Archie #641 (Archie Meets Glee Part 1) – Archie Comics comes up with a crossover you have to see to believe! When a wormhole opens up, the kids of Riverdale and William McKinley high schools find themselves in alternate universes and must find a way to get back home. Veronica, in the Glee world, meets Finn and Kurt. In Riverdale, Josie and the Pussycats pursue Mercedes Jones, Kevin Keller is intrigued by bow-tie wearing Blaine, and Sue Sylvester squares off against Jughead. Written by Glee writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and illustrated by longtime Archie artist Dan Parent, this is a crossover fans of Archie and Glee do not want to miss!
Pokemon Adventures Volume 15 Ruby And Sapphire TP – The next chapter in the Pokemon Adventure series starts here! Ruby, son of the new Gym Leader of Petalburg, doesn’t want to follow his father but instead wants to win Pokemon contests. Sapphire, the daughter of Pokemon researcher Professor Birch, doesn’t want to collect data, she wants to win Pokemon battles. When the two meet, it’s more like head-butting than hand shaking, as Sapphire challenges Ruby to a competition. They have 80 days to achieve their dreams while avoiding Team Aqua’s dastardly plans. Continuing to follow the chronology of the video games, this next chapter follows the Ruby and Sapphire games storyline and moves the series closer to catching up to the current Black and White. Kids, adults, and fans of all ages of Pokemon will continue to enjoy this series.
