Description

Continuing our Eisner Award-winning series collecting the Archie newspaper strip, we reach the mid-1960s when the now-famous cast of Archie, Jughead, Betty, Veronica, and Reggie are part of a rich ensemble presented by cartoonist Bob Montana. In addition to Fred and Mary Andrews (Archie's mom and pop) and Veronica's father, Mr. Lodge, Montana weaves gags around the entire staff of Riverdale High, including Mr. Weatherbee, Miss Grundy, Mr. Flutesnoot, Miss Shapely, and Miss Beazly, among others. As Bart Beaty notes, "The strip is not so much about Archie as it is about the interaction of all those characters who exist in his orbit. The relatively large cast is particularly suited to the gag-a-day format." Includes more than 800 comics from April 1963 through the end of 1965.

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.
