The Betty and Veronica Jumbo Comics Digest is nearing the completion of its 28th year.  Since the start of its run in 1987, the Archie Comics series has featured stories centered around Riverdale’s eponymous leading ladies.  In the latest issue, which comes out this Wednesday, cartoonist Dan Parent brings some holiday cheer to the Archie universe, breaking out all the mistletoe for several tales centered around Yule Log Romance!


“The Many Loves of Archie Andrews” part 2! Eight girls have entered Archie in the “Best Boyfriend of the Year” contest—but wait until you see who Archie has nominated! Let’s just say, she’s a seasonal love interest. And she’s not the only Christmas gal to spice things up! But just how long will Betty & Veronica stay merry before they start getting mad? Archie’s usual love triangle gets a festive twist in this fun, brand new ongoing lead story to this JUMBO comics digest!
