Little Betty & Veronica team with the Boy Buddies in ‘Betty & Veronica Jumbo Comics Digest’ #311

Check out an exclusive preview of two new stories coming in next week’s digest from Archie Comics.

Courtesy of Archie Comics, we’re pleased to present a preview of Betty & Veronica Jumbo Comics Digest #311, which comes out Feb. 8.

Today we have previews of two new stories that will appear in the digest, starting with “Operation: Brainbust” by Tom DeFalco, Bill Galvan and Ben Galvan. It features a team-up between Little Betty and Veronica and the superhero sidekick team known as the Boy Buddies. Roy the Super-Boy and Dusty the Amazing Boy Detective are showing the two girls around the campus of the Montgomery Military Academy when they notice someone up to no good.

The second story, “Ransomware Beware,” is by Francis Bonnet and Rex Lindsey. In this one, Lodge Industries has to deal with a ransomware attack, and the girls bring in Detective Fu Chang to help Mr. Lodge with his dilemma.

Below you’ll find previews of both stories, plus a complete classic Betty & Veronica story featuring a snowstorm (which hits home today considering I’m currently surrounded by a frozen wasteland in Texas). Enjoy!

Marvel returns to the ‘Planet of the Apes’ in April

David F. Walker and Dave Wachter bring the franchise back to Marvel with a new ongoing series.

Marvel has revealed more details on their Planet of the Apes relaunch, which will hit stores in April. The publisher revealed last year that they had once again obtained the license to make POTA comics for the first time since the 1970s.

The ongoing series by David F. Walker and Dave Wachter will be set during the war between humans and apes, after the ALZ-113 virus infects humanity and the world begins to crumble.

“Not only is Planet of the Apes my favorite film franchise, it was my favorite series of comics from Marvel when I was a kid,” Walker said. “Both the films and the comics ignited my imagination and helped me fall in love with the art of storytelling.
