Comment: larrytalbot: the Archie page you refer to is in a separated folder inside the rar with a wrong name.Just renamed it pep_41_28.jpg and it should do the trick. Anyway the page order of this one seams wrong. Page named pep_42_03.jpg to pep_42_07.jpg (Text page, the Archie splash ad and the 2 ads following (ibc and bc for sure) are misplaced). I have 2 other versions with 2 different page order but I can't tell which one is the good one.
