Let’s face it: those thick, seasonally thematic Archie specials and spectaculars of years past were treasure-troves of good, old-fashioned comic book fun. This trade paperback offers up loads of, well, summer fun featuring Archie Andrews’ best gals, Betty Cooper and Veronica Lodge, in all manner of summer fashions, but especially bathing suits—which, of course, play havoc with the minds of all the Riverdale boys. Throughout this collection, Betty and Veronica vie for Archie’s attentions—usually with disastrous results, and the introduction from Dawn Wells, “Mary Ann” from “Gilligan’s Island,” examines the Betty-Versus-Veronica dynamic in light of the Mary Ann-Versus-Ginger debate.
