On Thursday, we come to the edge. The day where turkeys transition into Salvation Army bells and Santa caps.  However, if you’re in a particularly festive mood and just can’t wait to feel the tune to “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” coursing through your bones, then check out Archie’s Funhouse Jumbo Comics Digest #17, out this Wednesday.


Betty has surprised everyone with a new tradition for the Christmas season: a low-budget Secret Santa! Ok, that’s not that surprising, but here’s the twist… all of the gifts have to be hand-made! There’s nothing more heartfelt than a gift made by hand—unless, of course, if you’re all-thumbs! How will some of our not-so-crafty pals ‘n’ gals fare in this new holiday tradition? Find out in “Not-So-Secret Santas,” the all-new fun and festive lead story to this JUMBO-sized comics digest!
