I posted the splash page from this highly atypical 1947 story featuring Archie's girls. BETTY & VERONICA, on Facebook the other day to wild acclaim and interest due to its amazingly different art style. Dan DeCarlo's classic B&V style has been used for decades and, in fact, was a variation on the Archie "house style" that came even before DeCarlo! Thus, there is a certain level of shock in seeing our 16 year old heroines out of context in an Archie-less story (but for the wall picture on page one) and looking more like WWII pin-up models! The jury is still out on who did the art here but Steven Rowe, an expert on these sorts of things, speculates that it may be future Batman artist Irv Novick who had been drawing superheroes for the MLJ line (Archie's precursor if you will) or perhaps Harry Sahle. It's very GOOD art...it just isn't Betty and Veronica as we know and love them!
