PEP COMICS #26 - on newsstands February 1942

Here we have the first appearance of Veronica Lodge and Bob Montana goes out of his way to make her look special. Is Archie licking his lips? Not sure if it's meant to be some kind of metaphor, but the boys are paying no attention to that 'Keep Off the Grass' sign.

This is also the first appearance of the Riverdale High School exterior.

This story also features another motif we'll see plenty of over the years: Archie juggling two things at once, in this instance, working AND being on a date with Veronica.
