Comments: “Gigononmetry!” Archie sees a guitar he wants to own. He also sees the price. The story gets Betty involved and she is so nice and so beautiful. How can Archie not see her as more than a friend? Betty is definitely one of a kind that you wish there were more of.
“Spoiler Sport!” This has some not to subtle humor. Here it’s Archie vs Reggie. Archie thinks he has everything covered. The art style is beautifully done in traditional Archie Comics style.
“Catch ‘Em If You Can!” Archie does get a few odd jobs from an app. He takes doing them seriously. Poor Reggie though just does not know when he is beaten. It is fun watching Reggie go down in defeat.
“Sweet Smell of Success!” Archie by not getting what he wants gets exactly what he wanted. It is great to see the gang all having a fun time.
“High School 2021A.D.” This story is from Betty # 46, February 1997. Script by George Gladir, Pencils Stan Goldberg, Inks Mike Esposito, Letters Bill Yoshida, and Colors Barry Grossman. Here we get a peek at the future and learn maybe the past was as good or better in some ways.
Archie is one fine young man and he will always entertain you with his antics.
