ARCHIE #608
“It Starts With a Kiss”: It’s the double-bill of the century, as the Archies and Josie & the Pussycats co-headline a major concert tour… or so they think! Alex and Alexandria have sneaked behind everyone’s backs to ensure that Josie & the Pussycats are the main act while the Archies are merely the opening band. But the Archies have made Veronica’s cousin Marcy their manager and the ruse is soon exposed. Will the bands get through this dis-chord and once again find harmony?

ARCHIE & FRIENDS #143
“Freshman Year—The Missing Chapters: Chuck”: For years, fans of Archie Comics have wondered what happened in the years before the fabled teens of Riverdale entered high school. How did everyone meet? Were the teachers always at the high school? Did all of Archie’s friends always live in Riverdale? Just when did the “eternal love triangle” first start? In the “Freshman Year” saga, originally presented in the pages of ARCHIE #587-591, readers finally learned the back-story behind Riverdale’s fabled cast of characters. But that wasn’t the whole story! In this follow-up series of stories, writer Batton Lash fills in the blanks, giving readers an even bigger glimpse of what went on with Jughead, Betty & Veronica, Reggie, Chuck, and Pencilneck G. In this story, Chuck’s cartoons of the past come back to haunt him when word gets back to him that a tough kid took exception to Chuck’s none-too-flattering caricatures. The subject of Chuck’s doodles isn’t happy about being “dissed” and has held a grudge for three years! Now Chuck must look back at the copious comics he did in freshman year to see what he did to diss his classmate!

ARCHIE NEW LOOK SERIES VOLUME 4: VERONICA IN “MY FATHER’S BETRAYAL”
It's the fourth installment in Archie's dynamic “New Look” series! For years, Archie fans the world over wondered what their favorite Riverdale teens would look like if rendered in a realistic style, and in 2007, Archie Comics answered the question with the ground-breaking, pulse-pounding, media-grabbing story: “Betty & Veronica: Bad Boy Trouble!” The success of that story prompted them to create an entire “New Look” series, continuing with “Jughead: The Matchmakers” and “Moose & Midge: Breakup Blues.” Now, Archie Comics reprints “Veronica: My Father’s Betrayal,” originally presented in BETTY & VERONICA DOUBLE DIGEST #170 through #173. In this thrilling four-part series, Veronica and her friends face off against Mr. Lodge and his constituents as the teens try to keep a beloved nature preserve from becoming an industrial park! Petitions… posters… publicity… public meetings… it’s all part of a multi-tiered strategy by the teens to bring the plight of the forest to the public. They even enlist a botany professor to join their protest! But when people on both sides of the issue debate, the problem is grayer than ever. Who will prevail? Can the two sides resolve their differences peacefully and constructively? Can a compromise be reached before the trees all come down? It’s the story you just can’t afford to miss, served up in the “realistic” art style that made Betty and Veronica’s “Bad Boy Trouble” Jughead’s “Match Makers,” and Moose and Midge’s “Break-up Blues” some of the most-talked about Archie stories in recent years! Famous superhero art team and Eisner Award nominees Rick Burchett and Terry Austin lend their formidable penciling and inking talents to this intriguing tale, brought to you by “New Look” scribe Melanie J. Morgan.
