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.

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!”
