JugArchieComDig19Another update on Archie Comics!  I’ve written the lead story for the upcoming Jughead and Archie Comics Double Digest #19. The book is scheduled to release March 2, 2016.  Here’s the summary:

When Mr. Lodge needs some assistance fixing up Lodge Manor, Archie and Jughead offer to help make some repairs. Mr. Lodge isn’t sure he trusts them, but with the power of “how-to” videos on MyTube, Archie promises that they can fix anything—and for free! Will Archie and Jughead be regular fixer-uppers, or will Mr. Lodge end up getting exactly what he paid for? Find out in “Fixit Friends,” the hilarious lead story to this comics double digest!

Script: Francis Bonnet
Art: Fernando Ruiz
Cover: Dan Parent, Bob Smith, Rosario “Tito” Peña
On Sale Date: 3/2
160-page, full color comic
$4.99 U.S.

What’s special about this issue is that not only did I write the story, but I also wrote the cover gag, which Dan Parent, Bob Smith, and Rosario “Tito” Peña did an awesome job of recreating. I’ve also seen the interior pencils and inks and the art looks amazing.

So mark your calendars for March 2nd and be sure to pick up a copy at your local newsstand, bookstore, or comics shop!  More information can be found on the Archie Comics website.
