Over the past few years, I've been completely thrilled by the new approach that Archie Comics has taken with their characters. The Life With Archie series, the introduction of Kevin Keller, crossovers with Glee and KISS, it's all been interesting to see, and pretty entertaining to read. But it's not the
This year's most anticipated crossover -- by fans of blue video game characters, at least -- is unquestionably Archie's Worlds Collide, in which Sega's Sonic the Hedgehog and Capcom's Mega Man team up for the first time ever. We've been pretty excited about this story around here ever sinc

It's a great run, combining Del Rio's fantastic manga-inspired artwork with an ongoing Harry Potterish story of a magical world in the grips of a conspiracy and rebellion, with a huge helping of romance thrown in for good measure. The only real flaw is that if you weren
It's an age old question...or, at least, a 70-year-old question: Betty or Veronica?
The two female points of the love triangle at the very center of publisher Archie Comics have always formed a sort of either/or dichotomy for those male readers envious of Archie Andrews' predicament, being seemingly forced to choose between two ideal girlfriends of opposite natures.

Between the $40 pinboards, the $35 mugs and the occasional $1,000 framed sketch of Batman riding a unicorn, this year's gift guide has skewed a little toward
