Archie falls for the magical superhero Darkling in ‘World of Betty and Veronica Jumbo Comics Digest’ #21

Check out an exclusive preview of two new stories by Ian Flynn and Steven Butler coming in next week’s digest.

Courtesy of Archie Comics, we’re pleased to present a preview of World of Betty and Veronica Jumbo Comics Digest #21, which arrives in stores Dec. 14.

Today we have previews from two of the new stories appearing in this digest. The first, “Expensive Stuffing,” features Betty helping the patriotic superhero Captain Flag and his eagle, Yank. Then“She’s Goth What It Takes!” features a new girl catching Archie’s eye — but when a monster attacks, luckily for Archie this new girl turns out to be Darkling, the 1980s mystical superhero. Both stories are by the team of Ian Flynn and Steven Butler.

Check out the previews below, as well as a classic story by Frank Doyle and Dan DeCarlo.


THREE BRAND NEW STORIES! First, in “Snow Way!“ when Betty and Veronica make snowmen in front of Veronica’s mansion, Veronica decides to outdo Betty and make a high-fashion snow-woman. Even though it’s done mostly as a joke, it catches the eye of a holiday blogger and goes viral. Suddenly Veronica’s on Fashion TV with a whole runway of fashionable snow-people! But can she keep her cool enough to maintain this level of cold-weather celebrity?

Then, in “Expensive Stuffing,” Betty’s volunteering at the local animal rehabilitation center, when she’s tasked with a very special case—the superhero Captain Flag’s beloved pet eagle is sick! Does Betty have the know-how to bring this special super-powered animal back to health?

And last, Darkling returns in “She’s Goth What It Takes!” The new girl at Riverdale High has turned Archie’s head, but Darla Lang is no ordinary student – she’s got a host of magical powers and otherworldly monsters are hot on her trail. But can Darkling handle these frights without some down-to-earth help?
