Li’ l Archies

Little Archie coverIn the odd field of comics “variant” covers is the subfield of “store variants”, where a comics retailer will pay thousands of dollars to have a unique cover version of a comic available only through them. AAUGH Blog Reader John let me know that retailer Stadium Comics is now offering this variant, featuring the Little Archie characters (who are already a reimagining of the standard Archie characters as kids) reimagined with a Schulzian gloss to them. This is available in a standard edition — only 250 printed, for $15, or a metal edition (only 50) which comes with a copy of the standard edition as well for $50.

Order here, if you wish.
