Looks a whole lot like the splash to Archie 1...

You should count the pages, but the page shown is the first wrap. Pages 1 and 2 are the cover. There should be 60 pages without the cover.

Nice find!,

This may be a longshot, but does anyone recognize what issue this is? Missing the cover and 1st wrap. I rescued it from a dollar box this past weekend...

It most definitely is the splash to Archie #1. That's an amazing pickup and just goes to show that stuff is still out there. Excellent! (thumbsu

 

Here's the first couple pages of the reprinted edition for proof:

I did a count. it's missing a few wraps towards the middle, but thanks for pointing out the splash. I just saw that 3 on the page and assumed that wasn't the first page page.

The Grand Comic Book Database is your friend! Sure you can figure it out there.

The guys (and gals) in this thread are my friends, robot! Take your talk of databases and widgets and the matrix somewhere else!

Always loved this cover. Just noticed that the demon is holding hypos… Wonder what he was planning to do with them if the swinging blade was gonna kill the babe at the stroke of midnight anyway. Oh unless they are meant for the protagonist...

Now that's what I call a classic GA book!!  And a hard to find one too.  Your copy looks much nicer than a 5.5 btw.

Gino, sorry for not chiming in sooner. Nice grab! I was hoping to pick up the 3.0 on Heritage last night, but passed out before the auction ended.
