    Betty and Me (1966) 41

    Story and art credit: Unknown. Giant size. After Archie's car gets stuck during a snowstorm, he somehow winds up at Betty's, and we all know Betty won't take advantage of the situation (right?) in "Snow Job." Betty in "Diagnostic Agnostic." Wow, Betty can do it all (we've seen her make a dress, cook, working at a hospital; what can't she do?), and here she adds to her long list of talents by painting Archie's portrait so it can hang in the school hallway in "Paint and Brush." Li'l Jinx in "Miss Mess." Dear Betty letters page. Pigs must be flying, because Archie not only buys himself a soda but Betty one too (for only ninety cents!), but things get sticky when Jughead begs him for a soda too in "I Scream Soda." Betty in "Recipe for Romance." Archie confuses Betty with Veronica when Betty dons a dark wig (and who said blondes have more fun?) in "A Wig and Wiggle." Pinup page. 48 pgs. Full color. Cover price $0.25.
