Aw man, I remember those pages from Archie when I was little (is it odd that as a kid I read comics about relationship problems but as an adult I read about superheroes and monsters?) -- a wonderful piece that makes me fall in love with WW all over again.
One of the reasons I love your work, Bill, is because you manage to look back at older tropes of comics, but without the 'irony' or mocking that most modern interpreters feel compelled to filter them through. You manage to recreate these sort of things that would never appear in the 'Rapey-Rapey-Kill-Kill' crazy DCnU with affection and love, not anger or derision. Thank you for that.
