Archie's Pal Jughead Archives Volume One Review

   There are dramatic changes depending on the style such as Archie's Pal Jughead #2's cover having a shrunken bucktoothed Archie. Even within Archie's Pal Jughead #1 there are obvious style differences. For example page 30 shows Soupy and Jughead in one style and a woman in various styles. There are bits of slang no one probably ever spouted even back in the original publication period. Some of the proto-versions of characters, such as Midge and Moose, do not resemble their current incarnations. However all of these things are great for the historian comic book readers. Especially interesting is the well written introduction by Colleen Coover that points out these kind of past differences.

   I recommend this collection of classic stories for the die-hard fans, historians, scholars, students of art. Though I think one should be careful if buying this edition for modern children, because you might end up having to explain certain things to them.
