Indexer Notes

Split into four chapters with the following titles: It's Better Than Forsythe (pages 1-7), One of the Guys (pages 8-10), Cakewalk (pages 11-14), and Not My Special Talent (pages 15-22).

Jughead is revealed to have come from a rich family, who lost their fortunes when Jughead was ten. The meaning of the S on Jughead's shirt is indirectly revealed. Bolling's Pressure Cleaners on page 4 is a reference to long-time Archie writer and artist Bob Bolling.
