Got No PEP

I'm swamped, folks. The best I can offer are these wacky old PEP covers I dug up. I really like the cartooning in the older Archies, and these UFO and fantasy-themed covers from 1962 are pretty funny. Archie Comics was never shy about exploiting popular fads, and '62 was a year when futuristic and science-fictional concepts loomed large in the public consciousness, so a saucer invasion of Riverdale was probably inevitable. Plus ghosts.

And these so-called Internet generation whippersnappers think they invented multitasking...
