Genre

Characters
Veronica Lodge; Archie Andrews; Betty Cooper; Jughead Jones; unnamed man from Altera
Synopsis
Archie, Betty, and Veronica land on the planet Altera to find out who snatched Jughead while spacewalking. They notice that while Altera is more advanced technologically than Earth, all their decor is from the Victorian era. It turns out that one day a 1910 Saws and Rearbuck mail-order catalog fell from the sky (apparently from a time capsule launched from Earth), and Alterans treated it as sort of a bible. And because a picture of Mr. Rearbuck on the title page of the catalog looked similar to Jughead, Altera decided he was the "great spirit" Rearbuck, and treated him like royalty.
Reprints

Indexer Notes

"Saws and Rearbuck" is an obvious parody of Sears and Roebuck. An early 20th-century car on the planet looked remarkably similar to Archie's jalopy, but in green.
