Archie-Harry Lucey-1961

Here's a fun, atypical Archie and Jughead story from the early days of the 1960s monster boom that stemmed from the Universal horror films being sold to TV and the magazine Famous Monsters of Filmland. Vampires were explicitly forbidden under the Comics Code but somehow Archie got around it here and in MADHOUSE. Couldn't be because John Goldwater was the head of the Code, I suppose.
