Archie Continues Celebrating 75 Years In New Digest


With Riverdale set to debut on The CW in just over three weeks, it comes as no surprise that one of comics’ oldest publishers is putting its best foot forward in an attempt to keep new and old fans alike engaged. As such, Archie 75th Anniversary Digest #5 aims to continue celebrating the legacy of the titular character in style.

Collecting classic tales featuring the likes of Betty and Veronica, as well as Archie Andrews himself, this handsome tome features some gorgeous cover art courtesy of fan favorite Dan Parent. Not only that, it bears a cover price of only $6.99. When taking into account that we’re dealing with a page count of 224, that’s bang for your buck, to say the least.

With new waters being consistently charted in the critically acclaimed and recently relaunched Archie and Jughead ongoings, reminding readers what paved the way with collections such as these is a pretty solid idea. Trade paperbacks may be all the rage, but compact offerings like this have definitely found their niche and there’s a reason why they’ve endured.
