Size Matters When It Comes to Christmas Trees! Find Out How in JUGHEAD AND ARCHIE COMICS ANNUAL #17!

I've been taking advantage of my extra-long holiday weekend to catch up with my stockpiled comic books. Case in point: JUGHEAD AND ARCHIE COMICS ANNUAL #17! It features an all-new lead story featuring Archie, Jughead, and Vegas. It's titled "Trees Are The Times" and it's written & drawn by Fernando Ruiz, inked by Bob Smith, lettered by Jack Morelli, and colored by Digikore Studios.

The story is pretty simple, but a lot of fun! Archie and Juggie find themselves in trouble yet again with Mr. Weatherbee after one of their schemes backfired (yet again!!). To make it up to the 'Bee, Archie has tracked down the biggest Christmas Tree in Riverdale and plans to sneak it into the school as a surprise for the principal.

Of course, Archie's schemes rarely turn out the way that he would prefer. I mean, how are two teen boys going to transport the biggest Christmas Tree across town and get it into the school and set up without anyone noticing?? (Hint: They can't!!) They'll be lucky if they can even it get it through the front doors!

As always, Ruiz delivers a solid story with beautiful cartooning. This comic book digest is definitely worth picking up, not only for this Ruiz story, but also for a variety of classic stories featuring Archie, Jughead, and the rest of the Riverdale Gang!
