Tom DeFalco and Steven Butler pay tribute to a classic Christmas poem in one of two new stories appearing in next week’s digest from Archie Comics.
Archie Comics has shared a preview with us of one of the new stories appearing in World of Archie Jumbo Comics Digest #135, which will arrives in stores Nov. 22.
Our preview this week is a fun one, as writer Tom DeFalco, artists Steven Butler and Jim Amash, colorist Glenn Whitmore and letterer Jack Morelli pay tribute to a Christmas classic. A Visit from St. Nicholas, the poem by Clement Clarke Moore, gets turned on its head as Pureheart the Powerful and Pow-Girl hear the “clatter” of super-villain activity before Christmas.
Check out the preview below, along with a complete Archie story by Frank Doyle and Samm Schwartz.

Courtesy of our friends at Archie Comics, we’re happy to present a preview of two new stories from World of Betty & Veronica Jumbo Comics Digest #24, which comes out April 5.
In the first preview, there’s some confusion over who is the real hero when She-Fox and Skulk recruit Superteen and Powerteen — that’s Betty and Veronica in their masked identities — to help them battle their foe. This one is by Ian Flynn, Holly G!, Jim Amash, Glenn Whitmore and Jack Morelli.
Then in the second new story, Pow-Girl, who returned to action a couple of weeks ago, recruits Betty and Veronica to help her against the criminal gang the Yellowjackets (luckily there’s no confusion over who the bad guys are here!) That leads to the girls asking Pow-Girl about her secret origin. This one is by Tom DeFalco, Dan Parent and Bob Smith, joined by Whitmore and Morelli on colors and letters.
Check out the previews for both stories below along with the credits and description, as well as a full classic mystery story written by Bob Bolling of Little Archie fame.

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.
