  • DeCarlo Rules: It's crazy that ACP hasn't reprinted those 2 issues as a double-size one-shot. Or the lead story in a TP collection of vampire stories (including "Twilite" and others).

  • irishmoxie: That's crazy about those Betty and Veronica issues being worth so much. They're only about 6 years old. I'm pretty sure I have copies of them.

  • DeCarlo Rules: On a relatated note, the real FIRST Vampironica appeared in Larry Welz' underground comic Cherry Poptart #1 [link]. That can be had right now, CGCed at 9.4, at the Buy-It-Now price of $280 on ebay. Although the book had several subsequent printings, only the first printing ($2 cover price) contains the Vampironica story. Much, much scarcer than B&V #261 & 262, but then far fewer people seem to be aware of its existence. It may not be the same Vampironica as the one that appears in her own comic book from ACP, but then you can easily make the argument that neither is the Vampironica from B&V 261-262.

  • rusty: Crazy.  I obviously missed that back then.
    November 03, 2018, 10:06:11 pm
  • DeCarlo Rules: Yes, I mentioned this a while back somewhere around the time Vampironica #1 was first solicted or shipped. I even mentioned it to Dan Parent and told him if he still had copies he should get them CGC'ed.
    November 03, 2018, 04:33:03 pm
  • rusty: Apparently Betty and Veronica #261 and 262 (1987 series) are popular now due to Vampironica.  Somebody actually purchased a copy of #261 for $299 on ebay recently.

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

irishmoxie

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.

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?) .

irishmoxie

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


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.
