DeCarlo Rules: I'm sure you must have noticed that the cover price of digests went up again, so it's the least they can do...

DeCarlo Rules: Not sure if I counted three, or four months' worth of solicitations of digest where they all promise two new stories. Hopefully that becomes a regular thing now, unless they want to add a third story. But they didn't follow through with Archie Digest #329.

Tuxedo Mark: The title "Poster Boy" as used in this story is a different meaning than the usual. It's referring to Archie trying to make (and post) a viral video. So he's a "poster boy".

Hanna Barbera Montana: Yes, that digest

FCBD 2022 The Best ARCHIE Comic Ever! #0

Nah... not so much!  ???

This consists of a 4-page preview (or prequel?) to a Pureheart the Powerful story scheduled to appear in the upcoming one-shot The Best ARCHIE Comic Ever! #1 (see cover below), plus a short story reprinted from a recently published one-shot, ARCHIE Love and Heartbreak Special #1, plus another story which may be either a reprint of a recent one-shot or a preview of an upcoming one-shot (I'm not sure).

None of the stories in this FCBD issue are written & drawn in the "classic Archie" style.

It is weird that Archie is now in the position of publishing a FCBD issue (itself a one-shot) that is a part-reprint of an already-published one-shot, and part-preview of another upcoming one-shot of the same title. All things considered, I think I'd have preferred a FCBD one-shot that was entirely assembled from classic-style Archie reprints.


In case you're wondering, the above-pictured The Best ARCHIE Comic Ever! #1 consists of the aforementioned Pureheart story, a B&V Spy Girlz story, and a Jughead the Barbarian story (none of them in the classic style).

With very few one-shots coming out these days as it is, why is Archie Comics doing random AU stories? And why are they hyping it? I'd rather have canonical stories set in Riverdale.
