Reading Room ADVENTURES OF THE DOVER BOYS Chapter One "Peril of the Inca Treasure"

Remember when "high adventure" meant "politically incorrect"?
Whether they meant to or not, Archie Comics dove headfirst into the concept with this one-shot.
Incas don't wear turbans.
Indians (residents of the Indian subcontinent, not Native Americans) do...
The unknown writer was apparently conflating colonial India with Peru.
Artist Harry Lucey, who was also doing Archie's entry into crime comics, Sam Hill: Private Eye, presents the action in clear, concise terms.
Be here TOMORROW for the continuation of this never-reprinted saga!
