Archie Jumbo Comics Digest #332 | Preview
Today’s Archie preview is really something special. It’s a look at Archie Jumbo Comics Digest #332, and for starters, this issue has two brand-new stories, and we have a preview of each. In the first, Archie and Trevor are doing parkour all over Riverdale, much to Jughead’s amusement, and in the second, Trula Twyst hypnotizes Betty to help her break her Archie habit. But the real treat is our complete classic story, “Adventure on Shipwreck Island,” by Dexter Taylor. Both the story and the art are very different from the usual Archie fare, and since it’s a Little Jughead story, we get a glimpse of a youthful Mr. Lodge along with all the cute kids. This is a bit of Archie history worth retrieving. The digest goes on sale on August 3 in finer comic shops everywhere. Enjoy!
