  • 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. :/
    July 09, 2018, 09:05:40 PM
  • 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).

Archie: The Next Generation?
« on: June 24, 2016, 02:48:23 PM »
So here's a little idea. What if they take many of the main Archie Characters and give them kids. Like pair up Archie & Veronica, Reggie & Betty, Jughead & Midge(Life With Archie), Dilton & Cheryl, and Moose & Ethel. Make them all adults of either pre teens or teenagers who all live in Riverdale.  Do you think this would work and possibly be fun to see Archie tormented by his kids like he tormented his own dad?

In the last issue of Life With Archie. He did have a son & daughter. But they hide who the mother of children so you didn't know if Betty or Veronica were the mom.

Yes I know. I think it would fun to have there kids as teens and really make them the central characters with Archie, Betty, Veronica, Jughead, and Reggie still in it but more like the parents. So there teen kids could drive them crazy.

I'm not sure what I'd find compelling about Archie & the gang suddenly having kids beyond just a one-off "imaginary" type storyline.  I liked the way LWA approached a similar concept by having Archie and Betty as teachers of teen students who could (potentially) drive them batty.

I do miss Life With Archie. That coming in the mail was such a treat. I guess the next generation of Archie is the reboot of the comics. Especially in the 1st Josie, Melody tells Josie she can have a drink. So do her & Melody drink alcohol. And it seemed like they lived in a apartment. They don't live at home anymore. That would never fly in the old days. And wasn't Pepper working in a bar. And she looked much older than the rest of the girls.

I always thought they could have built a LWA spinoff series around Jellybean and her friends (which could also include some of Archie and Betty's new students at Riverdale). Jellybean, as the only 'name' character bridging the series to the past (but otherwise, as a teenager, effectively a blank slate) would be the natural anchor or lynch pin around which the other characters revolved, with Archie, Betty, Jughead, etc. taking over the roles formerly held by Mr. Weatherbee, Ms. Grundy, and Pop Tate. Of course, opportunities would abound for guest appearances of the "whatever happened to... ?" type: imagine Josie McCoy as a local independent music producer, Sabrina Spellman as the proprietress of a New Age/occult bookshop, Samantha Smythe as the owner of a heath & fitness club, Jinx Holliday as a local collegiate sports star, etc.

In the TV Serie Riverdale the parents are grown up versions of the kids. It seems there was even a tringle between Fers, Alice and Hermione. Also Fred and FP were close friends, justa like their sons.
