    March 06, 2018, 01:49:17 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Maybe there's some slight modification to the PDF files they use in the ComiXology app to adapt it to feature-specific things in Amazon's Kindle reader app, and that takes a little while for them to convert the files? Just a wild guess.

    March 03, 2018, 08:34:18 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Oh, and if you're talking about the digital version, then it might have a different release date, too. Amazon's digital comics are really ComiXology's digital comics. Amazon owns ComiXology. Most publishers have a same-day-and-date print & digital release policy, but ACP's might be different, or it could just be an odd fluke.

  • DeCarlo Rules: Comic book shops gor VIXENS #4 on February 28th. Sometimes Amazon may get products on a different date, because the bookseller market is serviced by a different distribution system. Could be later, or sometimes, earlier, but usually only by a few days or a week.

Looking forward to the Archie At Riverdale High trade paperback and for some reason, despite not being all that interested, I'm thinking of picking up Vampironica after seeing #3 in this solicit.

One other possibility just occurred to me, which... if it turned out to be true, I'd find REALLY funny and ironic. What if one of the musical artists (The Monkees, Tegan & Sarah, Blondie, or whomever...) ONLY signed the contract with ACP to allow use of their likeness(es) under the mistaken impression that they'd be appearing in a comic book story with "The Archies"? Which is to say, what if they'd grown up with and been a fan of (the CLASSIC) Archie comic books, and were expecting to get "Archiefied" in a story with... THESE guys?

And then were SO disappointed to discover what the finished product looked like, that they felt that they'd been deceived and tricked??

That would be funny but somehow I doubt that's the case.  Ha ha.

Has the series been cancelled after #5? That's the last issue that I saw on Amazon, and it seems like the entire series was removed around a week or two ago.

Issue #7 was the last to be solicited through Diamond Comics. Whether #6 or 7 will actually see print NOWseems iffy at best. Sounds like ACP may have run into some legal difficulties having to do with licensing rights to the musicians appearing in the series. That probably means no trade paperback collection, either. Or at least, no COMPLETE trade paperback collection.

I hope that's not the case.  I can't imagine the disappointment of Alex Segura and Dan Parent if the Blondie issue doesn't happen.  They both LOVE Blondie and of course Dan has a variant cover on that issue.

I can't wait for next Artist to take over the Archie comic. I'm not crazy about her style. Does any one like it?

I like it pretty well.  I liked Audrey Mok on Josie and the Pussycats and I like her on Archie.  Of course I'd rather have Dan Parent or Jeff Shultz or Bill Galvan, but their art wouldn't go with the current stories. 

I was actually happiest with Veronica Fish out of all the reboot Archie artists.

I've been fine with the Archie reboot, but I have to say I'm kind of surprised it's made it to issue 31.  I haven't looked at the sales, but I can't imagine they're that great these days.  Other than that, pretty standard stuff: overpriced digests that keep getting smaller and a horror title but NOT Afterlife or Sabrina and the last gasp of Cosmo and The Archies.  Oh yeah, and Vixens which I can't imagine will be long for this world either.

I can't say I'm surprised, although I've really enjoyed the book.  It's probably weak sales that's ending it (I haven't looked up the sales), but it also could be because after they got The Monkees and Blondie, they weren't able to get any more well known "guest" bands to appear in the book. 

I can't imagine what the future is for the RIVERDALE comic title because while I've actually been pleasantly surprised by the quality of the stories, Thomas Pitilli's art is horrible in that book in my opinion.

General Discussion / Re: How many comics do you own?
« on: February 15, 2018, 07:05:50 AM »
I don't really collect.  I consume and pass them along or donate them.  Of course there are some faves that I keep, like some Archie hardcover anthologies and some my favorite trades, like The Best of Archie or The Best of Betty and Veronica. 

I also have most of the World of Archie Double Digests form the period where they were reprinting She's Josie. 

Other than that, I don't have the room or a wife who wants to let me store all of that! 

All About Archie / Re: Classic Betty & Veronica is BACK for $2.99
« on: February 09, 2018, 12:30:24 PM »
I don't want to nix it, or throw cold water on anyone, but you know that ACP always seems to announce any new title as "ongoing"... but very few of them have turned out to be. Mostly they last just long enough to generate a trade paperback collection (5 issues), like the previously announced COSMO "ongoing" -- now downgraded to a 5-issue miniseries. That happened before with REGGIE & ME as well, and somehow it doesn't look like MIGHTY CRUSADERS and VIXENS are going to be continuing past their initial story arcs, either. So here's hoping that BETTY AND VERONICA FRIENDS FOREVER breaks the curse. Maybe the demand for more classic stories in the digest format is an indicator of the turning tide -- let's hope so.

Dan Parent already said on Facebook that it would be "at least 5", so you aren't really throwing cold water.  It's just reality.  If it sells they'll keep it.  If it doesn't they won't.  At least they're trying it!  I thought Your Pal Archie was awesome, but it didn't sell.  Maybe B&V can do better!

Dan Parent! Bill Gollher! 

It says it's an ongoing.  Let's support this thing so it doesn't get Your Pal Archied. 

This ROCKS!!!

Reviews have absolutely no bearing on whether a series continues as an ongoing title, or ends. Only sales.

Which is probably the same reason there was no solicitation for a fifth issue of MIGHTY CRUSADERS in the March 2018 ACP solicitations, as well.

Sadly I agree and if this continues Archie comics will go bankrupt unless it be saved when it is bought by IDW who publishes the classic strips or Warner bros since they broadcast the classic strips

Or unless they come out with a TV show that lasts at least 3 seasons and another one on Netflix.  That might help.

I like the looks of Volume 3 of Archie's Big Book.  Volume 2 was Fantasy and those are my least favorite stories.  Volume 3 is Rock n Roll and those are some of my favorite stories.  Also, a Time Police trade paperback.  Pretty cool!

All About Archie / Jughead: The Hunger
« on: January 21, 2018, 11:32:19 AM »
I just read issue 2 of Jughead: The Hunger (3 if you count the "one shot"). 

This is a really good book and since Roberto isn't working on it, it's actually being published. 

The Kennedys artwork is really good and for some reason Joe Eisma did the second half of this issue and his art is fine for this story too.

I actually thought the one shot wasn't that great but took a chance on the regular series and it's much improved over the one shot.

Good story and just enough humor. 

I have no idea how it's selling but it's been a pleasant surprise.
