Preview: Jughead Double Digest #189
It’s short and sweet today. Here’s the scoop on the latest Jughead Double Digest:
It’s time for the big rematch! The ice shuffleboard championship of the universe is on and Archie and Reggie intend to school their Central High rivals good! But when Reggie suffers a sprain that prevents him from playing, it’s up to Jughead to fill his slot to save face. Can Archie wake his pal from deep hibernation to even the score or will team Riverdale be forced to forfeit? Check out “The Big Sleep,” plus many more classic tales!
Note the nice cover by classic Archie artist Dan DeCarlo. Jughead is my favorite of the Archie headliners, and at 160 pages for $3.99, this double digest is value for the money. Look for it in comics shops on February 6.
