  • DeCarlo Rules: @Kallell - Right. That's what I meant. The solicitations that came OUT for the months of November, December, and January... as Diamond Comics Distribution dates their catalogs. And those ACP comics digests solicited in those catalogs would indeed have shipping dates in the months of January, February, and March.  Which means ALL the issues of Archie, World of Archie, Betty and Veronica, and B & V Friends in those solicitations are JUMBO COMICS digests. Unlike those titles, Riverdale Comics Digest, Marvel Comics Digest, and Archie and Me Comics Digest haven't varied in their format from one issue to the next.
    January 15, 2018, 12:22:20 PM
  • Archie Comics Collector(Kalell): Very interesting observation DeCarlo Rules. Actually December 2017 was the last month in which there was still three Digest formats: Annual, Comics Double Digest and a Jumbo Comics Digest. As I looked through Jan, Feb and March solicits it seems that the main two formats are Comics Digest 128 pager: Archie and Me and the rest of the main Archie Digests will just be Jumbo Comics Digest 192 pagers. They seem to be doing away with the Annuals and Comics Double Digests for now.
    January 15, 2018, 11:41:08 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Looking back through the ACP solicitations from November, December and January, it just dawned on me that EVERY regular digest title solicted (except for Archie and Me Comics Digest, Riverdale Comics Digest, and Marvel Comics Digest) is a JUMBO COMICS Digest (192 pages). Are Jumbo Comics Digests the new permanent format? It sure looks that way.

Riverdale TV Series
« on: April 02, 2016, 10:30:59 PM »
I was curiouswhat everyone thought about this? I for one am really excited. I know it's not going to be the classic Archie everyone would want to see but they've got to appeal  to a newer audience.

The writer of Afterlife with Archie and Chilling Sabrina wrote the pilot episode so that's a good sign. I think the cast actually looks pretty good too.

Here is a great Instagram with behind the scenes photos of them filming if anyone is interested.

Thanks for sharing that Instagram link. :)

I'm cautiously optimistic about the series. We'll see what happens. At the very least, I like how Betty and Cheryl look.

Yeah I actually think if you look at the New Riverdale Comics everyone looks pretty close to those versions.

I'm hopeful, at the the very least we will get to see a live action Archie that could lead to more Archie!

You obviously weren’t here much before the forum was reset … it won’t be an Archie any of us knows certainly — I look at it as a separate Archieverse

Yeah me too. I think it's a good move for the brand though to try and pull in a younger audience but from the behind the scenes stuff I've seen it sort of feels like they are trying to have a balance of stuff the fans would know as well as new stuff.

Well they have to put a bunch of old content in just to justify the name — which is a big part of the draw obviously … and a gamble — they are somewhat burning their bridges with it it seems, especially if it makes it on the air …

I'm not surprised nobody is optimistic about it.

I think it's sort of the best chance at an archie TV show though. I just don't think that adapting Archie crazy faithfully would have much of an audience as much as I wish it would.

I believe it truly could. You have so much room with creativity with Archie really making the colours pop and explore with costumes and perfected casting. I really wish I could be the creative artist over this project. They are doing what they do with every teen series instead of going out and making Archie what it truly can be



Oh believe me I would LOVE to see that it could be really awesome. It just seems like a long shot. If this show is moderately successful though maybe they give it a shot at some point.

Like I said I'm sort of encouraged by who wrote the pilot though. It all comes down to if the cast pulls it off.

Yeah I can see how some of the casting gets people. They are really, really trying to diversify though to avoid being attacked and what not though.

It's not going to last past 2 seasons I can tell you that. My gut instincts tell me it's going to crash they casted incorrectly.



Unfortunately having a 'hot' cast will guarantee that this show lasts for at least 4 seasons of high school before teenage girls get bored and move onto something else. Freeform and CW now know the formula for a successful TV show and unfortunately it's not good writing or acting.


I think that the casting for Reggie is spot on though. And for those complaining that he is played by a half Asian, we don't know for sure if he is going to be Asian in the show. Kristen Kreuk played a white character in Smallville and she is also half Asian.


I also don't mind the race-bending because if Archie was created today it would be ethnically diverse. Also, the race of the characters don't affect who they are. It's the personality and characterisation changes especially with Jughead that I don't like.

What do you guys mean how they are changing Jughead?

Reggie is Asian now.  That actor can't pull off anything other than an Asian man, which is not his fault, it's the dumbasses making this show that cast him into that role.  This entire thing is going to be a monument to faux-liberal narcissism.

Oh please.  The race of the characters matter.  You ONLY think it doesn't matter when the characters are white.  You think they would dare race swap a minority character?  How about having some guts and sticking up for the intellectual property and the rich history of these characters instead of changing it wildly because the flavor of the month political correctness bandwagon BS says race swapping characters is okay now instead of it being enormously asinine like anyone with common sense thought before 2011 when white guilt social media virtue signalling went into hyper drive?

They're huge cowards then.  The people behind this show don't seem to be huge fans of the characters as is thus emo Jughead, Hispanic convict Hiarm Lodge and racially singular Josie and the Pussycats.  Also the obsession with remaking Twin Peaks when that has nothing to do with Archie Comics.  Might as well make an Archie version of Dune with giant sand worms and everything.  It makes about as much sense.  The only people who should be making Twin Peaks are named David Lynch.  If you talk about making your Archie Comics show into Twin Peaks in interviews, chances are you're a pretentious hack.

It's this sort of pessimism and hate that drives me nuts.

I get that we all have our ideas about how archie should be adapted or any other property for that matter. At the end of the day there will never be perfect or exact adaptations.

I just can't find the point in being so negative about it though. This could literally be the only time we ever even come close to a live action Archie TV show.

Will it be different? Will it change a lot of things? Yes.

Could it suck? Yes. Could it be good? Yes

At the very least try and be hopeful you find something you like about it because it's the Archie Show you are getting. 

Nobody involved with this show is trying to cash in or just phone it in. It's not like the world is clamoring for an Archie TV show. They are trying to make something good.

No reason to be negative before giving things a shot.

Go nuts then.  Last time I checked the PC Police haven't removed my freedom of speech here yet.

Straw man argument.  I never said it had to be a perfect adaptation.  But there's a difference between an imperfect adaptation and turning said adaptation into an inane vanity project and  sucking up to morons who think they are changing the world by politicizing and bastardizing obscure pop culture artifacts.

A lot of fans would like to have nothing instead of being slapped in the face and fed a **** sandwich.  That's not surprising really.  Avatar the Last Airbender also had one chance at having a live action adaptation.  Didn't change the fact it was a huge turd mostly known for ridiculous race swapping.

Maybe the people involved should just make something original instead of dragging something that already exists through the mud.

Agreed.

Nope, it's going to suck.

I don't care.  I'd rather have no Archie show if this was the one they're going to give me.

Quote

I disagree.  It's an extremely cynical attempt at cashing in and everything that has been leaked about this thing reeks of bad fanfiction.  Can't get more phoned in than that.  Everyone involved is at fault for what this turned into, and that goes straight to the top of the company.

Quote

This is the same tired line I hear before everything that looks like it's going to be terrible.  "Guys, the Jem movie could be good!  Give it a shot!  You haven't seen it yet!  Stop being negative!"  Turned out it was one of the worst movies ever made and it took a huge crap on the fans.  Not thinking like that anymore means I've stopped being naive.  And holy crap, it's not like TV pilots are known for being film making master pieces.
