JUGHEAD’S DOUBLE DIGEST #138
It’s another walk down memory lane, only this time it’s Jughead doing the walking! In 2007, fans were thrilled to read the entire first issue of ARCHIE COMICS from 1942, reprinted in its entirety in ARCHIE DIGEST #236. That issue was augmented by Archie’s first appearance from PEP COMICS #22, as well as a brand-new tale where the Archie of today met the Archie of yesteryear. Now, history repeats itself all over again as we present 1949’s JUGHEAD #1 in its entirety… along with a brand-new tale of Jughead meeting his own earlier incarnation! Enjoy the crowned one’s antics in hysterical tales as he gets mixed up with weird science experiments, football foul-ups, and his cousin, Souphead! All this, plus the first-ever appearance of Moose, too!
SCRIPT AND ART: Various talents.
PLUS: “When Jughead Meets Jughead ”: When Jughead accidentally wanders down “Memory Lane”, the same street that Archie found himself meeting himself on in ARCHIE DIGEST #236, well it’s déjà vu all over again! The Jug of the past is fascinated by the modern Jug’s gadgets, while the Jug of today can’t believe how many hours of entertainment a quarter could buy in a 1940s movie theater! And that’s just the start of their crazy comparisons and contrasts. Don’t miss the double trouble fun – order your copy today!
SCRIPT AND ART: Fernando Ruiz.

    I know that I’m a terrible person, but what is going on with that Sabrina cover?

    Is it wrong to want the old Sabrina comics back? I just can’t get into the manga style.

    Got to write these release dates down for the wife. Those double digests make some great little reads!

    Now I just wish they would publish a digest format republishing their super hero line!

    Thank for the Archie Fix! :-)
