Okay. THIS one is the one I’m really displeased with. I’ve enjoyed Archie comics since I was a kid, but for a long, long time now, I’ve felt the art (well, okay – the writing, occasionally, too) was just hack work, and could be so much better. “Come on,” I’d say, “ANYONE can draw Archies!” As I’ve shown here, that’s not really true…

One noteworthy exception is the brilliant work done by Giselle Lagace on Archie 635 & 636. THAT’S how Archies should be drawn.

And no, none of my three basses is a blonde Rickenbacker 4003, but I hope #4 will be!
