    Description

    Bill Vigoda Jughead #126 Cover Original Art (Archie Comics, 1965). Jughead Jones does his bit for the skateboarding craze. The fringe sport had moved nearer general acceptance when Jan Berry and Dean Torrance transformed the Beach Boys' "Catch a Wave" (1963) into "Sidewalk Surfin'," an American Bandstand sensation of 1964. By the time this Archie-spinoff piece appeared, a National Skateboard Championships Association had organized to stage the first such formal event. Vigoda, attuned to the vibe, takes the fad to an extreme by working in several other tests of dexterity. Looks like Jughead is about to "bust his buns," to paraphrase the Jan & Dean lyric. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 14" x 13.5". Upper logotype area is absent. Moderate toning and speckled stain-spotting. Very Good condition.
