Archie and the gang sure find themselves in some crazy adventures in this trade. These are vignettes of the day in the life of Archie, Jughead, Veronica, Betty, and others of his friends. Two of these stores are based on Pop who runs the Chocklit Shoppe. Pop asks for Archie and Jughead’s help with exposure for the soda shop and in these stories the boys give Pop more than he can handle. Veronica takes center stage in a few stories as well.

Two new stories and a throwback story from the town of Riverdale. Archie Andrews has always been the the nice, reliable guy; hence the first story. Archie offers to help Jughead learn to drive, as with everyone in the gang leaving town Jughead would not have a ride to the town soda shop. After every driving school in town (and the whole state) throw him out, Jughead asks his friend Archie to help him out. Archie agrees, because he is a great guy, and takes Jughead in the middle of nowhere to help his driving. But Jughead may be a hopeless case.

In the second story, Archie has planned a romantic get together with Veronica, but she has tickets to the opera and Archie is not invited...

When Archie’s newly formed rock band gets a gig, Archie’s perfectionism drives a wedge as he puts bandmates before friendship. Will the band survive the road to the gig?

Among many things I have learned along the way in my life, there are some common truths that one will never escape: the sky is blue; water is wet; and an Archie comic is an Archie comic is an Archie comic.

The roster of classic characters are included in the story: Archie, in his traditional role of the under-confident protagonist; Jughead as Archie’s burger-munching best friend; Bettie and Veronic...

The first story is about Moose and his stomach; he is hungry and all he wants is a snack. Midge, his girlfriend, will not give him a dollar because of dinner plans they have. Moose runs into Jughead who makes him an offer that he can’t refuse. In the second story, it is a week in the life of Moose; his school work, his home life, his girlfriend, and football...
