  • Tuxedo Mark: I'm beginning to think AWA and CHAoS are cancelled, because Archie Comics sent me Jughead: The Hunger #1 as part of my AWA sub.

  • DeCarlo Rules: @TM - "They" is Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa. Just him. HE's the writer of both AWA and ChAoS. It's HIS story. He only writes an issue when his muse inspires him. Plus he's kinda busy being the showrunner and one of the head writers for RIVERDALE, which ACP probably considers a little more important. And from Sacasa's POV, I know television work must pay a helluvalot better than writing comic books. Especially if they're comic books published by ACP. Could someone else write those horror comics? Sure, if ACP's Chief Creative Officer decided to assign the books to someone else. At that point sales would probably just nosedive anyway, so what's the point? Better to let other writers make up their own horror stories using ACP characters.

  • Tuxedo Mark: Yeah, I saw an article a few days ago about that. Can't they make sure that their initial two horror titles come out before they add two more?

Alright! Love the Moose special.

And could Betty & Veronica come out before the next Afterlife be in April? It's the ultimate tortoise vs turtle race reaching it's conclusion!! :)

From what I've been reading, Betty and Veronica have already "come out".  ;D


Oh please, GOD, NOOOOOOOOOO

I really do not believe Trump is a racist (and I am Mexican, by the way). Besides Clinton also has a HUGE list of awful things she has done. But what's done is done. Dems need to stop crying about it and need to stop rioting and burning flags and all those tantrums and man up already.
This one has, and as an Black man, his harping about the Birther issue concerning President Obama was very offensive to me. Hillary did win the popular vote. That's a fact. Electoral College has to go...


funny how dems are fine with electoral college when its in their favor, but when its not they cry.  Also Obama is Kenyan, wasn't cuz of race.
As far as I'm concerned, the Electoral College should go no matter who wins. The only thing that should matter is who has the most votes. Period. "Mob rule" indeed... :tickedoff:


So, you think that the founders where wrong when they created the electoral college?  Great to know!

All About Archie / Re: What's Next For Archie Comics?
« on: July 06, 2016, 02:11:56 PM »
here's my thought (not that you guys care, but whatever).  I both agree and disagree with Musical Necrophilia.  He/She/It makes a valid point when they say its not that good of a reboot.  As do I agree with you daren, when it comes to the term "when" it dies.  My thought is thus, what if ACP still did the reboot, but instead of having multiple floppies, they just make it all into one big digest, that they either release monthly, or bi-monthly (6 per year)?  I personally think that would work.  Plus, charge $10 to $15 per issue for it, (256 or so NEW pages of Stories) (Mmm Mmm Mmm)!

There seems to be 2 types of posters on this forum. Those obsessed with classic Archie and that's the only comic they read and those that read lots of comics and Archie just happens to be one of them. I actually quite enjoy the "What comics are you reading thread?". I get a lot of recommendations from there.

2 other types:
Those who read ONLY Archie Comics (but not JUST classic Archie) = spazaru

Those who read LOTS of comics, but for comics featuring the Archie characters, only really like the classic ones (= me). Not my fault they cancelled NEW CRUSADERS, THE FOX, and MEGA MAN - I enjoyed those, but not Dark Circle titles, Sonic titles, or New Riverdale titles. If Archie Horror goes on long enough, I'm sure I'll probably tire of those (just hanging in there hoping for some kind of resolution to the storylines).

The active threads here generally break down into six main interests:

1 - New Riverdale titles
2 - Archie digest/classic
3 - Archie Horror
4 - Riverdale TV
5 - ACP company/publishing/editorial (including solicitations)
6 - non-comics discussion

The reason there isn't more "other comics" discussion is pretty simple, when you think about it.

1 - At any given time, there are something like 1000 comic book titles being published.
2 - Of those, even the most voracious of comic readers can read only a tiny percentage.
3 - Of the active posters here, there are only a bare handful reading a significant number of titles other than ACP (or at least, a bare handful who have anything to say about them).
4 - Given the small number of other titles (apart from ACP) being read by active posters in relation to the potential number of titles out there, the overlap between any two active posters' reading lists is marginal.
5 - The same titles that any two active posters may be reading may fall on an entirely different range of the spectrum for each reader. In that slim margin of overlap, the comic that most excites you and about which you have a lot to say, may be a title about which I have little or nothing to say.
6 - All of the above being the case, "other comics" discussion tends to peak in "Archie-related" comics discussion (Pixie Trix, SitComics, AstroComix).

Id like to add one to the bottom list:  7 - Not everyone has A Thousand Dollars to spend on Comics Per Week (between ACP and every other CPC.

Went to the library, then I bought some groceries, came back home and just finished watching The Revenant.

wait, your library offers groceries?!  :D

Wish they would go ahead and do a new horror comic (like the one they teased last year)!
I think there next big project is the Josie reboot and if that is a success which in my opinion other than Archie #1 reboot I think it will be more of a success than the other reboots before it. Than they may explore another horror series, but I have no idea what they would come up with.

they teased a vampirella style veronica comic.

11
I'd hire better writers. Even some of the most talked about issues of recent times did not have strong stories.


Such as? Mark Waid? Chip Zdarsky?
I think a lot of these new writers are overrated. They in my opinion can't compare to the old Classic Writers of Archie Comics who brought the quick gags and laughter with every story. It's just not the same anymore.

I completely agree M.K!  I wish we had another B.B instead of M.W or C.Z.  Don't get me wrong, I respect both M.W and C.Z, but I miss the classics!

Four digests solicited, with only one of them (Jughead and Archie #22) indicating the lead story is new. Not good.  >:(

Yes, and only one has a new cover (even the monkey one is re-used but A AND J staring at themselves instead of B AND V staring).  Not impressed either.

Archie RPG / Re: Graduation
« on: April 23, 2016, 02:23:11 AM »
It was a Cool night.  The wind started to pick up, and Archie thought to himself "Man, we are finally here"  "After what seems like 3/4 of a century (shameless plug) we are finally graduating.

Jughead agrees with Archie, "Yeah and I can't wait for the After party at Pop's with the spread of food he is got set up there."

Jughead Turns to Betty and asks "Did you bring the Punch".  Betty Replies "No, I thought Archie did".
