Holiday Cheer Runs Through Riverdale With ‘Archie Christmas Spectacular’ On The Wednesday Run

It’s December 13!

There’s snow on the ground here in Toronto…and also in the fictional town of Riverdale!

We must be smack dab in the heart of the holiday season!

Whether it’s Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or any other mid-to-late December celebration, you’ve hopefully got the spirit of the season in you by now! I mean, it’s been nothing but ornaments, tinsel, candles, multiple Santa, Hallmark Holiday movies and family get-togethers the past few weeks (and weeks to come).

And even the comic book industry has gotten in on the holiday cheer, publishing some seasonal specials this month. This very column focused on one of them a week ago, which you can read here.

Today sees the release of another one of them, as always, perfectly timed and full of fun! Check out the Archie Christmas Spectacular!

 

Archie Christmas Spectacular

Written By: Paul Kupperberg, Tom DeFalco, Dan Parent

Illustrated By: Various

Published By: Archie Comics

Perhaps you’re already done your holiday gift shopping. Perhaps you’re just getting started!

Either way, there’s definitely room for the Archie Christmas Spectacular – a twenty-four page, full colour comic book, suitable for Archie and Riverdale fans of all ages! It makes for a great – extra – gift… or a perfect stocking stuffer at only $2.99!

Here, you’ll find a number of quick, short stories, featuring the Riverdale High gang: Archie, Betty, Veronica, Jughead and the others.

Written and illustrated by cheerful holiday merry-makers and Archie Comics stalwarts, Paul Kupperberg, Tom DeFalco, Dan Parent, Pat and Tim Kennedy, Jim Amash, Glenn Whitmore and Jack Morelli, inside the pages of the Archie Christmas Spectacular, you’ll find stories like “Santa’s Little Helpers”. Featuring both Archie and Jughead, the story showcases the hilarious hijinks of the two, mostly inept students, decorating the Riverdale High gymnasium for the big Christmas Dance! Of course, these Christmas elves have got no help. Or hope!

And so goes the rest of the book, fun stories of everyone’s favourite characters, all revolving around the spirit of the season!

Make the run to your local comic book shop and pick up the Archie Christmas Spectacular for yourself, for a friend, for a loved one…or that little boy or girl’s stocking!

It’ll be a great comic book to wake up to and read on a Christmas morning!
