The all-new ARCHIE adventure continues! Superstar writer Mark Waid teams up with the best and brightest artists in comics to bring a modern take to the legendary Riverdale cast of characters. The book will captures the bite and hilarious edge of Archie's original tales in a modern, forward-looking manner, while still retaining the character's all-ages appeal. If classic Archie is a Saturday morning cartoon, this new series is prime time!

It took me awhile to pick up the second book in this series and I didn’t love it as much as the first one. I find Veronica to be really irritating and I feel so awful for poor Betty. I was always a Betty fan as a kid and it always felt like she got the short end of the stick when it came to Archie. I would like to see less of Archie chasing Veronica around and more of Betty and Jughead. Im excited to see Cheryl Blossom is in the next issue and I am thinking of picking up Jughead’s books as well. I really want to see the Jughead and Sabrina team up.

I was also a little sad that Fiona Staples didn’t do the artwork in the second book. She is one of my favourite artists and even though the art is this volume was good, I still prefer hers.
