Groupie-Doo, The Irreverent Archie Parody from 1975

Share this:

Apple Pie Vol 1 No 1 Mar 1975 {PDF}-35

Apple Pie was a humor magazine in the 1970s much like National Lampoon but focused a bit more on the comics and illustrations.  The premier issue, released in 1975, contained a wonderfully irrelevant parody of the Archie comics, specifically Betty & Veronica.

The story has the girls competing to see who can get into bed with Mick Jagger (here called “Mik Jugger”).  Unfortunately for them, they just end up getting assaulted by horny old record salesmen.  The story is a lot of fun, and the artistic likeness to the Archie comics is pretty well done.  Enjoy!

    Ah, what a sweet innocent tale.
    But that has to be the weirdest Mick Jagger representation I’ve ever seen, with pipe and school-blazer.

      Almost as if it were done by someone who had never heard of Mick Jagger.

    “The premier issue, released in 1975, contained a wonderfully irrelevant

    I think you meant “wonderfully IRREVERENT parody.” Anyway, I’m sharing this with a friend of mine who does the artwork for Archie Comics’ _Chilling Adventures of Sabrina_–he’ll get a kick of this!

    Funny how everyone wants to bang underage girls…

    The reason it looks so much like an Archie comic is because of the artist. Stan Goldberg was the main artist from the 70’s well into the 90’s. His best known piece was the Archie meets the Punisher.
