Groove's Faves: "Ice Cream Belle" by Gladir, DeCarlo, and Lapick

Hey, hey, hey, Groove-ophiles! It's a hot summer day--the perfect kind of day to travel back in time via our Groove-a-licious Archie-powered time machine to get our giggle on! "Ice Cream Belle" by George Gladir, Dan DeCarlo, and Rudy Lapick covers tons o'summer fun--hanging out by the pool, girls, summer jobs, girls, the ice cream man--and girls! From Archie Giant Series Magazine (aka Betty and Veronica Summer Fun) #236 (July 1975) comes fun, fun, fun in the sun! Dig it!


  1. I remember this story when it first was published. One of my all-time favorites! Of course I was always a sucker for Betty anyway when I was a teenager in the 70s (still am, come to think of it).

  2. Groove, you've done it again. You've featured a comic I had, which I'd forgotten. Always loved B&V and Dan DeCarlo's artwork.

  3. My memory may be playing tricks on me, but I think I remember reading this story as a kid. Of course, I didn't "collect" Archie comics--I'd just read 'em, and who knows what happened to them after that!
