Speaking of Jughead....

A mystery was cleared up for me this week. I knew from years of reading Jughead that artist Samm Schwartz had left the series sometime in the mid-'60s and then reappeared around 1970 with a more pared-down, minimalistic "ligne claire" (clear line) style in the manner of Herge.

Thanks to the Grand Comics Database, I now know what issue he rejoined the series: #179. He went on to draw most of the stories in this title for the next 17 years (often injecting cameos of himself in the stories).

Here's a link to the Grand Comics Database, a great resource!
