Archie Goes Postal, 2010 Sunday Funnies Stamps Unveiled

Guess you had to see that one coming.

The U.S. Postal Service unveiled the 2010 Archie postage stamp.  As part of their "Sunday Funnies" line coming in July, Archie is joined by Veronica and Betty.  Archie existed in only comic book form and didn't debut in newspapers until 1946.  Now the comic is being honored among others.
Who else is will be along side the Archie postage stamp?  We will get to see Beetle Bailey, Calvin & Hobbes, Garfield and Dennis the Menace.

It's not often I buy stamps to collect, but these are screaming to be collected.  It is an interesting group.  I wonder how it was narrowed down to these five different comics.  I have to admit that when I think about Archie comics, I don't think of them as being in the Sunday Funnies.  I wonder if there was a voting process.   
What do you think of this selection?  What "Sunday Funnies" comics would you have wanted to see?

I don't know if it's just my mind, but that Archie one looks like something is going on. Something I'd rather not go into detail about since minors could be reading this. 

Just something about how both Archie and Betty are looking toward Veronica. Along with Veronica's smirk.
It's also obvious that Archie isn't a natural red head. Look at those eyebrows.

Looks cool! I don't care for stamp designs that much though...They change the rate so often it makes my head spin.

Annie would have been nice, but the existing line-up is superb.

I didn't see that until you posted it. (O_O) Now I notice that she......

While I'm not disappointed Archie is in the line-up, I agree, he's more of an actual comic book property instead of a Sunday Funnies newspaper.  Its all good though.   
I'm just waiting for the day the Post Office will release a Flaming Carrot postage stamp.  UT!!

I'd have made a Peanuts stamp before Archie. As you said, Archie wasn't primarily a strip in the paper.

I think Jesse Custard needs a stamp.

Oh Archie! you depraved sex-maniac I applaud your having fooled so many, for so many decades...
