Archie is proud to present this top-notch new full-color original graphic novel for tween and teen girls created by award-winning writer/artist team J. Torres and Rick Burchett. The high literary quality of the book has led Archie to launch a simultaneous Smythe-sewn hardcover edition ideal for libraries and collectors.
Feisty tomboy high school freshman Jinx explores the social perils of the high school experience as old friendships change and she struggles with the new expectations attached to becoming a young woman.

The good news is the gang's all here at Rose Valley High: her best friends Greg and Roz as well as her greatest frenemies Charlie and Gigi. The bad news is the old gang isn't acting quite the same in their new environment. Charlie acts like a bully when he isn't simply acting strangely around Jinx.

However, a new school means new rules, such as no co-ed teams, which means she can't even play ball with the boys who were in little league with her. As rules and relationships become more complicated, one thing remains the same: Jinx means bad luck to anyone who gets in the way of her getting her way!

This outstanding graphic novel is a bright, full-hearted coming of age story told with great humor, charm and compassion.

The secret is "out" and Kevin Keller is here, starring in his very own deluxe oversize full-color hardcover graphic novel!
Kevin Keller is Archie's first gay character and the most popular addition to the Riverdale crowd in years. This edition includes the GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Comic Book-nomiated story, "Isn't it Bromantic," where Kevin first meets Archie, Jughead, Betty and Veronica, and also explores his love of journalism, his desire to serve in the military in the footsteps of his father, a retired colonel, plus fascinating and fun insights into Kevin's life growing up as an Army kid prior to Riverdale.

Kevin's first comic appearance in 2011 sold out immediately in the comic book market and marked the first time Archie ever went back to print on a comic book title. Kevin's stories have continued to receive a tremendous amount of positive press through mainstream and trade outlets such at the AP, ABC News, USA Today, IGN, Newsarama, The Scripps Howard News Service, Publishers Weekly and Library Journal.

The deluxe volume includes Kevin's first two appearances in Veronica 202 & 205 and the full 4-issue run of the Kevin Keller miniseries.
