WORLD OF ARCHIE JUMBO COMICS DIGEST #60
Take a trip to the Middle Ages with Archie! A snooze on the beach turns into an adventure in history. As it turns out, being a teenager wasn't that much different centuries ago! Well... minus the fact that a sports competition featured horses... and swords... and was definitely a lot more dangerous! Get ready to get Medieval with Archie and the gang in "A Knight to Remember," the entertaining lead story to this JUMBO-sized comics digest!

256-page, full color comic
AND it's not a "new" lead story, it's an "entertaining" lead story. Scripted by a writer who is no longer among us, and drawn by an artist whose last new work for ACP appeared more than 6 months ago. GCD lists at least a couple of stories by Gladir titled "A Knight To Remember"... I wonder which one this is?
Of course, that full-page ad still appearing in the digests does say "NOW featuring NEW stories in every Comics Double Digest!" ...so I guess, technically, a Jumbo or Annual digest isn't a Double Digest... !
OK... so now we're down from 240 pages of new stories 'In The Traditional Archie Style' to 235 pages per year (so far) ...
There better be special sections in there for LIFE WITH ARCHIE, ARCHIE 1, and FROM THE VAULT.
