ARCHIE NEW LOOK SERIES VOLUME 3: MOOSE & MIDGE – BREAKUP BLUES
It’s the third installment in Archie’s dynamic “New Look” series! For years, Archie fans the world over wondered what their favorite Riverdale teens would look like if rendered in a realistic style, and in 2007, Archie Comics answered the question with the ground-breaking, pulse-pounding, media-grabbing story: “Betty & Veronica: Bad Boy Trouble!” The success of that story prompted them to create an entire “New Look” series, continuing with “Jughead: The Matchmakers!” Now, Archie Comics reprints “Moose & Midge: Breakup Blues” from PALS ‘N GALS DOUBLE DIGEST #125-128. When Midge decides to go on a date with Reggie Mantle behind Moose’s back, the relationship dissolves before their friends’ very eyes! Can Betty, Archie and Veronica help the two former lovebirds see the light and rekindle the flame between them? You’ll never guess who comes to the rescue in this captivating story, brought to you by “New Look” scribe Melanie J. Morgan and masterfully penciled in the realistic style by veteran artist Tod Smith, with inks from journeyman talent Al Milgrom. Let’s just hope Riverdale can survive the epic rift!
