Archie Giant Series Magazine

    (Archie, 1954-1992)
™ and ©1979 Archie Comic Publications, Inc.

Perhaps the most remarkable thing about the Archie Giant Series Magazine is its weird penchant for discontiguous issue numbering and alternate names. Basically, it’s an umbrella title for various Archie family stories, virtually indistinguishable from the numerous other Archie magazines. Each issue, however, nominally features a different Archie character, calling itself “World of Jughead,” “World of Archie” etc. on the cover, in rotating fashion. Adding to this complication are the strange gaps in issue numbering: the issue immediately following #35 was #136(!) Later, an even bigger chasm opened in the issue numbering sequence when issue #251 was followed by #452. Whether these gaps were meant to make the series seem more long-lived, or whether they were merely the case of typographical errors gone uncorrected is anyone’s guess.
