    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]
    August 17, 2017, 08:32:09 AM
  • 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.

THE CANCELLATION REPORT
« on: January 27, 2017, 03:01:42 AM »
It finally occurred to me that cancellations of previously-solicited titles are such an ongoing problem with ACP, that there really ought to be a permanent thread to alert people to these cancellations when they happen. I hasten to remind people that that doesn't preclude the title and issue # in question being re-solicited at some later date, and finally coming out at some time in the future. However, it's also a good thing to keep in mind that non-ongoing titles like TP collections, magazine format, new #1 issues, and one-shots are especially at risk of that cancellation being of a much more permanent nature, and the title in question never seeing print at all.

At this point there are a few recent cancellations that I already mentioned elsewhere, so I'm not going to repeat those now, but going forward I will try to put all such notices in a single place, here on this thread, so that if people are wondering about any particular title, they can find this thread and check all the previous posts.

The newest cancellations I've just discovered:

ARCHIE COMIC SUPER SPECIAL #8
JOSIE & THE PUSSYCATS 80 PAGE GIANT COMIC #1


Can't say either of these is a major shock (although both are a major disappointment to me, personally), as the SUPER SPECIALS have been suffering from these cancellations with the last 2 previous issues (and I'm actually surprised last year's Christmas issue, #7, got published at all). The JOSIE 80 PAGE GIANT follows suit with the previously-solicited, and then cancelled REGGIE'S 80 PAGE GIANT #1.

I also probably need to explain that if you pre-ordered titles that wind up being cancelled, your order will not be filled much later if and when the title is re-solicited (unless you have some sort of standing subscription or pullbox order, with ACP or with your LCS).

What CANCELLED means:  Diamond Comics has a standard policy that if a title is not delivered to its retailers within 90 days of the originally-solicited shipping date that the publisher promised, they automatically cancel all retailers' outstanding orders for that title. It can also mean that the publisher informed Diamond that the title would not be available by the solicited shipping date promised, and then Diamond cancelled all of its outstanding retailer orders. Either way the title would have to be re-solicited by ACP, and new orders for that title placed by Diamond's retailer accounts. In the case of the above-mentioned cancelled titles, 90 days have not yet passed from the target shipping date, so those cancellations were obviously made by ACP itself (probably due to low pre-orders on the titles mentioned).

Indeed. What about Sonic?

I'll just be honest and admit to having absolutely zero interest in those titles, or the Dark Circle line (except for reprints of older material), either. If anyone wants to track the cancellations on those comics, they're certainly welcome to post them in this thread, but I'm not going to do it myself. The only thing I'll be personally tracking myself are the cancellations of Archie and Archie-related (Josie, Sabrina, etc.) titles - floppy comic books, magazine format, trade paperback and hardcover collections (if they start cancelling digest titles, you'll know The End is mere months away).

They have a deal with Netflix. I don't think it will be cancelled that quickly.

You should note whether things still come out digitally. The Reggie 80 pager did and is available on Comixology. The Josie 80 pager gives a new digital release date of 12/27/17 *probably cancelled*.

Thanks for the info, irishmoxie. Good to know. I guess that just turned REGGIE'S 80 PAGE GIANT #1 into an instant Digital Exclusive. (Is it available elsewhere, apart from Archie Digital?) I have to admit I don't have time to check all the digital releases, and usually just assume that print comics that are cancelled aren't being released in some other format. Please continue to chime in from time to time with this kind of exception. My impression is that this is the sort of thing that doesn't happen too often, but feel free to correct me if that isn't the case.

Any word on the Sabrina 80 Page Giant?

It does usually take more than a week or so after the solicitation first appears for any product to be cancelled, so I guess you'll have to be patient for a couple of months.

What does that mean? That even if the CW cancels it because of bad ratings, they'll still be making episodes for Netflix?
