Re: ARCHIE COMICS FOR MAY 2017
« on: February 23, 2017, 01:56:15 am »
All of the new 5-page lead stories in the digest titles have had a monthly theme for the last 3 solicitations. The March digests all feature "storybook" tales, April's digests have an "international" theme, and May's digests all have a musical theme. I wonder what they're thinking with this? I suppose those 5-page themed stories could add up to a single floppy comic if they wanted to reprint them, but that seems really unlikely. I guess maybe they're hoping it will encourage a few people to buy every digest title that month, if they didn't normally get them them all?


Exactly I'm more interested in getting all the titles those months when I usually don't. Especially international and musical.

Even though low sales leading to the cancellation of Archie with #666, and B&V with #278 in 2015 demonstrates that the idea of a floppy comic reprinting the new Dan Parent 5-page lead stories from the digests probably isn't workable, ACP could still possibly offer a series of one-shots (or maybe an ongoing series) as a digital exclusive, collecting those new lead digest stories. Maybe an ongoing DE under the umbrella title of CLASSIC ARCHIE would generate some interest in digital subscriptions (or possibly even garner a few new all-access subscribers for Archie Digital). There are a lot of people who might not want to buy a whole $4.99-$7.99 digest issue just to get the one new 5-page lead story if they didn't care for the selection of reprinted stories that might buy something like that.
