Poor Millie, she looks lower than last year's hemline. Yes, folks, it was all about the hemline in the late sixties and early seventies, and comic books of that time reflected those styles. Perhaps nowhere was it more clear than in Archie comics. It was the perfect venue to parade the newest fashions - it took place in contemporary times, and it involved nothing but a bunch of teenagers. Archie was like Cosmo for middle schoolers.
