Lucy and Evan go where no Archie reviewers have gone before: space, the final frontier. That, and the Archie Comics app. Your two favourite Archie enthusiasts (?) test out how Archie looks on their phones by downloading Archie's Space Cases, an anthology of the comic's best and brightest space-related stories. Travel to the outer cosmos to 

  • subject yourself to intense cartoon propaganda about the international space station
  • uncover the Lodge family's many-tentacled reach into the space-industrial complex
  • fat-shame robots
  • wonder who went into space first: Yuri Gagarin or Archie Andrews?
  • argue whether climate change really did kill all life on Mars
  • and, as always, we provide you with Archie trivia, gags, and much more

This third episode of Radio Free Riverdale is beaming to you from our satellite light-years away. Set up your personal comlink and tune in. We're about to take our protein pills and put our helmets on!

Your intrepid Archie digesters, Lucy and Evan, continue to delve into the Archie mythos with Archie's Funhouse Double Digest #16, a collection that captures the last hot exhalation of summer. In this latest audio installment

  • we learn about the secret lives of Riverdale's canine population
  • we thrill to an epic gangland bowling battle
  • we witness the early days of computer dating
  • Li'l Archie teaches us about the glass ceiling and discrimination in the business world
  • we cringe through ill-advised tale of toreadors (you read that correctly)
  • Evan and Lucy fight over whether Reggie and Archie are friends
  • and, as always, we provide you with Archie trivia, gags, and much more

Just like a real funhouse, this issue was confusing, amusing, upsetting, unsettling, and whimsical. We hope you enjoy it!
