Jughead Contemplates the Perfect Gifts in JUGHEAD AND ARCHIE COMICS DIGEST #7

Riverdale has been overwhelmed by new Christmas stories this November and the lead story in JUGHEAD AND ARCHIE COMICS DIGEST #7 is no exception! "Fantasy Time" is an inventory story by the late George Gladir. Unlike his last inventory story, this story was actually a lot of fun.

The Riverdale Gang (Archie, Veronica, Betty, Reggie, Chuck, Nancy, and Pop Tate) have teamed together to purchase Jughead the perfect Christmas gift -- a new hat to replace his old shabby one! However, Jughead is broke. So instead of real presents, he came up with a list of fantasy presents that he would give to each of his friends -- if he had magical genii powers!

For example, Chuck's fantasy present is a robotic third arm that would allow him to work on his cartooning while cuddling with his girlfriend Nancy!

It turns out that Juggy is pretty good at imagining the perfect fantasy presents!

"Fantasy Time" is written by George Gladir, penciled by Pat Kennedy, inked by Bob Smith, lettered by Jack Morelli, and colored by Digikore Studios.
