Archie: The Swingin’ Sixties, Vol. 1: 1960-1963
by Bob Montana
Continuing our Eisner Award-winning series, we jump ahead to the 1960 dailies, when Bob Montana hits his stride. As the country entered what would become the Swingin’ Sixties, Montana entered his 14th year writing and drawing the series. The amazing cast is well established: Archie, Jughead, Betty, Veronica, Fred and Mary Andrews (Archie’s mom and pop), Reggie, the Lodges…and at school, Principal Weatherbee, Miss Grundy, Mr. Flutesnoot, Miss Shapely, Miss Beazly the cafeteria cook, Svensen “de Yanitor,” and Coach Kleats. Includes 800 comics from September 1960—when the school year begins—to spring vacation in April 1963.
