  • CAPalace: Sega posted on their Sonic Twitter. They pulled the Sonic license from Archie Comics and are going to do their own Sonic comic (or something) [link] Wow :(

  • DeCarlo Rules: Having the comic solicited by DC is ultimately to ACP's benefit, since it's likely to result in higher preorders from comic shop retailers than if it were the other way around.

  • rusty: They only show the Amanda Conner cover.  Here are the DC solicits.   [link]

  • BettyReggie: I can't find them. Can you post pictures of both Comics, because Adam Hughes is doing a cover too.

  • rusty: Harley and Ivy Meet Betty and Veronica #1 is in the DC Solicitations instead of the Archie Solicitations.

  • BettyReggie: i wrote to Mike Pellerito on twitter How come no B & v #4 & Harley & Ivy Meet Betty & Veronica #1 in The October 2017 Solicitations?

  • DeCarlo Rules: I know WHY they're doing those floppy comics the way they are. It's largely wasted effort though, because the Archie characters just don't have a history for most of those backbone consumers that make up the comic shop audience. They're largely raised on superhero comics and nothing but. What I'm suggesting is that they're concentrating their efforts in the wrong place, because they're never going to convert a significant enough share of the direct market into ACP readers.

  • Vegan Jughead: Yes, DCR, I've read a lot of your thoughts about Archie's challenges with the comic shops and I agree with you.  My friend having just owned and sold a comic shop, the entire comic shop format is in danger.  His business was tough.  I think that's why, as much as you're not a fan, you see things like RIVERDALE.  These companies have to use their characters every way they get a chance.  Selling books isn't enough to sustain them anymore.

  • DeCarlo Rules: If there's anything comic book retailers and collectors don't like, it's (A) non-standard size comics that don't fit their normal racking/bins, bagging, boarding, boxing and filing system; and (B) reprints, unless they're of consecutive issues of the same title and/or consecutive chapters of a continued story. Also non-standard genres, like anything cartoony or comical. I think that pretty much covers the uphill slope ACP has going against it with comic shops.

  • DeCarlo Rules: It's not meant for the comic shop market. I didn't get the point of LIFE WITH ARCHIE in magazine format, since the content was clearly aimed at the audience for floppy comics. I could see if they had offered both formats to try to hedge their bets, but ACP's failure to offer that series in floppy format is baffling. And digests and magazines don't necessarily have the same audience either. I prefer the magazine-size reprints.
    July 17, 2017, 02:57:59 AM
  • Vegan Jughead: From what I've seen though, almost everything in those Super Specials has recently been published in digests.  I don't get the point.
    July 16, 2017, 08:06:05 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: @VJ - Still better than any 2 and half floppy comics they've been publishing (and more pages of story, too) by my reckoning. Looks like you and I will just be spending our respective $10 in different ways. Maybe I'd feel differently if the new stories ACP is publishing were equal in entertainment value to me to the reprints.
    July 16, 2017, 05:00:59 PM
  • Vegan Jughead: I really don't care if it gets published.  It's one of the biggest ripoffs they sell.  10 bucks for blown up art on cheap paper.
    July 16, 2017, 06:56:30 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Super Special #6 came out in Nov. 2014, but Super Special #7 wasn't published until 2 years later. I hope #8 gets published before Nov. 2019.
    July 16, 2017, 03:07:18 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: The latest solicitation for ARCHIE COMICS SUPER SPECIAL MAGAZINE #8 (originally scheduled to ship July 26th) has been CANCELLED.  >:(  The previous 3 issues of the Super Special Magazine all had their original solicitations cancelled as well, but were eventually published after multiple solicits.

  • Tuxedo Mark: My mom just gave away an old, hand-crank meat grinder that had been in our family for at leats 41 years, because she never uses it. >:( But she didn't ask me if I wanted to use it someday to make my own sausages (which I had been counting on).

  • The Downloader: Back after a long vacation.  I was looking through some recent articles about AC's plans for the future, and I am upset that they are replacing the Jughead and Archie title with Archie and me DIGEST.  I guess they are now expecting us to pay 6 dollars and 99 cents for 128 pages, versus 160 pages for 4 dollars and 99 cents.
    July 15, 2017, 06:26:15 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Well, maybe it's the artist's fault then. Nobody in that story seemed like they were having fun. Or maybe it only seems funny if you were in a band and were in some kind of similar situation, but looking back on it now, it seems dopey.
    July 13, 2017, 11:00:24 AM
  • Vegan Jughead: I know DCR.  I didn't think you insulted him personally.  Sorry if my response is misleading.  I personally have found a lot of the New Riverdale stuff funny.  It's different humor for sure, but I find myself laughing.  Maybe I'm just weird.
    July 13, 2017, 10:00:46 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Tom DeFalco's another example. He's written some of the very best ACP comics of the last 10 years. Unfortunately Reggie and Me wasn't one of them. Why are they so afraid of being funny in New Riverdale?

New: enhanced site security
« on: May 15, 2017, 12:33:05 AM »
Just a quick note for everyone. With the latest update to the forum software, I have switched the site over to use https (secure) URLs instead of plain http. You shouldn't notice much difference (though you'll now see a green lock and "Secure" next to the URL in Google Chrome and similar things in other browsers), but this will enhance security, especially where usernames and passwords are concerned. If you have any questions or run into any problems, let me know.

There seems to be a problem with editing posts. When I try, I get a message saying the information is being sent over an unsecure connection, and the edit fails.

The search function isn't working either. It just opens a new (blank screen) tab when trying to search.

Thanks for the reports. I'll take a look and see what I can do.

Search has been fixed. That was due to a bug with the latest version of the forum software. I'm still looking into the post modification issues.

It's even worse than that now. Not only does the "Modify" button not work, but the "REPLY" doesn't work at all, and returns a dialogue box saying "Security Warning: The information you have entered on this page will be sent over an insecure connection and could be read by a third party.  Are you sure you want to send this information?"  Choosing "Continue" or "Cancel" in the Security Warning dialogue box is irrelevant, as the text I typed will not be posted. Instead, I'm returned to the Forum topics listing page. Or at least that's how it's working in both Firefox and Chrome browsers.

Fortunately the "Quick Reply" button does still seem to work, otherwise it would be impossible for me to post at all.

I'm not sure what's going on with that and will look into it later today when I have more time

Just in case anyone didn't see my reply to the other topic about the issues, everything should be fixed now. The post form being broken was due to a server setting that was somehow messing up the URLs, and the security error was due to a hidden setting related to the addon that rewrites the URLs.

Got a new problem for you, sorry. You know in the albums where you have "newer" or "older" at the bottom of a page panel where you can go to the next or previous page panel? Well, some pages have them, and others don't. One has to go back to an album page with the 24 panels, then click on a panel, as opposed to clicking through the pages...
