Preview: Archie Babies
Archie Babies is notable because it is the first-ever original graphic novel from Archie Comics —they publish a lot of trade paperbacks these days, but up till now they were all published in comic-book form first. It’s also notable for the talent: Mike Kunkel (Billy Batson) is the writer, and veteran Art Mawhinney is handing the art chores. Below is a five-page sample, and if that whets your appetite, there’s another preview at Robot 6. Enjoy!
