IDW's excellent collection of Archie anthologies continues with "The Best of Dan DeCarlo Volume 3". Collected from the late 50s and 60s, these represent DeCarlo at his artistic peak. The emphasis is on Betty and Veronica, but the other members of the Archie cast and Josie appear in these pages as well.

The stories, mostly written by Frank Doyle, are entertaining, often hilarious and still stand up well after almost 50 years. Also included are pin-ups, a gallery of gag pages and covers from DeCarlo's later work at Archie.

These stories are classics of humor comics and I highly recommend this volume.

Volumes 1 and 2 were both very good books. Volume 3? Another winner.

This book is very heavy on Betty (as it should be!) and Veronica. Finally, Josie makes her first appearance in one of these volumes. And the book includes more pin-ups and a few pages of half-page shorts.

The art is, of course, stellar. Again, the colors shine on the glossy paper. And DeCarlo's style, as always, it brilliant. But proper due should also be given to Frank Doyle, who authored much of the Archie work that DeCarlo drew. His writing, now a half-century old, has stood the test of time and still reads great now, all these years later.

DeCarlo and Doyle. How can you go wrong?

I have a daughter who loves Archie comics, and have been buying her these books as gifts as they've become available. They make for a nice collection, and are well made, and fun for me to look back on nostalgically as well:)

Wonderful stories and art of Dan DeCarlo. The colors are bright and vivid. Another blast from Archie's past. It beats hands down any stories The Archie Company has put out in recent years.

Good Archie material, but a little thin for the $16 price I paid. Better off getting paperback for $11 with more stories. Still, great material and good artwork.
