Comments: This issue is narrated by Vader. Yes Vader is Reggie's dog. Reggie is shown as a stuck up guy but one in some ways you will pity. He just wants people to love him. His way of dealing with rejection does paint him as a creep or jerk at times. He does not deal well at all with being upstaged either.
Reggie is not all bad he adopted a rescue dog. He did so for the companionship.
Reggie and Archie do have a relationship it is just not a good one.
"Screen Test" Art by George Frese from Archie's Rival Reggie # 1. The art is classic style and looks gorgeous. Reggie and Archie as usual are fighting over Veronica. Things turn out as they often do and things do not go well for poor Reggie. You will laugh a bit at his situation and smile at Archie's.
Reggie and his dog Vader make a awesome dynamic duo.

Comments: Here we look at Reggie and Archie's relationship. It turns out Betty has been egging Reg on for most of their lives. She has been taunting him. Betty is responsible in part for how Reggie treats others. Betty is a big part of why Reggie is the way he is. She is not all Miss Nice.
The art is more realistic than the classic style of Archie comics.
Reggie now is definitely not Mr. Nice guy. We see the hatching of a plan that will cause trouble for all involved. Reggie is a mean guy. He is just misguided and has never had the support that others have.
The way Vader Reggie's dog narrates the story gives it a unique and fun style.
The Classic back up story is from Archie's Rival Reggie # 1 from 1949. "The Jokers" by George Frese. Reggie we see here is not all that bad. He can be reasoned with to.

Comments: Having the dog Vader narrating the story never gets old. Vader sees things differently then most others do. He sees things as his master Reggie would like them to be.
Reggie and Moose have a sort of friendship going. Reggie now has plans and they involve him and Midge being together. He is always scheming.
Having Vader start to question Reggie's judgement and than retracting it does show his loyalty to Reggie. One creature does love Reggie besides Reggie.
The art is actually very good showcasing these characters.
This issue we learn a lot about Moose Mason. He is not everything you think he is and he is a lot more than you think he is.

Comments: Reggie has a plan. He is trying to get everything he wants and get rid of what he does not want. So far so good but you just know something will end up not going as planned. Betty it seems is looking out for Archie still.
Vader Reggie's dog is a cute little thing. He is very supportive of Reggie. Here is this story is the first time he has disagreed with Reggie.
Wow you will not believe the turn this story takes with Moose. You have got to see this for yourself.
Reggie tries to hard to be a bad guy. He has no need to be. Vader loves him. Some girls like him. He has money, a car and looks. He should be happy. He always wants more though.
Vader is the best dog in comics today.

Comments: Reggie is showing so much concern over his dog Vader. Most people think Reggie has no emotions well here we see that is wrong.
The three guys that beat up Reggie well they are in a football game against Reggie's friend Moose. You know as the game starts the three guys should run.
As the story goes on you get a feeling of dread. Your heart will go out to Vader who is one hundred percent loyal to Reggie. You will also feel sorry for Reggie.
Betty shows some character as we see her treating Reggie as he deserves. It is not what you think either.
Aw if this story does not bring a tear to your eye you must be dead. Seeing Reggie in such a vulnerable state and so caring you realize he is not so different than the other teens.
Archie and the gang really do come together for Reggie. Betty as well and we see Reggie and Betty well maybe something might be starting with them. Anything is possible in Riverdale.
