Archie Comics,

38 years ago I was at a friend's house reading the Archie Comics and came across the pen pal section....we closed our eyes and pointed to a name... I pointed to a name I could not even pronounce then and she lived in


... 38 years later we are still writing and she lives in

now and is coming to visit me in

July 28th thru August 11th ...
thank you Archie Comic Books for your pen pal sections.

Hilda Ann Hellwig



This is really a great story. It's so nice to hear that Archie Comics helped you make a life long friend. If you wouldn't mind sending me a photo when pen pal comes to visit I would like to put a picture of the two of you on our website along with your email.




Well, my pen pal stayed for two weeks and left on August 11, 2007. What a wonderful time we both had... people could not believe our story of meeting in the Archie Comic Books... we both thank Archie Comics for letting us find a lifelong friend. From the bottom of our hearts... thank you

Hilda Ann Hellwig

P.S. Hope you like the pic

Everything you ever wanted to know about the Mighty Crusaders, from the Golden Age to today.
