Archie Comics Plans Major Expansion For Fall

Archie Comics Plans Major Expansion For Fall

Archie Comics has seen a massive resurgance in the early twenty-first century. Once relegated to grocery store racks alongside Us Weekly and Cosmo, Archie has been completely reinvented.

ADVANCE REVIEW: Archie #19 – A Guy, A Girl, and a Jughead

ADVANCE REVIEW: Archie #19 – A Guy, A Girl, and a Jughead

Archie #19 is in many ways, your typical Archie story, but it’s typical in both the way it follows a pattern of the franchise since it began long ago and typical in the way the publisher’s revised approach to Archie and his pals has created some of the most satisfying YA comics around.
