    Description

    Dan DeCarlo and Rudy Lapick Archie's Girls Betty and Veronica #138 Complete 1-Page Story "Betty Pin-Up" Original Art (Archie Comics, 1967). Betty Cooper reveals a calculating strategic intelligence in this between-the-acts exchange -- considerably more than a "filler" or backup piece. Such interstitials usually served to advance or develop the series' key characters while providing breathing room before and/or after the longer stories. This one is particularly effective at that task, and the image itself must rank as one of DeCarlo's most expressive in a long involvement with the Archie line. An exquisitely balanced composition, with every square inch given over to necessary visual and environmental information. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 10" x 15". Light toning. Excellent condition.
