If you are like me, you probably don't want to fork up the money to buy the various Archie, Betty and Veronica, and Jughead comic books each month. And while there is now an app on iTunes that enables you to buy some of the digests for .99 to a 1.99 and even free to read on your ipod, its still at times hard to justify.
But when I saw this, who could resist. The Best of Archie Comics brings 70 years worth of short story comic books about Archie and the gang. It is categorized by decade with a brief description of the culture of that decade. It also contains descriptions of each story (2 on each page)and it even includes samples of the comic strip series (which itself has its own collection book somewhere on Amazon). It also includes the the Archie comics when they were little kids!
Another great thing about this book is that it includes other stories about other characters you would often see in the digests such as Sabrina, Josie and the Pussycats, and even forgotten ones such as Super Duck, Ginger, and Wilbur.
This is a great book and I am enjoying it immensely! Its great seeing the evolution of the comic digest and how it is revamped to match our current decade. I definitely would recommend this book to anyone that has ever been curious about Archie's long run and how much it has changed, or if they simply would like to have a collection of some of the best work.
The only downside to this book is that it couldn't cover everything.Read more ›
The title of the book is somewhat misleading, as it includes some non-Archie material. The intro states that the stories were pulled from various Archie Comics humor titles, so the publisher included other MLJ characters such as Wilbur Wilkins, Ginger Snapp, Super Duck, Katy Keene, L'il Jinx, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, and Josie & The Pussycats.Read more ›
