While it may seem that we've cooled a little over Archie Comics, there's still a little excitement. The newest Sabrina the Teenage Witch looks fun, updated for modern audiences, and gorgeously put together. Just look at that double page spread! Here's a few preview pages of the third issue, on sale just after Father's Day.
I really like when comics delve into areas not usually covered by mainstream comics. Do you remember the last time that Marvel or DC delved into the world of roller derby?

The new Archie series has been very interesting to follow since its debut last year, and this is no exception.

The largest shake-up has to be the rocky relationship status of Archie and Betty and how Archie and Veronica have become firmly established as a couple.
In a press release yesterday, Archie Comics announced that Veronica Fish is the new regular artist on the flagship book for the new Riverdale line. Following on a world developed by award winning artist Fiona Staples. Her work has provided a seamless transition after Staples has left, and while Annie Wu was an excellent fill-in artists, Veronica Fish's art works just as smoothly with Mark Waid's story.
Archie Comics has sent us previews of Archie #6, the latest issue in one of our favorite new series of 2015. With what looks like the new regular artist Veronica Fish, the sample pages show the first signs that the budding relationship between Archie and Veronica has a threat in the form of Riverdale's former richest teenager, Reggie Mantle. Mark Waid's story further develops the supporting cast of Riverdale High, updating them, yet keeping them familiar. Check out the preview below, and then reserve your copy for next month!
