Comments: “Magi Help You?” Betty and Veronica exchange Christmas presents and they also exchange presents with Harper and Ginger. This is a touching story about friendship. Beautifully presented and sure to get you in the Christmas spirit of giving. The art is so well done in the classic style of Archie Comics.
“Lip Service” Veronica is monopolizing Archie and Mr. Lodge steps in to lend a helping hand. Even Mr. Lodge will go against his own daughter when he knows what she is doing is wrong. All well that ends well here for Betty. The art is gorgeously done in the traditional Archie style.
“The Man in the Red Suit” Veronica with Betty’s help builds a Santa snowman. Again this story is done in the classic style of art and looks great. Veronica’s Santa though causes quite a fuss. She causes a widespread belief of something is happening.
“The Scary Season” Betty is in a blue funk and Veronica gets to cheer her up. Betty also meets Archie and Jughead now Betty does give them an early Christmas gift which none of them wanted. Betty though turns out to be in Christmas spirit. The art is beautifully done Betty looks good both sad and happy.
“X-Mess!” Veronica has a mix-up yet she handles it with pose and grace. Sometimes Veronica can be caring and here we see her at her best. She is beautifully drawn here and she is gorgeous.
This is a wonderful comic for Christmas and just the thing to get you in the spirit.
