Archie Comics has released a preview for Archie 1941 #3 ahead of Monday’s Final Order Cutoff, and, like most Archie previews, it comes with a few panels from the comic relettered into a strip teaching people how to pre-order. Except these strips have been getting more aggressive lately. We’ve already seen a lack of pre-ordering lead to a fatal car crash, and now, in this latest comic strip, when Archie forgets to place a pre-order, he gets punched right in the face!
Jeeze, if the situation is that dire, why not try to find a better way for the comic book industry to survive?
Archie 1941 #3 hits stores on November 28th, but tell your retailer to pre-order you a copy by Monday, or who knows what Archie will put in its strip next week?!
ARCHIE 1941 #3 (OF 5)
Basic training has begun and Archie’s surprised with a familiar face—Reggie Mantle! Meanwhile, the teens back in Riverdale that haven’t enlisted are dealing with different woes on the Homefront—from anxiety worrying about their friends and families, to feelings of inadequacy and racial tensions in a changing world.
