ARCHIE & FRIENDS #129...

A couple of days ago, I finished inking ARCHIE & FRIENDS #129. This issue is the final chapter in a four part series titled "The Cartoon Life of Chuck Clayton." This storyline was great fun to ink. I always enjoy working with Fernando Ruiz. He’s very possibly the best penciler in comics today. ARCHIE & FRIENDS #129 should be on sale on March 11th.
Here’s how Archie Comic Publications describes ARCHIE & FRIENDS #129:
"The Cartoon Life of Chuck Clayton" concludes with this latest installment. Tony Messina is a troubled kid, always getting into mischief. When he gets caught spreading graffiti in his neighborhood, his mother decides it would be best if Tony learned how to use his artistic abilities in a more positive way and enrolls him in Chuck's class. But there's a reason Tony's painted the walls in his town, and when Chuck finds out why, he decides to take action. What reason could Tony possibly have to deface property? Can Chuck find a solution beneficial to everyone? It's a poignant tale you won't want to miss, brought to you by children's educator Alex Simmons.
