The First Appearance of ARCHIE and JUGHEAD (1941)

Mr. Mike Britt recently directed me to some interesting finds on comicbookplus, and one of them was the second appearance of Archie, in Jackpot Comics #4. That got me curious about Archie's first appearance, so I looked up this issue of Pep Comics #22, from December 1941. Gotta say, I like Bob Montana's vision of the character, who seems to be inspired by Li'l Abner, way better than the bland stuff that followed.

Fun, but I like the Archie that came later. I see the name Chick didn't even last through the entire story, for which I'm glad. And I think he looks like Alfred E. Newman.
