The X-Men have long been my favourite Marvel Superheroes.Way back in the 1960s I would read their adventures during my school break-time.I really like these retro-style artwork interpretations of the original team and hope that you do too!

THE ARCHIES PAPER DOLLS

Written by  on June 12, 2015

archies1

First ‘Archie’ was a comic, then he was the leader of a groovy pop group who enjoyed  a 1969 U.K. number one smash hit single – ‘Sugar, Sugar’ – bubblegum pop it may have been, but it sure was/is sweet! In that same year of 1969, at the pinnacle of their success, Whitman produced this extremely colourful paper doll set; ahhh, what memories!
