ARCHIE by the late, great Dan DeCarlo

Here's some advance notice on a very cool project!

Coming out in May, IDW Publishing kicks off an extraordinary series of Archie Comics' collected editions featuring the dean of Archie artists --- Archie: The Best of Dan DeCarlo Volume One HC ($24.99) offers the very best of this classic and influential artist, gathering stories from the mid 1950s through the early 1970s.

Dan DeCarlo spent nearly 50 years with the characters of Riverdale High, drawing every character at one time or another. Archie: The Best of Dan DeCarlo Volume One contains dozens of stories handpicked by DeCarlo experts, all newly scanned from rare original art and recolored to capture the flavor of the original comics.

This is the first in IDW’s “Best Of” series, which will grow to include collections of Bob Montana, Harry Lucey, and Stan Goldberg, among others.

“It’s no secret to anyone who knows me that I am a great fan of Dan DeCarlo’s work,” said IDW Special Projects Editor, Scott Dunbier. “His classic style inspired and influenced scores of artists and entertained countless fans.”

Place your orders now at Flying Colors to reserve a copy of this Archie classic edition!

Peace ('n Pop's Choklit Shoppe)!
