BETTY & VERONICA SPECTACULAR #88
“Geeks Rule”: Betty and Archie get jobs on the “Geek Patrol,” a group of computer tech-sperts seen in last month’s VERONICA #193.  To keep Betty from spending so much time with Archie, Veronica joins the squad, too… and it isn’t long before she inadvertently unleashes a vicious computer virus!  Co-starring computer gurus Dilton and Veronica’s cousin, Marcy, this “geek-tacular” issue also features a “techie” quiz, internet tips, geek-chic fashions, and more!

JUGHEAD #194
“Unfair Fair”: Reluctantly attending the Job Fair at his parents’ insistence, Jughead has a plan: he’ll scare away potential employers with tall tales about jobs he’s botched.  Will his ruse succeed, or will Jughead’s fears of gainful employment become a reality?
“A Rude Awakening”: Hot Dog tries everything he can to wake Jughead up for the grand opening of the “Rise and Shine” bakery. But which is stronger: Jughead’s desire for sleep, or his massive appetite?
