Comments: “That’s Just Beachy!” A movie is being filmed at the Riverdale beach which leads to Archie playing matchmaker. Sometimes things are best left alone and with Archie that might be all the time.
“The Big Chase” Having Archie umpire a girls baseball game is just asking for trouble. The girls are drawn cute and Archie loves looking at the cute girls.
“Shell Shock” Now this story has a great twist to it as Archie visits Mr. Lodge. The art style is classic Archie style and wonderful to see.
“Racketeers” Playing tennis with Jughead not as easy as it may at first seem. Getting someone to exercise who does not want to can be trying.
“A Really Hot Date!” Archie on Mars or Earth is a walking disaster. His luck is all bad here and it rubs off on others. One good thing does come of it he and his family do get a nice cool new home.
“Coaster To Coaster” Riding a roller coaster is so much fun well. Then they ride it again and again. The soaking wet Riverdale gang do look cute and even a bit pitiful.
“Shape Up Or Ship Out” Poor Archie gets a workout and gets out of shape. Veronica is drawn extra cute in this story. She also acts nice which is a welcome change.
“A Tale of Two Similars” Poor Archie he sees his luck change before his eyes. He also sees to pretty girls leave before his eyes.
“Monstrous Thoughts!” Great art showcasing the monster trucks. Archie does daydream of owning a monster truck and dreams of the pros and cons. Yes, dreams are nice sometimes nicer than reality.
“Concrete Evidence” With Archie doing a chore is never easy. What you expect is never what you get. It is fun to see it happen to someone other than you.
“Bad Luck Betty” The lil’ Archie’s do play some ball. Betty gets to join in and shows them what being bad luck means. The lil’ Archie’s are all drawn so cute when they were little kids.
“Lesson Plan” Archie just wants to get away from the thought of school starting and he does for a little while. Than misfortune and good fortune change his luck. The poor boy.
All the short one page cartoons are so funny they get you laughing super fast.
Archie and the gang from Riverdale are always so much fun to go along with on their adventures.
