I saw Mr. Silberkleit's obit in the LA Times today. I am so sorry for your loss. I grew up with Archie and the gang.
In the Times obit, they quoted a question he had been asked in an interview about who he preferred, Betty or Veronica. He said he loved them equally.
I married a Veronica, wish I'd married a Betty. (I also went to my senior prom with a Veronica--could do an issue of the comic on that disaster.)
Keep up the good work with the comics, you guys are great.
