Archie gets criticized a lot for being very hokey, many people arguing that he still espouses 1950s attitudes in the 2000s. I still think he is good for a laugh. Anyway, here is his first meeting with one of the loves of his life, Betty Cooper. This is Archie’s debut story.

I like how Archie likes to be called “Chick”, except I don’t think he was ever called that at all in any of the 1940s Archie Comics that I’ve ever read.
