Archie Comics has gotten a lot of publicity with its realistic interpretations of the Archie gang, and the latest installment to get this treatment is Pals-n-Gals Double Digest #125, that features the break up of Midge and Moose – and you aren’t going to believe who Midge is dating.

SCRIPT: Melanie J. Morgan.
ART: Tod Smith (pencils) and Al Milgrom (inks).
PLUS: Other new and classic tales!
SCRIPT AND ART: Various talents.
BONUS: Puzzles, games and pin-ups!

Feeling confined by Moose’s possessive nature, Midge decides to try an experiment – namely dating Reggie!  We all know this will make Moose fly off the handle, but this time it won’t have an “all’s well that ends well” resolution.

Can Archie and his friends help pick up the pieces of this shattered relationship, or is it better to leave them where they lay?


Pals-n-Gals Double Digest #125 arrives October 1, 2008 for $3.69.

  1. Wow. Don’t recall Tod’s pencils ever looking quite so… Grummett-y.

    Any rumors of a TPB collecting all the new-look Archie stuff to date?

  2. I personally love the new art-styles; you can’t go wrong running the new stuff alongside the old, right? But be real; a comic that has had the same artistic direction for 60 years, whose mandate is to always be drawn in the “house-style”, will probably never feature any drastic chage!

    It’s too bad, really. All they’d really have to do is make one title featuring several new artists. Why not make Pals & Gals an edgy-book? All the other titles can remain the same.
