I am glad, then, that IDW is doing such a loving, respectful, professional job with this book. The strips are beautifully presented. More importantly, they stand up beyond their historical importance. Yeah, some of the '40's slang is hard to fathom, but context helps.
I hope that this book will help reinvigorate Archie comics, and help spread the word that comics can (and should) be...comic.
of putting the Archie newspaper comics in book format. The pages are clean
and very clear.
Secondly, Bob Montana's artwork and his comedic style of drawing/story-telling
is damn near epic as it is legendary! This insanely talented man being this
forgotten and not being worshipped at the annual Comic Con, like he should
be, is a stinking travesty! Bob Montana did some amazing work on this
run of Archie strips! Montana is my favorite Archie comic book artist. I
used to buy the old Archie digests just to see some of his reprints in
color. For me, the old Archie comics were funny and well drawn. The new
Archie stuff is not!..And I 've got to thank IDW publishing one more time!
I love you!..I'm already waitng for the second book of this series! I can't wait
to see more!
Lastly, I got to gripe about the obscene wait to get this book into
my greedy little hands. Man, IDW kept pushing the release of this book
back and back and back. It felt like it would never come out.I finally snagged
my copy at a local comic book store. Plus, I agree with the person who posted
before me: Amazon really slept on this book and could've done a better
job of getting this out there in the fans' hands much sooner.
Hopefully, the second Archie book of this series won't be long in coming..
I'm also a little sad that IDW didn't print the Archie sunday comics
in this huge Archie collection.
I would love to see Bob Montana's work in color.
The stories themselves are great too, full of humor and adventurous situations, again different from the Archie's of my youth. All of the characters are there, just presented in different and dynamic ways, before they became "caricatures" of themselves, as ironic as that sounds. And they're genuinely funny, too!
I commend IDW for keeping the legacy of all of these classic strips alive for future generations. Whether it's Archie, Blondie, L'il Abner, Terry and the Pirates... we're fortunate to have them all preserved in such a beautiful format.
Hopefully they'll come out with subsequent volumes (and the Sunday color strips) soon.
