  • DeCarlo Rules: That's pretty much the whole point of having an internet -- it connects you to entertainment, information, and people who would otherwise be too far away from you physically, or would involve much greater effort on your part to connect with. And although there are some advantages for comic book collectors inherent in the direct-market dedicated comic book shop system, the major BIG (obvious) DISadvantage is that only a few thousand of those shops exist, compared to the huge number of retailers who used to carry comic books along with their other products back in the days of the "newsstand distribution system".

  • DeCarlo Rules: @Archiecomicxfan215 - FCBD comic books may be free to you, but the retailer has to PAY for those comic books he gives away for free. The publishers of the FCBD comics make no profit off them, and they're distributed to retailers by Diamond Comics for free, but they have to charge comic shop owners money for them, because paper and printing costs money. Your local comic shop owner loses a small amount of money with every FCBD comic book he gives away. Of course the whole idea behind FCBD is that sampling those free comic books will create interest in customers actually BUYing the retail versions of those FCBD comic books later on.

  • DeCarlo Rules: Don't forget to pick up the FCBD issue of DIE KITTY DIE: I Love You to Death! by Dan & Fernando from Chapterhouse Comics! Oh, and I guess if you care about that RIVERDALE thing, you could pick up the FCBD issue where Pop Tate eavesdrops on all the conversations of his teenage customers (makes him sound a little creepy, if you ask me...) Doesn't an adult business proprietor have more important things to worry about???

Retool on Archie action after the sonic comic ends.
« on: December 27, 2016, 08:13:02 AM »

Look what am I about to write is my opinion and it’s about the sonic the hedgehog comic book series and the brand ‘Archie action’.


As you know recent sonic the hedgehog comics no longer gain the popularity it once has  sales are probably low and most important of all people are no longer interested in licensed video game comic book series ..kind of. It makes me think that in about few years the sonic the hedgehog series is about to end or cancelled ,I mean look what happened to the Mega man comic book series it was good but  now it remains in hiatus which in my opinion is cancellation. Besides the Archie comics are currently focusing on rebooting the titles along with the Riverdale tv series.


So if the sonic the hedgehog comic book series is about to end in about few years after its long run probably that Sega ends their licensing with Archie comics , What going to happen to the Archie action brand.


Well here is my take on how the Archie action brand should be rebranded after the sonic comic ends ,Perhaps the red circle will be revived once again but this time as a full reboot not dc or marvel reboot type a clean reboot like the resurrected valiant did.
Or Maybe like the Archie horror brand which has its own universe since it is different from the main Archie series  but unlike the one which has horror it will be about action and adventure how about reviving three of the Archie action adventure titles set in a different Archie universe like Pureheart and the superteens, Explorers of the unknown and the man from Riverdale. I mean it might have some funny moments but it will be about action and adventure set in the different Archie universe .


So that’s my take on the retool on Archie action brand in case the  sonic comic series ends, What do you think?

Videogame character franchises aren't "evergreen" in the same sense as most ongoing fictional characters are. Their popularity waxes and wanes according to how the popularity of their most recent game sequels rank. Mega Man and Sonic the Hedgehog are very old franchises for videogame characters, so that makes them "nostalgia properties" analogous to the toy franchise licensing comic book titles published by companies like IDW (G.I. Joe, Transformers, etc.). Those comics are mostly being purchased by adults with fond memories from their childhood of those characters, but the age of the character franchise itself is an important sales factor -- as the audience for those characters grows older, many if not most of them will slowly stop reading comics, or at the very least, cut back on the ones they read substantially, so if the franchise is not picking up younger, newer readers along the way, sales will eventually drop off to the point where publishing the title is no longer viable.

I do agree that the Archie Action imprint is a good one for developing some of the more action-oriented versions of characters that are actually owned by ACP, because the cost of paying a licensing fee to the rights holders of videogame character francises is overhead that must be subtracted from the profit made on each title.

Yeah ,I agree so i think it's time that Archie comic should end their licensing deal with sega and focus on their orginal characters of archie comci by rebranding the new 'archie action.
