Archie Puts The Spotlight On The Sweetheart Of A Nation In A Collection Of ‘Ginger’

Archie 75 Series: Ginger


I like to think that I’ve got a pretty comprehensive knowledge of some of the more obscure Archie characters, but I have to admit that I’ve never really read much of Ginger. To be honest, though, that’s understandable. The series only had ten issues back in 1952, and just to put that into context, That Wilkin Boy, the series about Jughead’s cousin Bingo Wilkin, somehow managed to run for 50.

But fortunately, we now have the opportunity to get caught up thanks to the latest installment of the Archie 75 Series, which features a 75-page digital collection of Ginger’s lovestruck adventures. Check out a preview below!

As you can tell from the pages above, Ginger Snapp — not to be confused with Ginger Lopez, who would be introduced a few decades later as Riverdale’s resident fashionista — was essentially just a gender-swapped version of Archie, right down to having Dotty as a stand-in for Jughead. Considering how much of a trend that would be half a century later —to the point of Archie even doing a story along those lines with Tania Del Rio and Gisele Lagace back in 2012 — it’s an interesting little artifact.

Here’s the official solicitation:

Join us as we present some of the funniest stories from the series, from crazy clothing to school dance disasters!
