Behold, the new Archie stamp, available at your local post office and usps.com in July! This one rectangle really does sum up the central emotional dynamic of the whole decades-long series. Betty looks longingly at Archie, Archie looks longingly at Veronica, and Veronica looks hot.
The stamp is part of the upcoming Sunday Funnies series, which will also include Calvin and Hobbes (awesome), Beetle Bailey (acceptable), Dennis the Menace (impossible to care less), and Garfield (actively dislike).
Also gracing new stamps this year: Mother Theresa, Winslow Homer, Oscar Micheaux (having a moment) and “Pansies in a Basket.”
So, you know, time to put some stuff in the mail?
