ARCHIE & FRIENDS #122
“California Dreaming, Part Two”: Last issue, the news of Archie and his friends’ worldwide, mystery-solving adventures led to a major movie contract and a trip to Tinseltown!  While at a swank Hollywood party, the gang is kidnapped along with dozens of celebrity guests, and trapped in a ballroom with wall-to-wall food!  That may be fine for Jughead, but the others are determined to break both themselves and their famous fellow prisoners free.  The crazy climax features a thrilling “cat and costumed mouse” chase as the teens pursue the lead culprit racing through the Catalina Comic Convention!  It’s one explosive finish (did we mention the fireworks?) you can’t afford to miss! SCRIPT: Alex Simmons.  ART: Fernando Ruiz.
