Archie Goes on a Date with Reggie

I just randomly found this in the gallery.  Yeah, the slash subtext seems a bit strong in older issues.  LOL.



Apparently Archie would choose Reggie over Betty.   XD

Reggie's beaming face in the second-to-last panel makes the whole thing.

First of all, that's really weird. XD I wouldn't have expected that in a million billion years. ???

Second of all, is that Jughead without his hat??  :idiot2:

There's likely more to that story than that page tells you. Still funny though.

The story is called "Actions Speak Louder than Words" and originally appeared in Pep 140 (August 1960). Don't know if it has been reprinted in digests.

Archie and Reggie want to go to the country club dance, but both are broke. 
 While walking along the street, they spot a $5 bill. ($5 is the admission price for a couple at the dance). They both dive for it, and Archie comes up with the bill. The guys shake hands, Reggie walks home  and  Archie gets ready for the dance.

Then you see what is shown in the panels above.

This is exactly why I need to finish setting up the wiki - so we can start tracking reprints more easily... Will see what I can do with that in the coming days.

Yeah, that's sweet. Two guys being "Bros", but in a cheeky way (I LOVE the frame where Reggie's face is just beaming and they're walking in like it's an actual date), doing the right thing after getting burned by a dame.

You're welcome. :D I love it when they asked Jughead for his five bucks and Jughead just pointed to the "buffet" sign. There are a whole bunch of Archie stories on that blog. I'm having lots of fun going through them all.

Haha, yeah. And the one where Archie was trying to get to school in the smallest number of steps. XD (There are also a few really great Jughead stories in the blog, including a half pager on Souphead, which is a character I'd been waiting to see.)
