Archie Comics has sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of titles arriving October 10. Among the previews are Archie #579, Holiday Fun Digest #12, Sonic X #25, and Tales from Riverdale Digest #24.

TALES FROM RIVERDALE DIGEST #24
IT’S A STORY SO HUGE, IT TAKES AN ADDITIONAL ISSUE TO COMPLETE!
“Civil Chores Part Three”: Yes, you read that right – Part Three! Originally conceived as a two-issue tale, the ramifications grew so epic that a third part was inevitable! The last two issues have turned Riverdale upside down, with half the town’s kids on strike for a better allowance, and the other half opposing them! Of course, the “nays” all have ulterior motives of their own. Now the mysterious figure who claimed they could stop the fighting will be revealed… but will Archie and Jughead’s friendship be forever affected? It’s another issue chock-full of guest-stars from Archie Comics’ past and present, and you can’t afford to miss it! SCRIPT AND ART: Fernando Ruiz.
PLUS: Other new and classic tales! SCRIPT AND ART: Various talents. BONUS: Puzzles, games and pin-ups!

HOLIDAY FUN DIGEST #12
‘Tis the season to be jolly as Archie and his friends celebrate in true holiday style! Archie and crew have long displayed their holiday spirit, and now through the magic of this digest series, many of the Christmas classics of old are re-presented along with new yuletide tales. It’s a stocking-full of good holiday cheer you won’t want to miss!
“Archie’s Holiday Scrapbook”: Relive the cherished holiday memories of Archie and his friends as you pour through their festive “scrapbook” filled with their first Christmas photos and other memorabilia they’ve collected through the years. Along the way, you’ll witness many firsts: Archie’s discovery of mistletoe, Betty & Veronica’s first gift-shopping sprees, Jughead’s first holiday buffet and Reggie’s first mirror! It’s an old-fashioned Christmas you’ll be delighted to celebrate! SCRIPT AND ART: Dan Parent.
PLUS: Classic yuletide tales! SCRIPT AND ART: Various.

ARCHIE #579
“Phone-y Problem”: With yet another of his speeches interrupted by ringing, Mr. Weatherbee declares a ban on students’ cell phones! Is the ban a good “call,” or is the Bee just dialing a “wrong number?!” SCRIPT: Angelo DeCesare. ART: Stan Goldberg.
“Take Your Time”: Archie struggles to figure out the difference between real time and “Veronica time!” SCRIPT: Kathleen Webb. ART: Stan Goldberg.
