    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]

  • 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?!

Shipping characters in the Archie universe
« on: March 22, 2017, 08:34:09 PM »
Discounting Riverdale (the crappy TV show) which characters would you ship?


You can include and mix Josie, Sabrina, The new kids, etc....



Reggie/Veronica - reason vain, arrogant, made for each other.
Reggie/Cheryl - same as above.
Jughead/Toni Topaz - reason both love food.

Honestly, I can go with most of the ships that Archie comics throw at me. But some of the ones I don't like are:


- Archie and Cheryl. It makes sense why Archie would want her, but she won't tolerate him for long. And it is purely physical on Archie's part, so it's pointless.
- Chuck and Nancy with other people. They go well together.
- Little Archie shipping. No ten year olds "date" the way the Little Archie gang does.

The greatest ship in the known universe will appear in my ongoing fanfic, one that J.K. Rowling describes as, "Much better than that dreck, Harry Potter."  Chapter 2 coming very soon:

I don't think she means adults dating 10 year olds.   ;D

I agree re: Little Archie. The book was cute and fun when they were acting like little kids and going on adventures but once it started dealing with romantic hijinks, what was even the point of having Little Archie stories if they were just going to end up like the main title?

Personally, I don't really hate any ships except for something awful like minor/adult. I'm not fond of Archie/Veronica or Reggie/Veronica because I don't find them particularly interesting.

My favorite canon couple is Archie/Valerie, pretty much the only relationship in Archie Comics with any depth.

Semi-canon, I like Reggie/Betty, the shippers on this forum really made me appreciate this pairing. They were fun together when they were scheming to keep Archie and Veronica apart.

Before the reboot I would have wanted to see Veronica paired up with one of the new kids, either Lonnie (Lonnie and Ronnie, how quaint) because he was a rich kid like her but a lot more down to earth, so I think he would have been good for her, or with Danny D'Angelo because I think he would be a good foil for Veronica.

Of course my main ship is Jughead/Veronica. They would make the WORST couple but it would be entertaining to behold.

I don't know, while Jughead and Cheryl have no love for each other, I don't think Jughead's quirks bother Cheryl as much as they bother Veronica. For people who cannot stand each other, Jughead and Veronica can't leave each other alone; they've always got an opinion on what the other is doing no matter how trivial it is.

And I just don't recall any interaction between Ginger and Jughead, but Ginger has become nicer since she has stopped trying to become a dialed down Cheryl, so I don't see why Jughead would have a problem with her and vice-versa. Then again in AWA he's a zombie and she's a lesbian, so yeah, I don't see that working out.


Better yet, Jinx Malloy/Anybody?  :uglystupid2:

Okay, you've got me there.  ;)

I only have two.

Jughead + Trula Twyst  - Actually pretty obvious with a close reading of the stories.

Dilton + Marcy McDermott-Lodge (or whatever it is now) - Actually sorta happened in Archie vs Sharknado, in whatever alternate Archieverse that took place in.
