    Description

    Archie's Joke Book Magazine #40 Story Page 2 Original Art (Archie Comics, 1959). Many enthusiasts like Jughead Jones best of all the Archie characters. The books' resident goofball cynic commandeered two pages of Joke Book #40 to present "Jughead's Mother Good Up-to-Date," of which this closing page puts a smart-aleck spin on six classic nursery rhymes. The unbilled artist gives Lewis Carroll's Humpty Dumpty a face like comedian W.C. Fields. Featured Archie characters include Miss Grundy the schoolteacher, Betty Cooper, Dilton Doily, and Jughead his ownself. Briskly brushed ink on Bristol board. Image area, 12" x 17.5". Mildly toned and in Excellent condition.
