Comments: The settings and the look to the people definitely fit the times.
Archie seems in a funk. As he and the others graduate he is shown so down in the dumps. Why is he so down?
The war going on is featured in the panels. You can see Archie is affected by it too. The way he is drawn shows the war is heavy on his mind.
As Archie turns eighteen he is in such a mood. He broods all the time, the happy go lucky teenager has vanished. This story is a real downer. Archie has no idea what to do with his life. He does keep watching and listening to the news about WWII and that America may be entering it.
The supporting characters are not used that much. Betty is shown through the art how much she loves Archie.
Archie needs to find himself and his calling in life.
