Comments: “The Race To Save Face!” Daisy Thunder is one gorgeous pink-haired race car driver. We even get a quick peek at a few superheroes, villains, and even monsters as the drivers go through town. Daisy is a cute rival for Archie. They do have fun competing even though one does blow the other one away.
“Winner Take All” Here it’s Archie vs Reggie in the final race. Things could not turn out any different here. Archie though does the right thing showing he does have a caring heart. The cars are illustrated as fast sporty race cars.
“Racy Story” Archie is off to the races. It is a dream come true as Archie races along and of course, it is never easy for Archie as the dream becomes a nightmare. He does get drawn in a racy yellow car that moves fast.
“Drag Drama” When it comes to boys and their cars, girls do not stand a chance. Unless you’re Betty and her ingenuity if you can’t beat them join them. Veronica well, poor Veronica even though she wins she loses.
“The Moose Is Still Loose” Dilton becomes a drag racer and no one is even close to him. Dilton is smart yet he cannot control love. Even love wins over intelligence.
This issue is all about speed and the need to race. Daisy Thunder is a great new character whom Archie would love to beat and she would love to have Archie’s heart beating for her.
Archie does fit right into the role of race car driver. It suits of character and style well.
