  • DeCarlo Rules: Oh, the irony~! The proposed superhero revival that was too dark and edgy for ACP in 1989 (Spectrum Comics) had to wait 25 to get published (as Dark Circle)... and by then it was "Been there, done that. Nobody cares." I only hope their take-away from lack of response to all the dark superheroes is to make the new Mighty Crusaders title into a fun action-adventure comic book.

  • Vegan Jughead: Yes Mark.  192 pages.  Jumbos are 256, which was reduced from 288, which was reduced from 320.  The price continues to rise of course.  If you subscribe all issues are the same price.  I know you've had issues with subscriptions, though.

  • DeCarlo Rules: Definitely. I was a little worried when there was no B&V Friends solicitation for November... that means only 5 issues came out this year, instead of 6 -- but since you got a renewal notice, and there's an issue solicited for December, it looks like it will continue!  :)

  • DeCarlo Rules: I just got email confirmation from the ACP subscription department... not only is JUGHEAD AND ARCHIE digest ending, but ARCHIE'S FUNHOUSE digest is ending as well. Both subscriptions are automatically switched to the new ARCHIE AND ME digest, unless a subscriber requests a different digest title. No word on B&V FRIENDS digest so far; here's hoping "no news is good news" in this case.

Author Topic: Archie Horror is about to be rebranded as Archie's Madhouse  (Read 1623 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. 

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.
