ARCHIE & FRIENDS #127
THE SECOND PART OF A FUN-FILLED, FOUR-PART TALE FROM FAN-FAVORITE ALEX SIMMONS!
“The Cartoon Life of Chuck Clayton, Part Two”: Continuing this special storyline, Chuck Clayton takes center stage.  Feeling overwhelmed by all the commitments in his life, Chuck could sure use some help teaching his cartooning class… and he’s about to get it from an unlikely source!  Chuck’s world of collecting, drawing, and teaching kids how to make their own comics takes on new meaning in this poignant tale.  This new multi-part epic comes courtesy of someone who knows his way around both creating and teaching comics, namely acclaimed writer, children’s art advocate, and organizer of the world’s only “Kids’ Comics” convention, Alex Simmons.
