Check out an exclusive preview of a new story coming in next week’s digest from Archie Comics.
Archie Comics has shared a preview with us of Betty and Veronica Jumbo Comics #319, which will feature a new holiday story starring Betty, Veronica and the Shield.
In “Holiday Heist,” Victoria Adams, aka the Shield, needs help with her holiday shopping — something Veronica knows a thing or two about. Veronica takes our hero to an auction house, where the prices are a bit out of Victoria’s range, but I bet the two shady guys in trench coats will come into play. This story’s by Ian Flynn, Bill Galvan, Jim Amash, Glenn Whitmore and Jack Morelli.
Check out the preview below, along with a complete Josie and the Pussycats story by FRank Doyle and Dan DeCarlo.

Courtesy of Archie Comics, we’re pleased to present a preview of two new stories from Betty & Veronica Jumbo Comics Digest #317, which comes out Sept. 6.
In the first story, Hiram Lodge invites Nevada Jones to check out his new Western-themed attraction — which happens to be populated with out-of-this-Westworld robot versions of the cowboy. Ian Flynn, Pat Kennedy, Bob Smith, Glenn Whitmore and Jack Morelli bring this one to life.
Then in the second story, Jack Chang is back to help Betty and Veronica solve the mystery of a vanishing case of money at Riverdale’s annual charity cricket match. Tom DeFalco, Steven Butler, Lily Butler, Whitmore and Morelli are the creative team for this “Whodunit?”

The ‘Heroine Chic’ artist discusses her work on ‘Josie and the Pussycats,’ the latest issue of ‘Archie,’ how she works and more.
Audrey Mok made a big impression when Josie and the Pussycats #1 came out in late 2016. Some of us knew her for her work on the comic Heroine Chic, but her work on Josie managed to straddle the original work of Dan DeCarlo and put her own spin on the characters and their designs. She found a way to visually balance the madcap humor with honest emotion, and find interesting ways to draw both battle scenes and concert scenes with equal ease.
Since Josie wrapped, Mok has been drawing Archie beginning with issue #23. Issue #31 of the series is out this week, and I asked Mok a few questions about her career and how she works.
