Does Archie Have What It Takes to Impress an International Supermodel? Find out in WORLD OF ARCHIE COMICS ANNUAL #50!

I wrote a little bit about WORLD OF ARCHIE COMICS ANNUAL #50 last month when I shared a two-page short story called "Everybody Loves Archie," which also appeared on Archie Comics' YouTube channel. But I didn't share anything about the fun lead story at the beginning of this comic book digest.

"The World of Archie" finds Archie and Reggie trying to impress the various international girls when the Global Teen Pageant comes to Riverdale. The problem is that our favorite pals are a tad bit too immature for these worldly supermodels.

Interestingly, the girls are all curiously intrigued with Jughead! Most of the teen boys that they meet are interested in their bodies, but Juggie is obsessed with their native meals! As one put it, "there's one who doesn't fit the mold!" Which, frankly seems like an odd Indian expression!

Meanwhile, Betty is fretting over the guys' obsession with these traveling beauties. But Veronica isn't sweating it. She knows that the guys are in way over their heads. But can she maintain her resolve? Pick up WORLD OF ARCHIE COMICS ANNUAL #50 to find out!

I was looking at this picture of the various pageant girls and was curious about the two leads. Is that Banni and Violette (here and here) from the current "Farewell Riverdale" storyline?

"The World of Archie" is written by Craig Boldman, penciled by Dan Parent, inked by Bob Smith, lettered by Jack Morelli, and colored by Digikore Studios.
