- Full Description
First in a three-part series, with Silver and Bronze Age volumes to follow. In 1941, Pep Comics introduced Archie Andrews, "America's newest boyfriend." Since then, Archie and his perennial teenage friends have entertained young and old alike. Journey to a bygone era and unearth the roots of an American institution, and the wonderful, well-polished work from the 1950s, with outstanding work by our favorite Archie (and Betty and Veronica) artist, Dan DeCarlo.
Each decade has its own introduction by Paul Castiglia, who talks about how Archie and the crew kept in step with the times, as social institutions, hair and dress styles, cars and soda shops were changing with the times.
The frantic forties and fifties -- a time when the comic book industry was young and anything was possible. Stories from this Golden Age of comics had an "anything goes" quality -- perhaps none more so than the freewheeling antics of Archie Andrews and his friends.
