Jughead's new look epic "The Matchmakers" is now available in one collection

From Archie Comics

Back in the spring of 2007, the world of Archie Comics was rocked by the publication of BETTY & VERONICA DOUBLE DIGEST #151, featuring the first installment of "Bad Boy Trouble," an epic tale spanning four issues that found Riverdale's favorite teens rendered in a realistic style!

The "new look" inspired months and months of debate and media coverage... and was so intriguing to fans that it led to further "new look" sagas. The most recent is the "Breakup Blues" saga currently concluding in the pages of PALS-N-GALS DIGEST... but in between, the crowned one got a taste of reality, too!

That's right: not only did Jughead get a "realistic makeover," but the intriguing tale he starred in led to a bit of a personality makeover as well. It all started when Archie, Betty, Reggie and Veronica agreed that Jughead needed a break from his "fifth wheel" status. They hatched a scheme to find a girl who would interest Jughead more than food and sleep… never realizing they would actually succeed! Or did they?

Comic book legends Joe Staton and Al Milgrom brought their years of experience to the Archie "new look," handling pencils and inks respectively, giving this story an extra-special touch.

Now, all four installments of this heralded tale from JUGHEAD'S DOUBLE DIGEST #139 through #142 are available in one convenient, affordable edition. The special 6 x 9 inch format contains 112 full-color, thrill-packed pages, with a low cover price of only $9.95 US! Whether reading it again or discovering it for the first time, don't miss the most talked about Jughead story of 2008!
