  • Tuxedo Mark: Picked up "Riverdale" on DVD. Ripped the first disc to my hard drive and am gonna start reviewing episode 1 tomorrow. :)
    Today at 07:51:23 PM
  • Vegan Jughead: Thanks DCR!  That's awesome news.
    Today at 06:11:20 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: You won't have to wait longer than next Wednesday, Vegan. The Best of Josie is on Diamond's confirmed shipping list for next week.
    Today at 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.
    Today at 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.
    Today at 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.
    Today at 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!
    Today at 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]
    Today at 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.
    Today at 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.
    Today at 06:06:23 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: @The Downloader - What cash flow they have is coming not from the floppy titles, but from the digests and trade collections. They're just spewing out different one-shots and short-run series to see if they can find something that will last.
    Today at 01:20:05 AM
  • The Downloader: How can ACP continue to push out new titles, when they dont have the money to back it up?!
    August 16, 2017, 05:40:53 PM
  • Tuxedo Mark: Crap, I just remembered I forgot to pick up "Riverdale" today.
    August 16, 2017, 03:15:05 PM
  • BettyReggie: I asked Adam Hughes on twitter who is working on B&V #4 . He said Rachael Stott is working on it.
    August 15, 2017, 08:31:36 PM
  • Tuxedo Mark: Riverdale season 2 billboard on Sunset Boulevard: [link]
    August 15, 2017, 07:57:03 PM
  • Tuxedo Mark: I'll pick mine up tomorrow at Wally World. Getting only the DVD edition for now, so I can rip the files to my computer and review the episodes for my blog.
    August 15, 2017, 04:31:34 PM
  • BettyReggie: Season #1 of Riverdale came today from target.
    August 15, 2017, 01:00:25 PM
  • BettyReggie: 50 days till October 5th 2017 New York Comic Con
    August 15, 2017, 07:45:25 AM
  • Tuxedo Mark: I didn't watch it, but, yeah, "Riverdale" won a lot. Good for them. :)
    August 14, 2017, 03:28:08 PM
  • BettyReggie: I only watched when Riverdale won Best Show.

Why almost everything new members leave the forum after 1-2 weeks?
Many of these members are interesting and very active here.  :(

They comment on every thread of which there aren't very many and get bored and leave. This forum doesn't have a huge amount of action or differing opinions.


I noticed we can't keep kids here who all seemed to get bored and leave without warning. I'm starting to think they're all the same kid.


I'm looking for a new forum myself that discusses other comics besides Archie.

daren

Why not discuss other comics here in general comics?  :)

invisifan

While I agree with that in general, it does limit many things to an Archie perspective...

I signed up for this site about 1 1/2 years ago. Used to lurk a lot, there were a lot of great old threads to read. I forgot about my account after a short while due to being busy with my new job.


I came back about 2 weeks before all the data was deleted and posted a few times. There was a certain ignorant poster who seemed to infiltrate every innocent post and seemed to want to argue about everything. Made me reluctant to post or share an actual opinion and I'm probably not the only one who felt that way. Luckily that particular person no longer posts here. News of the Riverdale show resparked my interest in this forum, but I'm still surprised at the negativity regarding the show but it's alright.


Anyway, the data deletion itself was sort of a punch in the gut. Now those old threads I liked lurking are gone and it's hard to stay interested in "what did you buy today?" sort of clunky topics and clunky gigantic signatures. I feel like there's a large gap between what ultra-fans and casual-fans want to talk about, if that makes any sense. I agree forums are old news: pretty much every forum I go to is dead except for the imdb.com main forums. However I think a forum like this dedicated only to Archie is unique and I wish this forum could become active again. I wasn't and haven't been here long but I feel like I missed the glory days of this place.

I spent everyday on this site for 3 years. I joined April 30 2013. I missed the old site. I had so many good threads. What did you do today? Show us your Archie collection & What comics & books are you reading? The one about my family & I moving. But I restart a few of them. I was very close to 7,000 posts. It was a big part of my day. I had so many buddies. We all talk about Archie comics & our lifes. It was a great community. But we all there & we have a chance to make the site better than it was before.

Yes, I have noticed that.  It also happened on the old forum. Most of those members are young, in their teens or very early 20's and maybe a couple are children. They comment a lot, their post count goes very high and then all of a sudden they vanish. I guess, they just lose interest and move on. But new members will always come.

Well you can always start a new topic, one that is interesting to you.

This. Big time. Too much superhero garbage out there to the point these basement-dwelling dweebs don't even have a life.  >:(

Or 'What kind of candy bars do you like' 'What's your shoe size'.... Y - A - W - N  :P

More interested in discussing 'actual Archie-related stuff'  :smitten:

I think you'll find that it's true for most forums that the activity there reflects what there is currently to talk about, about (in this case) what's happening in the world of Archie Comics. Since ACP isn't publishing a lot of titles right now, that means most of the conversation is going to be about the New Riverdale comics. When new Archie Horror issues come out, there will be some discussion on those, as well. It seems that there aren't a lot of heavy digest readers, or much to discuss about them that generates a lot of common interest apart from the new lead 5 page story. Some of those are notable, and some less so. Just in general, the lack of new stories coming out at the rate of a trickle tends not to generate much excitement. Apart from that there's Riverdale, the much-anticipated (by some) and much-dreaded (by others) TV pilot. Right now though, every time they dot an i or cross a t, it seems to generate some posting.


I wish I'd been around when they were still publishing most of the classic Archie titles including Archie, Archie & Friends, Betty, Betty and Veronica, Betty & Veronica Spectacular, Jughead, Life With Archie, Veronica, etc. As it was I showed up after Kevin Keller and Life With Archie had ended, and the end for Archie and Betty and Veronica was only a year away or less. I still get all the digests, and probably will at least until they stop running new stories in them (after which I might cut back to just the two B&V digests).

Original Sin

I had a great time on this forum 2011-2013 (or was it 2014?) .

I tried starting Jem and the Holograms and Lumberjanes threads on the old forum and not too much interest there.

irishmoxie

I really think forums are old news. I can only stay active by using the tapatalk app because it's just cleaner and easier to read while I find going on from a computer to be to messy looking.

Also the active members here are really hardcore fans and most might come check it out but don't indulge enough- or merely just forget to come back.

What fan communities do you think are still booming? I'm on Twitter a bit more now and talk to some of the comic book artists and writers. Are there any other places people discuss comics?


You can use Tapatalk but you miss out on the Shoutbox which is sometimes my favorite part of this forum.
