    Description

    Bob Bolling Little Archie Giant Comics: "Bubble Gum Blues" Partial Story Original Art Group of 7 (Archie Comics, 1958). A masterstroke for the Archie line was the development of a kid-stuff version of the long-running teenage series. Timed to cash in on the TV popularity of Hal Roach's Little Rascals films (and to complete with Dell's Little Rascals comics), the Little Archie tales boast slapstick galore, with junior versions of Archie Andrews, Jughead Jones, and the rest of the gang, and a sense of community that suggests the beginnings of a comprehensive Archie Universe. This bright story gives Bolling's buoyant artwork a grand showcase, with a boys-vs.-girls storyline that reflects the influence of John Stanley's concurrent Little Lulu books. The grouping covers Pages 1-7 of a 10-pager. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 12" x 18". Moderate toning, missing splash-page logo, and scattered staining. Very Good condition.
