Preview: ‘World of Archie Winter Annual’ #56
It’s preview time again, and today we have a preview of Fernando Ruiz’s lead story in the World of Archie Winter Annual #56. While the Archie folks have revamped their flagship line of single-issue comics with a new look and slightly more mature storylines, they continue to run new stories in the traditional Archie style in their digests. Ruiz is a veteran Archie writer and artist who does comics in the house style and has also worked on the Life With Archie series (including the final issue). In World of Archie Winter Annual #56, a digest that will be out in comic shops on Wednesday, he comes up with a classic Archie setup: Jughead shows up in some fancy duds for school picture day, but will he still be looking sharp when the shutter clicks? This preview also includes the beginning of a classic story from years gone by. Enjoy!
