Everything’s Archie Comics

We wanna dance, and we wanna sing, have some fun and go adventuring.

When I was 11 years old, I would go to Alpha Drugs in downtown Alpharetta, Georgia. They had a comic book section, just as you walked in the front door. One of my favorites was “Everything’s Archie” comic book, it even had a picture of Archie’s rock band on each cover. A lot of the stories had to do with the band, music, and dancing which fit in with Archie’s albums that were being released in this period. It was, of course, published by Archie Comics, from 1969 to 1991. It also was in conjunction with the Archie TV cartoon series that was on Saturday mornings.

My earliest issue is June 1970 #8 and my newest is August 1989 #144. It looks like that during 1982 they stopped putting the band on the covers. On the first issue, cover pencils were by Dan DeCarlo, inks by Rudy Lapick. A lot of the stories were by Frank Doyle. Of course, Archie’s Theme (Everything’s Archie), the opening to the TV show, is where the comic book name came from.
