Preview: Archie Comics Spectacular: School Daze
Just in time for summer vacation, Archie has another big comics collection, this one about school—well, it’s much more fun to read about it than to actually be there, right? Archie Comics Spectacular: School Daze is on sale in comics shops today and will pop up everywhere else in the next two weeks. (Do they sell this in highway rest stops and airport bookstores? They totally should!) Here’s a quick look; catalog information is at the end. Enjoy!
ARCHIE COMICS SPECTACULAR: SCHOOL DAZE
Check out all your favorites–Archie, Betty Veronica, Reggie, Jughead, and more at Riverdale High! Can Archie balance his two-pronged love life and keep his grades up, all under the watchful eye of Principal Weatherbee? Will Reggie be able to continue his chaotic pranks without spending every day in detention? Can Jughead indulge his bottomless appetite when Ms. Beazley’s cafeteria food is so…unique? It’s high school fun in a great pocket-size edition, printed on bright white paper with a cardstock cover.
