  • 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.
    July 19, 2017, 08:26:11 AM
  • 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.
    July 17, 2017, 09:09:41 AM
  • 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.
    July 17, 2017, 03:37:47 AM
  • 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.
    July 16, 2017, 02:56:56 AM
  • 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).
    July 15, 2017, 10:10:46 AM
  • 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?

The complete set of all of Holly G's SCHOOL BITES comics (print versions), plus some extras like her Witches 'n' Whatnot Mini-Artbook, Cuties & Cupcakes Pin-Up Book, and School Bites ID cards, direct from Holly via the Broadsword Comics website.

What I found really interesting was a 1-page prologue/"origin" of School Bites (not the characters, but the origin of the series itself) which did not appear on the School Bites webcomic site. Interesting because the genesis of the School Bites comic is a direct result of the reason Holly G quit working for ACP.

I bought these
oct160441jNOV160434Jdec160556j1606558 ful


You're reading Jem again? What made you change your mind?

I was thinking about buying those Gisele covers, until I noticed that the Gisele cover variants for issues #20-24 are all "Retailer Incentive" covers (so good luck finding a copy for cover price). Too rich for my blood.

The thing that kills me is that IDW is not even letting Gisele have her artwork featured on the main cover for those last three issues where she did the interior art. So I said the heck with it, and will wait for the TP collecting those last three issues she drew.

There were also these RI cover variants for JEM #20 & 21 by Gisele.

Those 2 ones by Gisele are hard to buy because they are too expensive.

Jen Bartel's artwork is really good though. She drew a few issues too (not as good as her covers). Retailer incentive variants are usually around $4 at TFAW but you have to play shipping making them come out to around $8.

I'll wait and see. I suspect the variant covers Gisele drew for JEM will all show up in the trade collection in a Cover Gallery (they may even use one of them as the actual TP cover). It's only going to be a thin trade collecting the last three issues (although the final issue is giant-sized, so I guess that amounts to almost 4 regular issues, which is usually about the minimum for a TP collection).

I like Jen Bartel's covers, too. Also Ross Campbell's cover for #1A (they really should have kept him as an interior artist) and Amy Mebberson's covers for #2B, 2C, 2D, & 2E, Tania Del Rio's cover for #10 (Archie month variant) and Shouri's cover for #10 SUB. Victoria Robado's covers aren't bad either. Not crazy about most of the rest of them, but actually, now that I think of it, there should be enough room in that last TP for cover gallery of ALL of the previous covers and variants.

Shouri and Victoria Robado are the same person. Shouri is just her pseudonym. She does a lot of work with Gisele as well though she's mostly known for her coloring. Most of her art is chibi so you might not like it. She did some covers for the recent Kiss series as well.


They did release a covers book collection for Jem though that was awhile ago and it wouldn't be complete now.
