What are he most heartwarming archie stories? Or some stories that made you cry?


I love the story where Reggie saved Betty from almost getting hit by a truck. And soon after they had feelings for each other. It was called One Brief Moment.

There's a good one in WORLD OF ARCHIE ANNUAL #62 - a story called "Secret Date" where Archie sees someone at Pop's sitting in a booth holding up a magazine, H.O. Quarterly, and he can't believe there's someone else into scale model railroading like he is. As he approaches to make conversation, who should be behind that magazine when it's lowered but Ethel Muggs. Archie is surprised, but they start talking about model railroading, and Ethel mentions she's going to the big Train Expo in in Midvale tomorrow. Before he realizes it, Archie's invited himself along with her.  On his way to meet Ethel the next day, he thinks "Well, this is a little weird, me going somewhere with Ethel! Well, it's not like it's a date or anything, we're just going as friends!" Then he's surprised when he rings her doorbell and Ethel answers the door, dressed to the nines, new hairstyle, makeup... the whole kaboodle. Not only does he wind up having a great time with Ethel at the Train Expo, but afterwards they spend the entire evening together, dining at a Mexican restaurant, going to a comedy club and then hitting the dance floor later on. Archie can't help but compare Ethel to Betty & Veronica, and finds his time spent with Ethel to be a lot more relaxing and fun by comparison. At the end of the story, he kisses her goodnight, but then invites her to go to a classic car show the next week. The story is credited as having been written by John Wilcox, a writer with whom I'm completely unfamiliar - this is the first story I can remember seeing credited to him.


I don't recall the specifics of the story any longer and I haven't run across it in a few years, but the gist is Betty got let down by Archie while attending a dance and in the final panel Jughead says to Betty "If there should ever come a time I'd willingly kiss a girl it'd be you" (or close to that).  It makes my heart go pitter-pat just recalling it.

I'm not sure if I'm remembering the same story or just another one where he said something similar. The situation was that Jughead was comforting Betty in one of the many cases of her being on the receiving end of Archie's typical emotional neglect, and he reveals how much he appreciates her in a rare candid moment for him. Anyway, the context of whatever the exact words were amounted to Jughead telling Betty that if he were ever going to give up avoiding girls, she'd be the one he'd do it for. Which, by Jughead standards, is like writing her a romantic love sonnet. I could swear I've seen a basically similar scenario in two or three different stories, along with a number of lesser passing admissions along the lines of "You know, Betty, for a girl, you're okay."


"Home Is Where My Heat Is", which happens to be in my gallery. It's about Ms. Grundy's apartment home being burned in a fire, and The Gang helps her out...


The story wherein a lost dog knocks on Andrews home, when Archie opens the door the dog lets itself in much to the surprise of Archie's parents which scared the poor dog. Archie's mother suggested to look for the dog's owner and hinted that Archie may get a reward for doing so. Archie daydreams of his possible rewards like a date with the dog's owner or perhaps material gains. When they reach the dog's owner's home, it turns out that the owner is a lonely old lady who can't afford to give any reward but a simple thank you. Archie concluded that it was the best reward he had received.
