Preview: Archie’s Giant Kids’ Jokebook
Archie’s Giant Kids’ Jokebook is a thick, colorful compendium of one-page Archie gags—if you remember the old Archie’s Joke Book comic, it’s basically the trade paperback version. With almost 200 pages of classic Archie gag strips and a backpack-friendly 5″ x 7″ trim size, it’s comparable to the Best of Archie collections that the publisher has been putting out but with shorter stories. Watch for it tomorrow in comics shops and a few weeks later everywhere else. Here’s a sample to whet your appetite.
