Archie's Pals N Gals Archie's Pals N Gals was a comic book published by Archie Publications for 224 issues, between 1952 and September of 1991. Every issue of the series through the early 1970's was giant-sized, or larger than the regular newsstand comic books.

The title had no specific theme, but like most Archie comics seemed to concentrate on the doings of Archie and his pals Jughead and Reggie, and his gals Betty and Veronica.

Issue #23 contained the first appearances of Josie and Melody, two of the characters who would later be part of the (fictional) musical group Josie and the Pussycats. Josie would get her own self-titled comic in 1963, and a Saturday morning cartoon devoted to the Pussycats in the early 1970's.

In 1992, a year after the regular-sized comic book was cancelled, a new Archie's Pals 'n' Gals Double Digest title was launched, which ran until being canceled in 2011 with issue #146.
