Cover Artist:  : Veronica Fish

Review:  ★★★★

Now that Mr. Fish knows Archie was the one responsible for destroying his mansion, it means Archie is out and Reggie is in, though not in Veronica’s mind.  With Archie short on ideas on how to wedge Reggie out of his new position, Archie goes back to Jughead for advice.  Of course things go terribly wrong and Archie’s clumsiness comes into play every step of the way for some humorous results.  It was good to see Archie and Jughead makeup to a degree as the best friends didn’t need to be apart for long.  I also enjoyed seeing Pop take a more active, and really crucial role this issue.  It makes sense that the man who runs the most popular spot in town is going to have overheard everyone’s secrets, while being tight-lipped about what he’s heard.  The mood was overall light and airy, but it looks like it’s only a matter of time until the drama cranks up again as Archie notices Betty hanging out with another guy.
