Comic Book Resources spoke with J Torres about JINX: LITTLE MISS STEPS
, the second volume in the Jinx series on sale tomorrow. In this follow-up to the first Jinx graphic novel, we see a teenage Jinx Holliday deal with choosing a date for the spring dance as well as coming to terms with some shocking revelations on the home front. In addition to these more mature themes, the classic character also deals with trying out for the boys’ baseball team and having a relationship with her single father, Hap. J Torres states that “It's still fairly ‘wholesome’ but maybe more like a teen sitcom than an Archie comic.”
The article also features exclusive preview pages from the graphic novel as well as teaser images.

Archie Comics title honored with the Outstanding Comic Book award
The Archie Comics ongoing series Kevin Keller was announced as this year’s winner for Outstanding Comic Book at the final round of the GLAAD Media Awards, presented Saturday evening in San Francisco. Writer/artist Dan Parent, who introduced the world to the character in 2010, was in attendance to collect the statuette in person.
After immediately capturing the public’s attention with a sold out debut, Kevin was awarded his own mini-series with the launch of an ongoing series quickly following. Since being introduced, Kevin has become one of Archie Comic’s most highly publicized characters, including a history-making wedding in the pages of the Eisner Award nominated Life with Archie.
“We could not be more excited for Kevin to be endorsed by GLAAD,” said Archie Comics Publisher/Co-CEO Jon Goldwater. “Kevin is so important to the growth and future of Archie Comics and it’s validating to see him embraced this way.”
