I wanted to see how Archie and the gang have changed over the years, becoming more and more buffed, more defined to meet the changing expectations of masculine beauty.
Archie is thin, even underdeveloped, with little attention to realism in his arms and shoulders. He looks like a cartoon character.
Archie and Jughead appear in the Dan Montana house style, with some indication of pecs and maybe a line down the stomach to indicate abs.
When I was reading Archie comics as a kid, there was a lot more attention to the detail of pecs, shoulders, and biceps, particularly in the "muscle bound" Big Moose.
The guy's got a chest and abs, but no biceps.
A rather realistic Archie, with chest, abs and biceps.
Whoa, Reggie's got a 6-pack, plus shoulders, pecs, and biceps. Of course, he's parodying the tv show Jersey Shore, but still, he's come a long way in 70 years.
