    Bob Montana Pep Comics #30 "The Escort Agency" Page 5 Archie Andrews Original Art (MLJ/Archie Comics, 1942). Archie needs cash so he starts an escort service. His first customer... Miss Grundy! This is actually her first definitive appearance and their first on-panel meeting. There was a "Mrs. Grundy, the Principal" in Jackpot Comics #4, but that is largely regarded as a prototype of the school-teacher version. Early Bob Montana art is hard to find and this pre-dates Archie #1 by several months. Produced in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 13" x 18.5". It is nicely matted next to the published page in a 27" x 25.5" Plexiglas front frame. Very slight tanning and some whiteout art correction; however, in remarkably Excellent condition.
