ARCHIE COMICS FIRST LOOKS

FIRST LOOK: ARCHIE ALL-STARS VOLUME 3: THE CARTOON LIFE OF CHUCK CLAYTON

Archie All-Stars Volume 3: The Cartoon Life of Chuck Clayton will arrive in stores on Feb. 17 from Archie Comics. The issue is written by Alex Simmons, with art by Fernando Ruiz.

Here's how Archie describes the issue:

"Originally appearing in the pages of Archie & Friends #126 through #129, 'The Cartoon Life of Chuck Clayton' focuses on Chuck's efforts to share his artistic talents with neighborhood kids, and the special relationships he develops as he teaches cartooning. It all starts when Chuck is asked to teach an after-school program in cartooning to elementary school kids… and it isn't long before he learns the kids can be more hyperactive than his doodles! But Chuck is determined to connect with the kids and help them create the next comic book classics. Along the way, he gets some help teaching from an unlikely source, and reaches out to a troubled child known for spreading graffiti. Can Chuck's world of collecting, drawing, and teaching kids how to make their own comics take on new meaning? The answer's just a splash panel away! This poignant tale comes courtesy of someone who knows their way around both creating and teaching comics, namely acclaimed writer, children's art advocate, and organizer of the world's only “Kids' Comic” convention, Alex Simmons."

Archie All-Stars Volume 3: The Cartoon Life of Chuck Clayton will be 96 pages and will cost $11.95.

This time, they're playing a gig at the fabled Beverly Hills Hotel's Crystal Ballroom, where many a movie star, president and other dignitaries have been entertained throughout the years! Of course, they plan to make time for some of the city's other famous landmarks, too, including the Fountain Coffee room – home of grilled cheese and tomato sandwiches and the famous 'Orange Freeze' drink, and the many shops on Rodeo Drive, including Guzzi and Dolsay & Cabana! 'Do the Right Thing': Archie faces his biggest dilemma: do what's right (keep his date with Betty) or rock 'n' roll all night (at a concert with Veronica)! Plus: Other new and classic tales! 'Loving the Library': Girls can read boys like open books -- especially when those boys (like Archie) volunteer at the library just to meet girls! Bonus: Puzzles, games and pin-ups!"

'Technologically Challenged': A zapped battery in Veronica's cell phone cuts off the lines of communication with Betty at a crucial moment: just when a new girl threatens to move in on their Archie!"
