Riverdale Auxiliary: Episode 7

Welcome to new and returning Radio Free Riverdale fans! It’s the seventh edition of the Riverdale Auxiliary, and although the issue was a Jumbo, I’ve kept the auxiliary to a digestible length. No one likes long meetings, right? Right. Okay, on with it!

Lucy and Evan are back with more reviews of Archie comics (and at least one big surprise) as they dive into The World of Archie Jumbo Comics #55! The World of Archie Jumbo Comics is full of more winter fun than an Alaskan Andrew WK concert. (And – at last – some Josie and the Pussycats comics!) In the latest episode of Radio Free Riverdale, they cover

  • promposals, promposals, promposals!
  • horror movies and pregnancy (spoiler alert!)
  • the social history of gift returns
  • Josie and the Pussycats: Pepper vs. Valerie
  • way too many Friends references
  • the mystery of Jughead’s “S” shirt
  • and everyone’s (or Lucy’s) favourite: Archie trivia!

All this in a comic that makes use of the word “reconnoiter.” Plus, we learn “Segue” is Lucy’s middle name. (For reals.) Please join us for the seventh episode of Radio Free Riverdale!
