Indexer Notes

There are lots of rock-related gags in this comic: Page 2, 4th panel: a sign reading "Buy Zilch's Rock Candy"; another sign reading "Read the Daily Gravel"; a banner reading "Pebble for mayor" / Page 3, 3rd Panel: A sign outside an inn reads "Ye Boulder Inn"; a sign outside a theater reads "Now Playing: 'Rocks In The Head' starring Rocky Hudson, Rocky Marciano" [Rock Hudson was a famous movie star; Rocky Marciano was a heavyweight boxer] / Page 3, 5th Panel: A sign in a record store window reading "Rock Around The Clock with Rock Nelson"; Jughead mentions that they have "rock 'n' rock" music instead of "rock 'n' roll".

Synopsis
Li'l Jinx sees her dad standing near the front door, all ready to go to work, but sound asleep. Li'l Jinx wakes him up, opens the door and tells him he'll be late for work. Yawning, her dad walks out the door, saying (sleepily) that he came home late last night, can't seem to wake up and that he needs something - to wake him up. In the last panel, as he's saying "to wake me up", a snowball is seen flying towards his head...

Synopsis
In the final chapter of this adventurous story, Archie and the gang climb back into the earth ship, as another rock person runs onto the scene saying that the lab has just received a shipment of amnesia gas, a harmless gas that will make Archie and friends forget all about the rock people. The ship then burrows back out of the earth. Several hours later, they arrive at the entrance to the mine shaft and start heading for home. Reggie mentions that he doesn't like spelunking. Betty agrees. Archie says it's too boring. Jughead says that they were away all day and nothing exciting happened.
