Preview: ‘Archie Milestones Digest’ #1
We’re kicking off the week with something a little different: A preview of a new Archie digest, Archie Milestones Digest #1. What makes this one different? The other digests all have a seasonal slant, but this one will pick up on some recurring themes and print stories from each decade of Archie’s 70+ year history. This first Milestones has three parts; the first one presents some iconic moments for the main characters, the second is about trends and fads, and the third focuses on the pets of Riverdale. The digest is out on Wednesday, February 20. Enjoy!
