Comments: “On the Road Again!” The Archies go on tour in the Philippines for the start of their international tour. The Archies try to toughen up their image but things are best left as is. Reggie well Reggie does want to be tough and thinks he is and when it comes right down to it he is not.
The art is gorgeous as it shows us the Archies’ sightseeing and playing. It does capture their essences.
“From India with Love!” Archie and Ray go to India. The Taj Mahal is illustrated to give it a majestic look. Raj gives Archie the tour and we get to see the major attractions in India. Raj here ends up taking after Archie in his pursuits.
“Oh, Canada!” Betty and Veronica are off to Canada and they do take different approaches to being ready for the trip. It is too bad Canada is not shown off very much here. The only thing that is shown is the Prime Minister.
“When in Rome…” Reggie is being Reggie here as he gets out of work on a trip to Rome. Poor Reggie things just never seem to work out right for him. It is fun to watch though.
Archie and his friends always provide a good time with lots of fun for you the reader.
