Visit Murder-Free Riverdale In 'Best Of Archie 2016' [Preview]
Something that's been overlooked pretty often since the big Archie Reboot is that the company is still publishing stories featuring the classic, gag-centric versions of the characters. It's publishing a lot of them, actually --- every single Archie Digest features a new lead story about the gang, and in 2016, that amounted to over 300 pages of new material in that classic Archie style. Now, it's all being collected in the Archie: Best of 2016 Digest Annual, a 348-page digital collection out next week. Check out a preview.
Hedging Your Bets #20: Prelude to Worlds Unite
With almost 300 issues in the core series, Archie's Sonic The Hedgehog stands as the longest-running uninterrupted American monthly comic book that's currently being published. In Hedging Your Bets, I attempt to get up to speed on Sonic the Hedgehog, challenging the odds to hopefully make it all the way to the finish line. This week, we gear up for Worlds Unite, ask the question of whether any of this matters, and find more reasons to kinda love Knuckles the Echidna.
Hedging Your Bets #14: Shadow Fall
With almost 300 issues in the core series, Archie's Sonic The Hedgehog stands as the longest-running uninterrupted American monthly comic book that's currently being published. In Hedging Your Bets, I attempt to get up to speed on Sonic the Hedgehog, challenging the odds to hopefully make it all the way to the finish line. This week, the spotlight falls on Shadow the Hedgehog for the ultimate in alien terror!
Archie Goes Trendspotting In 'Double Digest' #275 [Preview]
Of all the improvements that we've seen from the folks at Archie Comics over the past few years, the most incredible might have been their response time to trends. There was a time, as recently as ten or eleven years ago, when attempts to capitalize on what was hot among the the kids these days could take years, to the point where I once saw a comic where Jughead wore a shirt that said "Don't Taze Me, Bro" about two years after that particular meme was in the consciousness. Which, now that I think about it, was probably the least worrying thing about that choice. But no longer! Witness Archie Comics Double Digest #275, where the teens from Riverdale become obsessed with Cosmo GO!, a very familiar phone game about catching cute characters through the magic of augmented reality. Check out a preview (along with a look at the vintage stories that are published alongside it) below!
A Double-Shot Of Hedgehog-Based Entertainment in New Sonic Previews
I may not know much about Sonic The Hedgehog, but there's one interesting little piece of trivia about the comics that I am absolutely fascinated by. Despite the fact that DC has recently returned Action Comics and Detective Comics to their original numbering, placing them somewhere in the mid-900s, the core Sonic the Hedgehog comic stands at 285 issues and counting as the longest-running monthly American comic book that has not been rebooted,renumbered, or otherwise restarted. It's been on the stands every month since 1993! Throw in all the spin-off titles, and that means that there's a lot of Sonic content out there. So much so, in fact, that with Sonic Universe hitting #89 next week, there's enough Sonic content out there that the reprint-focused Sonic Super Digest is on its 17th issue. So why not celebrate the continued reign of a blue hedgehog who runs fast with a preview of both titles?
Eggman Won't Be Bossed Around in Sonic Universe #83 [Preview]
No one ever said being bad was easy, but Sonic the Hedgehog's main rival Eggman just can't buy a break. Not only does Eggman constantly have to deal with the Blue Blur and his friends mucking up his latest world domination plan, but he's also got all the other evil villains of Mobius to contend with. Now, Eggman's got to turn his eye from fending off Sonic to recapturing his own fortress from a devious duo in order to keep his spot as Big Bad Numero Uno. Fortunately for Eggman, his genius in creating robots to do all his dirty work for him will come in handy. Where two wizards might pose a problem for just one mere man, no matter how great his intelligence, they're hardly a match for an army of Egg Bosses. When you absolutely, positively have to put some up and coming villains in their place, what better tactic than to throw everything you have at them. Check out Eggman going big or going home in the preview for Sonic Universe #83.

What could possibly happen next for Silver? You can find out in this advanced look at next week's issue.
