Archie Funhouse Christmas Annual Digest #23 – Archie Comics celebrates the holidays with a new Christmas Annual. This collection of festive stories leads off with the new tale “My Deer Archie.” Pop Tate has a new idea for his Chocklit Shoppe: fresh, homemade apple pies. To handle the Christmas rush he’s anticipating, he gets the neighborhood kids to work for him during the holidays. Both Archie and Jughead sign up, but it will take all of Jughead’s willpower to keep him from eating all of Pop’s profits. Filled with more fun and festive stories, this digest is a great way to pass the days until Christmas.
Pokemon XY Pocket Comics GN – Viz Media releases more Pokemon fun facts, this time from the Kalos region. This collection of comics, puns, and jokes features new starter Pokemon Fennekin, Froakie, and Chespin as they give vital statistics on Pokemon abilities, moves, types, and Mega Evolutions from the X & Y game. Whether it’s to bone up on your Pokemon statistics or you just need a good laugh, this volume is a great way to scratch that Pokemon itch before getting your hands on Pokemon Sun and Moon.
