  • Fernando Ruiz: I don't know where the idea originated for the "Archie meets Archie" story. I know one day Victor Gorelick gave me the assignment to write a story where the current Archie meets the first appearance Archie. It was going to be for a digest celebrating whatever anniversary they were celebrating. That.

  • Mr.Lodge: The first batch of "Memory Lane" stories were the best but were never given the chance to "conclude" properly. The 10th Anniversary one are total crap.....

  • Tuxedo Mark: @Fernando Ruiz I never heard that before! Good to know! :)
    November 16, 2019, 06:08:57 pm
  • DeCarlo Rules: Nice to establish that. I forgot about that Twilight Zone episode! But of course, the phrase "a stroll down Memory Lane" is a familiar euphemism, so TZ took that as a literal plot device. The Memory Lane stories were the beginning of a fertile period for ACP, idea-wise.
    November 16, 2019, 05:05:30 am
  • Fernando Ruiz: Responding to the comments for the "When Archie Meets Archie" review, the idea for "Memory Lane" was mine. I borrowed it from an old Twilight Zone episode and thought it was a nice convenient device for the story.

Quote from: Tuxedo Mark on November 18, 2019, 10:22:12 amIt doesn't help that issues that do come out are often delayed. The next issue of Archie, which is set to conclude the Archie and Sabrina storyline, was originally supposed to come out next week but has already been delayed an additional two weeks, leaving almost two months between issues.

Archie #709 has now been moved up a week to December 4. Still pretty erratic scheduling, though.

Quote from: Captain Jetpack on November 22, 2019, 06:56:52 amHave you have a special time in your life, when Archie Comics were important?

Not particularly. I really don't have anyone in my family that's into Archie. My mom bought me my first two digests, and I later learned my sister had bought her some Archies back in the 1970s or 1980s, so she could learn English, but she's not really into Archie. It's just something that I read for myself and discuss online.

All of the ebooks starting with Crystal Doors were bought due to receiving a promotion in the Kindle app on my phone: buy $60 worth of ebooks in a certain time frame (which I did), get a $40 ebook credit (which I didn't). I contacted their support, and they said, if I didn't receive an e-mail about the promotion (I didn't), I'm not eligible. Then why was the notification sent to me in the app? Why did it tell me to click Activate and then Shop Now? I feel like I've been ripped off, especially since I spent a lot of time going through my digital wish list and selecting precisely which books to buy in order to maximize content.

Quote from: Oldiesmann on November 04, 2019, 01:31:50 amSocial media probably plays a large part of it - there are Archie Comics groups on Facebook (I'm in at least two of them though I don't post much in either), subreddits, etc.

On top of that, Archie isn't putting out as much content as they were 10 years ago - the only new stories we get are either specials/mini-series, stuff related to the TV series or one or two new stories in a Digest. This compares to a dozen or more new stories each month back before they stopped publishing the "floppies" (full-size comics like Archie, Jughead, etc.)

True dat (I'm showing my non-existant '90s street cred). Stuff like the Riverdale reddit is where most of the discussion of Archie's most popular property is taking place. That should, theoretically, leave us no worse off than before, but, as you said, Archie doesn't put out at much as it used to (or perhaps it does, with all of the various miniseries, although I doubt it, and anyway it's more fragmented, what with all of the alternate universes, rather than a "cohesive whole" (which I'm not sure it ever was)). So, I guess my basic point is, without as much new "canon" (classic Archie) material coming out, discussion is naturally gonna slow down.

I don't think so. I think it's due to a few things. When the old forum was wiped out, ten years' worth of real-time Archie fandom history was wiped out, so that discouraged a lot of people. Combine that with the fact that everyone had to sign up for a new account, and a lot of people simply chose not to.

Then there's Riverdale and ChAoS (and soon Katy Keene), which is responsible for the biggest output of new content; they have their own Reddits.

That leaves us to discuss:

*older stories
*older shows and movies
*the storyline in the current Archie title
*the various miniseries that come and go
*the new classic-style stories in the digests

If anyone's up for starting topics on these things, I'll gladly join in.
