Fu Chang returns in ‘Archie Jumbo Comics Digest’ #337

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

Today, courtesy of Archie Comics, we’re pleased to present a preview of Archie Jumbo Comics Digest #337, which comes out Feb. 2.

The digest will contain two new stories, the first by Francis Bonnet, Rex Lindsey and Glenn Whitmore. It features the return of Fu Chang, the Golden Age detective from the 1940s who solved crime in San Francisco. He’s also the inspiration for Jake Chang, the new Archie character introduced earlier this year who will star in his own show on The CW.

The second story features Little Archie and the Boy Buddies, aka Roy and Dusty, AKA the sidekicks of the Wizard and the Shield. They’re investigating Grimloch Island, which is rumored to be haunted, but really a friend of Little Archie lives there and could do without the company. I like how people refer to Little Archie as “Little Archie” instead of just “Archie,” like the “Little” isn’t implied. This one is by Tom DeFalco, Bill Galvan and Ben Galvan, with Whitmore once again on colors and Jack Morelli on letters.

Below you’ll find previews of both stories, plus a complete classic Little Archie story by Dexter Taylor featuring dinosaurs. Enjoy!
