    Bob White Life with Archie #45 Cover "The Man From R.I.V.E.R.D.A.L.E." Original Art (Archie, 1966). "The Man From R.I.V.E.R.D.A.L.E." made his very first appearance on this very cover! It was the mid-1960s, and there were three major fads running through pop-culture: Madcap Rock Bands (the Beatles, the Monkees), Super-Heroes (fueled by Marvel and DC's Batman TV show), and Spys (The Man From U.N.C.L.E., and James Bond chief among them). Archie Comics jumped on all three bandwagons at pretty much the same time. This was the beginning of thier foray into Spy Spoofery. Betty would go on to become "The Girl from R.I.V.E.R.D.A.L.E." This cover was created in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 14.25" x 16". The board has been trimmed to almost the image area. All lettering is hand-lettered, with some hand-lettered paste-up text corrections. Some paste-ups are missing, leaving glue residue behind. In Very G.O.O.D. condition.
