Comments: “Something Ventured, Something Gained” from Jughead # 200, 2010.
Jughead finds a new Diner and gives it a try. Here we get to see what happens if Jughead could and did gain weight like a regular person.
So when a witch causes you trouble in Riverdale who do you go to for help, Sabrina the teenage witch of course.
The gang all stick together and teamwork wins the day. Jughead even learns a valuable lesson.
“My Ideal” from Betty & Veronica # 243, 1976.
Betty’s way of looking at Archie will leave you in awe. In her eyes, he is the perfect man. The idea is laughable.
“Enemy Action” from That Wilkin Boy # 2, 1969.
The Wilkin family and their neighbors do have fun with their feud. It’s like the Hatfields and the McCoys with the kids in love but the dads steadfast against it. This leads to fun for us the readers.
“Back from the Future” from Archie Giant Series # 590, 1988.
Marshal January McAndrews makes her debut in this story. She is after sometimes thieves. The future travelers all have cool devices that will amaze you. Jan is the perfect girl for Jug. January is so positive in her attitude it is contagious.
“Quivery Delivery/Umbilical Miracle” from Archie’s Pal Jughead Comics # 50 (Vol.2), 1983.
Jughead’s mother is having a baby. This is one exciting delivery as it does not take place in a hospital. The place does fit for a delivery. We also see where and how Jughead’s little sister gets her unique nickname.
“Karma Comedy” from Jughead # 11, 1989.
Reggie takes over writing this story and treats Jughead as he sees fit. Even with Reggie writing the story you just know Jughead will find a way to get even. Jughead is odd and he is also intelligent as we see here. This is a cute story.
“Son of Hercules” from Jughead’s Fantasy # 3, 1960.
Jughead’s secret formula does a lot more than create an awful tasting hamburger. This leads Jughead to being a target.
Jughead for food can do just about anything. You will not believe the feats he can do.
Archie and Jughead and their friends do know who to have a good time and one that is uniquely funny. These characters in these stories and any others in this digest will entertain you in a way like no others can.
