  • 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.

Archie #20 the main cover looks the best. The Archies One-Shot Jaime Hernandez & Audrey Mok are 2 I will be the two I will be getting, I preorder those on December 23 2016. I preorder Betty & Veronica By Adam Hughes Volume 1 from Amazon back on November 15, 2016. Jen Bartel's cover of Josie & The Pussycats #7 looks the best. Sandy Jarrell's cover of Jughead #15 will be one I'm getting. And of course all the Reggie & Me #5 look great. I'll get those. I have a subscription to Riverdale , I like Francesco Francavilla & Michael Dooney's covers.

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?

They can't. So that TP solicitation will be cancelled unless B&V #3 comes out the month before the TP is due out. They've been doing the same thing right along with solicitations for the Afterlife With Archie and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina TP collections, and they've cancelled those solicitations a number of times. Cancelling solicitations is no big deal to ACP. They do it all the time, and think nothing of it. It's just become part of their normal standard operating procedure.

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.

I remember that, but it was a single collection with all of 2015's new lead stories... and I'm not sure it was entirely clear from the description exactly how that collection differed from other digital exclusive collections. Apparently they didn't do a similar one for 2016.

I was thinking more like a series of digital singles, where they made it clear where the stories were coming from and that there would be a new one every month, and they could offer it for maybe $2 for four 5-page stories. Now that the new lead digest stories have a monthly theme to them, it sort of makes sense.

Of course I will try to get all the Digests, but Money is tight.  However, Post Falls library has this thing setup so that way you can either come in and drop off some Archie Digests, or Take some free of charge, and you never have to return them!  Love that, last time I went, I came back with maybe 7-8 Digests.  Almost got a complete collection of the 75th anniversary digests from that.  Only missing #2 and the latest (my mother bought me #5 for V-day)!

I can't wait for Reggie & Me #5. I wish there was more than 3 covers. Thomas Pitilli did a beautiful Reggie cover which was put on a Archie cover because th s t was before the Reggie title came about. It was actually his first Reggie he ever did. I wish there was more than 5 issues to this series.I wish we can have a petition saying we need more Reggie & Me issues. Because when I first heard about it I thought it just be a regular comic, hey if Joise & The Pussycats can have a comic why not Reggie?
