Millie the Model-Stan Lee/Stan G-1962

This 1962 MILLIE THE MODEL flashback story deals with Millie's teenage obsession with fashion which makes it a de facto origin story for Millie! Written by Stan Lee and drawn by Stan Goldberg in a style somewhat between the early humor style and the mid-sixties soap opera seriousness of the title, it shows how the character was a lot more fun than just the "girls' comic" to which Marvel relegated it at the company's peak. Lee, of course, went on to be a beloved pop culture icon and Mr. Goldberg continues to turn out some wonderfully fun stories for Archie Comics. Millie ran from the mid-forties to the early seventies and has recently been revived as a part of the Marvel Universe.
