Tasting Parties & Petting Zoos in JUGHEAD & ARCHIE JUMBO COMICS DIGEST #10!

I'm really behind on reading my Archie Comics digests. Here is one from three weeks ago called JUGHEAD & ARCHIE JUMBO COMICS DIGEST #10, which features two brand-new lead stories. In order to help me catch up, I thought I would highlight plot summaries of these two tales plus interesting images from each tale.

The first story featured Jughead and Mr. Weatherbee in "The Feast and the Furious." This story was written by Alex Simmons, penciled by Fernando Ruiz, inked by Rich Koslowski, lettered by Jack Morelli, and colored by Digikore Studios. This was a pretty simple story. Jughead and the 'Bee go on a daylong "tasting party." Basically, they bond over food. Lots of it.

There was one cameo that grabbed my attention. Do you guys think this is a young Clay Walker or is this just wishful thinking on my part??

Then there is "The Snack Attack" by Fernando Ruiz, Bob Smith, Jack Morelli, and Digikore Studios. I liked this story more than the first story. It was definitely more complex. Mr. Weatherbee arranges for a field trip at Honey Bear's Petting Zoo -- off-season because it's cheaper. Of course, the food booth is closed because it's off-season. That doesn't stop Archie and Jughead from creating a sticky mess while trying to start up the Honey Fountain!! Looks like these petting zoo animals have been groomed to crave some. Run guys! Run!!

By the way, who keeps a bear at a petting zoo??
