Me:  Some of these titles started out as big sellers, but then the sales slowly evaporated.  I’ve seem some of the numbers, that’s exactly what happened.  I think it’s because they focused too much on selling benchmark type issues to the “collectors market” that they lost focus on customer loyalty with people who buy comics to read them, not collect them like stamps. 

I mean I know how collectors think.  It’s why you have 20 issues in stock at TFAW except for that one issue with some kind of shocking revelation or major event.  It’s dumb, but that’s how it works.  So they’re killing Archie to go back to that well one more time to squeeze some more profit out of the title before it’s ended.

I would also note that canceling Riverdale titles is not a new trend.  Jughead, Betty, Veronica, and a few others were canceled over the past 4 years.  The company has also removed their digests from some of the distribution chains that were placing them into so many grocery stores and retail chains.

oldnerdybasterd said: ?!? What other title was cancelled???

Me:  Life with Archie Magazine.  It’s ending in two issues with the Archie dies storyline they’re promoting.

Company representatives like Dan Parent are saying they weren’t canceled, but it’s the same thing imo.  They’re not going to make them anymore, and if sales were great, I doubt that would be the case.

Parent hints at a new Kevin title being announced at the end of the year.  But they said similar things after Jughead was canceled, and nothing came of it.  So I’m just taking that with a bit of salt.

i don’t get these new “cisphobic” blogs. why be so loud about something you’d actually never say to someone else’s face once you get off the computer? lol

Preeeetty sure that is the point?

It’s the whole Internet Tough Guy thing.

But in this case it’s not like an angry middle-class white kid who’s maybe gonna shoot people and be an asshole. It’s people who actually are subjected to horrible treatment by the people they dislike and they’re probably just joking or blowing off steam most of the time.

It’s immature and it’s annoying but it’s nothing to really worry about unless they start to get seriously threatening or something. They’re mad at the cis people who’ve hurt them and they’re making fun of the idea that they’re “just as bad” as people who actually try to oppress them.

Oh please, to excuse it, you have to deconstruct it, when most of these people are being literal.  Stop being such an apologist.  Hypocritical behavior, especially when there isn’t much representation for your group to begin with, is bad and counterproductive.

Some of those middle class white kids that shot up their school were bullied pretty badly.  Maybe you need to stop selling the SJW, white people don’t have problems horse shit yourself?

Why is it that no matter what I fucking say on this site I just get labels thrown at me instead of an actual argument?

You know jack shit about me. You pulled those assumptions out of your ass. If you knew anything about me you’d know that you are barking up the wrongest tree right now.

Oh, I’m so scared, I barked up the wrongest tree and pissed off some fucktard who apologizes for SJW trolls.  I’m in trouble now guys!

That’s not what I meant at all. I’m not trying to scare you. I’m trying to tell you you’re flat-out fucking wrong about who I am and what I think. You clearly don’t know me at all.

I actually agreed with someone who bothered to make an actual argument instead of “YOOOOOU SJW BAD SJTUMBLR UGHHHH”:

But instead of “oh hey I think you’re wrong about people who do that because a lot of them aren’t actually trans and just pull this crap to feel special and use it as an excuse to call people scum and tell them to die and make actual trans people look bad” you had to go and accuse me of being something I’m not.

I’m so freaking sick of it. I think I need to start collecting posts where people have called me an SJW and posts where people have called me anti-SJ. Just going off of what I remember I’m pretty sure both the lists would be equally long at this point.

I’m so tired of this “with us or against us” crap people pull.

It doesn’t matter if they’re trans, they’re slandering the community.  That’s why I called you a fuckwit after you had your conniption.  I have a vested interest in this, it’s why it pisses me off.  And honestly, I don’t care who you are.  Maybe instead of hiding behind shit like “YOU DON’T KNOW ME” and “YOU’RE BARKING UP THE WRONGEST TREE,” your arguments should stand on their own, and all you were doing was excusing the behavior of people going on  KKK-esque diatribes. I’m sorry if pointing out exactly what you were doing hit a nerve.

If I owned Tumblr, I would just shut it down.  Can someone remind me why I’m here again?

That bitching over the wolf hat is all kinds of WTF. Because…it’s a hat? The poster mentions nothing about being a wolf inside? It’s a hat? The poster bought it because she thought it was cute? IT’S A FUCKING HAT?

I hate SJWs so much.

Otherkin are furries that came to Tumlbr and stole the ideas behind transgender identity issues to pretend they are victimized minorities.  They’re entertaining because they use SJW speak but the whole concept behind is bat shit insane (uh oh, I used the insane word, Tumblr users are going to want to burn me at the stake now).

My favorite though is the poster, Kyriarchy, when confronted with the fact white males are raped as children by pedophiles, actually blames the victims for it because she’s such a racist, sexist shit head.
