That's true, just not in the city like Dallas

Point taken. I've never been to Dallas, and so I don't have much of a mental image of that city, particularly what a typical residential area looks like. Just what I tend to see on TV shows, which is like a helicopter flyover of the downtown area.
Haha yeah it's a fairly boring city, so by not visiting you're not missing out on much


I'm from Houston.  I like Dallas.  I've lived all over.  All cities are boring.  Trust me.  The novelty wears off of everything.  It's not where you are, it's who you're with.  You gotta find the cool people wherever you are and you won't be bored.

Good point. It's the same thing when visiting cities for vacation... You always see all the cool stuff rather than realizing it isn't always cool when living there

"Veronica in Texas" was just reprinted last month in one of the B&V digests. I enjoyed it, but didn't learn a thing about Texas. Neither did Veronica, since she spent most of the story with concussion-induced amnesia laboring under the delusion that she was "Dusty Marlowe, Rodeo Star" (from a novel she'd been reading on the plane just before she hit her head due to unexpected turbulence). As "Dusty", she dyed her hair red, which made her look amazingly like Cheryl Blossom (admittedly not much of a concern for readers in 1991, when the story was first published in VERONICA #17). I kinda miss Lady Smitty.

Maybe they got feedback after Veronica in Australia and Veronica in Africa where they bang you over the head with factoids about those places.

All of the Veronica travel stories were like that, as far as I can remember. This one contained a couple of insignificant statistics about Dallas and Houston, but they didn't really register because they were just mentioned in passing, and had no bearing on the plot. The only factoid that had any real bearing on the story was the actual purpose of rodeo clowns (to distract the bull when the rider is thrown and in danger of being trampled).

I guess the "Around the World with Veronica" stories were losing steam with readers by that time, and the following issue's "Veronica in the Bahamas" (#18) turned out to be the last. I'd still like to see them all collected in one big trade paperback.

It's in Betty & Veronica Jumbo Comics Digest #255.

Which, by the way, doesn't look like this issue that was solicited a few months ago...


Instead it looks like this:


It officially went on sale July 26th, but I think my subscription copy arrived almost a week early. This is another one of those "switcharoo solicits" that hardly ever gets mentioned, but in the last couple of months there were a spate of them (I think the revised cover art originally appeared on a solicitation for Archie's Funhouse digest, which seems to have skipped an issue, or maybe I'm thinking of the previous B&V Friends Jumbo Comics Digest #254), culminating in the announcement that Jughead & Archie Double Digest was being cancelled and replaced by Archie & Me Comics Digest. It should still be on sale at Barnes & Noble and Wal-Mart brick & mortars, as well as wherever digital comics are sold.

At any rate, various digest shipping dates as solicited got changed, as well as the contents, page count, and cover art... so things appear to be in a volatile state in digestland. The last time it happened on that scale was a few months before both Archie's Funhouse and Jughead & Archie got cut back from 10 times a year to only six times a year.

Thanks!  I have a subscription to that digest and I actually started reading that issue last night so I'll see that story soon.
