Veronica Teaches Her Father a Lesson about Money in BETTY & VERONICA JUMBO COMICS DIGEST #228

I finally got the opportunity to read through my copy of BETTY & VERONICA JUMBO COMICS DIGEST #228 earlier today. This issue featured a new lead story featuring Veronica Lodge.

The concept was pretty fun. Mr. Lodge is fuming. It turns out that Veronica has already blown out her Christmas budget and he has had enough. He decided that she needs to learn a lesson about money and she will learn that lesson working at his mall!

He contacts the mall's manager and tells him to find an appropriate job for his daughter. Which of course goes over like a lead balloon!

What happens next is a series of mall improvement efforts imagined by Veronica and billed to Mr. Lodge! For example...

The food court's make-over is just one of several costly enhancements implemented by Riverdale High's resident rich girl. I think you can figure out where this story is heading...

"Are You Being Served?" is written by Paul Kupperberg, penciled by Fernando Ruiz, inked by Bob Smith, lettered by Jack Morelli, and colored by Digikore Studios.
