Fall Leaves Jughead & Archie All Cold in JUGHEAD AND ARCHIE COMICS ANNUAL #6!

I'm continuing to catch up with my Archie Comics digests. My latest acquisition was JUGHEAD AND ARCHIE COMICS ANNUAL #6, which features a ton of cool reprints and one brand-new lead story featuring Archie, Jughead, Betty, and Hot Dog at their local fall festival.

It's difficult to do justice to this short story without ruining the ending. And, trust me, this story has a great gag on the final panel of the final page that really connects everything together.

That said, Archie might be all about the falling leaves, but Jughead is all about the food! He came to this festival with one mission in mind: To eat!!

Unfortunately, one major barrier keeps interrupting his binge: Leaves!!

No matter what he does, Juggy can't grab a snack without also catching a mouthful of leaves!!

Will Jughead finally find an edible snack? And where does Archie's nostalgic reminiscing about fall colors come into all this?? I'll leave that up to you to find out!

"The Fall of Jughead & Archie" is a great story written by Craig Boldman, penciled by Fernando Ruiz, inked by Bob Smith, and lettered by Jack Morelli. You can read this new story in JUGHEAD AND ARCHIE COMICS ANNUAL #6.

I'm hoping this was written recently and not something Archie had been saving in the vault, because Craig Boldman rules and I hope he continues to write for Archie. I asked Alex Segura on twitter if Craig would be writing for Archie and he just said, "you never know". I think he's written some of the best Archie stuff in the last 20 years.

It looks like Fernando Ruiz is primed to become the main Archie Comics artist, following in the footsteps of Harry Lucey, Dan DeCarlo and Dan Parent. I do like his style, although Gisele impresses me, too. Don't see enough of her work.
