    BETTY & VERONICA #236

    Publisher:
    Archie Comics
    Writers: Mike Pellowski, George Gladir, Kathleen Webb
    Pencils: Jeff Shultz
    Covers: Jeff Shultz

    "PAST PROBLEM"
    It’s déjà vu all over again for Veronica when she flirts with a lifeguard only to find he’s interested in Betty! It’s shades of Nick St. Clair, the mysterious stranger who caused so much “bad boy trouble” for Veronica in last year’s epic story of the same name. And speaking of Nick, wait until you read the surprise ending of this story!

    "THE SWITCH"
    When pretty exchange students from Norway invite Betty and Veronica to their country, Veronica turns the girls down to avoid all the mountain climbing… until she learns they’ve asked Archie and Jughead to go in their place!

    "ON THE OUTS"
    When the gang congregates in the Lodge’s entertainment room to play the latest video game, Mr. Lodge enlists Betty to use her smarts… and her knowledge of her friends… to lure them all outside!

    BETTY & VERONICA DIGEST #185

    Publisher:
    Archie Comics
    Writers: Fernando Ruiz
    Pencils: Jeff Shultz
    Covers: Jeff Shultz

    A VERY SPECIAL ISSUE CELEBRATING BETTY & VERONICA’S VERY FIRST ISSUE!

    First, Archie reprinted PEP COMICS #22 and ARCHIE COMICS #1 to celebrate Archie’s 65th anniversary in ARCHIE DIGEST #236. Then, Jughead got the same treatment in JUGHEAD’S DOUBLE DIGEST #138. Now, to commemorate the anniversary of ARCHIE’S GIRLS BETTY & VERONICA #1 from 1950, Archie is pleased to present this very special issue that reprints that first issue in its entirety. And just like in the ARCHIE and JUGHEAD issues, it also includes a brand-new tale that finds the girls facing the past in a way they never expected! Yes, in “Betty & Veronica Meet Betty & Veronica,” the Betty & Veronica of 2008 find themselves face to face to face to face with the Betty & Veronica of the 1950s!

    JUGHEADS DOUBLE DIGEST #141

    Publisher:
    Archie Comics
    Writers: Melanie Morgan, Various
    Pencils: Joe Staton, Various
    Inkers: Joe Staton

    THE EPIC SAGA OF JUGHEAD’S NEW LOVE LIFE… AND NEW, REALISTIC LOOK… CONTINUES!

    "The Matchmakers", Part 3
    After “setting up” Jughead and Sandy, matchmakers Archie, Betty, Reggie and Veronica are surprised at how well their plan is working. Especially when studious, athletic Sandy starts neglecting both her studies and her girls’ softball team in favor of spending time with Jughead. Make that Forsythe, as he now prefers to be called. Exchanging his trademark “crown” hat for a typical baseball cap, it seems like Sandy is having quite the influence on the once unique soul. Unless of course it’s all a big put-on. The gang isn’t so sure when they see how well Jughead and Sandy interact as partners in the couples’ competition at the school picnic! It’s another intriguing chapter in this 4-part epic! Last year’s “Bad Boy Trouble” set the comics world on its ear as the teens were depicted in a realistic style. Comic book legends Joe Staton and Al Milgrom carry on that look, handling pencils and inks respectively, in what is sure to be one of the more intriguing Archie stories of the year!

    PLUS: Other new and classic tales!

    BONUS: Puzzles, games and pin-ups!

    ALIENS OMNIBUS VOLUME 4 TP

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse Comics
    By: Various

    Like sports, the victor is he who wants it more. Unlike sports, the loser earns extinction.

    Mankind has fought for survival over countless millennia, but nothing has threatened humanity's existence like the murderous Alien scourge. While some have tried to use the creatures' deadly abilities to serve their own selfish ends, no one can dance with the devil, and ultimately only one species must prevail. To that end, men have turned their own lethal instincts and cold intellect against the monsters, creating engineered plagues, cybernetic fighting suits, and even bogus android aliens, but survival rides not on technology, but on the primacy of the most deep-rooted, feral instincts.

    * Nearly four hundred story pages in full color, some never before collected!

    * Creators include horror novelist Chet Williamson, as well as John Arcudi, Doug Mahnke, Jon Wagner, Ronnie del Carmen, and many more!

    Part 3 of 6
    All good things must pass, and our heroes find out they're on the same side after all. But tensions remain high as the heavy hitters -- the JLA, Wildcats, Teen Titans and the Authority -- still don't care for each other at all. But they're willing to work together if that's what it takes to save the world. Because with things like Metropolis and Gotham City suddenly showing up on the east coast of the WildStorm Universe's United States of America, or Central City and Keystone City in the midwest, massive damage is occurring on an unprecedented scale. Hate each other as they might, they're forced to work together for the common good.

    Writers: Mark Andrew Smith
    Pencils: Marcelo Dichiara
    Covers: Marcelo Dichiara

    KILL ALL PARENTS is the story of an authoritarian government's secret program to 'save' mankind by eliminating villains: by insuring that every child born with a super power becomes a super hero. Based on the life's work of a brilliant but demented scientist and futurist, the method is effective but fantastically cruel, unnatural, and ultimately deeply flawed. We follow the last of the strong heroes, the remaining brave, who fight for not only their future and the lives of their families, but that of all mankind.

    "OLD MAN LOGAN", Part 1 of 8
    MARK MILLAR and STEVE MCNIVEN--who last teamed for the monumental CIVIL WAR--bring us the most important WOLVERINE story of the 21st Century. Nobody knows what happened on the night the heroes fell. All we know is that they disappeared and evil triumphed and the bad guys have been calling the shots ever since. What happened to Wolverine is the biggest mystery of all. For 50 years, no one has heard hide nor hair from him…and in his place stands an old man called Logan. A man concerned only about his family. A man pushed to the brink by the HULK GANG. A man forced to help an old friend--the blind archer, HAWKEYE--to drive three thousand miles to secure his family’s safety. Get ready for the ride of your life, Logan.

    Alexander, Hannibal, Napoleon, Patton. What if the greatest military mind of our generation was born in strife, surrounded by violence and combat since birth?

    From the minds of writers Marc Bernardin and Adam Freeman (The Highwaymen, Monster Attack Network) and innovative illustrator Afua Richardson (Half Dead), Genius is a book that will have readers talking for months to come.
