Comments: “oh, Brother… or Sister!” Archie and Jughead take Jellybean for her first sled ride. One thing leads to another and Reggie ends up buried in snow. It is fun to watch the progression of events leading up to it.
“The Ice Breaker” Archie gets the chance to help Mr. Lodge and for once he does not screw up, Mr. Lodge does. Beautiful wintry art accompanies this story.
“Hot Lips” Jughead does a good deed and gets paid in affection. Poor Jughead gets all warm just not in a way he wanted.
“Cold Nose, Warm Heart” Archie’s generosity and warm heart is its own reward of course though money is nice to. It is a warmhearted story. The art is the usual great style you have come to expect from Archie Comics.
“A Dog’s Lament” Hotdog messes up Archie’s coat and than makes up for it. A dog is a man’s best friend. Hotdog does prove this and all the beautifully illustrated girls he finds prove it to.
“Garbage In Garbage Out” Only Jughead could make taking out the garbage an adventure. He is truly unique in all he does and it is no different with trash.
