Description

Long before Archie Andrews had to
finally choose between Betty and Veronica, cartoonist Bob Montana guided Archie
and his gang into a series of outlandish antics and gags on a daily basis for
nearly 30 years. Starting with these very first strips from 1946-1948, Montana's
brilliant storytelling and animated flair for humor comes to life in strips that
have never been reprinted previously. Fans can now marvel at the laughable love
triangle, sexy women, bumbling sidekicks, and overbearing educators, and
rediscover, or discover for the first time, the genius of Bob Montana in this
Eisner Award-winning collection.

About Bob Montana

Bob Montana was born into a showbiz family. His father, Ray, was a banjo player on the Keith vaudeville circuit and his mother, the former Roberta Pandolfini, was a Ziegfeld dancer. As a young boy, the future cartoonist and his sister would sometimes put on their dancing shoes and join their dad in his finale. It wasn't as a hoofer, however, that brought fame to Bob Montana--it was his talent at the drawing board. He drew inspiration from the facts, fantasy, feelings, and fun of his own high school days in Haverhill, Massachusetts to bring to life the Archie characters originally conceived by John L. Goldwater.
