Today, in honor of the late Stan Goldberg, we take a look at one of the most famous comics he drew, the famed Archie Meets the Punisher crossover comic book from 20 years ago!
Longtime Archie artist Stan Goldberg passed away on Sunday. When Batton Lash came up with the idea for this story (after the heads of Archie told them of an earlier idea for an Archie/Punisher story that they had that they felt didn’t work because it didn’t fit the feel of an Archie story) and Marvel Editor-in-Chief Tom DeFalco (who used to work at Archie early in his career and nowadays is writing some stories for them once again) agreed to do the crossover, the artists chosen for the project were Goldberg for the Archie side of things and the late, great John Buscema for the Punisher side of things.
