The Return of Penny Parker | Archie Digest Preview
Last week we previewed a new Archie digest that brought back Ginger Schnapp, and this week we have a glimpse of another retro character who’s making a comeback, in this case after a very long time. Penny Parker was a detective who showed up in Blue Ribbon Comics #13-15 back in 1941, back when Archie was known as MLJ Comics, and she hasn’t been seen much since… until now, when she gets her own story in World of Betty and Veronica Jumbo Comics Digest #25. We have a preview of that story, plus a full classic tale, for you today. The digest will go on sale on May 10. Enjoy!
