Comics I might buy



Chuck Clayton’s getting some attention this month, as he appears as the lead advertised character in “Archie & Friends Double Digest,” plus a story in, of all places, “Betty & Veronica.”

Someone might want to point out to Archie that their “Archie” cover has a glaring typo. On the cover [sic]: “OK Reggie we’re, ready for the snowball fight!” Though since it’s not out yet, I imagine there’s still time for the proofreaders to fix the misplaced comma…

I notice as well Archie’s releasing more single-issue (non-digest) comics of their licensed/non-Archie-universe titles (Sonic, New Crusaders) than of Archie-proper, even counting “Life With Archie.” Of course, the digests have higher sales than the floppies…
