Comments: “Christmas Pie Guy” Jughead takes the risk and grabs a Christmas pie that Ms. Beazly made. From her reaction it could be the last thing he does. Ms. Beazly is illustrated in an angry mood here and one look at the art lets you know watch out. Jughead and his stomach better run fast. Jughead’s Christmas hat is a wonderfully designed one. Poor Jughead he is drawn showing both delight and fear. The expressions in this story are to die for and Jughead just might when he gets on Ms. Beazly’s bad side. Holly G! delivers some truly amazing art.
Thrills and chills and lots of fun excitement await you here.
The story is fun as poor Jughead gets on Ms. Beazly’s naughty list.
“Holiday Lights!” Veronica has the biggest and brightest holiday light display yet she ends up not using it and gets to enjoy the true spirit of Christmas. Having fun with friends makes her Christmas party wonderful. All the characters are illustrated in the traditional Archie manner.
“O Christmas Tree” The art is beautifully done. Archie makes one mistake with the Christmas tree and he knows he is in trouble. Lucky for him its Christmas and a certain someone does help out poor Archie during the yuletide season.
“Santa Baby!” Noelle Santa’s daughter pays Betty and Veronica a visit. Noelle just needed a little break and then the spirit of Christmas and giving hits her and its back to daddy. We see Santa is proud of his daughter which is a nice emotional moment. The art shows the girls as cute. Santa is shown as a caring father. He is wonderfully drawn.
“Santa Con Carne” Even Santa goes the Pop’s for the best burgers around. Jughead’s stomach always gets him into trouble. He is definitely going to make the naughty list after what happens here. The reindeer look adorable in this story.
These stories are sure to get you in the Christmas spirit.
