  • DeCarlo Rules: That's pretty much the whole point of having an internet -- it connects you to entertainment, information, and people who would otherwise be too far away from you physically, or would involve much greater effort on your part to connect with. And although there are some advantages for comic book collectors inherent in the direct-market dedicated comic book shop system, the major BIG (obvious) DISadvantage is that only a few thousand of those shops exist, compared to the huge number of retailers who used to carry comic books along with their other products back in the days of the "newsstand distribution system".

  • Tuxedo Mark: The only "local" comic shop within "reasonable" distance of my house is 18 miles away, in the next county. Yeah, no, I'll continue getting my comics digitally.

  • DeCarlo Rules: @Archiecomicxfan215 - FCBD comic books may be free to you, but the retailer has to PAY for those comic books he gives away for free. The publishers of the FCBD comics make no profit off them, and they're distributed to retailers by Diamond Comics for free, but they have to charge comic shop owners money for them, because paper and printing costs money. Your local comic shop owner loses a small amount of money with every FCBD comic book he gives away. Of course the whole idea behind FCBD is that sampling those free comic books will create interest in customers actually BUYing the retail versions of those FCBD comic books later on.

Oh, and I guess if you care about that RIVERDALE thing, you could pick up the FCBD issue where Pop Tate eavesdrops on all the conversations of his teenage customers (makes him sound a little creepy, if you ask me...) Doesn't an adult business proprietor have more important things to worry about???

Would you read Archie stories from a new company?
« on: May 20, 2016, 04:00:00 AM »
Let's say the franchise gets sold to IDW and they decide to put out new stories. Would you buy them? Ive been thinking about it and I don't know if I would. Maybe if they hired the artists and writers who used to work for Archie, it would give some continuity with the old, but otherwise it might be too much of a change for me.

DeCarlo Rules

Well, I wouldn't NOT buy them just because IDW was the company publishing them. For the rest, it depends... on how they're written and drawn. I mean if IDW isn't just publishing new stories by the classic Archie writers and artists, but instead doing their own version of a reboot. If they merely continued the current version of Archie under the IDW imprint, then no.

To me, it just depends on the quality of the work and the characters.  I'd definitely buy it if it was IDW.   If it was Marvel or DC, I still might, but not if they started incorporating Archie with their own characters, i.e. Archie vs Spider Man, or Archie Loves Princess Leia.  I have zero interest in anything those two companies put out, so I'd hate Archie just to become a cog in that wheel. 

Marvel: Yes
DC: Yes
IDW: Yes
Image: Yes
Boom!: Yes
Dark Horse: Yes
Valiant: Yes
All Others: Yes

No matter who makes them, i'll read them.

Whatever the company it would come down to how the stories are written and what the art looks like if I would purchase them or not.

Yeah, like the others said, it depends on how they are written and drawn.

Mark Waid pushed for a Batman '66/Archie team-up, but it's hard for me to imagine how that would work. I'm not feeling the vibe between those two.


On the other hand, I would KILL to read a Spidey Meets Archie comic book. As long as it wasn't the current versions of either of those characters, and instead was the 1965 version, with Peter Parker still at Midtown High or just having recently graduated. And if they could get John Romita Sr. to draw it, I think I'd feel like I'd died and gone to heaven. Betty Cooper and Veronica Lodge meet Gwen Stacy and Mary Jane Watson. They're kind of exactly the same, but from different universes. Peter Parker has more in common with Archie Andrews than Peter would be comfortable admitting, either. Yet they're also complete opposites in most ways.


Wow, I hadn't even thought about it, but what if the Diabolical Duo, Reggie Mantle and Flash Thompson got together to switch partners and prank each other's victims? What if Mad Doctor Doom & Chester got together with Victor Von Doom & Kraven the Hunter? Oh, this could be a classic!

Well, Archie meets the Punisher worked pretty well …

Archie Loves Princess Leia.


Damn, now I want to read this.

I think a '40s Batman/Archie teamup would make more sense. Yeah and Spidey Meets Archie would be awesome.




Well I'm glad everyone would be willing to give a new company a shot, I do think it would be smart for them to rehire Fernando Ruiz, Dan Parent, the Kennedys and the rest so that the new version wouldn't feel too alien but they might be unavailable by that time.




BlueBomber2015

I would, and if they bring back Mega Man and convince Nintendo to get the OK to the the Super Mario comic.

Well, we already have Mark Waid & Ryan North & soon Adam Hughes writing/drawing Archie comics so how would it be different from another company exactly? These are the people from the other companies.

Not all other companies are equal. I see vast differences in the publishing philosophies of Marvel & DC, Image and IDW and Dark Horse. Interestingly, DC is currently rebooting a bunch of Hanna-Barbera properties (Scooby-Doo Apocalypse, The Flintstones, Wacky Raceland) that seem to be informed by the same sensibilities as Archie's various retakes on its classic characters. I don't see IDW doing the same sort of Archie reboot that ACP is doing.

I'd probably buy them from any company.

   Marvel (who I love in general) would be a terrible fit for ACP — they would primarily be interested in the horror & dark circle lines and might continue an improved version of the reboot to see if it was marketable, but notice that after the initial hype even the “Star Wars” material there us being quietly phased out …
   DC has a long history with the Dark Circle & other heroes — even tried to integrate them into the DCU at one point before the licensing agreements came apart … those and the Horror titles might be shunted to Vertigo (and better treated) or introduced to their main line (which they’ve stsated will no longer be as concerned with continuity if the story is good …  :-\
   Image … will never happen — they publish creator own material that they consider worthwhile — ACP is the antithesis of creator owned …
   Dark Horse & IDW have a history with ACP on several levels and with the various types of material ACP publishes, from classic to reboot, horror and superhero, so either might be a good fit if they were willing and the finances could be worked out …
