Grease Bats: New Girlfriend!

Welcome to Saturday Morning Cartoons, a segment where four artists take turns delighting you with their whimsy, facts and punchlines on Saturday mornings! Grease Bats, today’s comic, is created by Archie!

Guess what! Archie’s five-year collection of Grease Bats is now a book you can hold IN THE PHYSICAL WORLD, with your HANDS, that you can read OFFLINE, that you can TUCK UNDER YOUR BED AT NIGHT! Snag a copy for you + a pal!

Enjoy this week’s SUPER SPECIAL SNEAK PEEK into the comic that graces the end of the collection! A new 20-page story unpublished anywhere else! To read the whole thing, ya gotta snag the book (or check it out from your local library)!
