really liked it
bookshelves: golden-age-comics

Dan DeCarlo's short lived comic series from the early Fifties serves up a Space Age spin on the Archie comics style. There's Neutron High School instead of Riverdale High, Joe's Blast-Inn instead of Pop's Chocklit Shoppe, etc. Jetta's boy friend is named Arky (sounds familiar!) and there's a Veronica Lodge style-vixen named Hilaria.

I thought the comics had an Archie's Mad House vibe about it because it was so weird. I could've done without the interpretations of Jetta drawn by obscure artists; I found it distracting from the book in a bad way.

Rebecca Totally agree about the fan art. After seeing Dan De Carlo's art everything else is a let down.
