Prepare For The Maximum Allowable Amount Of Archie In ‘Archie Double Double Digest’

As much as I love Archie Comics, I’ve always had a problem with their publishing schedule, in that there’s just not enough of them to meet my demand. I mean really, how am I supposed to keep up with everyone’s favorite polyamorous teen when I’m limited to Archie, Jughead, Betty, Veronica, Betty & Veronica, Betty & Veronica Digest, Betty & Veronica Double Digest, Archie Digest, World of Archie Digest, Jughead Digest, Life With Archie, Kevin Keller, and back issues of Jughead’s Time Police?

Fortunately, the publisher has stepped up to meet my demand with the upcoming release of Archie Double Double Digest, a special issue brings readers 320 pages of comics for $5.99. Check out a preview of this massive tome below!Here’s the official solicitation:


ARCHIE *DOUBLE* DOUBLE DIGEST #238

You read that right, this special edition of the Archie Double Digest is a DOUBLE Double! That means twice as much content as a regular Double Digest at a great price, so you get much more bang for your buck! Archie and the gang are having fun, fun, fun cruising around town. That is until Mr. Andrews takes Archie’s junk heap away for joy riding when he’s supposed to be hitting the books. Without a set of wheels, Archie’s freewheelin’ lifestyle is suddenly turned on its head and will remain that way until he passes his calculus test. Reggie has a way to ace the test, free from studying, but will Archie be tempted into taking the easy way out in order to reclaim his freedom? Discover which path he takes in “A Calculated Risk.” That story plus so many more, all wrapped in a UV-coated cover!

Script: Angelo Decesare

320-page, full color comic
$5.99 US.

In addition to that story, the Double Double — which may be a coded reference to Canadian donut franchise Tim Horton’s — contains a whole darn slew of classic Archie stories, all wrapped up in a cover where our lovestruck hero is gleefully enduring the devaluing of public education by sharing a copy of a story of teen suicide with his classmates.

It’s… uh… it’s a little funnier in context:
