Archie #590 (Archie Comics)
By Batton Lash & Bill Galvan

It’s parent-teacher night of Archie’s Freshman year, and Veronica and Jughead’s parents begin comparing notes about the young man their respective kids have been hanging out with. Archie, meanwhile, is determined to spend a quiet evening at home studying, but his friends have a different idea. Meanwhile, Mr. Weatherbee’s quest to find a spy from the school board heats up. Aside from the sheer joy of this story, what strikes me as a high school teacher is how frighteningly accurate the whole thing is. Frankly, stuff like this goes on more than we’d like to admit at high schools around the country. The only quibble I can find that diminishes the reality of the story is how Miss Grundy begins discussing Archie’s antics with his parents in a room full of other parents — that’s a major no-no for a teacher. But I can easily overlook that for the sake of one of the best Archie stories I’ve read in a very long time. I really hope that Batton Lash manages to keep making regular contributions to this line once this story is over.
