Jeff Shultz - Archie

Jeff Shultz, Superheroes for Hospice, Eatontown, NJ 2010.09.11

Shultz is an artist at Archie comics drawing Betty & Veronica. Shultz has also added his talents to the March of Dimes sketch cards.

Archie was created by John Goldwater (publisher/editor), Vic Bloom (writer) and Bob Montana (artist). An Archie drawing by Montana can be seen on the reference page...
Archie first appeared in MLJ Magazines' Pep Comics in 1941, becoming the dominant feature in 1944. As Archie's popularity grew the company changed its name to Archie Comic Publications. Archie is a perpetual 17 year old high school student, who has experienced the everyday life of a teenager, along with being a pop-music star, superhero and spy...

1946 Archie made his debut in the newspapers, today the strip is in the fine hands of Craig Boldman and Fernando Ruiz.. other artists on the comic strip included Dan DeCarlo and Henry Scarpelli. Of the 5 stamps issued as the Sunday Funnies, Archie is the only one probably better known for his comics and music, rather than his comic strip...

1943 Archie debuted with his own radio show which ran until 1953..
