Archie Comic Books Price Guide

Archie Andrews, 'America's Typical Teen-Ager', has been published continuously since his first appearance in PEP Comics #22 in December 1941.

Putting together a complete collection of Archie comics would be virtually impossible.

The double whammy is, the early issues are rare and expensive; and there are digests and numerous spin-off series, Canadian-only publications and overseas issues.

This page deals with the Archie Comic Books series published from 1942. We provide record sales and minimum values for issues #1 through #100, plus some later key issues.

We have other pages for Betty and Veronica, Madhouse, Jughead and so on. See our Archie Comics menu here.

The Giant Series magazines are also known as Archie's Christmas Stocking. They were first published in 1954. Naturally, they were created for the December market.

Due to their large size and purpose as stocking stuffers for kids around the holiday season, these books are almost impossible to find in VF or nicer.
