The Archie comic strip was in Pep Comics when it first started in the early 40's. Archie was so popular that they changed it to Archie Comics. Riverdale was originally indicated as Riverdale, New York which obviously refers to Riverdale in the Bronx. The writers later identified Riverdale as a state of mind which represents small towns. That was probably their way of not keeping Archie in a geographical limit.
