This is the comics event of the summer that has been making international headlines for months, and now Jim Hanley's Universe in Manhattan will be your one-stop shop for all things Archie!
On Wednesday, August 19 Archie Comics will release the hotly anticipated 600th issue of Archie! After 68 years, Archie Andrews is proposing to off-again/on-again paramour Veronica Lodge!
To celebrate, our JHU Manhattan store now has hundreds of Archie back issues in stock, including Archie, Archie & Friends, Betty, Veronica, Betty & Veronica, Jughead, and more from the past five years, all at their original cover price! That's not all as we also have hundreds of new and recent Archie digests and trade paperbacks in stock as well!
So come in to Jim Hanley's Universe, pick up an Archie comic, and visit us August 19th for the 600th issue of Archie!
P.S. We had been planning to do a ceremony and signing celebrating Archie and Veronica's impending nuptials, but Ms. Lodge's private jet has apparently sprung a leak in the Hamptons and she doesn't want to take the train into town. C'est la vie. But, hey, we've still got a ton of great Archie comics and we still have some surprises in store, so stay tuned, Riverdale!
