Comments

Archie’s releasing a black-and-white collection of early “Sabrina the Teenage Witch” stories. While the description says it’s from 1962 to 1965, the title and page count suggests it does run through the entire decade, including presumably the earliest stories in Sabrina’s own series.

Also out from Archie this month is the Marvel comics digest. The solicitation mentions reprinted stories by Stan Lee, Steve Ditko, Len Wein, and Ross Andru. I do wonder if there’ll be some more modern stories included, such as from the “Marvel Adventures” line from a few years ago.

“Jem and the Hologram” gets a miniseries this month, plus a trade paperback collecting the final run of the series.

“Copperhead”‘ solicitation says it’s the end of the first story arc since the series returned.

Tom Tomorrow’s “This Modern World” is getting a lavish-looking omnibus volume collecting the strip’s history to date. I wonder if it’ll include the strip where Sparky the penguin snarks on the then-current state of the newspaper comics page.
