Larry is on vacation this week, but was kind enough to make his pick for this week, last week, I am running that portion again. You can visit Larry (not on vacation) at

Going on vacation this week, & internet access is “sketchy”, so Here’s next weeks pick:
Like the larger than life George Herman Ruth Jr, I’m calling my shot:
Way back, Waaaay back. Waaaaaaay back: Home run Baby!”
Five covers, all order what you want.
RAMON PEREZ cover ( my favorite )
The comic market will ultimately decide which is most desirable.
(W) Paul Kupperberg (A) Pat Kennedy & Various (CA) Adam Hughes
History is in the making in this epic finale to the acclaimed series LIFE WITH ARCHIE, as America’s most beloved character makes the ultimate sacrifice to save a friend. The unthinkable happens: Archie Andrews dies! Fans will experience an epic tale of Archie’s future sure to make headlines, generate discussion and stand as one of the most-talked about Archie stories of all time. Do not miss this game-changing tale of love, friendship and true heroism.
How on planet Earth is this not going to get mainstream media coverage?!
It’s NOT possible.
If its a slow news day its going to be everywhere.
Death of the Icon of the checkout aisle that most of the mainstream public recognize.
This book is going to be BIG.
Biggest book of Summer BIG.
The direct market has more eyes on Archie than ever before result of the genius Afterlife series. Add that to the mainstream public flooding into the 1.900 remaining direct market shops to get a copy of the “collectors item” they just saw on the news.
Archie Publications knows this will be big.
They will anticipate demand. They’ll overprint. They’ll fall short.
Supply will not meet demand.
People will be scrambling.
If you speculate on modern comic books.
You. Want. This.

  1. Anyone hear about the Fiona Staples cover having a printing error. One LCS had them all except that cover. I’m hoping my order isn’t delayed. I did manage to snag one of each from them though, they had a stack of about 12-15 copies total only.
