The Halloween treat that won't rot your teeth!
Tired of giving out candy to trick-or-treaters on Halloween? (Or, like BRBTV, do you just wanna keep all the candy to yourself????) This October, as in years past, Archie Comics is offering bundles of 25 "ashcan" comics to be given out as Halloween treats.
In this year's special-edition "Halloween Ashcan" comic, Betty and Nancy get part-time jobs at a local costume shop, but when a big order falls through, they may be out of a job … and out of luck! But when Chuck drops by the shop with bad news about his failed comic book submission, his forgotten portfolio — filled with superhero costume designs — may just save the day for the girls, Mr. Pansky’s Costume Shop, and Halloween! Script: George Gladir; pencils: Stan Goldberg; inking: Al Milgrom; lettering: Jack Morelli; color: Barry Grossman.
Sold in bundles of 25 and shipped weeks before Halloween, this 16-page mini-comic is certainly low-calorie and sugar-free, and will introduce the young'uns to the Archie gang and their timeless teen exploits! If you're interested in getting your hands on a bundle of the comics, contact your local comic shop (and if you don't know where that is, find one at http://www.comicshoplocator.com/ or call (888) COMIC BOOK / (888) 266-4226).
