The cover for Archie’s “Betty and Veronica Double Digest” this month references an actual, real-world company, Amazon. Traditionally, Archie would stick with parody names for products or businesses.

Meanwhile, Archie’s relaunched title hits its 25th issue this month. Over two years in, the reboot seems to be a resounding success, though Archie still sells classic-style stories in the digests. There’s also the “Riverdale” comic based on the TV show, plus the once-in-a-blue-moon horror books like “Afterlife With Archie.” Overall, Archie now has four separate ongoing continuities of books for their Riverdale-based characters.

IDW’s “DuckTales” comic solicitation is a big, giant spoiler, at least for those who didn’t see the rebooted 2017 series’ pilot episode. While the cover blacks out who the character is, the solicitation text spoils it anyway. That said, since the new TV show launches in September, it might be moot by the time this issue arrives.

Another “Jem” series launches this month from IDW, complete with the cast enjoying… role-playing games?

A reprint of classic Harvey “Casper the Friendly Ghost” stories is out this month. Unlike the Famous Studios theatrical shorts, the comics usually focused on Casper’s adventures in an enchanted forest. That lent some variety to stories, with Casper and the Ghostly Trio coexisting alongside witches (including Wendy), goblins, fairy tale creatures, talking animals, and so forth.
