Archie comics are the shit, I still have mine from when I was a kid.
They can be found at pawn shops and stuff now for a few dollars, but to have them kicking around from the early 70's is cool as well
I still have my Archie comments from when I was a kid. I remember laying on a blanket in the grass in the sunshine reading these. Such happy memories! I loved the storyline of these comics.
I LOVED Archie comics as a kid. I would always get them from the checkout line in the grocery store, or while I was camping at our summer house. Each one has a different story and they are just fun.
As a kid I could never put these down....I had such a huge collection and like a lot of people always wanted Betty & Archie to be together. I use to have a stack of these right by my bedside. Now my daughter seems to be into them. I must add though the price sure did go up though. But still always worth a good read.
I'm 48 and I still have my big collection of Archie comics from my youth. I spent endless summer days reading these over and over. I also have all of the digests. I'm thrilled that they are reissuing a lot of oldies online for Kindle.
I first started reading Archie comics when I was in the hospital for a few months at age 14. My parents would bring me some reading material to keep me occupied, or they would take me to the gift shop to buy something. I bought a Betty & Veronica double digest and became an instant fan.
There's a reason why these comics have endured for as long as they have. The stories are charming and innocent, suitable for all ages. The characters are bright and colourfully drawn. They offer so many different comics, from Archie to Jughead, Betty & Veronica and more. They also have different timelines where Archie marries Betty and another where he marries Veronica. There's even a more mature horror series where the gang battles zombies! There really is something for everyone, regardless of age or gender.
I do feel that these are a bit pricey for the size. You can read these pretty quickly, so paying between $3-5 is a bit much for something so small. The good news is, I have found that most used bookstores will accept them, so if you're the type to only read your Archie comics once and then you're done, you should try selling them thete!
I have always been such an Archie comic fan!!! I read these all the time when I was younger, and I still buy them every once in awhile just to be nostalgic! I always liked the battles between Veronica and Betty- the Rich girl vs the girl next door, both crushing on Archie.. I never know who I liked better!! All the other characters- Jughead, Moose, Reggie, etc just make it that much more fun to read!
Why have they not come out with an Archie "remake" movie yet? maybe it's just as well...
J'aime vraiment beaucoup ces petits livres.À chaque fois que mon père allait se faire couper les cheveux , pendant que je l'attendais ,je lisais ces livres et ça me divertissait vraiment.
I loved Archie comics as a kid, and I just recently discovered a 1000 page anniversary edition Archie comic book at Costco. I enjoyed it very much! The illustrations are bright and fun, and the stories are light and easy to read. It's a cute comic about a group of high school kids, in the 1950s (I think).
Although I don't read them anymore, these were a huge part of my life as a kid and teen. I really loved the art style and stories that archie had and watched the show as well. A great comic.
