You might not even recognize them if they were not in a comic named Your Pal Archie. The look is an updated version. Jughead decides to learn to drive. Driving instructors beware. Archie teaches Jughead and the things Jughead does are almost impossible. He is a driver unlike anyone else. The punch line to this story well there really is not one. Jughead as usual ends up with some burgers. "A Night at the Opera" Veronica going to the opera without Archie leads to something else entirely. Jughead's borrowing money may just be the best thing to happen to Archie. It is a cutely told story with a stunning ending. "Sand-Wishes!" Story/Pencils by Dan Parent, Bob Smith Inks, Glenn Whitmore colors and Jack Morelli. This is a classic Betty & Veronica story. Betty & Veronica each get a wish and a shared wish from a genie. The girls do use their combined wish wisely. It will also give you a laugh.
