Preview: Archie 1000 Page Comics Extravaganza
The Archie folks love to publish big, fat, colorful collections of their comics, and the latest one offers plenty of value for the money. The Archie 1000 Page Comics Extrvaganza, on sale tomorrow in comics shops and a bit later in bookstores, is a brick of a book filled with classic and newer Archie tales. Here’s a preview with samples of two stories, one by classic Archie writer Frank Doyle and artist Harry Lucey (who was inducted into the Eisner Hall of Fame last year, on my watch), and another by the more contemporary duo of John Albano and Dan Parent. Catalog information follows the preview. Enjoy!
