Comments: “Carnival Love” Archie, Jughead and Betty, and Veronica with some other friends as well. A new friend is Eliza and an old one Harper are also there and they make a nice couple.
It is great to see the way Archie Comics is handling all the differences in its characters. All these differences and they are all friends.
“Wind Surfing Woes!” Archie is trying his hand at windsurfing and being Archie he is having some difficulty. So he gets a teacher. He also gets a remote which in the hands of Jughead does more harm than good. It is fun to watch Veronica beaten by Cheryl Blossom. Archie well he gets what he deserves to.
The art is done beautifully in the classic style. All the girls in bikinis and bathing suits look gorgeous. Yes, the guys are hunks too. It is great to see so many characters that you rarely see as well in this issue.
Eliza is a fresh new character that fits right in with the rest of the Archie Universe and hopefully, we will see a lot more of her. She is smart, fun, rich, cute, a pansexual to boot, and just all-around wonderful.
