Dan DeCarlo  - Original Cover art to Archie's Joke Book #107 (1966) and also published as the cover to IDW’s Archie: The Best of Dan DeCarlo Volume 4 Hardcover (2013).
DeCarlo illustrated one of his most iconic Archie covers from the 1960's, featuring Betty and Archie sitting in Pop's Chock'lit Shoppe, with Archie being given the check by Pop Tate.
Pop's Chock'lit Shoppe is the popular diner in the town of Riverdale which is open 24 hours, and is a popular hangout spot for Archie, Jughead, Betty and Veronica.

The art is in ink over graphite, edge-to-edge on Bristol board, with an image area measuring 14" x 15" inches.
During this time period, Archie's method for producing their covers was to draw the new art on a separate board like this, then paste it onto their cover template that they used over and over again. The art is in okay shape, with very minor use of whiteout, some minor glue-staining on the front (glue-staining on the back).

Please note the comic book images are provided as reference, and is not sold with the artwork. The artwork is in very good condition. 

Dan DeCarlo (December 12, 1919 – December 18, 2001) 
Beginning his career at Archie in the mid 1950s, DeCarlo is best known as the artist who developed the look of Archie Comics in the late 1950s and early 1960s, modernizing the characters to their contemporary appearance and establishing the publisher's house style up until his death. DeCarlo drew every character in the Archie pantheon at one time or another, but it is his outstanding work on Betty and Veronica that he is held in such high regard for. 

Art collectors seek out original artwork from DeCarlo’s best period artistically, which is the mid 1950’s to the early 1970s. Artwork from this period is highly sought after and steadily rising in value.
