  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • DeCarlo Rules: The questions you ask about classic Archie (which is a cartoon on paper) are sort of "real-world logic" questions. A cartoon world, unlike the real world, creates its own rules and its own logic, nonsensical as that might be. Like Wile E. Coyote not being affected by gravity until he looks down and realizes he's run off the edge of the cliff.

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?
