It’s time to hit the trail again with another preview from our friends at Archie Comics. World of Archie Jumbo Comics #128 will feature two new stories that guest star some classic characters, including the return of Nevada Jones.
“Roam on the Range” features the Golden Age cattle detective, who now works for Mr. Lodge on his ranch. In this story, Mr. Lodge tricks Archie into taking a job helping Nevada Jones with a cattle drive, which just seems like a horrible idea ll the way around. It’s by Ian Flynn, the Kennedy Brothers, Jim Amash, Glenn Whitmore and Jack Morelli.
The second story stars Pow-Girl, a character created by Jerry Siegel and Paul Reinman at the tail-end of the Silver Age in Mighty Comics #43. While her initial career was fairly short, Tom DeFalco, Dan Parent and Bob Smith revive her in a story where she tries to impress the Mighty Crusaders by teaming up with Archie’s superhero alter-ego, Pureheart the Powerful. Archie finds out the hard way that she packs a mean punch.
Check out the previews for both stories below, as well as a full reprint story with more fisticuffs by Frank Doyle and Harry Lucey.Continue reading “Pow-Girl makes her triumphant return in ‘World of Archie Jumbo Comics’ #128”
