Indexer Notes

This early version of the Archies poster features the group that was being used in the stories at the time, with Archie, Reggie and Jughead in the band and Betty and Veronica as go-go dancers. The girls would be added to the group when the music and cartoon spinoffs were made.

Indexer Notes

With this story, the soon-to-be-canceled "Man From R.I.V.E.R.D.A.L.E." series abandons superhero comedy (which was on the decline thanks to the decreased popularity of the "Batman" TV show) and replaces it with more surreal humor in the vein of the "Archies" stories.
