Favorite Archie Christmas Stories!

The folks at Comic Book Resources asked me and other Archie writers to name the favorite Christmas stories we’ve done! I could only narrow it down to two.

“‘Zat You, Santa Claus?” From Archie’s Pal Jughead Comics #89 (February, 1997) is memorable for me because it’s from my first issue as the regular Jughead writer, and the first issue of my long collaboration with artist Rex Lindsey. In it, the characters each envision what they imagine Santa Claus is really like. The issue is also notable for the introduction of my ongoing antagonist for Jughead, Trula Twyst.

Jughead Guide To Life – Part 1!

On my recent in-store event at Wonder Comics & More in Trenton, Ohio, shop owner Jeff Hensley gifted me with a recent Jughead digest that I hadn’t yet seen in print. It was part of the ‘Archie Milestones’ series, #18, March 2023, and this issue’s theme was “Jughead Guide to Life.”

It’s a good collection from various creators. Eight of my stories (one new; the rest, reprints from the past decades) are among them, all drawn by my regular Jughead collaborator, Rex Lindsey. A few of those stories have abiding personal meaning for me. so I thought I’d write some words about them.

I was recently reminded that October 14 was the birthday of the late Samm Schwartz, so let me jump ahead to the story in this digest that I wrote as a tribute to Samm.

Tailipoe 101 part 3!

*****
My Tailipoe series grew out of the Appalachian folktale of the same name, which I read in a book. As mentioned in Part 2.

Here’s an interpretation of the traditional story by digital animator Matt Rogers that I quite like:

https://youtu.be/ygKOF1mEzRs?si=U-TqSWoiprvjwZgw

Folk tales are originally told around campfires and next to bedsides. They are made up on the fly and embellished in the retelling. In this way the tales are spread from person to person, family to family, generation to generation. And eventually gathered into a book by professors of folklore.

Unboxing Disney 1 Saturday Morning!

In the late ‘90’s, Disney Adventures Magazine presented a monthly array of articles of interest for kids. Each issue also contained a large comics section filled with stories based on then-current Disney shows and movies.

I contributed comic scripts inspired by the animated series, ‘Disney’s Doug’ (The TV show was a continuation of one of the original Nicktoons, Doug, by creator Jim Jinkins for the Nickelodeon cable channel).

All of the Disney Adventures comics have been out of print since their original publication, until now. Fantagraphics has compiled a selection of that work in a hardback anthology called Disney 1 Saturday Morning Adventures.

Editor David Gerstein was kind enough to send me a copy of the new book, and I turned on the camera for an unboxing vid.

Apologies for the sound, my lapel mike didn’t perform up to par.
