Comments: “Riververse Rescue” The gang is in the virtual world and in a video game where they are warriors. They are there to help out their friend Jughead. Of course as it so often does with Jughead it is all about food. Betty, Veronica, Archie and Chuck are drawn as great looking knights.
“The Competitive Edge” The girls get more involved in video games then Archie and the boys. It does take only one thing to pull the girls away. It is funny to see the girls reaction to it.
“Food Demon” The Consumer is a vile villain on the loose in Riverdale and Superteen aka Betty Cooper is pinned down. Superteen does get a laugh while rescuing Archie.
“Game Plan” Archie finds working is a lot like playing a video game and he acts like it as he does his job. You can almost hear the video game music playing as you read this story.
This is a wonderful collection of short stories featuring Betty and Veronica as well as Archie is fun adventures that you are sure to love.
