Courtesy of our friends at Archie Comics, we’re pleased to present one more preview before the year ends — for Betty & Veronica Jumbo Comics Digest #310, which comes out Jan. 4.
Today we have previews of two new stories that will be in next week’s (next month’s? next year’s) digest, featuring the return of two Mighty Crusaders characters we’ve seen recently — Fly Girl and Inferno. In the first story by Ian Flynn and Ryan Jampole, Fly Girl, aka Kelly Brand, hangs out with Betty and helps her come up with a new superhero name for herself — something besides “SuperTeen.” The second story features Inferno, Veronica and evil clowns. It’s by Flynn and Bill Galvan.
Check out the preview below, as well as a classic winter story featuring Archie, Betty and Veronica.
BETTY AND VERONICA JUMBO COMICS DIGEST #310
THREE BRAND NEW STORIES! First, in “CHILL OUT!” a big winter storm knocks the power out in Riverdale. The Coopers end up staying at Lodge mansion, the only house in town that runs on its own generator. But as the Lodges keep hearing about all the displaced families, they open up their mansion to all of Riverdale. Will Hotel Lodge be a new business venture for Veronica’s enterprising father? Or will he be left out in the cold?
Then, in “What’s in a Name?” Kelly Brand, a.k.a. the superhero FLY GIRL, is on an important mission: she’s helping Betty come up with a better superhero name than “Superteen”! Their work is cut short, however, when an intruder comes to disrupt the peace in Riverdale. It’s up to the two um, super teens, to restore order!
Finally, in “Clowning Around,” the circus performer-superhero Frank Verrano, better known as INFERNO, has taken Veronica Lodge under his wing. Can he stop the crimes plaguing Riverdale AND dissuade Veronica from running away to join the circus?
