All-New Classic Archie: Your Pal Archie #1

Jul 6, 2017

The first issue delivers on the promise of updating the series while still managing to capture the feel of a classic ARCHIE comic. Nothing is sacrificed, and everything is gained.

All-New Classic Archie: Your Pal Archie #2

Aug 17, 2017

YOUR PAL ARCHIE #2 is as rich as Archie's winning lottery ticket and as sweet as Reggie post-head injury. The characters are enjoyable, and the art is keeping in tradition with Archie Comics through and through.

May 24, 2017

BEN REILLY THE SCARLET SPIDER #2 tries to be filled with the angst of the character, but tends to read as a bit more childish than deep.

Black Panther: World of Wakanda #6

Apr 19, 2017

BLACK PANTHER WORLD OF WAKANDA #6 is definitely a shift from the previous issues, but it sets up an interesting return-to-crime fighting narrative instead of just entering into it.
