Archie Comics

After reading the excerpt from “Understanding Comics” by Scott McCloud, I began thinking about my favorite comics growing up, the Archie Comics. I used to read hundreds of Archie comics when I was away at sleep away camp, but never fully understood why I enjoyed them so much. However, McCloud’s explanation as to how bright fun colors and the design of characters can create different experiences for the reader, helped me understand why I always thought the comics were so fun to read (and why I always decided to skip the vintage less colorful Archie comic strips included in the books).
