by Brendan M. Allen
Archie Comics has released an early preview of the Everything’s Archie one-shot, timed to its inclusion on comic book retailers’ final order list. Today, Monday, May 17, 2021 is the final day to place an order on this title to guarantee your copy.
In Everything’s Archie #1, Archie tackles the modern app-based gig economy in a series of sharply satirical short stories in the traditional Archie style. The one-shot special is written by Fred Van Lente with art by Dan Parent, Bob Smith, and Glenn Whitmore, with lettering by Jack Morelli.
‘Finally, Archie declares his true love . . . and it’s a very expensive guitar! So, Archie picks up a few extra jobs to make some cash, what could go wrong?! Spies, TV execs, tech warfare, nothing in Riverdale will be the same! No place is safe when Everything’s Archie!’
As a bonus, also included is a reprint of the 1997 story, Betty in High School 2021 A.D., which went viral on social media in March for its prediction of schooling at home via video in 2021.
Everything’s Archie #1 goes on sale June 9, 2021, but hits FOC today, so if you need this book in your life, call, text, PM, DM, or holler at your local shop to make sure they include your copy in their order.
