Betty pops into the library

archie libraries

Here’s another story for the Archi(v)e: “The Tip Off,” which first appeared in Archie 431 (January 1995). It’s a very funny one, written by the great Frank Doyle, where some of the gang gets upset after misunderstanding what an aglet is. Betty, who can always think for herself, wants to check on the meaning.

In the next panel she says, “I think I’ll pop into the library and check it out in the big dictionary!”

“The Tip Off” was pencilled by Stan Goldberg, inked by Henry Scarpelli, lettered by Bill Yoshida and coloured by Barry Grossman. I read it in Archie (Jumbo Comics) Double Digest 293 (December 2018). It is copyright Archie Comic Publications.
