Comments: “The Great Tree Spree” Archie and the gang want to buy a Christmas tree but everyone is sold out. H. M. Bugg is behind it all and he has his reasons. He is out to ruin Christmas for all in town. Archie and the gang are going to do what they can to stop him and save Christmas for the town. One man’s heart is made warmer by a gift given to bring happiness. So the town of Riverdale has a Merry Christmas! The art is done in the traditional Archie Comics style so it looks wonderful.
“Yule Tube” Archie does make a Christmas video of his father as Santa. Poor Fred working with Archie is no fun for him. The video does turn out though with a little help from a special guest star. Great art and a fun short story make this work.
“Jingle’s New Job” Poor Reggie is always teasing Jingles and Jingles does have a way of getting even. Jingles is fun. He is just the character to have around for Christmas.
“It’s the Thoughtlessness that Counts” Yes even Archie can screw up giving out Christmas presents. Lucky for him he has two forgiving girlfriends. The art is cute and so are all the characters and their reactions.
There is a cute one-page strip about the sounds of Christmas.
This is just the thing to get you in the holiday spirit.
