Indexer Notes

In this cover, the Archies still consist of only Archie, Reggie and Jughead. Even after the cartoon series added Betty and Veronica to the band, many stories and covers kept the older configuration due to the long lead time before publication.

Indexer Notes

Though Hot Dog acts throughout the story like he's Archie's dog, a line is added about Jughead asking Archie to watch him. This reflects the fact that Hot Dog was originally Archie's dog and became Jughead's.
