Comments: Archie is narrating the story. You will immediately notice changes to the Archie Universe. The basic look yes has changed and been updated. Also the storyline as well.
This issue does drop a bombshell on you. It is explosive. Even with the bombshell the story seems to start out slow. About half way through it picks up.
Archie finds his passion here.
There is a mystery as well that will definitely have you coming back to find the answer. Mark Waid does leave you hanging waiting for the answer.
The back up story here is from Pep Comics # 22, 1941 this is the very first ever Archie story by Bob Montana and Vic Bloom.
The art style and the look to the characters is different than what your used to. Archie you would hardly recognize if you did not know it was him. You see all the elements that you have come to love about Archie here. He will bring a smile to your face.
Twenty covers are shown in the back as well. They are filled with lots of great art work.

Comments: Having Archie breaking the fourth wall and talking to the readers is cute. It is a great way to inform them of facts about characters and the story.
Wow a major secret is revealed here as if it were nothing.
Betty is a mess after her and Archie's breakup. Making herself up though she does look cute. Her emotions are up on the surface and easy to see and read.
Archie is shown as a clutz but here he is shown feeling a lot more hurt about damages he causes. It is done more realistic.
Archie and Veronica see each other. Veronica is the epitome of class and beauty.
The love Betty has for Archie is so apparent. Her expression brings it across. She is in love.
The back up story here is from Jackpot Comics # 6, 1942 by Bob Montana. Jughead used to have a pet cat interesting fact. Archie does get into a race and consternation ensues. It is a fun race to watch.
This new Archie series is different but different does not mean not as good as we find out here. Great story and gorgeous art great the reader here.

Comments: Archie is in love with Veronica.
Jughead is drawn very dark and his eyes are totally black.
Archie is acting nervous. He does not lack confidence he just seems to. He goes right after what he wants and thats Veronica.
Veronica is written and drawn with a certain air about her. She knows the effect she has on people and does not care.
Veronica's first taste of school cafeteria food is an experience. She does present quite a mess after her first taste. It is also one very funny drawn scene.
Veronica has Archiekins twisted around her little finger.
This new updated look is different in some ways and the same in others. It does work though.
The back up story is from Pep Comics # 26, 1942 by Montana. Archie gets his first date with Veronica here. His first date does not go so well and he decides he wants nothing to do with her. That does not last long.

Comments: Here we find out about The Lipstick Incident. Archie and Betty were the perfect couple. They did everything together.
Two girls decide to give Betty a make over. Betty does look hot as a girly girl. Betty is still Betty though no matter how she looks and Archie should know that. Looks are not everything. To bad for some teenage boys they are everything.
We get a look at the new look for Reggie. He looks like someone out of the movie Grease.
The backup story "The Great Lover" is from Archie Comics # 36, 1949. Very cute art in this story. Betty is drawn so lovely in her formal dress. Betty is wearing her war paint and on the hunt but her prey is oblivious to her intentions. Poor Betty and poor Archie.

Comments: Veronica is starting to wrap Archie around her little finger. We see his clumsiness come out but in a more normal fashion, more realistic. It is still funny just not as much as you were used to before.
Betty, Jughead and Reggie are all working together for a common goal. That goal changes though. Reggie here is not truly a friend. He is just someone they know. He is shown as a punk.
The art is done well at times and at others times it is not. The people are at times blotches of color.
Archie narrates a story about a centipede throughout this comic. The punch line is well almost worth the wait.
The backup story "All Balled Up" is from Archie # 32, 1948. Archie has a way of things happening around him that would never happen with anyone else. It does make for fun and trouble. Nice retro style art from the time period.

Comments: Archie gets hit hard on the head with a softball. It was an accident and Betty was the batter.
This series is presented more realistically than the older Archie Comic titles.
Archie the poor boy has a concussion. The way he talks is funny. The seriousness of the situation is obvious. It says something about him what his first words and thoughts are as he becomes more aware.
Reggie is up to no good. He comes across as a slimeball to the max.
Veronica well she is shown as rich yes but also as a caring individual. She really loves and cares about Archie. This story brings that across perfectly.
"The Caddy" is from Archie # 15, 1945. Here Archie helps his dad golf. For Mr. Andrews it is a day he will not soon forget. Archie always means well just things have a way of not going his way.

Comments: Well the dynamics of this story are different then what your used to. Reggie is still a heel but one who is cunning. He has wormed his way into Mr. Lodge's good graces. He also seems to enjoy checking out Veronica's chest. Archie now he thinks she is beautiful but lies more than just that about her.
Archie and Jughead have a conversation with Pop. Now this conversation is fun to follow. Pop we see is one great guy.
Archie is a bumbling fool at some things. His body just goes off on its own. It is funny and cute to see.
The back-up story is from Archie # 18, 1943 by Bill Vigoda. This story is all about a lucky coin. Be careful what you wish for. Be very careful. Cute and fun story with old style art.
Archie Andrews is average ordinary teenager with the luck of living the life he has which is extraordinary.

Comments: It is cute the way Archie talks to the reader. It adds some fun to the comic.
Mr. Lodge is running for Mayor of Riverdale. He does have a plan.
Mr. Lodge also wants Archie out of his life. The art clearly shows his expressions of dislife and outright hate for Archie.
Veronica and Archie do have a unique relationship. Her dad though will go to any lengths to crush it. Here Lodge goes to far.
The art is done flat looking at times. For the most part though it is done great.
Archie shows real courage and also thoughtfulness. He stands up to a bully. So does Archie's dad. Archie and his dad are a lot alike.
Well you can not fight love. Veronica and Archie do belong together and they are.
The back-up story is from Archie Annual # 3, 1951, "Athlete's Feat" by Samm Schwartz. Working out for Archie is an adventure. It is also a travesty for Betty. Even when Betty wins she loses.

Comments: As Archie catches the reader up in a narration he delivers to the reader in the background we see all the precautions Mr. Lodge is taking to keep him out. It is way over the top. Its so funny and having Archie talk to the reader while it is going on just adds to it.
Veronica and Archie hang out at his home. It is made easy to see Veronica misses not having her wealth there. It is also apparent she should look beyond wealth and enjoy the really important things.
Veronica makes herself right at home at the Andrews house. She brings lots of toys and accessories. To much though even of a good thing as they say is not always a good thing.
Veronica goes shopping but not how or where you expect. This is such a heart warming scene. The slight touch of humor makes it just perfect. Archie and Veronica where just meant to be. Poor Betty.
The backup story "The House That Lodge Built" from Archie # 138, 1963. Story Frank Doyle and artist Harry Lucey.
Here we see the relationship between Mr. Lodge and Archie. The art does have the characters always doing something. The art is old style and beautifully done.

Comments: This issue starts out about Mr. Collier a teacher at Riverdale High. Students both love and hate him. He is made to sound like a fair but tough teacher.
So Archie gets both candidates for Mayor to hate him. Now the worst part is the one other person who hates him. She tells him to fix things and he had better do it. Things go from bad to worse for Archie.
This story is so emotionally charged. The scene with Betty and Archie will made you sad. You will have to come back to see how it turns out.
The backup story is "Depressed Area" from Archie's Pals 'n' Gals # 28, 1964. The art is by Harry Lucey and Martin Epp, the story by Frank Doyle.
Betty keeps showing up Archie in sports. She is way better then him. You can just tell where this is leading to. Yes Veronica shows up to make Archie feel so much better about himself. She is a girly girl and just what his confidence needed. The story is well written and delivers what you have come to expect. Poor Betty.
Archie has been re-imagined and your imagination will let you join him on his wild adventure we call life.

Comments: Both Veronica and Betty start their own bands. They plan to compete in a talent contest.
The division in Riverdale about a teacher has cause a division in the gang. Two bands form and they both go at it.
Now this story finally focuses on Betty and Archie and the fact they are friends. These two both care so deeply for each other. The best of friends forever. This is such a touching moment between them. They may no longer be boyfriend and girlfriend but their friendship will last forever.
"Music Soothes" 1968ís Archie #185, by script Frank Doyle, pencils Harry Lucey, inks Marty Epp and letters Bill Yoshida.
The Archies get to play but have their problems. They do end up using flattery to get their way. People do love flattery and it can get you just what you want.
The main story is something you just have to read. The feelings it will bring out in you will leave you with a warm feeling inside and maybe a tear in your eye.

Comments: Sayid and Veronica both saw Archie and Betty hugging. They hugged as friends, very close friends but just friends. Veronica and Sayid though interpreted it how they wanted to.
The art is pasty and flat. Its boring.
The race for Mayor is over and we have a winner. We also have a sore loser.
Veronica and Archie and also Betty and Sayid are both having relationship troubles. The issue is way to serious. But than the emotional part bursts in. Helping a friend in need is important beyond words. Betty risks it all to help a friend in need.
"Archie and the gang with Moose!" From 1990, script Mark Waid, art Chris Allan, letters Bill Yoshida and colors Barry Grossman.
Midge breaks up with Moose and all of Riverdale is in peril. It is a disaster well until Midge and Moose make up that is. Than all is well again for the town of Riverdale.

Comments: Archie is realizing what life is like without Veronica there.
Both Veronica and Archie miss each other and are having a hard time dealing with it.
Cheryl Blossom is a somewhat beautiful girl. She acts nice but the way she acts you can tell she is stuck up and not really nice at all.
We get to see just how much of a monster Cheryl is. Not towards Veronica but another girl. Cheryl really goes above and beyond at being a scum sucking b***h.
This story is just bursting with emotions. All doom and gloom ones. Well except for Cheryl being all cheery. You just want to see her get what she deserves.
The back-up story from "Archie's Girls Betty & Veronica # 320" from 1982. Script Frank Doyle, pencils Dan DeCarlo, inks Jim DeCarlo, letters Bill Yoshida and colors Barry Grossman.
Cheryl does get a little to bare on the beach. Cheryl and her brother Jason push the laws at the beach and they both pay for it. Betty and Veronica get a ringside seat to watch the entertainment.

Comments: Archie tries to get Jughead to get a cell phone. Its goes about as you would expect. Archie ends up with a date. The date goes as expected with the old Archie charm and luck. Having Jughead narrating parts of the story adds a nice fun touch to it.
Meanwhile in Switzerland Veronica and Cheryl Blossom do have a nice friendly conversation. Kind of like a mongoose and a cobra. These two are similar in that both are rich but Veronica has higher morals. Veronica as well does not give in. we do get a good look at Veronica's personality.
Archie goes overboard trying to be like Jughead. He should be like Archie that is who he is.
Veronica is still ruthless but knowing Archie and Riverdale has changed her. Veronica Lodge actually now we see she has a soul here. She feels sorry for winning at the cost of another.
Jughead Jones is Archie's best friend. As such we see his loyalty put to the test as he must save Archie.
Joe Eisma treats us to a beautiful pin-up of Cheryl in the back. She is one cute redheaded school girl.
The one thing most obvious in this issue is that Archie and Veronica belong together. They are the couple supreme.

Comments: Jughead goes to Kevin to get help planning a party. He also gets some advice.
Archie with Jughead's help comes to his senses. He realizes he needs to be himself and not Jughead. This is a valuable life lesson. Always be true to ones self.
Archie gave his parents a wonderful party. Plus he helped to give them a wonderful life.
Archie is drawn mopping around. He misses Veronica.
Veronica gets help from her dad. She wants to win the war. A war against Cheryl. Veronica almost wins but then the playing field changes.
This issue is serious. It has drama but no fun. Archie just seems so sad this issue. Well with a certain someone on her way back that should change.

Comments: Archie the narrator of his story. Dilton invents an app. that allows you to rate anything. Reggie being Reggie finds a way to use it in a not so nice way. Reggie does have a way of getting under your skin and setting it on fire with his ways. He is one troublemaker.
Reggie makes one mistake he lets Dilton know it was him that misused his app. Poor Dilton feels so bad for inventing the app. His face conveys it and his actions certainly do to.
Cheryl now is in Riverdale and she is sinking in her claws. Her personality comes through loud and clear she wants to be the Queen Bee and will destroy Veronica Lodge and use anyone she has to to achieve her goal.
Archie is not featured here but others are and it is done right. It is great to see the other residents of Riverdale shown.

Comments: Cheryl is out for revenge and her instrument for it is one Archie Andrews. Cheryl is shown so focused on this goal. The art shows her as a beautiful teen girl.
Cheryl is shown in an over the top scene to make her appear as a hero. Cheryl is a stuck up girl who is material. She is written as a girl who cares only about herself.
Seeing Cheryl as she sees Archie for what he truly is is eye opening for her. Cheryl does not want him. Not even to use to get even with Veronica. These two girls do hate each other but at least Archie is no longer on the firing range.
There is also a mystery about Cheryl that will leave you wondering what is going on.

Comments: Archie is going on a date with Veronica to celebrate her being back. These two do seem so different but somehow they go together perfectly or do they?
The art is just wow as in so distorted and no detail and just awful. The coloring is nice and light.
Dilton and Betty have a date and it may start out bad but does change. At a car show the conversation becomes so cute. Betty starts to think of Dilton a little differently. It is nice to see this happen.
The Blossom twins have a mystery that needs solving. Who do they go to well the most street smart guy around. He also loves hamburgers. Jughead has no love for the Blossoms.
There are three separate stories going on here. Which does make each one short. They each though are interesting and have something going on that you will not want to miss.

Comments: The art tries to show emotions but it does not quite make it. The drawings are done to plain. It needs to be more focused.
Archie and Veronica are having problems from being apart. Now Mr. Lodge plans to take full advantage of it.
You will never guess who decides to help out Veronica against her dad. Also this same person helps Archie to try to get back with Veronica. It is a surprise in one way and totally expected in another.
Jughead really shines this issue. This is what being a best friend is all about. The emotions are high and the story so well written.
Veronica, Archie and Jughead together now this is a team supreme. You will find yourself almost cheering for them. Also waiting with bated breath as Veronica goes back to the banquet. She does the unexpected which is totally expected by now.
The happy couple are a happy couple. Archie and Veronica were meant for each other.
Now what is going on with the Blossom twins?
The story is so striking and powerful.

Comments: Here we look at the relationship between Archie and Reggie. Archie really does hate him. Archie is a good guy and Reggie well he is a bully, a prankster, and all around fink.
Archie and Betty get their project car a Mustang up and running after eight years. Archie does find a way to mess up even with Betty driving. These two make a good team on the car. While Archie and Veronica make a good team in the romance department. It is a nice change seeing them all getting along so well.
The art when shown in the distance is lacking detail.
The build up to the big event is done well enough. The cliffhanger does give you a feeling of dread. You will be back to see how this story arc plays out.

Comments: Jughead as a waiter puts his own take and style into the job. He has a unique insight into people. You will love his way of doing the job especially if you love a good burger.
Jughead and others get a call. The call has them dropping everything else to respond. There is a build up of suspense that will have you glued to the page.
Veronica gets a lesson in business and a brand new gorgeous sporty car which is forgotten when she gets the call.
The emotional barrage here will overwhelm you. Whatever you were expecting this is not it. The implications will be far reaching. This will bring a tear to your eye.

Comments: Betty is in the hospital and its not looking good. Right from page one you can just feel the emotions, the love everyone has for Betty and their concern.
We look at Betty and when she first came into people's lives. How she affected them. She always always improved them.
If your a fan of the characters especially Betty there will be no way you can read this comic without a tear in your eye.
The end to this issue fills you with both joy and fear.
The art is gorgeously done showing the fears and emotions of all the characters.
Archie Comics has a hit with this story-line. You will not be able to tear yourself away and will be waiting for the next issue.

Comments: Betty just woke up from her coma but things are not all rosy. This story is so sad and depressing. Poor Betty and all the town is hurting.
Archie wants to help cover Betty's volunteering he though does as Archie does. Usually this might be funny but with the seriousness of this issue it is just there.
Betty now awake is ready to face the world and very high odds against her. Bet on Betty though.
Your heart will reach out to Betty and it will be breaking but still full of hope for her. If you can read this issue without a tear in your eye you have no heart.
Betty Cooper has all the support she needs from her friends and family. Yet it is her heart and will that will carry her through this ordeal. Betty Cooper just does not give up.

Comments: We see Betty in her wheelchair for the first time. She does bounce back fast. Still though her life has changed.
Things in Riverdale have changed and not for the best.
Betty wants to do it all on her own.She is strong but everyone can use some help and support even her. She says "But thank you" a lot. To much. Than w see it and it will break your heart to see how much Betty is really suffering inside. She misses Archie.
Poor Archie he feels useless. He is not allowed to see Betty. You can see how much he cares about her and loves her every tie he is shown.
As Betty sees that Archie does care it lights up her face. It will make you happy for her.
If you can read this comic with a dry eye you do not need a doctor cause your already dead.

Comments: The art is to vague, it needs more definition to it. The characters are there but they need more personality in the illustrations. It does improve as the comic goes along.
Archie has only one thing on his mind. It is interfering with his relationship with Veronica. Talking about one girl and nothing else can cause your girlfriend to feel forgotten when that person is not her.
Aw here we get a look at Jughead and Betty's friendship. It is as strong as any of the others.
Jughead goes to bat for Betty. If you ever wanted to know the true meaning of friendship read this.
The emotions are so strong here. Betty's accident has affected people in ways you would not have expected.
