    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?!

I asked Dan once on Twitter & he said its post pone. But that was awhile again. So maybe you can ask him again.

Supposedly it's still happening, though no new news for a long time.

Kevin does seem to have been de-emphasized recently.  You can get his trades dirt cheap on Archie's website, and he hardly shows up after the first few issues in the main Archie book. (I don't know about Jughead, as I haven't been following it).  It makes you wonder if ACP doesn't think that Kevin Keller has run its course, and decided to move on to the next thing.

He’s there pretty much as one of the main gang in Jughead, but for anything more it seems like no news is bad news with ACP

I wonder why ACP decided to make him de-emphasized?  Also, I am super glad that (back in 2010/2011) they decided to add an openly gay character (I support him!)  I do think, that if ACP wants to become more influential with younger people, they also need to create a Transgendered character!  Caitlyn Jenner (sorry if I spelled it wrong) was extremely brave in her coming out, I think that ACP would pick up even MORE readers if they created a Transgendered character.  What do you think?

I think that for Archie, a transgender character would be even harder to write for than Kevin was.  If you want to read a good Comic about transgendered kids, look up Wandering Son from Fantagraphics.  Wonderful, heartbreaking story.  I'd still be reading it today if it didn't break my heart so much.  It's a very good story.

Assuming the book comes out, then Kevin will be more emphasized. But right now, he's not part of a book to promote.


He's still a recurrent presence in "Archie" and he's an active supporting character in "Jughead." And those are the two major books. So he's not doing too shabby.


But please no Caitlyn Jenner presence on Riverdale. Her bravery is a sickening mix of publicity-seeking and privilege. IMHO, as always...

Caitlyn Jenner does not speak for all transgender people, true.  And I doubt even ACP and their ever-present need for more publicity would be dumb enough to feature her in an Archie Comic.  I know some transgender people and most of them are very nice people.

I didn't mean Caitlyn should be on, I meant ANY Transgendered person.  The individuals bravery speaks for itself! :D

Today I read my first Kevin story ever. It's in 75 Years, 75 Stories. It was 2 stories about him. They were okay, I guess, but I'm not a Dan Parent fan, so...

Watch out, Caitlyn Jenner, JonInIowaCity is telling you to check your privilege!  Did she break the SJW brain trust by supporting Trump or something?   ;D   It's not like I'm a huge fan, but it's good she came out, maybe people like gay men will stop treating transwomen like garbage like they have gotten away with for decades on end if there is an actual trans celebrity?  Oh I'm sorry, is being an Olympian to low of a bar for personal achievement for successful trans people? I guess you must be in the Olympics and then be poor for the rest of your life to make the bar for acceptable LGBT celeb status, or does that only apply to transfolk?  Was Doogie Howser MD in the Olympics?  Is that why he's allowed to be lavished with attention by the media?

Kevin got very good sales in the beginning, but I think it was sadly a bubble from collector interest.  They didn't position the comic right in the beginning in regards to entertainment value to keep readers coming back it seems.  Although, Veronica, Betty, etc. also got canned so it's not like he's alone.

I love Fiona's Kevin. He actually better than Archie in the reboot. There's a scene when he arguing with Jughead & Kevin looks so handsome.
