“…And, holy spit, his costume’s amazing!”

Recently acquired a boatload of ’60s and ’70s Archies, including this, which may have my favorite Jughead cover of all time:

“Most horrifying costume,” eh? Wonder what they would have made of this Jughead costume, just a mere 50+ years later:

    I wonder if “What, Me Win?” is an intentional MAD reference? (“What, Me Worry?”)

  • Bully says:

    I love the covers Archie was putting out during that period, all of which had a monster or a space alien of some sort, across the entire line of comics. What was up with that?

    “What was up with that”

    Marketability! Was that possibly the same time the Munsters and the Addams Family were on TV?
