ARCHIE COMICS FOR MARCH

THE ADVENTURES OF LITTLE ARCHIE VOLUME TWO

Written and art by Bob Bolling and Dexter Taylor.

Another entry in the Archie Classics reprint series, now with a new 6 x 9 trim size. Over the years, Archie has received countless requests to reprint the classic Little Archie stories. In 2004, Archie honored that request with a special edition focusing on some of the greatest Little Archie adventures ever written and drawn by Archie Comic's equivalent of Carl Barks, Bob Bolling! Now, another heaping helping of thrilling tales from the mind of Bolling, along with hysterical slapstick tales by Dexter Taylor. Included is a new tale from Bolling called "Dragon of Doom": Mad Doctor Doom and Chester are back to bad Ćol tricks, this time using a giant dragon fly to steal armored cars! It's up to Little Archie, Chic and Kimberly to stop the dastardly duo in this 22-page epic!
