TWO BRAND NEW STORIES: “SnoBoard Games” Archie, Betty, Veronica, Jughead, and Reggie are on a snowboarding trip in the mountains. While watching the Winter Olympics on TV in the lounge, Reggie brags that his snowboarding skills rival the professionals. Archie is skeptical, but when Reggie impresses the girls with flips and other tricks on the slope, Archie becomes jealous. Does Archie have what it takes to outdo Reggie on the “Monster Slope,” the scariest, most dangerous slope on the mountain? Or will it be a total wipeout?
Then, in “Sounds Like Music,” The Archies are playing a big concert in the park, and even before they get on stage, everything that could go wrong does—including Archie not being able to play his guitar during the set! Fortunately, concert volunteer Grace steps in to help. She’s not a musician herself, just has a love of music and wants to hear as much as she can before she loses her hearing. Grace has Neurofibromatosis type 2 (NF2), a genetic disorder that can cause tumors to grow on nerves throughout the body. The Archies decide to give her the performance of a lifetime, in this very special story brought to you by Archie Comics and the Children’s Tumor Foundation.
