Preview: Archie Double Digest #232

Archie loves living large. A date with ol’ checkerboard fade promises an evening of refinement and deluxe treatment all the way (to the malt shop and back to your stoop). YOLO, he’ll often say. But for a young man of modest means with so many romantic pursuits, it’s important to employ a little fiscal responsibility. In this installment of Archie Double Digest, the Andrews family gets thrifty, tackling their own landscaping and scouring the bargain bins. But this is no summer bummer. One man’s trash is another’s treasure, and Archie’s parsimonious efforts prove downright penny-wise.

Oh, and remember that time young Archie and Betty went trick-or-treating with a bona fide extraterrestrial? That’s in here too.

  1. Don’t remember Little Archie looking like a dwarf. Prefer the more cartoony big-headed style from the 70’s . . .
