Archie Andrews - Batman FDC

Archie Andrews as the Shield..
Fernando Ruiz was making an appearance at Dewey's Comic City, Madison, NJ on July 10, 2010 to promote the new Archie comic, the Man from Riverdale.

I did not have any first day covers (FDC) that were directly related to Archie, so I brought several with me that could be used. I discussed my ideas with Mr. Ruiz as follows, Archie as the Spy from the new comic on a McGruff the Crime Dog FDC (1984), Archie or Jughead as a werewolf on a Universal Monsters FDC (1997) or Archie as the Shield as seen on the Archie and Friends comic from Oct 2002 on a Batman FDC (2006).

Mr Ruiz stated he enjoyed drawing Archie as the Shield and liked the idea of using the Batman FDC, so the decision was an easy one...
