On February 11, 1942: The first “Archie” comic book debuted! These comics have sold over 2 billion copies world-wide, and are published in dozen different languages. It consists of a variety of action-adventure super heroes and is the inspiration for the show “Riverdale”! The show “Sabrina the Teenage Witch” is also based on a character from this line of comics. The company that created these comics is now 80 years old, and Archie comics is its longest running publication. In 2010, the United States Postal Service even put Archie on a stamp! The comic books are definitely worth looking into: maybe over spring break!!
