  • 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.

    July 18, 2017, 02:17:43 PM
  • 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.
    July 18, 2017, 02:07:10 AM
  • 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.

I would love to get Archie #18, the main cover looks the best. The Archies One Shot has 2 good covers, the main one & the red & white one. Reggie & Me #4 has 2 good covers the main one & one where he outside of the school.

Me too! It'll be a long time before the well runs dry for Dan Parent's modern updates of classic fairy tale stories.

Re: Sabrina the Teenage Witch #1 one-shot: In this reboot she never even attended high school, and starts college after previously being home-schooled by her aunts? With story and art by the team from IDW's My Little Pony comic? That seems to indicate to me that the story and art might actually be comical/cartoony, so maybe I'll give this one a look after all.

EDIT: I actually missed the interior page penciled and inked by Andy Price when I first scanned these solicits. Some interesting details in that drawing, including Sabrina's t-shirt that has the GROOVIE GOOLIES logo on it, a Chinese take-out box labeled "Lee Ho Fooks" (taken from a line in the song "Werewolves of London" by Warren Zevon; "I saw a werewolf with a Chinese menu in his hand/Walking through the streets of Soho in the rain/He was looking for the place called Lee Ho Fooks/Gonna get a big dish of beef chow mein"), and a pendant (seen hanging from the bookcase) taken from a classic episode of Star Trek. This is definitely starting to look more promising to me. I only hope the story injects some humor into the proceedings.

Midtown Comics hasn't put them up yet on their site. This time all the digests look good. But I simply don't buy because I have plenty already. And I have a lot of those 1000 page books.

Just getting the main Archie book with the Hack cover.

Other covers I like

The Archies One- Shot - cover by David Mack

Jughead: The Hunger - cover by Robert Hack

B&V Friends Comics Annual #253 - cover by Dan Parent

Riverdale - cover by Peter Krause.

I think all three variant covers for Sabrina are nicer than the main one. Can't decide which is best. Why isn't the main cover by Andy Price? I know it's black and white but if the interior is as nice as that cover it's going to be a damn fine comic.
