So beautiful and so crazy.
Here’s an exclusive first look at the cover for the upcoming Archie Comics Super Special issue 4 which hits stores in September. As you can see, it features a fun illustration by Dan Parent in which Archie, Betty and Veronica sing The Archies’ signature tune, “Sugar Sugar.” Great fun. Here’s a rundown of what you can expect to see inside:

As regular readers of this site are well aware, I’m a bit of a Archie fanatic. But my obvious enthusiasm aside, the simple fact is that Archie Comics is the most exciting publisher around these days due to their masterful ability to please old fans and bring in new audiences through groundbreaking characters (Kevin Keller) and exciting concepts (the ongoing Life with Archie magazine, the upcoming horror/comedy hybrid Afterlife with Archie). If you haven’t checked out what’s been happening in Riverdale of late, rectify that immediately. You’re missing out on some of the best work being done in the comics industry today.
