Didn't get to go to the local comic store for Free Comic Book Day this year. I wouldn't have picked up Archie #1 anyway, but it would have been nice to check some of the other stuff and maybe buy some comics if they had some older Sabrina stuff. I guess I can do that any day though with less crowds.



Most LCSs use FCBD as an excuse to run a sale, so it's worth braving the crowds. Besides, it's fun to hobnob with fellow comic book fans and collectors, or just interested newbies. Some stores run it as an annual party with refreshments and contests and other associated events.
I have been before and they have had soda and lemonade and pizza. It is a nice environment, but when you have a young child there with you like I do it is better when the crowds are thinner. Plus this year I had another engagement that day so it wasn't going to happen anyway.

From seeing the sneak peak of the trailer before it was taking down what really gets me down about this whole thing is when they are taking out the whole "innocence" of Riverdale. Archie comics and Riverdale is innocence and this show seems to be far from what the comics have established for so many decades.



I'm just going to chalk that up to your not having paid that close attention to the information trickling out about Riverdale up to this point. It's a pretty short hop between travesty and tragedy for fans of classic Archie Comics. Why would ACP allow it? They've abandoned any hope of fidelity to the spirit of the original comics. At this point they're just hoping to get some notoriety for generating shock waves. It's the old concept of "no such thing as BAD publicity".


"Archie Comics? Do they still make those??"
Oh No!!!! I have been paying attention to the craziness that has been going on the past few months with this show. This was just the last "laugh out loud" moment I got from the trailer.

I purchased the following 1st Series Sabrina The Teenage Witch comics.  #'s 31, 37, 39, & 54.


eBay?
Yes, all I really collect is Sabrina titles including the new Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. The digests I get and read and pass them onto my 9 year old daughter who reads them and then she sometimes cuts the covers she likes off them or gives some to her friends. The more kids that get to read the digests that makes me happy so I keep purchasing them every once in awhile.

I get that and am inclined to agree.  WE would rather see that.  Archie Comics is trying to survive as a business.  The way we liked it wasn't working.  I wish it was.  I could have gone on forever that way, but in a way I also can accept change.



It is not my job to insure the survival of Archie Comics. It is their job as a publisher to deliver a product that I can be excited about and love, and in exchange I shower them with the manna of my consumer dollars, by which they receive their sustenance. If they are not servicing me with the type of product I want, I don't owe them anything. Every single individual consumer has that choice to make on his or her own. I don't have to fall into any lines or get with any programs. I have the freedom of choice to reject what is offered if it's not agreeable to me, with no strings attached. If they continue to fail to service me as an individual, then we will have to further grow apart and will eventually come to a parting of the ways. For Archie Comics' sake for their own survival, I hope they guess right, but on the other hand, maybe Archie Comics' survival as a publisher is not in MY own best interests. Maybe it would be better if ACP died the real death that eventually happens to most comic book publishers, because it's been proven time and again that characters can outlast publishers. Maybe I improve my chances as a consumer if IDW or some other publisher picks up the ball. That's up to ACP. Depending on what decisions they decide to commit to, I will react favorably or negatively. What I will NOT do is mollycoddle them like a venerated but enfeebled grandparent.


So there seems to be a fundamental disconnect here between us. I am not here to service Archie Comics, they are here to service me. It is the same deal for EACH individual consumer, so each gets to make that choice. We don't have go along with the will of the majority for the good of the publisher.


And I never suggested otherwise.  Just saying I'm keeping an open mind.
My mind will be wide open to change the channel once I watch the first 30 minutes of it. :)

Mine is a tough choice between Sabrina's boyfriend Harvey Kinkle. He is clumsy/accident-prone like Archie, but he is nice and loyal much unlike Archie. I also really like Salem who can be very sarcastic most of the time.

You guys seen the official Riverdale trailer?

I hate it.
Definitely not the Riverdale I have read about for so long in the comics.
