Do you like this story?
I miss Pop Tate's Choklit Shoppe- the diner where the gang used to hang out a lot. I miss Jughead's burgers and milk shakes. I miss Moose and Midge, who in turn is Archie's secret crush. And how ego-maniac and jerky Reggie really is. I miss Dilton and his geekiness, he even managed to organize Archie room's for a time. And Betty, the all-American blondie who is not only smart (she's second to Dilton), but can be relied upon on a host of different things, including auto-mechanic. Veronica Lodge and her rich father Hiram, who always catches a clumsy Archie. And of course, Archie Andrews - unarguably the most famous red-head, the main character of the comics.
They were indeed a part of my growing up. Trips to the National Bookstore won't be complete without buying Archie Comics. Relatives coming home from the United States will always have room for some Archie Comics to me and my siblings. Idle time after school would be spent reading thru the comics, albeit I've finished reading them before.
With this love for the comics, the release of The Best Of Archie Comics was something I didn't pass by. Looking forward to finish all 400 pages of it and reminisce why I fell in love with the comics.
