Issue Notes

With this issue, Dan DeCarlo Jr. replaces Chic Stone as the primary artist on "Archie." Dan Jr., one of Dan DeCarlo's twin sons, would draw most of the stories in this title (often inked by his brother, Jim) until his death in 1990. Dan Jr.'s style is extremely similar to, and often mistaken for, his father's.
