Atlas/Seaboard message board - Posted By Star Brand (starbrand) on 31st Jan 17 at 9:55pm
I can't find the Atlas Archives message board. Is it gone? I'm on my phone so things might be skewed for me.

I think it's been gone for quite awhile. Posting slowed to a snail's pace. He probably gave up on keeping conversations alive since Atlas quit printing new material.

Thanks.

It doesn't look like he updates the page and maybe hasn't for a while. I just purchased two of the more limited Atlas variants and I wanted to look at his information on the books. I think all the regular titles are up to date, but he has nothing on the Atlas Unified stuff. Maybe he got disgusted because he knew the end was coming. One of the variants I picked up was limited to 250 copies and the other was a 1 in 50, so not sure of the print run on that one. BTW, the link for the Atlas/Seaboard checklist in the checklist drop down menu does not work.

I had high hopes for the line after Jason Goodman sent me two of their first comics. They were written by J.M. DeMatteis and they were the best superhero comics that I'd read in a long time. I fully intended on supporting the line. Then I read that J.M. DeMatteis was parting ways with the company. I lost confidence. Then I saw Tony Isabella's name associated with the company and decided it wasn't for me. When they started flooding the market with variants, I knew it wasn't for me. Think about what it means to have a comic limited to 50 issues. Only 50 people can EVER have a complete set of their comics. Really? Only 50? That is an absurdly small number. I think everyone got disgusted, especially after the long overdue delays. If I wanted to just hoard more and more comics until every room in the house was filled with white comic boxes, I wouldn't mind owning a full set of the new and old comics. I may still go for a complete set of the old stuff, but dead and often worthless comics don't excite me as much as keys. If I was to buy the newer stuff, it'd be the really hard stuff to find that had a very low print run. I think now is an excellent time to buy the stuff, it's just not for me.

As far as the Atlas site goes, it's VERY difficult to stay excited about one company after you've allocated such a disproportionate amount of time to it. I think he should've kept the messageboard going. Even if he was burnt out with it, others could talk or chat about it. He had strange people on his board. One guy said Atlas had a deal to get their books in Walmart. Jason should've had the Trademark secured before he published anything. That was clearly bad judgment.

The page is back online now. The files were still on my recovery hard drive. I saved everything that I could from my hard drive that crashed, but it will take years to get the folders and file names corrected and migrated to my new computer. Most of the scans on that page are linking to photobucket. Photobucket redirects to their page now and it looks like crap.

Thanks!

Atlas did a great job hyping their line when they first came out. I seem to remember Jason being very accessible, and I know there was at least one guy on the comicspriceguide message boards who was absolutelyin love with the new Atlas books.

I always wanted the Iron Jaw variant of Wulf #3, so that was one of the books I picked up. I added the rest of the books I don't have to my want list, but most will only be if they are dirt cheap.

Re: Atlas/Seaboard message board - Posted By Star Brand (starbrand) on 28th Jun 17 at 10:03pm
I think the print runs are pretty low on even the non-variant issues from that line.

I need a reason to migrate the page to a host that works. I think "dirt cheap" is the way to go and only for the lowest of the low print runs.

The owner passed away in 2017. {Cry}

Maybe he took it down early due to poor health.

Wow! I always thought he'd offer more money than me for My Secret #2. He passed away knowing he was one issue away from a complete set.

J.C. Vaughn wrote the article. J.C. seems to have a rather large clique of friends. I'm starting to feel like I'm the only lone wolf posting comic archives.
