Where can you get over 400 pages of all ages fun… again for under 10 bucks (12 Loonies in Canada)?
“This is the ultimate comic book collection,” tells Matman! “In one very affordable collection, you get a look at not only comic history, but American history as well. As America changed, so did Archie.”
The collection starts off with Archie’s first appearance in Pep # 22 (1941) by Vic Bloom and Montana, continues into the ‘love triangle years’ and winds down with the marriage of Archie! The book also contains histories of each decade and comments from Archie creators and staff like Secret Identity friends Tania Del Rio, Dan Parent and Mike Pelleritto. It also contains thoughts by Joe Kubert, Stan Lee and Gene Simmons… yes the blood splitting dude!
“This is a great way to discover Archie or help celebrate their impact on comics and pop culture,” added Matman. “I don’t mean to harp on the price, but ten bucks for 400 pages? This book is an incredible value and contains no filler at all. Every story stands on its own and helps to drive the legacy started so long ago!”
In the All New Secret Identity Podcast # 8 (available next week) Matman and Brian will discuss ‘The Best Of Archie Comics’ in more detail. But until then, run don’t walk to your local comic shop, on line comic retailer or go to www.archiecomics.com and get a copy!
