  • DeCarlo Rules: @TM - "They" is Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa. Just him. HE's the writer of both AWA and ChAoS. It's HIS story. He only writes an issue when his muse inspires him. Plus he's kinda busy being the showrunner and one of the head writers for RIVERDALE, which ACP probably considers a little more important. And from Sacasa's POV, I know television work must pay a helluvalot better than writing comic books. Especially if they're comic books published by ACP. Could someone else write those horror comics? Sure, if ACP's Chief Creative Officer decided to assign the books to someone else. At that point sales would probably just nosedive anyway, so what's the point? Better to let other writers make up their own horror stories using ACP characters.

More Classic Archie solicted for February 2017
« on: November 19, 2016, 02:30:53 AM »
Just wanted to point out a few items of note from ACP's Feb/2017 solicits.


First we got the long-delayed (two years!) 7th issue of the Super Special magazine, now another issue solicited for a mere 3 months later?
Keep your fingers crossed that this is back again, hopefully on a quarterly schedule. That means YOU SHOULD BUY THIS. :knuppel2:


Get out your crayons, colored pencils and markers!
ARCHIE'S COLORING BOOK #1 is here to relieve your stress.

Good thing too, because I'll probably be stressing out over whether or not it will get cancelled until I actually see it listed as shipping the next week...
128 pages of coloring fun for a mere (?) $9.99.
(Coloring books cost TEN BUCKS now?? I remember when they were like, 89¢ ... :-\ There's that stress creeping up the back of my neck again...)
The solicitation copy describes this as "each image has an intricate background pattern to add to your color experience". Hope it doesn't turn out looking like that awful DISNEY VILLAINS Coloring Book, which was so busy with clashing op-art background patterns that there were no open white areas to actually color in (seriously -- look at the awful reviews for it on Amazon). I suspect that they came up with this scheme to prevent people scanning any simple B&W-outline art and turning them into useful decorative artwork featuring their popular copyrighted character images. Uh-oh, there's that stress creeping up on me again...

See now, here's both a good example (because it's an awesome Dan Parent iconic cover design, and B&V both look totes adorable here  :smitten:), and a bad example of what I mean. If they printed that same cover on a page in the coloring book in black & white, what looked neato-keeno when Dan Parent did it on a computer poses a perplexing problem to someone staring at it with a crayon, marker or colored pencil in hand, looking at the patterns on the girls' dresses and thinking "WTF am I supposed to do with this?", so it's not lowering your stress levels the way just gazing at the cover as Dan created it on the computer would.



And finally, then there's THIS...!

I WANT to believe, because I WANT to buy this SOoo BADDDD!
But after the quick cancellation of the recently-solicited REGGIE'S 80 PAGE GIANT COMIC #1, I just don't believe ACP's solicitations are for actual, real products anymore. :buck2: At least when it comes to anything Classic Archie, beyond the usual periodical digest issues and the 1000 PAGE Comics and GIANT Comics collections.

I will get the Archie coloring book. It will be fun. I was into coloring for awhile but I got so busy with work. Hopefully the designs aren't too intricate and they still to the Classic Archie style. Archie comics never was too detailed.


Reggie 80 pager you can still pre-order on Comixology and Amazon. Due out 11/30. Maybe they just made it digital only.

If you'd seen what some of the pages of that Disney Villains Coloring Book looked like, you'd be nervous about that solicitation copy that says "each image has an intricate background pattern to add to your color experience". That thing looks awful. I'd show you, only we can't access the galleries to upload images right now. Here's a video where a guy does a page-through of the book: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gBvhDv1VjX0. Archie Comics aren't supposed to be "intricate", so if Archie's Coloring Book turns out looking anything like the Disney one, I'll be majorly disappointed, and won't hesitate to post a critical review on Amazon warning people away. IMO the coloring book should just feature b&w line-art of classic iconic cover images and pin-up pages.

It is to laugh. So it goes from a Digital Exclusive miniseries in 2006 to a Digital-Only collection in 2016?
