Official Press Release
Archie Comics, the leading mass-market comic book publisher in the world and home to such notable pop culture creations as Archie, Jughead, Betty & Veronica, Josie & The Pussycats, and Sabrina the Teenage Witch, announced today that it will be expanding on its ever-popular line of Double Digests with the new Double Double Digests, beginning in 2013.
Archie’s series of Digests have been a staple of mass-market literature for decades and continue to line newsstands and beyond, boasting great value for the amount of content. With the introduction of the Double Double Digest, which will be twice the size of the current Double Digests, customers can look forward to even more classic Archie stories packed into one title.
“Archie remains the leader in bringing value to the marketplace,” said Archie Comics Co-CEO Jon Goldwater. “We hope our fans enjoy the Double Double Digests which beat any comic book deal on the market today.”
The new digests will feature 320 full-color pages as well as UV- coated cover, all retailing for the low price of $5.99 US. Each Double Digest will get the Double Double treatment once per year and will rotate from one digest to the next to offer a total of 1500 extra digest pages annually.
Archie’s line of Double Digests include Archie, Betty & Veronica, Jughead, B&V Friends, Archie & Friends, and World of Archie, with the Double Doubles beginning in March with the Archie Double Double Digest. This allows fans of every title an opportunity to read even more stories from their favorite Riverdale pals and gals for the best price.
