  • Vegan Jughead: Good point on the pricing.  The new Josie and the Pussycats trade is only $9.99 and I can't wait for it.  I can't imagine they're moving many digests at retail.  The hardcore geeks like us subscribe but I doubt our numbers are large.

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

This show has managed to do the impossible: make Cheryl Blossom a sympathetic character.  I think Madelaine Petsch is doing an amazing job with her.

Jughead and *Betty* deduce that Hal is responsible for stealing the evidence. :)

Good summary btw.

Voice actors. If there's an Archie movie, it should be an animated movie. Traditional cel animation, not CGI.


You mean like Disney, or like anime?

Is anyone looking forward to Little Josie? I love Josie but I just don't think it'll work in a "Little" story.

They are destroying the comics with the tv show. It is making people hate characters. People are saying they hate Chuck now. I don't hate anyone yet but I don't like Betty after what she did to Chuck. All the years I liked her are over. I cannt forget her torturing him or the actress tweeting it was "girl power." I don't want to see Betty again on the show or in the comics now, and it's all because of Riverdale.


I don't think they can do new shows about anything except Sabrina. The other characters aren't familiar to people and they are not very good except for Josie, but I don't think a Riverdale Josie spinoff will happen.

In my 11 years of loving Archie Comics, one thing has become apparent to me.  They are not so family friendly anymore.

I'm not heteronormative so I don't really care about Archie Comics being family friendly (a lot of people read it for innuendo anyways), but it's transformed into something it wasn't before and something completely alienating to it's original core audience which is pretty bad imo.  There's a way to expand your market without destroying everything.  Marvel Comics made similar mistakes recently too, and now they're back tracking like crazy to keep their old fans because the comics side of their business was tanking hardcore.


In my opinion, I don't really see Marvel backtracking as you say.  I see them wandering into uncharted territory, and loosing a LOT of subscribers!

Marvel is doing a plan to reboot their comics back to like they were before everythong go so messed up recently.  They saw how much money DC Comics started making after they did the same thing.

Marvel made the screw up of thinking SJWs and people from Tumblr actually buy comic books.  They don't, at least not in any meaningful numbers that can positively benefit market share.  I don't know what Archie's deal is, but they went from a huge publishing operation with a firm grip on an 11 year old female demographic to publishing niche titles in comic book stores and now pushing a trashy edgelord TV show that undermines what was formerly their core market.  I don't think they have any clue what the hell they are doing or trying to accomplish in regards to long term planning.  I mean I kind of hate how protective Disney is of their IP with kids, but there's firm business rationale behind that.

I would heart broken if Archie Comics didn't come out anymore. Since I joined in 2013. I feel like something was missing in my life. My mom got the red Marriage book for Christmas one year & I have been a huge fan ever since.

Not saying they're killing it now but compared to then, they're doing great.

Is that why they keep cancelling all the products they solicit? The rate of cancelled solicitations is ghastly. About the only thing that they seem to be doing great on is recycling. Reprinting the same material over and over again in multiple formats. If all you're doing is saying "Oh look, they used to have only classic Archie and classic B&V floppy comics back in 2015, and now they have New Archie, New Jughead, New B&V, and New Josie. So they must be doing awesome now, right?" Well, maybe if you don't count the number of issues they actually come out with over the course of a year (I guess this would be a good time not to mention the Archie Horror titles). But of course you're only comparing to 2015, not slightly earlier when they still had Life With Archie, Kevin Keller, Archie & Friends, or going back a couple more years, classic Betty, Veronica, Jughead and Sabrina. Digest sales have slipped in the last few years too, and that's ACP's real bread-and-butter money. And we're still waiting for that third issue of Adam Hughes' B&V, which launched with great hoopla last summer. Yeah, doing just great.


All good points.  I didn't join the forum to slam Archie Comics.  Besides you're doing a great job of it already!  LOL

Well, that is definitely the illusion that they are attempting to create for the company's image. "The NEW Archie Comics is on the move! There's no stopping us now!" Meanwhile, behind the scenes, they are definitely having problem delivering on their promises and getting new product into print. And there is the stink of desperation in the air, as if they're hanging on by their fingernails, pushing RIVERDALE as the salvation of the company. But if ACP are really The Comeback Kids they're trying to hype themselves as being, then shouldn't more and more new products be arriving in the marketplace every few months, as success builds on success? In reality, I think the sales of New Riverdale comics are not building as they'd hoped (after optimistically hoping that they'd create some synergy by adding more new titles) -- not even holding steady at a modest level, but eroding with every passing issue. They're far from being out of the danger zone of becoming extinct. REGGIE & ME was originally envisioned as a new ongoing series, then almost immediately cut back to a 5-issue miniseries. I wouldn't be surprised to find that both JUGHEAD and JOSIE will not be around by next year. The fact that the last couple of months' solicitations contained a lot of one-shots indicates to me they are already fishing for a replacement for one or both of those titles.

I have been shaking my head, rolling my eyes, face palming myself and just laughing out loud about all the pretty ridiculous things some people are saying. People swearing they are going to kill themselves, move to Canada (which by the way, why Canada and not, say, Mexico? pftt,  bunch of racists,lol), some universities across the country cancelling classes or tests because the wimpy kids are too devastated to study right now, blaming everything but themselves, etc, etc, etc, the silly list goes on  :idiot2: ::)
I mean, seriously? They need to get it together. Accept they lost, accept that Donald J. Trump is the new president of the United States and move on..............Anyway, I just needed to get this out. Moving on  :)

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.
