ARCHIE by Mr. Hawthorne



The entire gang is here, represented in one way or another. "No-Prize" to whoever can figure out the back story behind this. ;)

Oh, and you'll also notice a couple of nods to Andy's piece :)

best,
Mike

PS - Before anyone calls me on it, I KNOW that a state pen. would never allow someone that close the fence where they can reach inmates. Trust me, I know. Used my artistic license, so sue me.

EDIT: I posted the made up back story to this piece over on my blog. Thanks!

This is awesome! I'm guessing that Archie dusted Reggie for being a snitch. Probably not too long after knocking up Betty (since Veronica went Hollywood). Jughead was probably in on it, he's always been Archie's bitch and still is obviously. And hey, Moose was carrying a torch for Reggie. I wonder if Reggie knew?
