Archie's Pals 'n Gals #161 75¢ Canadian Price Variant Issue Notes:
3rd Appearance of Cheryl Blossom
#25 in this year's Top 100.
Angelo notes: In my opinion, an UNVERVALUED CPV. Cheryl Blossom's third appearance; first solo story; second Jason Blossom; multiple SEXUAL suggestive panels well-disguised on the cover making this controversal indeed! See one of my previous market reports and scroll all the way to the bottom where I point them out in detail!
Doug notes: FIRST SOLO Story & Third overall appearance CHERYL BLOSSOM in Snob Hill, 11 page story; Cheryl Blossom Pinup; Second appearance of Jason Blossom; Archie in DRAG cover; CONTROVERSIAL Hidden SEXUAL and Sexual Innuendo Scenes HIDDEN in Busy BORDER Images; First appearance of CHERYL BLOSSOM in this Title;
CGC label note: 3rd appearance of Cheryl Blossom.
