It's a Snow Day in ARCHIE COMICS DOUBLE DIGEST #258 // PLUS: Secret Riverdale Scandals!

I got several great comic books this week, including ARCHIE COMICS DOUBLE DIGEST #258. This digest comic book features mostly reprint stories of classic Archie Comics stories, but starts out with a cute new short story.

The concept is pretty simple and can be summarized by looking at the top-right panels. It's about the instant transformation that kids go through once they learn that school has been canceled due to snow! That's the moment when the dreaded snow and cold become a high school student's best friend!

It mainly focuses on Archie, Jughead, and Betty, but a couple other main characters also show up briefly.

"Snow-Kay by Me" is written by J. Torres, penciled by Fernando Ruiz, inked by Rich Koslowsky, lettered by Jack Morelli, and colored by Digikore Studios.

Incidentally... I learned a few scandalous secrets about Riverdale USA on this dark winter night.

First...

It seems that Betty Cooper's home is infested by mice. It's so bad that Caramel gave up even trying!

Second...

I guess this is what Archie, Jughead, and Reggie do to entertain themselves when the girls aren't around! Mr. Lodge, I know how you feel tonight!

I wonder what else happens in Riverdale when people aren't looking??
