Archie Comics has sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of The Adventures of Little Archie, Archie Double Digest #187, Jughead #188, and Sonic X #31.

THE ADVENTURES OF LITTLE ARCHIE VOLUME TWO

Yes, it’s another great entry in the ARCHIE CLASSICS reprint series, now with a new 6 x 9 trim size that lets us pass the savings on to our readers! Over the years, we’ve received countless requests to reprint the classic LITTLE ARCHIE stories. In 2004, we honored that request with a special edition focusing on some of the greatest Little Archie adventures ever written and drawn by Archie Comic’s equivalent of Carl “the Duck Man” Barks, our own Bob Bolling! Now, we’re back with another heaping helping of thrilling tales from the mind of Bolling, along with hysterical slapstick tales by Dexter Taylor! Included is a brand-new tale from Bob Bolling called “Dragon of Doom”: Mad Doctor Doom and Chester are back to bad ‘ol tricks, this time using a giant dragon fly to steal armored cars! It’s up to Little Archie, Chic and Kimberly to stop the dastardly duo in this 22 page epic!
SCRIPT AND ART: Bob Bolling.
PLUS: Classic tales of Little Archie!

JUGHEAD #188
“Soft in the Head”: Leave it to Jughead to create the perfect (for him!) utilitarian fashion – a hat that’s a pillow, so he can nap on the go! “The Wrong Stuff”: In a story “stuffed” with a unique teen, his baby sister, a stuff-your-own teddy bear, and a token good for a year’s supply of corn dogs, what could possibly go “wrong?” “Dressed for Distress”: The unimaginable has happened: Archie convinces Jughead to buy a suit, and the shirt and tie crowd will never be the same! “Go Nuts Donuts”: Just what is making Jughead mysteriously run off whenever his beeper sounds? You “donut” want to miss yummy answer!
