OK, now that I've figured out (more or less) how to post pictures to the boards, I thought it would be nice to have an Archie cover forum listing. I will start it off with two Archie firsts: Pep 36 (the first Archie cover) and Archie #1. Most of my favorite Archie covers are from the Silver Age however, so there will be some of those showing up too. I would really be interested in seeing what other collectors feel are their favorite covers so please post some pictures for us all to admire. Thanks!

Those are awesome books! Just awesome.

 

I've got some early Pep's including a 22, but I don't keep them at my place. I've been looking for an Archie 1, and Pep 36... those two copies you've got are SWEET! 893applaud-thumb.gif

 

Not a favourite cover, but I like Jughead and I had this scan readily available.

 

Pretty much anything to do with Jughead on the cover is bound to be funny! 27_laughing.gif

Jughead's always been my favorite Archie character. Well, him and Cricket O'Dell, but no one's ever heard of her.

Don't have a scan of one, but I've always considered Archie's Pals 'n Gals #1 to be one of the classic Archie covers of all time. Beautiful cover showing the love triangle between Archie, Veronica, and Betty in solid bold red and blue colours.

 

Also consider this to be one of the more undervalued Archies since it is an #1 issue from the early 50's which is extremely tough to find in grade. Squarebound 120 page book which is still valued at only $850 in the OS guide.

 

Anybody have a copy which they can scan in for me.
