Archie 1941 Takes Readers Back To The Homefront
Jun 30, 2018
In the spring and summer of 1941 war engulfed Europe. France had fallen to Nazi Germany, England endured nightly bombing raids. The Soviet Union was under attack as the Wehrmacht drove ever eastward toward Moscow. The United States was not involved, but the clouds of war were gathering. Mark Waid, Brian Augustyn, and Peter Krause take readers back to the summer of 1941 and explore how life changed that year in their new series from Archie Comics, Archie 1941.
Taking a realistic view of the era, Waid, Augustyn, and Krause show how Archie Andrews, Jughead Jones, Betty Cooper, Vernoica Lodge, and their friends coped in the waning years of the Great Depression, reacted to the news of the Pearl Harbor attack on December 7th, and heard the call to enlist to save the world from the Axis Powers. The result is a unique look at a pivotal moment in American history, as seen through the eyes of some of the most famous characters in pop culture. Look for Archie 1941 #1 (JUL181593) in the July PREVIEWS catalog!
