Archie Graphic Novel Volume 1 Review...


America’s Favorite Teenager, Archie Andrews, is reborn in the pages of this must-have graphic novel collecting the first six issues of the comic book series that everyone is talking about. Meet Riverdale High teen Archie, his oddball, food-loving best friend Jughead, girl-next-door Betty and well-to-do snob Veronica Lodge as they embark on a modern reimagining of the beloved Archie world. It’s all here: the love triangle, friendship, humor, charm and lots of fun – but with a decidedly modern twist.

Brought to you by some of the masters of the comic book genre, including writer Mark Waid and the all-star lineup of artists: Fiona Staples, Annie Wu and Veronica Fish, the first volume of ARCHIE presents readers with a new take on the beloved Archie Comics concepts while retaining the best elements from the company’s 75 years of history. ARCHIE VOL. 1 collects ARCHIE #1-6 and features bonus content including scripts, sketches, variant covers and the full first issue of the all new JUGHEAD series by acclaimed writer Chip Zdarsky and artist Erica Henderson.

REVIEW!!!

This volume starts with Archie and Betty recently breaking up and ends with Archie and Veronica starting something up.  

Now I have to admit that when I bought these I knew they were new versions of the comics however, I thought they were based more around the show Riverdale.  This comic is nothing like either of them and I honestly don't know how I really feel about them at all.  I did not let that stop me from finishing.

I did enjoy the art work and the unique way they developed some of the characters.  I really liked seeing all of the bonus features included in the book.  

3.5 stars
