“For one, itâ€™s an icon in itself, but deconstructing the icon, I like that. â€œBatmanâ€ is too realistic, everything is drawn. The Archies has this very jovial line work. â€¦ A friend of mine, this guy Scooter, turned me on to the Archies comics, and now he gets me the vintage 30-year-old comics because the inks lift so well.”
I submit that only a guy named Scooter (or Dan DeCarlo) can turn you on to Archie comics.
