In his interview in Comic Book Artist magazine (March 2004) Dexter Taylor explained that his editor, Richard Goldwater, ordered him to include the "Pureheart the Powerful" concept in Little Archie: "He decided to do the Pureheart, Little Pureheart name. It's a silly title, but you know, you do it... Captain Pureheart was in the regular Archie comic books, but I don't know how successful that was. I never got too much feedback on that. I used to get letters all the time, but not on Little Pureheart, so I don't know if they were crazy about it or what."
