    Archie Comics #1 (Archie, 1942) CGC Apparent VG/FN 5.0 Slight (B-1) Off-white to white pages. We have only offered three higher-graded copies, regardless of restoration, ever! A true cultural phenomenon, this iconic character came into public consciousness in late 1941, first appearing in Pep Comics #22, and within a year won his own title, which still continues today. Archie and his gang have been a part of America's youth for four generations now, and all indications point to his success far into the future. Very nice page quality on this Slightly restored copy of Archie's first solo outing. It's the first appearance of Mrs. Andrews, Archie's pop. Bob Montana provided the classic ice skating cover and interior art. Currently the issue is tied for #15 position on Overstreet's list of Top 100 Golden Age Comics. CGC notes, "Restoration includes: ." Overstreet 2017 GD 2.0 value = $12,000; VG 4.0 value = $24,000.
