Is Afterlife starting over from the beginning again? I thought that after the side-trip to see what Sabrina was up to, they would be starting the second arc. This description sounds like stuff we've already seen released.

As far as the rest of the lineup goes, the Betty and Veronica standard cover is nice, and I'll be getting that with my subscription, but I'm definitely snagging the variant. That is too cute.

Afterlife with Archie the Comic is not starting up again as this is  Afterlife with Archie the Magazine. The magazine version is the reprint version of Afterlife with Archie and is being released from the beginning in a bigger magazine format like Life with Archie. The Afterlife with Archie Magazine and Afterlife with Archie Comic are different in format and are not the same thing.

The regular Afterlife with Archie comic will continue with issue 7 due September 24 and issue 8 in December 10th. Afterlife with Archie Magazine will be released in newsstands and stores to attract new readers where the comic was just comic shops and the first magazine with the reprinted issue 1 releasing in October 2014 and will have bonus content included. So the magazine is going to be reprints of issues already released in a larger magazine size while the comic will continue as it has been.

Thank you, ACC, that clears things up. I'm sure there was something about the magazine version, but I must have missed it. I'll just be patient for the comic to come out.

Sonic Boom 3 sounds awesome. I like that Amy is getting some spotlight and I'm curious to meet the new girl Sticks. (the Amy and Cream friendship from Sonic X and most video games is still my favorite Sonic duo.)

I also like the Jughead and Archie Digest. I've always liked Ethel, though I kind of prefer when she focuses on other hobbies besides chasing Jughead. Still it's rare for her to have a lead story so I'll take what I can get!

The Archie digest with Vegas on the cover is adorable. I love all the pets, lol. The new snowman story sounds like it could be cute.

So hopefully those will be my December comics. They all sound great, so it's hard to narrow the choices down.
