Quite a bit of interest this month, including (for a change) the actual “Archie” comic book…

“Archie” #650 is $4 this month due to being an extra-long anniversary issue, kicking off a four-part storyline where the Archies travel the world. Also appearing in the storyline are the Pussycats, the Bingos, and the Madhouse Glads. The Bingos are the band of Bingo Wilkin (of “That Wilkin Boy” fame, nowadays retconned into being Jughead’s cousin); the Glads were a band from the 60s comic “Archie’s Mad House.”

“Kevin Keller” has a New Year’s story involving Mr. Keller. The variant cover’s by comic writer/artist Phil Jimenez.

“Life With Archie” features an appearance by Sam Hill, a now-obscure Golden or Silver Age Archie comic about a private eye. I figured Sam Hill was just considered a “fictional” character to Archie and the gang (per that “Night at the Comic Shop” storyline a few years ago), but guess he’s now considered part of Archie’s world.

Finally, the fourth and final volume of the “Sabrina” manga series is released this month.
