Bob Montana - Pep Comics #30 "The Escort Agency" Archie Page Original Art (MLJ, 1942).
Archie's new night job has him playing the role of a male escort -- to Miss Grundy! This incredible early page of Archie madness dates back to August, 1942; in fact, Archie debuted in the pages of Pep only a few months earlier, in December, 1941! In this page, he's in disguise behind a long beard, but there's no mistaking our young hero -- except to a love-starved Miss Grundy, that is! This ink on bristol page, the fifth of the six-page story, measures 17" x 22", with an image area of 13" x 18.5", and is in Very Good condition, with only some minor aging and light soiling along the border edges. While Montana strip art remains fairly common, older Archie-related comic pages like this simply don't come up for sale very often!
