A lot of variant covers (for Archie) for this month, but I must admit they’re nice looking variant covers.

They’re rebooting “New Crusaders” with a new #1, when the title’s barely a year old? I guess it’ll sell/grab attention like all first issues do, but it seems that Archie’s taking a lot of cues from how Marvel and DC do things. The Sonic and Mega Man books crossing over might also be indication of such.

Looks like Archie plans on collecting the remainder of the manga run of “Sabrina” after all, which is good news. Of course, she has a cartoon coming out later this year, so they needed something¬†centered around Ms. Spellman to offer…
