Yes, you read that right. In 1971, Archie Comics took a rare foray into current events and an even rarer stance on political issues with "Summer Prayer for Peace," which sees Archie, Jughead and Reggie inducted into the army, then debating the morality of draft dodging with a radical friend.

Edit - It has been pointed out that the second part of the scans I had posted were already posted here, so they have been removed and replaced with a sampling of the variant covers for issues #1 and #2 instead.

Norm has suffered paralysis on his left side (and is left handed). As an artist...that is devastating! Norm now needs months of extended care in a Nursing Home facility with daily therapy that will hopefully enable him to once again, continue his skillful art and regain his mobility to be able to walk again.
