rebooted ones, such as the actual "Archie's Madhouse", or maybe a new darker "Cosmo" series.

I like the idea .. just hope titles are regular

They should just do a Little Archie horror comic, since the original is probably the "classic Archie" title that arguably came closest to that genre in its original incarnation.

Yeah a revival of Madhouse in the 'madhouse' brand (aka Archie Horror) will become a black comedy anthology series and as for Cosmo I can deal with that becoming a black comedy series in a realistic environment but how will they make  a funny alien fit to the mature audience with dark humour

Yeah,I hope so too.

Um ,I don't think this should happen since it is aimed for younger audience and is considered lighter as shown with its revival few months ago.But if it is revived it will be similar to Goosebumps comics from IDW

Bob Bolling and Dexter Taylor got away with stuff when they were doing LITTLE ARCHIE that would be inconceivable in a comic marketed to young kids today. Some of those stories really WERE pretty horrific, at least by the standards of a "kids comic". Take a look at this cover for LA #37 (mildly altered here by me, but not the actual drawing), which is not TOO far off the kind of stuff EC Comics was publishing a decade earlier:

Yeah,But it was still light hearted though and if this series is part of Archie's madhouse brand then it will a black comedy light hearted kid horror comic similar to goosebumps.
