    People will come out of the woodwork to bash Frank Miller or George Lucas, but something like this, they could care less.

    'Nuff said.

    Its a bit different.. is it not?

    Miller puts his work out there to be critiqued, as does Lucas. This womans alleged behavior is an internal issue, and we're talking about a woman being accused of shouting "penis, penis, penis", and making a few other penis comments. What surprises me is that Archie comics is even still around.

    I don't follow them... how healthy are they as a company?
    $3.99 IS TOO MUCH FOR A COMIC!

    They're starting new lines of comics and did day, did date digital before anyone else, and have dozens of new solicitations every month.

    So... they're doing just fine.

    Here's an overview of 2010 sales.

    Archie tends to sell better outside the Direct Market so their single issue sales are outsold by their digests.

    This is NOT good news for the archie company!The longer shes around, the more damage is going to be done.This is going to last for years,and be VERY costly,on many levels to the company.

    The behind the scenes world of Archie Comics is pretty ruthless. Just ask Dan DeCarlo, Ken Penders and Rich Buckler. Pretty surprising for a company that produces humor titles.
