For several months now, Archie Comics has been releasing Throwback tales throughout its Archie titles. In January, the publisher is bringing back even more of those tales.

A Throwback story is a new story told in the traditional Archie house style that are set firmly in the era featured in the collected editions.  The first of the new throwback stories arrives in Archie Milestones Digest #13 – Best of the 1960s.

Writer Tom DeFalco and artist Jeff Shultz show us what happens when The Archies are invited to play at the Woodstock Rock Festival… and wind up running late to their own performance!

“We had so much fun with the new stories in our 80th Anniversary Digest series and knew we had to find a way to continue that as we brought back the Milestones Digest series,” said Archie Comics Director of Publicity & Social Media Ron Cacace in a press release from Archie Comics. “Our fans have been asking for new stories set in their favorite eras for a while and we’re so happy we could make it happen!”
