World Of Archie Jumbo Comics Digest #71 Review: Trapped In The Past

I’ve written a bit about the Archie Digests in the past. Some I’ve been pretty fond of, while others fell squarely into “okay” territory.

Reggie Can’t Catch a Break: Archie’s Funhouse Comics Annual #24

Betty calls Reggie out within the […]
