    Description

    Harry Lucey Archie's Pals 'n' Gals #23 Splash Page Original Art (Archie Comics, 1962). Reggie Mantle, rival to Archie Andrews, looks especially vain and arrogant in this striking page. The dominant figure is the Avanti coupe, a high-end Studebaker sport model -- 'way out of Reggie's class. Turns out that Reggie is using a borrowed car to impress Veronica Lodge, to Archie's chagrin. The situation may represent a response to a controversial Archie parody published earlier in 1962 in Harvey Kurtzman's Help! magazine, in which a Reggie-like character steals a snazzy Lancia GT 2500. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 12" x 17.5". Very faint toning. Adhesive on logotype is partially peeled but intact. Excellent condition.
