Archie: The Swingin’ Sixties: Complete Daily Newspaper Comics: 1963-1965

Bob Montana (w & a & c)

Continuing the 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. 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.”
