1/27/2016 – This Week From Archie Comics!


This week from Archie Comics is “Archie’s Funhouse Comics Double Digest” #18 and “Pep Digital vol. #178: Agents Betty & Veronica (Digital Exclusive).”  Archie Comics always promise a fun lineup of titles for each week and whether or not you prefer the classics or the Mark Waid reboot, there’s something for everyone.

Might I recommend giving “Pep Digital vol. #178: Agents Betty & Veronica” a read.  The digital comic, out Friday 1/29th, features a script and art by iconic Archie artist, Dan Parent.  “The All-American Girls from Riverdale” star as Agents B and V and the 86 page story features fan favorites such as Cheryl Blossom, Dilton, and Jughead.  We also learn that Reggie Mantle III is writing his autobiography.  “It’s 3,500 pages long and he’s only up to age 7!”

Let’s take a look at what Archie has in store for readers this week!
