About the Author

Bob Bolling is an American comic artist and writer best known for his work in Archie Comics. Bolling did several Little Archie spinoffs, including Little Archie in Animal Land, a four-issue series that mixed humor with educational stories about animals and the natural world, a one-shot comic starring Ambrose, and two issues of Little Archie Mystery Comics. Bolling's Little Archie stories were usually longer than the typical Archie story, and incorporated a much wider range of material and approaches, ranging from light comedy to adventure to science fiction to tearjerking sentimentality. He would also change the designs of the characters depending on the nature of the story: in his adventure stories, the adults are usually drawn in a realistic style to contrast with the cartoony style of Little Archie and his friends. His stories are also notable for their lush backgrounds and specific references to the geography of Riverdale. His own favorite story is "The Long Walk" where Betty's attempt to walk home with Little Archie is told with a mix of comedy and sentiment; one entire page is devoted to a giant map charting everything that happens on their walk home, and the story uses a fantasy framing device where Betty's toys come to life and discuss her situation.

As a lifelong fan of Bob Bolling, I was so eager to see the second volume of Little Archie tales. My excitement turned to absolute revulsion when I saw that all of the stories reprinted here are from the 70s and 80s, and not from Bolling's heyday in the early 60s, and the majority of what was reprinted is not even Bolling.
If you've only seen this volume, please don't get the idea that Little Archie was this lame and worthless; get Volume 1, and see Bob Bolling's wonderful stories and artwork. His work was magic.
All of Bolling's 1960s Little Archie adventure stories deserve to be reprinted and made available to today's kids (not to mention we adults who loved them), but if this is any indication, we're instead in for the later lame, insipid stories with awkward and substandard artwork.
To us fans, this is an absolute betrayal, a monstrous disaster, and a complete waste of paper and money. What clueless idiot thought there was any need for this?
They even reduced it in size, so it doesn't even match the first volume next to it on your bookshelf.
Someone needs to be fired for assembling this piece of junk. I want my money back!

I am a longtime fan of Archie Comics, and while the "Little" Archie series is not as popular as his elder counterpart, I do not enjoy their stories any less. This 2nd-in-line "best-of" stories incorporates a relatively new Bob Bolling (!) story, and older stories by Bolling and Dexter Taylor. The real problem with this release is the stories and artwork. The stories are OK, but I remember many, many, many better stories reading them from the sixties into the eighties. These stories are OK, but not great. The artwork is shabby - again, it's OK, but looks simply "blown-up" from the original artwork (or books?). The quality just isn't there. Also, this release is just too short. Probably not even 100 pages. I hope future releases are longer, and are of better quality stories and artwork.

My kids love it an I love it. Yes, it isn't the same size as Volume 1. Yes, these are newer stories. It is still fun. Archie Comics Publications, Inc DOES need to re-release all of the original Little Archie comics as eBooks like they've been doing for most of their other titles. This would satisfy most of us. Real collectors can get the originals, I want to READ the originals and I want my kids to read the originals. I'd gladly break my bank account on buying all of the Little Archie comics in eBook format. There are 100s of Bob Bolling Little Archie stories that need to be read by millions of comics lovers. PLEASE do this, Archie Comics Publications, Inc.
