As we move swiftly into the holiday season, let’s take a moment to reflect.  Reflect upon the beauty of the falling leaves. Reflect upon the scent of fresh baked pies carried on the breeze and the laughter around a freshly cooked turkey. Reflect upon the sheer existential dread that comes with realizing you’ll need to untangle those holiday lights again.

In Jughead and Archie Jumbo Comics Digest #23, our titular heroes join Riverdale High School’s Holiday Decorating Committee to get out of trouble with Mr. Weatherbee.

Or are they doomed to spend Christmas in detention? Find out in “Santa’s Little Helpers!” the brand new lead story to this JUMBO-SIZED comics double digest!
