Jughead Bullies Reggie in Archie's Latest FOC Pre-Order Comic

Jughead Bullies Reggie in Archie’s Latest FOC Pre-Order Comic

Posted by January 14, 2019 Comment

Today is the last day to pre-order two upcoming Archie Comics, Archie #702, in which Nick Spencer promises to really reveal secrets that will change the Archie universe forever or something, and Archie 1941 #5. But, what we look forward to more than Archie’s actual comics are the mini comic strips they put out alongside their final order cutoff previews, which is really an exercise in the mastery of the comic form. After all, how many times can you make a short comic strip about to tell people to pre-order comics? Somehow, Archie manages to keep them from ever getting old.

Take this one for Archie #702, in which Jughead bullies Reggie for being too stupid to pre-order right…

Or this one for Archie 1941 #5

If Archie were to collect these in a hardcover, we’d buy it in a second. Then again, we’d probably buy a book of nothing but formulaic press release quote from BOOM! Studios editors. We’re weird like that.

Check out the previews for these two issues below, and for chrissakes, pre-order them. You owe it to Archie for making these comics every week.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
