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 appearance of Archie Andrews, which was published right after his first appearance in Pep #22.
It is always a pleasure to see a Golden Age classic preserved in such great condition, with bright colors blazing from the cover, a rigid spine, and sturdy construction, this is one handsome comic, and there are only two copies ranked higher on the census. Archie has been a stalwart success throughout the history of comics, and, thanks to TV shows like “Riverdale” his presence is as strong as ever, making this book a great investment option.

Overstreet Guide 2020 VF- (7.5) value = $19,575.
