  • DeCarlo Rules: You won't have to wait longer than next Wednesday, Vegan. The Best of Josie is on Diamond's confirmed shipping list for next week.
    August 17, 2017, 02:42:59 PM
  • Vegan Jughead: Good point on the pricing.  The new Josie and the Pussycats trade is only $9.99 and I can't wait for it.  I can't imagine they're moving many digests at retail.  The hardcore geeks like us subscribe but I doubt our numbers are large.
    August 17, 2017, 10:01:49 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: @Vegan - That investment capital helped pay for Adam Hughes, and printer's bill, plus they resurrected a few of their old cancelled solicits on trade paperbacks that the work had already been completed on.
    August 17, 2017, 09:45:09 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: I'm going to take a wild guess and say that ARCHIE AND ME DIGEST must contain a new 20-page story. But why wouldn't they advertise that fact? It's baffling trying to guess what they're thinking.
    August 17, 2017, 09:37:32 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: So Double Digests are 160 pages for $5.99, but ARCHIE AND ME DIGEST is 128 pages for $6.99? Yet somehow a 416-page trade paperback is priced at $9.99?? Or $12.99 for 104 pages of Adam Hughes reprints. I guess they must be using the old "dart-board pricing" method!
    August 17, 2017, 09:28:34 AM
  • Vegan Jughead: Archie November 2017 solicitations: Digests are up to $5.99!  Annuals are $6.99 so I guess Jumbos will be $7.99?  No one is paying that.  Subscribe or don't bother.  [link]
    August 17, 2017, 08:32:09 AM
  • Vegan Jughead: DCR and Downloader, remember they also got that investment capital last year.  I think it was for a few hundred thousand dollars.  I don't know how long that will last, but I'm sure they're using that.
    August 17, 2017, 06:46:26 AM
  • BettyReggie: I saw the November 2017 Solicitations. Fiona Staples is doing a few covers. I can't wait to see what they look like though because they didn't show them yet.
    August 17, 2017, 06:06:23 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: @The Downloader - What cash flow they have is coming not from the floppy titles, but from the digests and trade collections. They're just spewing out different one-shots and short-run series to see if they can find something that will last.
    August 17, 2017, 01:20:05 AM
  • The Downloader: How can ACP continue to push out new titles, when they dont have the money to back it up?!

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.
