Jughead's Allergic to Exercise in JUGHEAD & ARCHIE COMICS DOUBLE DIGEST #11!

I wasn't expecting any comics from Archie Comics this week. Imagine my surprise when Husband Mark brought home my copy of JUGHEAD & ARCHIE COMICS DOUBLE DIGEST #11! Like most comic book digests, it features several classic reprint stories starring Jughead, Archie, Hot Dog, and Little Archie. But this particular issue featured a great original short story.

This particular story focused exclusively on Jughead and Archie. Carrot-Top is concerned about his best friend. He eats junk food all of the time, he never breaks a sweat, and he's beginning to get a paunch! Jughead reveals to Archie that there's a reason he lives the life of a coach potato: He's allergic to exercise!

Disgusted, Archie challenges his buddy to find the right type of exercise. They try jogging and biking and swimming, but every time they begin Jughead breaks out in a rash! It gets bad enough that even a game of Wii Tennis gets him all itchy! We're left wondering if Juggy is actually allergic to exercise or if he's just allergic to the thought of exercise!

"Don't Be Rash" was written by J. Torres, penciled by Bill Galvan, inked by Jim Amash, lettered by Jack Morelli, and colored by Digikore Studios.
