    Description

    Bob Montana Archie Comics #1 "The Case of the Missing Mistletoe!" Page 4 Original Art (MLJ/Archie, 1942). Archie's date for the Christmas party happens to have a twin sister, and our hero has his usual share of mix-ups trying to tell them apart, in this historic page from the very first issue of Archie Comics. Archie and his gang (we believe the crowd in panel three includes Betty, Veronica, and Reggie) look like pretty typical 1942 teenagers here, courtesy of artist Bob Montana, who would go on to have a long career drawing the "Riverdale Romeo" and his friends for many years to come. The art is in ink and graphite on Bristol board, with an approximate image area of 13" x 18"; the page has considerable soiling along the outer border areas, but is in overall Very Good condition.
