To see the original drawings of Archie and gang and see the evolution of them is soOOL
You really have to hand it to the people at the company that was once MLJ Comics During the Golden Age super hero boom, when every comic book publisher was trying to create Supermen and Batmen, someone there said, Let s do something different Teenagers getting into trouble may not sound like it should hold its own against super powers in colorful garb, but it did and still does Collected here are some real comedy gems from that era There are a lot of dated references here, but the interaction a [...]
I love old school comics, and Archie is one of my favorites This collection has fantastic color artwork and entertaining storylines, that are, as the title suggests, a slice of Americana as it was in the 1940s It is interesting to see the way each charecter was dressed and styled, though Jughead pretty much stays the same I ve been trying to find installments of this collection I also have Vol 1 of the 1950s but finding compilations of nonanime comics or nonmanga comics is becoming increasingly [...]
The Archie Americana series is a good series for examining how the Archie series has changed over the decades, and it provides a window into American pop culture across the decades This volume features stories from the 40s Many of the stories featured here are origin stories, so you ll get to see many Archie characters introduced for the first time The writing is hit or miss since the comedy is a bit dated, but it s also interesting to see how the writing has changed over the decades.
I certainly was not expecting the early Archie comics to have so many gags about suicide and murder There s nothing genuinely subversive or sophisticated in here, but occasionally genuinely funny moments come through the classic Archie insipidity.
Oh, Archie Andrews, I love you.
it was a very funny edition as usual
Maybe I would have liked it better if I was part of the target audience The stories are really simple and pretty dated The jokes only occasionally work.
It s amazing how the drawings of Archie, Betty, and Veronica looked so different before Funny as always
A really fun book featuring some of the earliest Archie comics.
