Synopsis
The nostalgia craze of the early '70s transports Archie and the gang back in time to "Nostalgia Land," where they live out the lives of typical teenagers at the turn of the century. They discover that people back then had stronger moral values and kept the air and water cleaner, and conclude that the people of the modern world can find the same kind of spirit if they "look up."

Indexer Notes

One of many examples of Al Hartley working religious themes into a mainstream Archie comic, with the characters arguing that life was better when people had "unity" and religious values were stronger. Story in four parts (5 pp, 6 pp., 4 pp., 5 pp.).
