Preview: Archie Fun ‘n’ Games Activity Book
One of the great delights of summer, back when I was a kid, was sprawling out somewhere with a Big Book o’Fun that was filled with comics, coloring pages, and pencil puzzles. Archie Comics is bringing that back with the Archie Fun ‘n’ Games Activity Book, almost 200 pages of puzzles and activities, all featuring the Riverdale gang. It goes on sale in comics shops on Wednesday, and everywhere else in a couple of weeks. Solicit information is after the preview—so we can get straight to the fun part!
