ARCHIE & FRIENDS ALL-STARS VOLUME 2: BETTY’S DIARY
Originally appearing as a feature in Archie’s Jokebook, then later in its own series as well as in the pages of BETTY, the “Betty’s Diary” stories are among the most fondly remembered of all Archie tales, with a tremendous following that exists to this day.  Told with first person narrative by Betty herself, the stories focused on the day to day events in her life as she truthfully related them in her diary.  Warm, funny, touching, thought provoking, occasionally heartrending, but always told with a down to earth realness, Betty’s “diary entries” made fans smile, cheer and think about life.  Now readers can relive these oft-requested tales in this upscale edition!
SCRIPTS: Kathleen Webb, Frank Doyle, Rod Ollerenshaw
