This book has some flaws. Some little flaws. However, they are not enough to stop me from giving it a full 5-stars.

Why?

This material has been begging to be reprinted for years. The stories within are the earliest and rarest of Archie stories and having them reprinted in a hardcover, deluxe format is a wonderful gift to us collectors. These stories are probably in the deep past for most Archie readers as the characters look slightly different and these come from the 1940's. Most "older" Archie readers are actually 50's to 70's readers. These would then fall into the realm of the "ancient" Archie readers memories (no offense to any 80-90 year old readers here :)

These stories are a great glimpse into the older Archie comics as well as the pop culture of the time - so it's all good.

What were the negatives I mentioned. Minor to be sure, but worth mentioning for purists.

There needs to be more of a front/end piece essays and such. It would be nice to have a modern perspective on the impact and history of the company and characters to accompany these reprint volumes.
I would like better editorial direction on which stories came from which issues with some notes, cover art, etc.

If this was more modern material or material that was accessible via other means, the above comments would rate this book 4/5 stars. However, the sheer rarity of getting access to these stories elevates this to 5/5 stars.

If you like the "old" Archive, you will really like this series.
This book reprints "Pep" "Jackpot Comics" and "Archie Comics" from 1943-1944.
Also this is a great book for the price. The list price is $49.99.

The World War Two home front, vividly expressed by Archie and the gang, in the continuation of the Dark Horse archive series. Once again, I thank Amazon for offering these at substantial discount. Delivery was prompt and on time. I will order more in near future! These are excellent compilations!

These old Archies are very different from the Archie Comics you might be more familiar with.
These are more akin to the Andy Hardy Movies or It's A Wonderful Life in terms of content. Early to mid forties stories, not always politically correct but an interesting look at Americana.

A trip back in time to when Archie wasn't afraid of broad humor and slpastick. Liked the service as well.
