Archie is a comic strip published by Archie Comics in New York, featuring the fictional teenagers Archie Andrews (who first appeared in December 22, 1941), Betty Cooper, Veronica Lodge, Reggie Mantle and Jughead Jones. The characters were created by publisher/editor John L. Goldwater, written by Vic Bloom and drawn by Bob Montana. They were based in part on people met by Goldwater "in the Midwest" during his travels throughout the United States while looking for jobs and places to stay.
