Comics That Just Ain't Right II: Special Black History Month edition

"We all smiled, like it was just some throwaway joke at Old Man Weatherbee's expense. Then Archie turned those all-American blues on me and hissed, 'Don't let the sun set on your ass in Riverdale, boy.' After Archie turned his back, Betty leaned in close, pointed at my glass of milk and murmured, 'Like the taste of white, do you...?'" --From A Token In a Land of Quarters: Memoirs Of The Only African-American Within Fifty Miles Of Riverdale, by Charles "Chuck" Clayton.*

This cracker-approved cover courtesy of the fine folks at www.millarworld.biz --and some damn poor editing.

*-And yes, that's the character's real name. I found it in less than five minutes of googling. God bless you, Internets!

This is easily one of my top 3 all-time favorite comic covers. Something Awful.com spoofed it over here: http://www.somethingawful.com/articles.php?a=1823
and as funny as it is, the original is even funnier. That's the sign of a great comic cover.
