We’re getting a “Game of Thrones” parody in “Archie”?! Not the most kid-friendly thing to parody, I suppose. Granted, I thought Jason Fox in “FoxTrot” liking “Game of Thrones” was a bit odd, though more for his aversion to anything involving romance/girls/”cooties,” given the show’s sexual elements. (I’m sure Jason loves its heavy violence…) But I suppose if “Sesame Street” can get away with a light parody of “True Blood”…

Archie’s recently acquired dog Vegas gets another cover appearance on “Jughead and Archie Jumbo Comics Digest.” (By the way, another “Jumbo” digest?)

Unless something’s changed, they misspelled the name of Sabrina’s hometown in “Chilling”‘s solicitation. It’s “Greendale,” not “Glendale,” unless the Spellmans have moved to Milwaukee, which has two towns named such as suburbs.
