Riverdale's resident cartoonist takes center stage in this special story! Originally appearing in the pages of Archie & Friends #126-129, "The Cartoon Life of Chuck Clayton" focuses on Chuck's efforts to share his artistic talents with neighborhood kids, and the special relationships he develops as he teaches cartooning. It all starts when Chuck is asked to teach an after-school program in cartooning to elementary school kids... and it isn't long before he learns the kids can be more hyperactive than his doodles! But Chuck is determined to connect with the kids and help them create the next comic book classics. Along the way, he gets some help teaching from an unlikely source, and reaches out to a troubled child known for spreading graffiti. Can Chuck's world of collecting, drawing, and teaching kids how to make their own comics take on new meaning? The answer's just a splash panel away! This poignant tale comes courtesy of someone who knows their way around both creating and teaching comics, namely acclaimed writer, children's art advocate, and organizer of the world's only "Kids' Comic" convention, Alex Simmons.
