As an addendum, I'll mention that the most successful and long-running title that ACP published during this period -- although its first issue preceded ARCHIE #600 by six issues (Apr 2009) -- was SONIC UNIVERSE, running until #94 (Mar 2017). Considering how heavily-reprinted all of the Sonic comics from past years were during the 2009-2017 time frame, ACP's failure to retain the license to that character has to be considered one of the company's biggest mistakes. Compared to the total aggregate sales generated by Sonic, the total sales of all issues of AFTERLIFE WITH ARCHIE (plus TPB sales) were a drop in the bucket.

The next most successful title which began and ended during that time frame was MEGA MAN, at 55 issues.

The longest-running title published by ACP which began during that time that actually featured Archie and/or related characters was LIFE WITH ARCHIE magazine, at 37 issues. Only WORLD OF ARCHIE DOUBLE DIGEST ran longer, although not in terms of page count of new stories.
