Archie by Tom Moore

Tom Moore was an American comic book artist who had a longtime assocation with Archie Comics. He started out as a cartoonist while serving in the US Navy during the Korean War, creating the 'Chick Call' strip for military service publications. Back in civil life, he attended the Cartoonist and Illustrator School in New York and joined Archie Comics shortly afterwards, in 1953.

He drew one comic book a month until 1961, when he went to work in public relations. He made his comeback in the 1970s as an artist for Billy DeBeck's 'Barney Google and Snuffy Smith', Jay Ward's 'Underdog' and Paul Terry's 'Mighty Mouse',, before eventually returning to Archie. During this period, he was mostly working on the 'Jughead' character. He retired in the late 1980s, and subsequently taught at El Paso Community College. He passed away in his hometown El Paso, Texas, in July 2015, aged 86.
