Archie’s Sunday Finest Hits Shelves Tomorrow

Archie’s Sunday Finest Hits Shelves Tomorrow

Collecting Bob Montana’s 1940s and early 1950s Sunday strips

[Archie's Sunday Finest Cover]San Diego, CA (May 8, 2012) – IDW Publishing is pleased to announce the launch of ARCHIE’S SUNDAY FINEST, available in comic book stores this Wednesday. This hardcover collection features full-color Archie Sunday strips, presenting classic Archie themes and characters by cartoonist Bob Montana.

“We are thrilled to continue the Eisner award-winning series with the all new Archie’s Sunday Finest,” said Greg Goldstein, IDW President and COO. “This oversize volume will allow fans to see Montana’s brilliance for themselves with these never before reprinted strips. ”

Archie Andrews and the gang are such universal characters that one may not even think of them as having been created by anyone in particular, much less having been drawn from life. But of course, they were. Originally springing from the imagination of Archie Comics co-founder John L. Goldwater, and fleshed out by the supremely-talented Montana, Archie and his friends – Jughead, Betty and Veronica, and Reggie remain pop culture icons to this day.

In these rarely seen Sunday newspaper comics from the late 1940s and early 1950s—including the very first Archie strips—Montana draws on the facts, fantasy, feelings, and fun of his own high school days in Haverhill, Massachusetts to build upon the legendary characters created by Goldwater.

This Sundays-only collection continues the Eisner Award-winning series from IDW’s Library of American Comics in an oversized 10″ x 13″ format. Edited and designed by Dean Mullaney with an introduction by David Allen.

ARCHIE’S SUNDAY FINEST ($49.99, 160 pages, hard cover, full color) will be available in comic book stores May 9, 2012. Diamond order code JAN120480; ISBN 978-1-61377-152-5.
