Archie June 2018 Solicitations
« on: March 19, 2018, 06:26:46 PM »
Looking forward to the Archie At Riverdale High trade paperback and for some reason, despite not being all that interested, I'm thinking of picking up Vampironica after seeing #3 in this solicit.

Just curious why #3, presuming from what you've said that you didn't pick up #1?

Or for that matter, what about THE HUNGER made you want to read that (which you liked, IIRC) "despite not being all that interested" in VAMPIRONICA. What's interesting is that (at least prior to Vampironica #1) The Hunger is currently ACP's best-selling floppy comic title. It's kind of hard to judge on the writing, but I at least thought the artwork in Vampironica was a little better than that in Jughead (and actually, better than that in Sabrina, as well).

I was left fairly underwhelmed by VAMPIRONICA #1 based on the fact that nothing about it feels particularly interesting or unique. It's far too similar in tone to its obvious model, VAMPIRELLA. Oh, another good female vampire who fights to protect people from evil vampires (and whatever other supernatural evils or monsters threaten humanity)? It just feels too derivative of lots of other vampire stories.

If this keeps up the next title they should come out with is a HUNGER companion title, THAT WILKIN WEREWOLF. Or maybe they could just keep ripping off Vampirella. Since that series had a spinoff character called PANTHA, a woman who could change herself into a black panther, maybe they should do a Josie & the Pussycats horror book where they all turn into various large, predator species of cats (lioness, leopardess, pantheress).

I don't know why I'm interested in what I'm interested in, DCR.  Something just clicked.  I don't try to overthink it.  I may not pick up Vampironica. Probably will depend on my mood.  I think I read THE HUNGER because I love Jughead and I was just desperate for new Archie titles.  I still like it, at least all the issues up to the last one which I haven't received yet because it's late AS USUAL. Ha ha. 


I never read Vampirella since, as you know, if it isn't published by Archie Comics, I probably haven't read it!

I think I get it. I was just desperate for new Archie titles probably accounts for a lot of their sales these days to people who were reading Archie comics before Afterlife With Archie and the New Riverdale Archie. You can't read comics that they don't publish, you can only pick from the handful of new comics they DO publish.

And it's slim pickings for this month's solicitations, with neither a new issue of ARCHIE, or of JUGHEAD THE HUNGER being solicited. I'll be getting the two B&V Jumbo digests by subscription as usual, so I just need to special-order SUPERTEENS VS MIGHTY CRUSADERS #1 and VIXENS #7, and I'm only really semi-interested in those. I'll probably read VAMPIRONICA #3 and not buy it, if there are copies in my LCS, but I sort of feel like if I happened to miss it, it wouldn't be any big deal to me either. Haven't made up my mind yet, but I may quit Vixens after #10 (that's assuming it goes any further than that). So if there aren't any new titles coming along besides ARCHIE MEETS BATMAN '66, by the time that's solicited I may be down to just that for ACP floppy titles. My biggest disappointment is there are no trade collections solicited this month.

If you mean the month I posted, there are two trade collections: Archie at Riverdale High Vol 1 and The Complete COSMO 


ARCHIE comes out in late May and again in early July according to Archie Comics when I asked them on Facebook.  Not sure why The Hunger isn't solicited in June unless it's destined for miniseries status!

Ah. OK, I guess I was looking at the solicits on the Previewsworld site and had the filter set to "comics" rather than "all products" for ACP. I'll be getting COSMO but passing on RIVERDALE HIGH.

THE HUNGER may just be skipping a month after #6, to begin a new story arc the following month. That's what happened with VIXENS -- which has a new artist on the second story arc, "Hunted", Jen Vaughn... and that will affect whether or not I continue with that title. Can't say I've been too impressed with either of Vaughn's covers for #6 or 7, as solicited. That has me a little worried, since Eva Cabrera's interior art didn't measure up to her cover artwork. If Jen Vaughn's covers don't look that good, it has me leery about what the interior art will look like.

ARCHIE is not quite published monthly; since issue #1, dated September 2015, it has skipped the months of December 2015, March 2016, June 2016, February 2018, and June 2018. On average that's more like 10 issues per year than monthly, although it obviously isn't sticking to a standard pattern of skipping certain months of the year. For the year 2017, it actually WAS monthly since there were 12 issues published that year.

Archie 31 is in very late May and according to Archie Comics on Facebook, Archie 32 will be early July.

...Did anyone besides me get the CHILLING ADVENTURES IN SOCERY Volume. 1 TPB? Was there a Volume 2?

No volume 2 solicited as yet -- but it seems likely to be scheduled, since the first volume sold pretty well (relatively speaking, as ACP trade paperbacks go). The reason that Volume 1 was in black and white probably had something to do with the production costs of having to scan the art from the pages of the printed comic books.
