World of Archie: The Return of Ginger Schnapp! | Preview
It’s been a while since we have run an Archie preview, but this one is a doozie: World of Archie Jumbo Comics #129 marks the return of Ginger Snapp.
Feast your eyes on this excerpt from The Archie Encyclopedia:
If you’re wondering where Ginger has been all your life, well, it’s been a while. She first appeared in Zip Comics #35 in March 1943, making her just over 80 years old, and she was created by longtime Archie artist Harry Sahle, but she’s been chilling in the vault for a while; it looks like the most recent original Ginger story was from 2014, although she pops up in reprints from time to time. And now here she is, throwing a party for her Riverdale friends, in the lead story of World of Archie Jumbo Comics #129. We have a preview of that story plus a full classic Little Archie tale by Bob Bolling. The comic comes out on April 26. Enjoy!
