Archie to publish double double digests
No, it’s not your eyesight: After getting rid of its mere “Digests” last year, in favor of an entire line of Double Digests, Archie Comics will skip right over Triple Digests and start publishing Double Double digests in 2013. At 320 pages for $5.99, these are an even better deal than the Double Digests, which retail for $3.99. Every Double Digest will be doubled once a year, with the March Archie Double Digest being the first to be expanded.
Most, if not all, of the material in the digests is “classic,” i.e., has already run somewhere else, but with a huge back catalog of 70 years’ worth of comics, Archie has plenty of stories to fill those pages. I guess they’re not worried about running out anytime soon.
