  • DeCarlo Rules: Presumably with an ongoing B&V series, they'd want to keep it nominally in continuity with the ongoing ARCHIE title.

  • DeCarlo Rules: Oh, I hadn't noticed that the story is "Senior Year", so that explains it. It's a one-off story arc, just like "Freshman Year". They're not going to keep them as seniors permanently, or have them graduate and go on to college in an ongoing series.

  • DeCarlo Rules: Probably just a space-filler while they look for a better writer than Jaime Rotante. I hope.

  • DeCarlo Rules: It seems like they put extras on a disc because people expect them, or it helps drive sales, but more often than not, it seems like very little thought goes into the content. Of course there are some examples where the extras are exceptional, but usually that's not the case.

  • irishmoxie: I love digital movies and streaming. I usually get the Blu-ray Disc because I like to watch the extras the first time and then end up adding the digital code online or rip it and put it on the hard drive. Just much more convenient to stream it then search for the disc when I want to watch it.

  • DeCarlo Rules: On the other hand, maybe I should just bypass the Blu-Ray format altogether, buy a huge terabyte HD, and download everything. There's something to be said for that, in that you can get everything quicker and stacks of Blu-Ray cases aren't taking up space in your house, I guess.
    August 27, 2018, 03:19:15 pm
  • DeCarlo Rules: This coming from a guy who still hasn't capitulated to the inevitable domination of Blu-Ray. It's getting to the point where I might have to relent, since I've seen some anime sets being released for the first time on Blu-Ray (no combo pak) with NO release of a DVD version.
    August 27, 2018, 03:09:15 pm
  • DeCarlo Rules: I'll never get used to people not being able to wait a few days when they order stuff online. I guess maybe I could understand it IF it were something that there was no other way to see, but I assume you've already seen the episodes.  People who are that impatient usually don't even buy disc sets, they just buy it digitally or stream it.

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.
