  • DeCarlo Rules: Two new bonus SAM HILL stories appear in B & V Friends Jumbo Comics Digest 276 and Betty and Veronica Jumbo Comics Digest 279... in addition to the regular new 5-page lead stories. That was a nice surprise -- Sam's still wearing the red bow tie he wore in 1950s stories.

  • Fernando Ruiz: I don't know where the idea originated for the "Archie meets Archie" story. I know one day Victor Gorelick gave me the assignment to write a story where the current Archie meets the first appearance Archie. It was going to be for a digest celebrating whatever anniversary they were celebrating. That.

  • Mr.Lodge: The first batch of "Memory Lane" stories were the best but were never given the chance to "conclude" properly. The 10th Anniversary one are total crap.....
    November 16, 2019, 06:10:50 pm
  • Tuxedo Mark: @Fernando Ruiz I never heard that before! Good to know! :)
    November 16, 2019, 06:08:57 pm
  • DeCarlo Rules: Nice to establish that. I forgot about that Twilight Zone episode! But of course, the phrase "a stroll down Memory Lane" is a familiar euphemism, so TZ took that as a literal plot device. The Memory Lane stories were the beginning of a fertile period for ACP, idea-wise.
    November 16, 2019, 05:05:30 am
  • Fernando Ruiz: Responding to the comments for the "When Archie Meets Archie" review, the idea for "Memory Lane" was mine. I borrowed it from an old Twilight Zone episode and thought it was a nice convenient device for the story.

Excluding Archie and any of the Riverdale Gang, who are your favorite MLJ/Archie Comics characters from the 40s, 50s, and/or 60s?


I've added fifteen of my favorite choices here, but encourage you to add your own choices here in the comments!

DeCarlo Rules

Out of the fifteen you listed, you kind of made it easy for me by only including a couple that would have been contenders, like Cosmo and Ginger, so I picked the Hangman (good thing you didn't list any of the 30 or so other superheroes, or it would have been a lot tougher for me to pick just one).

The real answer would probably have been Sabrina, though. Melody and Pepper would probably have tied for second place. Though the first two have obviously appeared in stories with Archie and the gang, none of those characters can be considered spinoffs or supporting characters from ARCHIE, any more than Wilbur, Ginger, Suzie or Katie Keene (who have also all appeared in Archie stories). In fact, if you consider "Night at the Comic Shop", then MOST of those characters have appeared in an Archie story at one time or another, except for The Twiddles (whoever they are). I assume that Sabrina (1962) and characters from JOSIE (1963) are just as fair game as characters like Cosmo (1958) or Young Dr. Masters (1964), since they were first published in the same time period.

Is there a cutoff date for these characters, or can it be just any non-Archie character like JINX (2010)?
