Archie and Friends has become the place for Archie Comics to tell stranger tales that don’t necessarily fit in their other titles. Bring in Archie’s Superhero identity, bring in Little Archie, whatever, this is the place for it. In this issue, Angelo Decesare seems to want to introduce a new series to the line, “Little Archie’s Power Pets.” Little Archie and the gang bring their assorted pets to the state fair to take part in a pet pageant. Sabrina’s cat, Salem, decides to have a little fun and casts a spell that allows the pets to hear one another thinking. Able to communicate, the pets uncover a plot to rig the contest, and hilarity ensues. As far as Archie sub-series go, this is by no means the most ridiculous one I’ve ever heard of. The story is fairly funny, and the pets do get to demonstrate some fairly separate personalities (although, to be fair, most of their personalities are based on those of their respective owners). By the end of the story, the spell has gone noticeably unreversed, which leaves it open for a return to this series some time. I wouldn’t mind that so much – there’s potential here.
