It looks like Archie’s launching a new digest title for 2014, “Archie’s Funhouse Double Digest.” I have no idea what the “Funhouse” title includes, nor whether it’s replacing an existing digest title.

Despite the blurb for Jughead’s title, pretty sure Riverdale has its share of franchises/chain stores—that mall Betty and Veronica shop at certainly isn’t all locally owned stores, plus there’s Mr. Lodge’s various businesses. Wonder what’s in store for next month’s 200th issue…

Collected in trade paperback form this month is the Archie-dates-Valerie storyline, for those that missed it the first time around. This month’s “Archie” cover also shows the two together.
