  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

Please Post Below.  We will make a story about the Night Archie and The Gang finally Graduated:


It was a Cool night.  The wind started to pick up, and Archie thought to himself "Man, we are finally here"  "After what seems like 3/4 of a century (shameless plug) we are finally graduating.

Cool Idea

Jughead agrees with Archie, "Yeah and I can't wait for the After party at Pop's with the spread of food he is got set up there."

Jughead Turns to Betty and asks "Did you bring the Punch".  Betty Replies "No, I thought Archie did".

Fernando Ruiz already came up with a pitch for this story, but when he submitted it to ACP he never heard anything back from them on the idea. That seems to be a common refrain among artists and writers who submit story pitches, or art samples.

Jughead facepalms, "All this great food and nothing to wash it down with, Oh well, I guess Pop Tate can make us all some Milk Shakes."
