Archie Comics Presents: The Love Showdown Collection (Archie Americana)

Archie: The Love Showdown Collection - Dan DeCarlo, Henry Scarpelli I)Epicure Archie sits, his memory doused with repugnant pandertowing, feculent breath, moist with cornflake-caking, teeth sexual in their moon-like weirdness, he passes the hour like a malingering housepainter, languid with disaffection.

His magnitude dilates, but there is no answer.There is only... Veronica. 1.5 - 2.5 stars
