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 a local Glasgow comicbook store 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. GOLDWATER 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.
