'Tis the Season! // Two Reasons to Enjoy WORLD OF ARCHIE COMICS DOUBLE DIGEST #54!

I was checking out WORLD OF ARCHIE COMICS DOUBLE DIGEST #54 tonight and was treated to a fun story featuring Archie's efforts to earn some extra money for Christmas cash by doing odd jobs for his friends. I don't think that it's too much of a spoiler to reveal that he ends up creating far more trouble for his friends than assistance!

But the artwork is beautiful! I used to really disliked the artwork of Pat & Tim Kennedy when I first read their stories in LIFE WITH ARCHIE. Now I cannot get enough of them! I really wish that we could see more of these guys in one of Archie Comics' main monthly titles. Until then, I look forward to seeing their pencils in the various digests (along with Fernando Ruiz and Gisele, of course!)

There were two things that really got me excited about this short story!

1. Nero Would Look So Cute!: I absolutely adore Vegas' outfit! He can really pull off a sweater and stocking cap combo!

2. Coming Up Next: The Trial of Archie Andrews: Surely I can't be the only person who finds it funny that Archie nearly killed a centenarian with his toxic cookies?? I think it would be great if the Kennedy brothers came up with a multi-part story featuring Archie Andrews' criminal misdeeds!

"All Worked Up" is written by Angelo DeCesare, penciled by Pat & Tim Kennedy, inked by Jim Amash, lettered by Jack Morelli, and colored by Digikore Studios.
