IMO, if what they were attempting to focus on in this story was what Archie's life was like as a typical high school student in 1941 -- how was it the same for teenagers 25, 50 or 75 years later? and in what ways was it different? -- it would have been a lot more relevant to what ARCHIE, as a comic book character with more than 75 years of history behind him, has really been about -- always reflecting "the high school experience" (whatever that may mean).
That could've been very interesting... but it is what the company has been running from at top speed for the last two years.

The story, Kindness Works, was ten pages. There are a number of previews of it out there if you google "Archie Comics autism, Scarlet" The story has received a good amount of coverage from various circles.
You can also check out my pencils to a few of the pages over on my website: http://fernandoruizeverybody.com/kindness-works-a-new-archie-story/

I just wanted to let everyone know that Dan Parent and I are producing a THIRD volume to our popular independent comic book series, DIE KITTY DIE and we have launched a Kickstarter campaign in order to fund it. As we've often said, we couldn't produce this series without the loyal fans who come out to support us during these campaigns. We appreciate everyone who has donated and helped us get this far.
In addition to supporting this project and securing copies of Die Kitty Die Heaven & Hell for yourself, the Kickstarter campaign is the ONLY place to get some cool fun stuff not available anywhere else. We're currently offering ALL NEW sketchbooks featuring our art. These sketchbooks are not available anywhere else!
We're also holding our exclusive art sales where Dan and I trade select one-of-a-king pieces in return for a pledge to the campaign. Currently, I'm offering the entire Veronica half of Life With Archie magazine #31. This was a key issue in which began events leading up to the famous Death Of Archie storyline. All twenty pages are included in this offer.
Dan and I are also offering the opportunity for personal one-of-kind commissions.
Please check out the campaign and all of our offerings:https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/14732987/die-kitty-die-heaven-and-hell?ref=nav_search&result=project&term=Die%20Kitty%20Die
Thanks, Everybody! Your support is greatly appreciated! Please help us spread the word!

When's the next Kickstarter? Still haven't gotten my commission from the last Kickstarter.
The Die Kitty Die Heaven & Hell Kickstarter launches in very early May 2018.
Dan and I are currently sending out reward packages for our 2017 Kickstarter campaign. Packages are shipping out every week. If you haven't received yours yet, you should very soon. Thanks for hanging in there with us.

I'm sorry you had so much trouble, Mr. Lodge. I hope it worked out.

.... and the next DKD Kickstarter, Die Kitty Die! Kitty Goes to Hell (which probably won't be available before Fall 2018)...
The next installment, Die Kitty Die Heaven & Hell
, should be available in early Summer 2018.

Sent email to Nancy for purchase.
Nice! Thanks for the support, Mr. Lodge!

All right!! Congrats, Mr. Ruiz! 😁 I hope this means you're back? 🤗
As far as being back... well.... Like I said at my site, if Nancy has any other stories she'd like me to draw, I'd certainly consider them.

That's great, Fernando! Where, exactly, can the story be purchased, and is the digital format viewable on Kindle for PC or Nook for PC?
Click on my link above for details on how to purchase the story. I believe the story will be delivered as a PDF.

For many, many years Archie stories went uncredited and there were no records kept as to who did what on these stories. This was especially the case with artists who didn't produce the volume of work of DeCarlo and Lucey. I know I've been present when the digest production crew's only option was to run certain stories past Victor Gorelick and hope that he remembered who worked on them. For the most part, he usually did!
For some reason, this problem with the credits extended to stories published as recently as the 90's. Occasionally, I was asked to confirm if I'd written or drawn a particular story that there was a question about.
In spite of this, I know mistakes were made and I've seen my name credited with work I haven't done. Most commonly, I'm credited as the writer on stories I haven't written.
