I can't get over how good Lucey's work is on Archie. The movement and facial expression give so much life and character the strips. Here's a splash page. from Hangman 2.
**Disclaimer** Remember, I'm a chat board performing artist- so take everything I say with a grain of salt. I never claimed to be any good at it, but there you have it.
"If it's not disclosed...you're being hosed." Who coined that phrase? Me, damnit! And it's still true.
"Into my heart an air that kills,From yon far country blows What are those blue remembered hills,What spires, what farms are those? That is the land of lost content,I see it shining plain, The happy highways where I went and cannot come again."
Nothing I say is intended to be a factual statement.

This thread has gone two years without a post. Makes me sad.
My recent purchase below inspired me to dig this thread up. Steve continues to post Lucey books in the greatest Archie covers thread, but somehow it just doesn't seem to do the man justice. One of my all time favorite creators, and one of the only ones who still moves me to laughter. I really wish I new how many covers he did for Archie (nevermind the interior stories).
When I was a kid I collected Archie comics, and I didn't know anything whatsoever about who drew any of the stories. But I did know that there was one artist out there who produced all the best Archie stories, and I tried to buy all the comics that featured that artist. Only in recent years did I learn the artist's name: Harrry Lucey. Simply the best.
