There's a good chance this came from the great Dan DeCarlo, who did "good girl" art better than just about anyone, as his drawings of Veronica, Betty, Sabrina, Josie, etc. prove.

Dan was the definitive Archie artist of the '60s, and I'd say it's a safe bet that this is his work. It's sad the way the publisher gave him the boot when he dared suggest that Josie and the Pussycats might have been his idea, when they were about to make a fair pile off the live action film version.

Very Jack Kirby-esque story, and all too common, unfortunately. Unexpectedly cutthroat, the comix biz.

Betty was hotter. Check out the 1950's Mad Magazine spoof, "Starchie".
