Until I saw Archie in upper and lower case I didn’t notice its resemblance to… Archie comics.
Good point! Here’s the Archie logo on issue no. 5 from November 1943. The similarity is mainly due to the contour around the letterforms, plus their general roundedness. It could very well be that the name is more than a coincidence. Archie (the typeface) had a contourless cousin named Super Cooper. That name was probably chosen in reference to the godfather of chubby faces, Cooper Black.
