Genre
science fiction; teen
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.

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.

Synopsis
Archie, Betty, and Jughead are exploring a cave off the beach. But the cave fills up with water when the tide comes in, forcing them deeper into the cave until they are cornered into a trapdoor in the ceiling. The door opens into the home of an old sailor who talks like a pirate. When the sailor describes how he uses the cave for smuggling, Betty reminds him that it's illegal. This prompts the sailor to get out a shotgun.

Characters
Archie Andrews; Jughead Jones; Betty Cooper; an old sailor
Synopsis
The sailor forces Archie, Betty, and Jughead at gunpoint up to the tower room. But they get some rope to escape, and climb out a window to a lower floor. They then hear the sailor fawning over a portrait of a lady named Emmaline. After finding a dress in a closet that looks like the one in the picture, they dress Jughead in drag to distract the sailor. Sure enough, the sailor thinks Emmaline has returned! This allows the others to dispose of the shotgun and call the cops. But the police tell them that the sailor is harmless and only "smuggles" stuff like groceries through the cave.
