im sure every normal (urban?) teenager would have read Archie Comics when they were kids/teenagers..
The best thing to do when you had nothing else to do was to curl up in bed and pick up an Archie Double Digest and read about the wacky adventures of Archie.betty,Veronica,Reggie,Moose Jughead etc..
Ive lost count of the number of Archie digests that ive read.. Jughead Jones is my fav character cuz he so laid back and likes to eat eat and eat (kinda like me)
and who can forget the eternal love triangle that is Archie/Veronica/Betty.. im sure all of us liked Betty the most!
nowadays i hardly read Archie although if go to someone’s house and see an Archie mag lying around i alwys pick it up and read it…
the content and stories in the Archie comix would usually match the season they were published in.. so if it was summer we would see lots of stories involving the beach etc.. used to love these issues.. Betty and Veronica were the first swimsuit models i adored… =)
EDIT: and of course the Archie comics sometimes had L’il Jil/Sabrina/Josie and the Pussycats thrown in occasionally….
I should have preserved all the old Archie comics for my kids to read… now i will have to go to some must old bookstore or library to hunt for them.. (which is actuallly something i love.. hunting around for books in 5 foot high shelves in some tiny bookstore smelling of centuries old paper =).. those who have been there will know what i mean…)
here is the official Archie site
and the on one Wikipedia
