  1. Since you asked in the podcast apparently Jughead wears a Whoopee cap which is often made by cutting jagged edges on an upturned fedora. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whoopee_cap

    I think you guys need to talk about Archie All CANADIAN Digest ( http://www.comics.org/issue/297526/ apparently available in ebook form as Archie goes to Canada https://www.comixology.com/PEP-Digital-95-Archie-Goes-to-Canada/digital-comic/94968 ), Archie’s popularity in Canada ( I swear there were stories about this on the internet but I can’t find them!!! at one point something like a third of Archie sales were in Canada IIRC which would mean three times the sales per person up here), and also his many cross overs with other famous characters like the Punisher, the Predator and so on.
