Groove's Faves: "Summer Fun--and Summer Not" by Doyle, Lucey, and Epp

Greetings, Groove-ophiles! You guys seemed to have really dug our last Archie I post, so Ol' Groove decided to share another fave with ya, this one from Archie #220 (cover-dated August 1972). Again by my Archie dream team of Frank Doyle and Harry Lucey (with inker Marty Epp), "Summer Fun--and Summer Not" has Veronica I "inventing" the summer season, tanning on the beach, and class divisions, while Reggie I tries to profit from it all. It's fun in the prehistoric sun, baby!


  1. For a "family" comic, Archie I seems to have an awful lot of ass and crotch shots of Betty and Veronica.

    Not that I'm complaining...

  2. Dude, You ready my mind. Seeing Betty spread eagle was unsettling.

  3. If you think all the spread-eagle shots are pervy NOW, imagine what they looked like in the "pencilled" stage -- Lucey supposedly never drew the girls' clothes onto their figures, left that task up to the assigned inker.
