PART TWO OF LION'S ROBOT ARCHIE: THE JUNGLE ROBOT...



Another four early ROBOT ARCHIE pages for you to drool
over, comics-lovers.  These two instalments are from LION #s 4 &
5, published way, way back in 1952, so you've got a real slice of history
to savour.  Isn't it a crime that there's no comic mag today publishing new
adventures of all the great British comic heroes of yesteryear?  What would
you call a weekly mag containing strips like The STEEL CLAW, ADAM
ETERNO, JANUS STARK, The SPIDER, KELLY'S EYE, KARL
The VIKING, STEEL COMMANDOThe TRIGAN EMPIRE,
GALAXUS, and other other fondly-remembered greats?

I'd call it "Bloody Brilliant!"

But was there ever a city robot?

Of course - when Archie went into the city, that's what he became.

Was it ever explained why they settled on the name "Archie" for the robot?

Kid said...

To be honest, BS, I don't know. If it was, I've never read it.
