We live by a couple of rules here at Karswell Kastle, and one of them is simply this: Everyday is Halloween! Those that follow my other blog know this to be true, and the same goes for here as well, as today we find Little Archie and the gang running into some real honest to goodness All Hallows Eve horror-- plus, some fun 'n games to keep you all extra entertained, from the December 1976 issue of Little Archie #113. And speaking of my other blog, don't miss another story from this issue posted over there last week-- just click HERE after you read The Haunted House on Halloween Hill!
I really love this submitted drawing of Jughead by 8 year old Lark Jarvis too!
OK, there's got to be something behind the mad scientist/cartoonist thing. I can't tell if it's gentle nudging or somebody had it out for somebody else.
More fun art, and it's your ol' mistaken identity monster story. I think the Mummy story was superior. I have to say I don't think dressing up as "a tramp" is going to fly anymore!
I wonder if some pages got cut? Notice Betty and Veronica have the same costume and the way they are introduced looks like the setup to a joke, yet it never pays off. Either they scripted it up and just forgot it or something got cut.
Madness (I mean that in the best way)!
Having no memory of Little Archie, I hit the internets and found that, like Regular Archie, he formed a band though, sadly, they never had an LP.
Thanks Mestiere, I know very little about Archie comics and that fills in that gap!
I liked the Cinderella aspect of this story. As far as any Prince Charming would know or care, that principal has been unequivocally proven, by official fairy tale forensic procedure, to be the very same monster who ran away from the party earlier in the evening. That's as good as a marriage license back then.
I wish Little Archie had worn that maskless skeleton catsuit in the story, too. "I was a Pre-Teenage X-ray!" Man, what a great costume!
Add my kudos to Brian's, Mestiere, as Archie (or his pals) never launched my canoe, but I'm interested in their history.
I loved Little Archie when I was a kid, more so than the regular Archie titles. And I really loved the Halloween issues. I have one from another year around here somewhere. I need to dig it up.
Omg that pic of Jughead and his hamburger thought is so awesome!
