‘Archie’ Cartoonist Tom Moore Dead At 86

EL PASO, Texas (AP) — Tom Moore, the “Archie” cartoonist who brought to life the escapades of a freckled-face, red-haired character, has died in Texas. He was 86.

Moore, who began drawing cartoons while in the U.S. Navy during the Korean War, died early Monday morning while in hospice care in his hometown of El Paso, his son Lito Bujanda-Moore told The Associated Press on Tuesday. He said his father was diagnosed with throat cancer within the past week and chose not to undergo treatment.

Moore drew Archie Andrews and his friends on and off from 1953 until he retired in the late 1980s. Annual sales of the comic regularly surpassed half a million during the 1960s, according to the El Paso Times.

“I did one comic book a month,” Moore told the newspaper in 1996. “I did everything. We always worked six months ahead. I’d be doing Christmas issues in June and beach stories with a foot of snow outside my window.”

After the war, Moore used funding available through the GI Bill to attend a school in New York for cartoonists. He studied under “Tarzan” comic strip illustrator Burne Hogarth.

Soon after, Moore signed up with Archie Comics in New York. Bob Montana created “Archie” in 1941, and Moore took over in 1953.

But by 1961, Moore couldn’t ignore the itch to be closer to the mountains of far western Texas, according to his son. He and his family moved from Long Island, New York, back to his native El Paso that year, and he later took a break from comics and worked in public relations.

“He always felt that his heart belonged at the foot of the Franklin Mountains,” Moore’s son, Lito Bujanda-Moore, told the newspaper.

Bujanda-Moore said he father loved every aspect of nature: trees, rivers, mountains and deserts. One year the family cooked their Thanksgiving meal at home, then took all of it out to the desert just east of El Paso.

“We would be able to have a great Thanksgiving dinner under the stars,” he said.

Archie Comics’ editor in chief, Victor Gorelick, who has worked at the company for more than 50 years, said Moore “was a cartoonist’s cartoonist.” He noted that Archie Comics invited Moore back to help revamp Archie’s friend, Jughead, and remained with the company until he retired.

“Tom was very funny and had a knack for putting together really great, hilarious gags and special pages when he worked at Archie,” Gorelick said. “He was probably best known here for inking our ‘Jughead’ relaunch decades ago. We’re all sad to hear this news and wish his family the very best during this time.”

Archie Comics is saddened to hear of the passing of artist Tom Moore. Our thoughts are with his family and fans.

After retiring, Moore kept tabs on Archie — and disagreed when the comic book company decided to kill off the character.

The El Paso Museum of Art displayed some of Moore’s work and his vast comic collection about 20 years ago.

“I have enjoyed what I’ve done and I am pleased that others liked it, too,” Moore said at the time. “I think it’s such a kick that my stuff is going to be hanging at the museum. Who knew Archie would have such universal appeal?”

Along with his son, Moore and his wife of 63 years, Ruth, also raised a daughter, Holly Mathew.

Bujanda-Moore said there will be a celebration of his father’s life in coming weeks.

Archie The Friendly Spider, Kids Short Bedtime Story Books – 4 Book Bundle


This is a collection of 4 books plus one bonus story (exclusive to this bundle). These are childrens short stories, following the adventures of Archie The Friendly Spider as he continues on his quest to ‘make friends and influence people’ See what others say about his adventures: ***Humor and suspense make a first rate children’s story: J Chambers: Top 50 reviewer*** “The three stories are well written and include the elements that make a good children’s story: humor, suspense, and just enough danger to give the story some tension without being too scary. Also, each story is short enough to hold a child’s attention. I don’t usually comment on book covers, but the cover art is pretty cute, giving Archie a child’s face instead of an anatomically correct spider’s head, which would have been really scary.” *** Good Bedtime Story: Roberta Karchner – Top 50 Reviewer *** “I’m not certain what age group would be able to easily read this, but it makes an excellent bedtime story for kids, including my own granddaughter who is enjoying exploring the world. There is danger, but not enough to stress out little kids. And they will relate well to being small in a very big world, just like Archie!” *** Lovely wee children’s book: Niknok *** “This is a really nicely written children’s book & the story is just the right length for the age group-not too long or short. I really enjoyed & it more importantly, so did my daughters!” *** Great book for 5/6 year olds: Granny Annie *** “Downloaded this prior to going on holiday with my grandchildren aged 5 and 3. The five year old loved it – although I needed to moderate some of the bigger words. The stories are just the right length for this age group. We read it several times over!” What’s Inside the cover: Book 1: Archie Looks For A Friend The Girl Next Door A Surprise Encounter Archie Finds A Friend Book 2: Archie’s Adventures Begin! Archie Gets Attacked! Archie’s Mum Meets His New Friends Agnes Is Thrown Away! Book 3: Edinburgh Z

Archie Killed: Adored Comic Book Character To Die In ‘Life With Archie’ (VIDEO)

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Not even Archie Andrews is immortal in the world of comics.

Archie Comics announced Tuesday that the famous comic book character will heroically sacrifice himself while saving the life of a friend in a July installment of “Life with Archie,” a comic book series that tells the story of grown-up renditions of Archie and his Riverdale gang. “We’ve been building up to this moment since we launched ‘Life with Archie’ five years ago and knew that any book that was telling the story of Archie’s life as an adult had to also show his final moment,” Archie Comics publisher and co-CEO Jon Goldwater said in a statement.

Archie’s final moments will be detailed in “Life with Archie” No. 36, while issue No. 37 will jump forward a year and focus on his friends Jughead, Betty, Veronica and Reggie honoring the legacy of their red-headed pal.

Archie first appeared in comics in 1941 and went on to become a colorful icon of wholesomeness.

In recent years, Archie Comics has tackled such issues as gay characters and the zombie apocalypse in Archie’s fictional hometown of Riverdale. However, Archie himself won’t need to rise from the grave. The freckle-faced character will still be alive and well in other series.
