Issue Notes

After two test issues in the two previous years, "Life With Archie" became a regular bi-monthly title starting with this issue.

This issue also established "Life With Archie" as the place for Archie and the gang to do adventure-based stories; to demonstrate this, the title's brand was changed to "Archie Adventure Series" instead of the regular "Archie Series."
