Credit Cards Are Christmas Cards in BETTY & VERONICA JUMBO COMICS DIGEST #228

I wrote yesterday about a new Christmas story featuring Veronica Lodge in BETTY & VERONICA JUMBO COMICS DIGEST #228. However, Issue #228 is a Jumbo Digest. That means that we readers were treated to a second brand-new Christmas-themed story in this issue!

The second short story in this digest featured both girls as Betty comes to Lodge Manor on Christmas Eve to help Ronnie decorate her Christmas Tree.

This is a great story for highlighting how different Veronica and Betty are when it comes to money. Betty has one credit card that she uses occasionally to purchase gasoline. One the other hand, Veronica keeps hers in a special storage cabinet so that she can enjoy their myriad colors!

Anyway, the pair discover a snag when they discover that Veronica's Christmas decorations are all soggy and moldy. It turns out that a water pipe burst earlier in the year and the decorations were unknown victims of that household flood.

Veronica experiences a moment of panic before being struck by a sudden brainstorm for makeshift decorations! I won't ruin the ending for you, but these new decorations are definitely suited to Veronica and her family!

"It's In The Cards" is written by Dan Parent, penciled by Bill Galvan, inked by Jim Amash, lettered by Jack Morelli, and colored by Digikore Studios.

Interesting that Dan Parent wrote it but didn't draw it. Usually he draws and writes or just draws. I haven't picked this up yet, but I will since I'm a sucker for Jumbo Comics.

It was a good digest. Lots of Christmas materials as well as vintage stories. :)
