First Look: ARCHIE #640

Chuck Dixon is on board as he brings Veronica's favorite band to Riverdale. Find out why it's going to mean trouble for Archie.

I had no idea Chuck Dixon is writing ARCHIE. In the latest issue, we see a mix of the familiar elements seen in Archie comics along with some modern touches that are bringing the stories into the 21st Century. Archie Comics has given us a first look at the latest issue that is going to have Archie scrambling to avoid getting the wraith of Veronica.

ARCHIE #640

The good news is Veronica’s favorite music group Tickled Blue is coming to Riverdale and playing a show for her birthday! The bad news is, Tickled Blue is coming to Riverdale and Archie gave Veronica a jacket with fake signatures from the band! Now it’s a race against the clock for Archie to get a replacement jacket with authentic autographs before she wears it to the show and the jacket is exposed as a fraud! Can Archie track down the musicians before the candles are blown out? See for yourself in “Full Muddle Jacket!”

That story, plus Mr. Lodge offends a famous artist in “A Hanging Offense” and Moose has trouble defending his teammates from getting tackled when he’s too busy defending Midge against Reggie in “Date n’ Tackle!”
