  • Tuxedo Mark: Just looked at Archie Comics' subsciption page. Archie Meets Batman '66 is a six-issue miniseries. Archie 1941 is a five-issue miniseries. There's a six-issue subscription for Betty and Veronica: Friends Forever and Vixens (surprisingly; might get transferred to the new B&V title) and a twelve-issue subscription for Riverdale. Riverdale Digest isn't listed, so it looks like it's been cancelled.

  • CAPalace: I'm a woman btw and I'm just so sick of the blatant anti-men thing going on in comics these days. It's not doing women any favors either. :/

  • CAPalace: They're banking on Archie 700 to sell a lot because "lol a new number wow lol" and it will for the first issue but it'll just go back to the average/poor numbers it had before. And YOU KNOW with that writer on B+V it's going to turn into an anti-men, oooh girl power lol violence against men and demeaning men is feminism and fun lol lol Good luck. I'll stick to Ebay to find the DeCarlo stuff thanks.

  • Tuxedo Mark: I'm looking forward to the new B&V series. Personally, I think that previous B&V series by what's-his-name was way worse than anything that Rotante wrote on Vixens.
    July 09, 2018, 08:43:47 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: So, so predictable... they love to exploit NUMBERS, whether it's a single digit (1 or 0) or a triple-digit ending in 00. Good lord, I can't believe they're actually giving Jamie Rotante ANOTHER B&V series to write ruin! She is the worst I've read -- although it's a tough call, Marguerite Bennett was pretty horrible as well. Nick Spencer can actually be quite good as a writer... or pretty bad, depending on the character and the direction. He was great on ANT-MAN and SUPERIOR FOES OF SPIDER-MAN (both books that had a strong humorous subtext), and not so hot on CAPTAIN AMERICA and THE AVENGERS. And he's he new writer on (yet another) first issue of THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, so I wouldn't guess the ARCHIE gig will last. ACP could probably only afford to hire him for that ONE issue, #700.

  • Vegan Jughead: ARCHIE isn't on hiatus officially. The last official word from Archie Comics is that there is "big news about the flagship ARCHIE title" coming up after the "1941" miniseries. We'll see. RIVERDALE is supposed to come back early '19 after the TV show returns.

  • Mr.Lodge: Think it's time for new leadership, especially in the creative front?
    July 05, 2018, 03:09:04 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: I guess there's still THE HUNGER and VAMPIRONICA, but they're still so new that it's hard to think of them as "ongoing".
    July 05, 2018, 12:14:16 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: So both ARCHIE and RIVERDALE are "on hiatus"? That means ACP has no ongoing floppy comic titles. Not a good sign. Good thing they still have the digests going (knock on wood).
    July 05, 2018, 12:12:47 AM
  • Vegan Jughead: I'm sure it has been; it was a dumb concept LOL.  The RIVERDALE comic is on hiatus until at least early 2019 and I'm skeptical it will ever come back.

  • Tuxedo Mark: Has Riverdale Digest been cancelled? There hasn't been a new issue since #7 on March 21.

Should archie comics cancel sonic the hedgehog comics?
« on: June 09, 2016, 10:26:05 AM »
Alternate title :Is it time that archie comics should cancel the whole  sonic the hedgehog comic book line and "revise" the archie action brand like the reimagining of archie's explorers of the unknown, pureheart the powerful,The reimagining homage of archie adventurous stories from the 70s and The Man from R.I.V.E.R.D.A.L.E. or at least the archie version of "agents of SHIELD"?


I know what you are saying "Letting archie comics cancel sonic the hedgehog? ,it's stupid and ridiculous" that's what  you are going to say but there is the reason why i have to say this,You know the Sonic the hedgehog comics looks great  especially to fans who read for many years that was "then" This is "now" and "now"  the line  didn't get the huge sales like it once had many years ago infact the "sonic mania" is dying down  and no one is almost interested in video game comic books anymore .


And it is for the best  that Archie action and SEGA  should cancel the whole Sonic comic book line after many years for its run  and should end  the main sonic the hedgehog series with a milestone issue like maybe 300 or 350? and to let it end with a bang.


Then maybe have "Archie Action" revise its brand by replacing the sonic comics books with the reimagining on the real "archie action-adventure"  line like archie's explorers of the unknown, pureheart the powerful,The reimagining homage of archie adventurous stories from the 70s and The Man from R.I.V.E.R.D.A.L.E. or at least make a archie universe  version of "agents of SHIELD" they would have some laughs like their original line but with tons of action and adventure something like a comedy-action movie or something.

So what do you say is it time that both archie comics and Sega should end the sonic the hedgehog comic book run after so many years and replace them with "original" archie action comics ?

Another question similar to this, is should they cancel the entire digest line, and start over?

If they cancel the digest line then ...maybe    :-\  but at least they will reprint the classics in different formats like special,TPBs or digital magazine

I guess the only reason they should cancel the Sonic comics is if they aren't selling well enough. I personally don't care for them, but as long as there are enough people who do, why shouldn't they continue?


I would personally be all for your idea - although it seems to go contrary to everything ACP is doing these days in terms of new titles, so I doubt that something like it would actually happen. But my main point would be, whether they did it or not, they should only cancel the Sonic titles if sales are bad, because it would have nothing to do with any of the titles you propose. If Sonic sales are that bad, maybe they should do a stupid reboot of those. Or just cancel them.

Yeah ,I agree  sonic comic books didn’t sell well so I think it’s better they should cancel the line when it reached issue 300 or some issue.

Besides Archie comics now just mainly focus mostly on their rebooted titles, The dark circle (which might be a success or not) and Archie horror title which becomes a surprisingly hit known for its dark humor and throwback to the other horror comics.

But one opinion if any staff member of Archie comics read this thread don’t you think its time they should cancel the line, its no longer attracting many readers anymore so its time to retire that sonic comic book line and maybe rebrand the Archie action line with original titles like reboot the Archie adventures from the 70’s which were once drawn by a young Stan Goldberg from the 70’s to early 80’s including the reboot of explorers of the unknown.

Well, that's the reason that classic Archie titles got cancelled. They weren't selling. Accepting that that is the case, and if the current Archie Action (Sonic) line isn't selling well, then there's no reason to think that bringing back something like the original Life With Archie or Explorers of the Unknown would sell either.

Personally, I'd love it... which is exactly the sort of prognostication of doom you don't want. Anything I love is doomed to failure, it seems.

No. If they cancel the digests I'm done with ACP.

Yeah guess people in modern times weren't interested in those type of books (the classics ones that is) but at leat they are interested in the reboot ones.However i still think tis best that archie comics should cancel sonic comic line.

If it does at least they will reprint the classics in digital form or maybe in hardcover book types.

of course not!  sonic has such a rich history with archie being the longest running video game based comic book series
and it's the only good thing sonic has now

terrence12

I've actually never read them. If they are doing well they should keep going.
If the digests get cancelled well that will be one very sad day :(


Indeed it will be if it happens

Yes but not for along i still think it will be cancelled.

i don't think it'll be canned unless sega's cutting ties with archie and going to another publisher(which is also unlikely)

Good point however since the comic didn't get the popularity it once had i think its time that sega should end ties with archie comics and put an end to the series.
