  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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?

Super 'Suckers / Sitcomics update
« on: July 10, 2017, 02:59:15 AM »
Hi everybody,


I hope absence has made your hearts fonder because I've been away a while.  Making 26 episodes of TV and having two young kids can do that to you - especially the kids part.  Anyway, the next two issues of Super 'Suckers (#3 & 4 if you're keeping track at home) will finally be going to press this September.  The delay stemmed from a desire to print five new Binge Book comics at the same time and the fifth book has been taking a little longer than hoped.  The good news is you'll have two hilarious issues this year instead of just one and Jeff Shultz, Glenn Whitmore and Marshall Dillon are all back to keep the vampire comedy consistent.  I will also be printing new editions of all five previous Sitcomics, including Super 'Suckers 1 & 2 with new covers, in case you're into repeat purchases or if you're looking for a gift for the vampire lover in your life.


As for digital, instead of releasing each digital chapter (3 per print issue) as they are completed, I'll be releasing all six new Super 'Suckers digital comics on the same day - Netflix style.  And also note that Super 'Suckers 1 will be split into two digital chapters as well.  The old 64 page digital Binge Book release will be pulled off the website (and comixology) forever so grab that now at sitcomics.net if you want to own that version digitally.


There's other news I can't share yet that should please old fans and create new ones so keep checking the Sitcomics facebook page or join the email list at the sitcomics.net website to stay in the loop.


And if you're not interested in Sitcomics, you probably never got to this sentence, so I won't apologize for taking up your valuable time.   ;)


Thanks,


D. Henry
writer and publisher of Super 'Suckers

YES!! *<-- (If there were a smiley for 'tears of joy' it would go right here.)

I was beginning to despair that Sitcomics had given up. I know there are a lot more profitable avenues of endeavor that you could be spending your time and effort on, so it has to be a true labor of love, and for that I thank you, sir.

September can't come fast enough! I am so looking forward to reading the next Super Suckers binge book!

I'd almost given up hope.
