ARCHIE DOUBLE DIGEST #242
When Archie has to make some quick cash to compensate for an accident he caused (thanks to a prank of Reggie’s), he gets busy working his free time away at a glue factory. Betty and Veronica are none too pleased that they don’t get to see their red-headed Romeo on the weekends anymore! Can Reggie do a good deed to make up for his wrongdoing, or will he only make matters stickier—a lot stickier? Find out in “Dollars and Scents,” the lead story to this laugh-packed double digest!
