Archie Wants to Win a Pizza Party for his Friends in ARCHIE'S FUNHOUSE COMICS DOUBLE DIGEST #14. Will They Appreciate His Efforts?? // Plus: I Miss Kevin Keller!!

ARCHIE'S FUNHOUSE COMICS DOUBLE DIGEST #14 features a lot of great classic stories featuring Archie, Reggie, Betty and the rest of the Riverdale Gang. Plus, there's this one reprint story towards the end featuring Archie, Nancy, and Chuck that I really enjoyed. But this digest features a brand new lead story that a whole lotta fun!

It seems that WRIV-FM is a local radio station and they are sponsoring a contest. Listeners have been given clues and they are to track down a winning pennant. The first person who brings the winning pennant to the radio station gets to host a pizza party for the winner's 20 closest friends, compliments of WRIV-FM!

Archie has been feeling like a mooch for way too long. He learned of this contest and figures that it's his big chance to give back to his many friends. The only problem is that he's got his eye on the prize, but isn't paying much attention to those around him.

Case in point...

This type of scene repeats throughout the story and affects pretty much all of Archie's pals and gals! You'll need to pick up the digest to see if Archie wins the contest -- and if he has any friends left after this contest!

"The Hunt Is On" is written by Paul Kupperberg, penciled by Jeff Shultz, inked by Jim Amash, lettered by Jack Morelli, and colored by Digikore Studios.

Incidentally, I really miss Kevin Keller. I miss his old series and he doesn't show up enough in Archie Comics' current batch of comic books. Hopefully, we'll learn about KEVIN IN THE CITY pretty soon. I keep worrying that this promised comic book series is going to fade away into the ether.

In the meantime, I really want to see a new Kevin Keller feature in an upcoming digest. I know that we will seeing new digest stories featuring Josie & the Pussycats, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Pat the Brat, and That Wilkin Boy. Why not Kevin Keller??
