'The Blackest (and Bluest) Day!'
In the annals of Archie Comics history, it doesn't get more explosive than this, the return of the Man From R.I.V.E.R.D.A.L.E., the return of writer Tom DeFalco, and the unveiling of a character kept under wraps for decades! Evil spy ring C.R.U.S.H. is out to obtain Formula Z, but first they must get past the defenses of the Man from R.I.V.E.R.D.A.L.E. as he vigorously guards the secret formula! Fortunately for C.R.U.S.H., the Man from R.I.V.E.R.D.A.L.E. is none other than Archie Andrews, and he's as girl crazy as ever! C.R.U.S.H. dispatches the beautiful Sharry the Spy Girl, who is determined to use all of her feminine wiles to obtain that formula! Can Archie resist the paralyzing pull of pulchritude or will he lose the formula to crafty C.R.U.S.H.? Add to this Andy Andrews, star of a never-published tale of intrigue from the 1950s wherein the intrepid foreign correspondent went undercover behind the Iron Curtain!
