Wow, first they try to ditch a helpless unconscious girl to go make out, and then they help themselves to her prescription meds? And this in the era pf the Comics Code cracking down?

I’m sort of surprised Reggie didn’t try to take advantage of the unconscious Betty. He seems like the kind of guy who would slip roofies to girls when he’s in college. Maybe he copped a feel off panel.

It’s like “Weekend at Bernie’s,” but with way more weird sexual subtext.

Also, the “Betty is trash” dialogue…man, that was disturbing.

BR: You made the Weekend at Bernie’s first.

It’s fucked up. It’s fucked up by the standards of Archie Comics, and that is seriously saying something.

Weirdly, it’s also probably the most realistic story every, featuring everyone’s favorite budding little sociopaths…

Creeepy shit.

It’s amusing that only when she’s got absolutely no chance of waking up/doing anything about it that Betty’s so-called ‘friends’ dare to speak honestly about her.

Am I the only one who thinks Betty looks cute when she’s stoned?

Pardon my French, but what the fucking fuck? Who WROTE this story?
You know what, though- to be fair to Betty, she’s the only one who ISN’T acting insane in this one. Because she’s COMATOSE.

@Chris Lowrance: the best you can do is SHUDDER? Is this TOO shocking for a detailed analysis from you of how this can play out?

…my God. This *IS* the moral event horizon of the Archie universe. None of the characters will come back the same…

If it’s 1964, then yeah, I’m guessing LBJ is President Lyndon Baines Johnson, who often went by his initials. What’s kind of odd is that they used him, and not his Republican opponent in that year’s election, Barry Goldwater, since the similarly named John Goldwater owned Archie Comics, and it would have been something of an in-joke.

PaulW – Yeah, that’s all I got. I thought Betty was sort of operating in a vacuum. Now I realize the whole Archie universe is like one long Joe R. Lansdale story.

Wait, but Reggie didn’t take any pills, either. Why isn’t he doing anything about Betty Cooper’s current insanity?

Yes, Mary, stoned Betty does look kind of cute…
