Artist Brian McLachlan decided to create a few comic book covers for some movie favorites, one of which has the characters from the John Hughes film The Breakfast Club drawn up as an Archie comic.

Here’s what McLachlan said about The Breakfast Club cover…
And finally, the one that inspired it all. The Breakfast Club done in the Archie’s style. They could have kept the whole John Hughs universe running in monthly books available on newstands everywhere. But they didn’t. I took a long time to plan out what each of the characters would be eating and my wife helped remind me that Allison loved Captain Crunch with load of sugar. The composition is Archie’s Gag which just means a non-dynamic composition that clearly shows the characters, their fashions and facilitates a verbal joke (in contrast to the Visual Gag Comic).
