Check out exclusive previews for two new stories from Archie’s upcoming digest, which arrives in stores on March 22.
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.

Check out an exclusive preview of two new stories coming in next week’s digest from Archie Comics.
Courtesy of our friends at Archie Comics, we’re happy to present a preview of two new stories from Betty & Veronica Jumbo Comics Digest #312, which comes out March 15.
The first story, “Real Horse Power,” features a classic Archie deep cut, Nevada Jones. The “Cattle Detective” appeared in back-ups stories in Pep Comics and Zip Comics back in the day, and his modern equivalent appears in a story set at the Lodge Ranch (You might be asking, “Veronica’s dad owns a ranch?” Of course he does). This one is by Ian Flynn, the Kennedy Brothers, Bob Smith, Glenn Whitmore and Jack Morelli.
The second story features the return of Ghost Fox, who we saw last week trying to save his dad from Mr. Smile. This time around, he’s being investigated, but not by a villain — Kevin Keller wants to know who the new kid is from Red Circle High, and he enlists Veronica to help him figure it out. Flynn also wrote this one, with Steven Butler and Jim Amash providing the artwork, and Whitmore and Morelli on colors and letters, respectively.
Below you’ll find previews of both stories, plus, in keeping with the horse theme, a classic story featuring Betty and Veronica at the Riverdale Riding Academy.
