2nd app. Archie? (published same month as Pep #22); scarce! 1st Mrs. Grundy; Classic Steel Sterling headshot splash; headlights cvr
Having garnered success with the teen funnies market with Wilbur, Bob Montana once again struck pay dirt with Archie, soon to become a household name and one of the most recognizable of American icons. At this point, however, he was just a clumsy, awkward, lovable (and love-struck) teen, with his cast of characters slowly but surely building one by one. This early appearance features the debut of Mrs. Grundy, another instantly relatable character meant to evoke nostalgic pangs from readers toiling away in their own small-town schoolrooms under the watchful eye of disapproving matronly instructors. This issue is also notable for featuring the second appearnce of Archie Andrews, which was published right after his first appearance in Pep #22.
Having been released the same month as Pep #22 (Archie's first appearance anywhere) Jackpot Comics #4 is a secret key comic and tends to fly under the radar. Here's your chance to get a hold of a great Golden Age comic before the market realizes just how important this book really is!
