Everyone loves comic book trivia, but with 75 years of superhero comics behind us right now, there’s always some new obscure fact to learn. That’s why ComicsAlliance is going deep into the minutiae of your favorite characters in our continuing video series. You think you know comics? Well, here’s a few things you might not know!

With Archie's high profile relaunch just over the horizon, this week we're taking a look at America's boy friend, Archie Andrews! Find out Archie's quickly abandoned nickname, what he does with his time when he's not busy being America's typical bigamist teenager, and who the strangest visitors to darken Riverdale's doorway are, as well as several other equally interesting facts.

Show notes:

  • If you want a big, fat collection of classic Archie stories for practically free, The Best of Archie is for you.
  • The critically acclaimed storyline following parallel possible futures for Archie is collected in The Married Life series of graphic novels.
  • You should also definitely be reading Afterlife With Archie.
  • I don't really mention this in the video, but probably the best thing Archie Comics has ever published is Bob Bolling's Little Archie comics, so do yourself a favor.

Watch more installments of You Think You Know Comics? below and let us know what comic book characters we should cover next.
