Fu Chang and the Boy Buddies return to action in ‘Archie Jumbo Comics Digest’ #342

Check out two new stories coming to next week’s digest from Archie Comics.

Courtesy of Archie Comics, we’re pleased to present a preview of two new stories from Archie Jumbo Comics Digest #342, which comes out July 26.

The first one features the return of Fu Chang, International Detective, as he helps out Archie and the gang on the set of a movie shoot at Lodge Mansion. When a few of the extras on the set acting as criminals turn out to be the real thing, Fu Chang steps into action. This one is by writer Francis Bonnet, with art and letters by Rex Lindsey and colors by Glenn Whitmore.

In the second one, the Boy Buddies are back to help out Little Archie and his pals against Mad Dr. Doom, who uses an app on people’s phones to hypnotize them. Dan Parent wrote and drew this completely fictional tale, with inks by Bob Smith, colors by Glenn Whitmore and letters by Jack Morelli.

Check out both previews below, along with a classic Little Archie story by Bob Bolling and Chic Stone.

TWO BRAND NEW STORIES! First, in “Movie Mishap,” famous director Steven Squealberg is directing a movie and using Lodge Mansion as the backdrop. The movie is based on the true story of an international gang of criminals. Archie, Jughead, Betty and Veronica are all excited to be extras in the movie, but when a few other background actors are a little too good playing their roles, they’re going to need a real detective on the case: enter, FU CHANG!

Then, in “Carnival Daze,” MAD DR. DOOM is up to his old tricks! This time his plan is to attack what everyone values most—their phones! The BOY BUDDIES are on the case—unless Little Archie and the gang distract them too much!
