Indexer Notes

Adam, a character based on the late '70s interest in science fiction (as well as the hit TV mini-series "Roots"), appeared in two other Archie titles in May 1979: Jughead # 288 and Betty and Veronica # 281. Reader interest in the character must have been less than expected: the ending promises that he will be going to Riverdale High School, but this was never followed up, and Adam was quietly dropped.
