The Riverdale Kids Take Over Lodge Manor in BETTY & VERONICA COMICS DOUBLE DIGEST #229!

I just got finished reading my copy of BETTY & VERONICA COMICS DOUBLE DIGEST #229. Among several reprints of classic stories featuring Betty, Veronica, and Sabrina the Teenage Witch, this comic book digest features a very funny new short story at its beginning.

This short story starts with Mr. Lodge coming home to all sorts of zaniness. Lodge Manor is overrun with students! There are cosplayers in one room and RPG gamers in another. And then there's the volleyball club and the tennis club and the reptile club and the fencing club... It's crazy!

So why is this happening? Apparently, Archie had an idea...

I still don't know why Mr. Lodge hasn't filed a restraining order against that troublemaker!!

I don't want to spoil too much, but this doesn't work out too well for Mr. Lodge. All of the clubs are eventually thrown out -- with the exception of one important club! Too bad he didn't throw them all out when he had the chance!

By the way, I've got something for you Two-Fisted Toni Topaz fans out there. Our perennial covergirl makes a cameo appearance in this issue. Check her out as she gets a bit jiggy with Smithers!

"The Club House" is scripted and penciled by the ever-talented Fernando Ruiz, inked by Bob Smith, lettered by Jack Morelli, and colored by Digikore Studios.

Two Fisted Toni, doesn't that sound dirty. I'm SURPRISED Archie comics would call her that.

BettyReggie: Yeah, that nickname was from her first appearance. I don't think it's appeared since then, though I keep using it on this blog! :P

Oh and Donny, I agree. Fernando's work is beautiful! -Jon
