    Description

    Victor Gorelick - Archie Sketch Original Art (1981). Victor Gorelick presents America's favorite redheaded teenager, Archie! Star of comic books, newspaper strips, radio, animated cartoons, even the pop music charts (the unforgettable "Sugar, Sugar", from 1969), Archie and his pals have been favorites of both young and old alike since their debut in 1941. Victor Gorelick, one of the talented creators behind the antics of the Riverdale bunch, joined Archie Publications as an art assistant, eventually becoming the Editorial Vice-President of the company. This charming colored marker on paper portrait, by one of Archies "parents", has an image area of 14" x 17", and is in Excellent condition. From the collection of Richard and Wendy Pini. Richard says: "We met Victor Gorelick at one of Phil Seuling's legendary year-end holiday parties, and there discovered that his daughter was a big fan of Elfquest! As we'd been fans of Archie forever as well, naturally there ensued the time-honored tradition among comics professionals known as 'sketch trading'!"
