It’s mostly Christmas-related stories from Archie this month, despite being October. (No love for Thanksgiving I take it, despite Jughead’s love of food?)
“Life With Archie”‘s description (without spoiling things) gives me more optimism for Clay’s fate (then again, Archie isn’t DC…).
There’s one Halloween-themed item out this month, however, the second half of the “Vampirella”-themed “Betty and Veronica” story being published this month, though it’s a reprint from an earlier digital-only release.
Kevin Keller’s getting a second trade paperback release this month, which seems to reprint the earlier issues in his solo run.
Apparently the magazine-sized Sonic comics must be successful, since Archie’s launching such with the Archie gang. Appropriately, it’s themed for Christmas, allowing it to stay on newsstands throughout the holiday season.
