ARCHIE COVER GALLERY...
I never really read ARCHIE comics (apart from when he teamed-up
with the PUNISHER), but I was aware of them. A goodly number of years
back, there was a bunch of them on sale in my local FORBIDDEN PLANET
so I bought 'em, mainly because they reminded me of an earlier era. Still haven't
read 'em of course, but maybe one day I'll get around to it. Archie first appeared
in PEP COMICS in 1941, published by MLJ. There seems to be contention as
to who created him, some sources claiming it was publisher JOHN L. GOLD-
WATER and others that it was BOB MONTANA, although perhaps they
were co-creators in the best STAN LEE/JACK KIRBY tradition.
Anyway, I thought you might enjoy seeing some examples of when
comicbooks were actually comic-books, so feast your eyes on these
colourful covers, o dedicated seekers after truth.
