'Archie' Creator Tom Moore Passes Away at 86

The iconic cartoonist gave life to Archie and his friends for more than 27 years.

Classic American cartoonist Tom Moore, creator of Archie, has passed away due to lung cancer. The El Paso, Texas Navy veteran first gave life to Archie and his friends Jughead, Betty and Veronica back in 1953 all the way up to the 1980s. The comic had his Riverdale crew experience everything from teenage angst and high school-life drama to more modern storylines of both rural and urban challenges.
