  • Tuxedo Mark: My review of "The Best of Buds", a B&V story from 2011 [link]
    February 16, 2018, 09:50:56 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: @irishmoxie -- If they are indeed reprinting those early B&V Spectaculars from the Archie Giant Series, I'd agree it's a good choice (although it makes me wonder why they'd bypass the Betty & Veronica Summer Fun issues, which would be even more desirable to have). The early Life With Archie issues are a good choice as well, and I'll be buying both of those collections. Archie at Riverdale High, one of the dullest titles, is more of a puzzling choice. I won't be buying that one.
    February 16, 2018, 05:48:41 AM
  • irishmoxie: I own all of B&V Spectacular and most of the later issues of Life with Archie but I would definitely get these collections as they are easier to read without worrying about tearing the pages of fragile comics. Digital would be even better for me.
    February 15, 2018, 04:27:51 PM
  • irishmoxie: I don't see that classic B&V Vol 1 from the 50s up for pre-order on Amazon anymore. So it looks like they've ditched that idea for now.
    February 15, 2018, 04:26:14 PM
  • irishmoxie: I think their idea was to go with the more "edgy" Classic Archie ie fantasy stories from Life with Archie. I haven't read many of the Archie at Riverdale High books but my impression was that they were the "issue" books focusing on a particular issue pertinent to teens like protesting school lunches or something.
    February 15, 2018, 04:19:01 PM
  • irishmoxie: I suspect they will start the Spectacular collection with the Dan Parent stuff because that is more distinguishable. Older B&V Spectacular stuff is very similar to regular B&V.
    February 15, 2018, 04:17:08 PM
  • rusty: Dark Horse could still have the rights, even if they are not using them.  Archie may be thinking that the Life With Archie and Archie at Riverdale High books wi be more marketable than the older comics.  If so, I would agree with that thinking.  Cosmo is an interesting choice for a collection, but maybe they are hoping to capitalize on the new series or have other plans.
    February 15, 2018, 08:28:49 AM
  • Vegan Jughead: They also have "Cosmo: The Complete Merry Martian" up for pre-order!  How many of these things are in the works? This could be cool, but as DeCarlo Rules says, it's some kind of weird titles they're starting with.
    February 15, 2018, 07:12:42 AM
  • Vegan Jughead: At least these don't say they'll be black and white!  It says they're  "presented in the new higher-end format of Archie Comics Presents".  That sounds promising if they execute it well, and, you know, actually produce and release the books.
    February 15, 2018, 07:11:06 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: I'm not really sure if the B&V Spectacular collection goes back to include the individual B&V Spec issues from the Archie Giant Series, or starts with #1 of the 1990s series, either.
    February 15, 2018, 12:11:39 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Dark Horse has only really done the 1940s (and early 1950s) ARCHIE and 2 volumes of JUGHEAD, and they haven't solicited a new volume in a couple of years. ACP could certainly start with any title (Archie's Girls B&V, or Archie's Pals 'n' Gals, for instance) besides those two.
    February 15, 2018, 12:08:18 AM
  • rusty: Are the rights to the older titles still tied up with Dark Horse maybe?
    February 14, 2018, 03:54:08 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Seems odd that they'd start off a line of chronological reprint volumes with titles other than the main ones. Whatever happened to the trade collecting the earliest issues of Archie's Girls Betty and Veronica?
    February 14, 2018, 03:49:04 AM
  • irishmoxie: Amazon has pre-orders up for Life with Archie, Betty and Veronica Spectacular, and Archie at Riverdale High Vol 1's.

 Terrence, always with the bankruptcy talk.  I agree the publishing side isn't doing that well mainly because they dropped the ball on the horror titles which were by far their sellers.


Sorry, it’s just I didn’t hate Archie comics, It’s just I am worried about it’s future in these sort of conditions.

 However, RIVERDALE is no longer "mildly popular".  Currently, at least, it's getting really popular thanks to Netflix and a new interest being taken by teenagers.

Good point

Look What I completed (?) a wraparound your pal Archie chocklit shoppe variant cover

Hopefully they get a surplus in cash to release new titles, or rebooted ones, such as the actual "Archie's Madhouse", or maybe a new darker "Cosmo" series.

Yeah a revival of Madhouse in the 'madhouse' brand (aka Archie Horror) will become a black comedy anthology series and as for Cosmo I can deal with that becoming a black comedy series in a realistic environment but how will they make  a funny alien fit to the mature audience with dark humour

I like the idea .. just hope titles are regular


Yeah,I hope so too.


They should just do a Little Archie horror comic, since the original is probably the "classic Archie" title that arguably came closest to that genre in its original incarnation.

Um ,I don't think this should happen since it is aimed for younger audience and is considered lighter as shown with its revival few months ago.But if it is revived it will be similar to Goosebumps comics from IDW

Will the Archie reboot end in about few years and replace with a new reboot?
You mean like DC, Marvel, etc.....  ???


Yes.But will not have a crisis event thing like Marvel and DC


Your Pal Archie seems like it's backing off the more extreme reboot of New Riverdale titles for ACP, just like the 2016 DC Rebirth seems like it's backing off a little (still not far enough for me) from the earlier 2011 DC New 52. Both companies lost a lot of former readers because the earlier reboots were too extreme, and now that some few years passed and the previous reboot lost a lot of its momentum (and sales), they're desperately trying to appeal to the old readers to get them back.


I don't think you'll be seeing any more New Riverdale titles launched, but Your Pal Archie is sort of testing the waters, while not exactly a real return to where they left off with ARCHIE #666. They're trying to find some compromise to appeal to new readers while not losing old ones.

Maybe,I guess they are just making this series to gain back the old readers ,However time change and people will probably move on besides the company will still focus more on the reboot since it gain good reception and Your Pal Archie is still a spinoff and is  aimed for some  retro all age readers.Heck I kinda like Dan parent's new style it kinda suits him just fine.

I have a feeling that Reggie & Me will return. In the last issue it said it would. I can't wait for it.


yeah,I hope so too.

What kind of bothers me is that if they do go the route of someone being killed in a street race - Reggie and/or Archie would realistically wind up in court and go to jail for manslaughter.  They can't just go "oh I am so sorry this will affect me forever ;__; " and that'll be the end of that.

I know, I know, comic book logic and Archie Comics waving off issues like this, but, it would bother me.


You know after reading what you said ,I agree with you having someone killed off during the race and have someone wind up in court and in jail will be stupid especially the part where the series will change tone it's kinda stupid.

Also someone going to court/jail would bring the whole mood of this series down in my opinion. I would stop reading it. If I wanted drama, I'd watch/read Riverdale :p

Yeah i agree with that as well.

Hopefully it is a dream or a fake-out death.

Yeah ,I hope so too which will probably won't happen in real life.(our real life that is)

Guys, I understand you're angry and not happy about the Riverdale series which  is unfaithful to the source materials roots that is comedy including myself and that it began with low ratings but you have to take your time because sooner or later the ratings on the Riverdale series will begin to rise up because of the early positive reception from critics and probably viewers ,its ratings will rise in about few weeks and if it does maybe it will be renewed for few seasons or not , I means it’s just a slow start with  less ratings ,most shows started out this way. What could possibly go wrong?

Still however I wish Archie comics should just  make a sitcom or a comedy drama series based on the source materials classic and reboots roots that is comedy make it not connected to 'Riverdale and air on Netflix or maybe MTV or Freeform.

All About Archie / Re: A proper Archie live action series
« on: January 08, 2017, 09:49:12 AM »
They could have made something a la Freaks and Geeks, for example. It is drama with comedic tones.
You know that could work as well,Though i think it should be 50% comedy and 50% drama.


Why wouldn't it work? It would work quite well if they had the right writers. What's wrong with being "traditional"?? And if the Archie comedy is "nothing special" according to you, then why has it been around for so many years? Clearly they were doing something right.

Yeah,I am with you,Tradition is not bad I mean the comedy element in archie comics has been there for many years

Alternate title :Is it time that archie comics should cancel the whole  sonic the hedgehog comic book line and "revise" the archie action brand like the reimagining of archie's explorers of the unknown, pureheart the powerful,The reimagining homage of archie adventurous stories from the 70s and The Man from R.I.V.E.R.D.A.L.E. or at least the archie version of "agents of SHIELD"?


I know what you are saying "Letting archie comics cancel sonic the hedgehog? ,it's stupid and ridiculous" that's what  you are going to say but there is the reason why i have to say this,You know the Sonic the hedgehog comics looks great  especially to fans who read for many years that was "then" This is "now" and "now"  the line  didn't get the huge sales like it once had many years ago infact the "sonic mania" is dying down  and no one is almost interested in video game comic books anymore .


And it is for the best  that Archie action and SEGA  should cancel the whole Sonic comic book line after many years for its run  and should end  the main sonic the hedgehog series with a milestone issue like maybe 300 or 350? and to let it end with a bang.


Then maybe have "Archie Action" revise its brand by replacing the sonic comics books with the reimagining on the real "archie action-adventure"  line like archie's explorers of the unknown, pureheart the powerful,The reimagining homage of archie adventurous stories from the 70s and The Man from R.I.V.E.R.D.A.L.E. or at least make a archie universe  version of "agents of SHIELD" they would have some laughs like their original line but with tons of action and adventure something like a comedy-action movie or something.

So what do you say is it time that both archie comics and Sega should end the sonic the hedgehog comic book run after so many years and replace them with "original" archie action comics ?

All About Archie / something about CW riverdale that bothers me.
« on: May 15, 2016, 10:52:21 AM »
Hey guys i am back now i know that erasing my old account in this forum is unforgivable but at least i started new with a same old username but with a new password so anyway back to my current topic.

As you know the good news is that CW greenlights riverdale which is great  :)  but there is something that bothers me  ???

Seeing that  riverdale will  just a  drama series with dark elements it made me wonder, Shouldn't CW and archie comics at least make a archie riverdale series as a "teen sitcom" or maybe a tween sitcom that should be aired on nickelodeon or disney channel instead.


I mean sure we want drama but make the archie live action series as a  comedy series, Why? because the main source material of archie comics (minus the spinoffs,the adventure,the horror  and action version)  are always comedy which was the reason why it was successful back in the day.


I mean why would archie comics and CW make a drama version of archie riverdale series without laughs  i mean sure the company gains success thanks to its drama spinoff the married life and the horror title afterlife with archie but to have  a series with dark elements and have the characters find out  dark secrets in this town and not be faithful or loosely faithful to the source material that's unforgivable ,It needs to be a teen sitcom with a element that the source material needs "comedy" i mean yes we also need little of the drama elements including teenage issues for some special episodes if it is a "teen sitcom" .So what i am saying is that the live action archie series should be comedy not some dark teen drama series.


and if this show gets mixed reviews and will never be renewed for a future season  then archie comics and CW should regret that they should have made a teen  sitcom instead or at least  make it as a disney channel/disney XD/Nickelodeon sitcom.
