    Stuff is going down in Riverdale, and it's only going to get worse when Cheryl Blossom makes her debut next issue. In the meantime, buy this comic and read it. This is a masterclass in how to craft an intelligent, grounded story rooted in real human emotions and actions. And it's dang funny, too. Dr. Josh gives this an" Read Full Review

    Heroes Direct - Adam Fitch Sep 22, 2016

    The artist, Thomas Pitilli, has opted for a messier (albeit calculated) approach to linework – something we haven't seen much of in Archie Comics. It suits the storyline well as relationships are scrappy and a bit shaky at the moment, so everything's a bit out of place in the world of Riverdale. Emotions are displayed wonderfully by expert face work. Read Full Review

    Waid continues to write with all the insight and tenderness of an awkward teenager proving there's virtually nothing he can't write. 'Archie' is a great comic with classic beloved characters and a modern twist. He keeps creating multi-dimensional characters out of long-established figures, finding new depths to their personalities. 'Archie' is more accessible and entertaining than ever. Read Full Review

    Issue #12 is itself a great example of Waid's range. The various events range from slapstick funny to relatable to downright affecting, culminating in an end that very cleverly opens the door for new characters to join the fray. Read Full Review

    The series is still great as always, but I can't help but feel like they could find a better artist. Pitilli's art isn't bad, but it always looks like a rough sketch. The jokes were funny still, but some characters are a little too dramatic. Sayid was kind of a jerk in this issue.
