    Overall this is a funny issue. When Archie is on his way to meet Cheryl, he's in a molasses barrel that's rolling down a hill. We get no context of how or why, but it's there. And frankly it's so absurd it works. I'm glad the character has fundamentally stayed the same since the reboot, it's like coming back to your home after it's been remodelled. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Ashley Gibbs May 29, 2017

    Archie #17 is a nice way to wrap up these past few issues about Cheryl Blossom. She's landed in town and even if she loses this battle she's certainly not done being a trickster. Right now her brother isn't given much to do but be her sidekick but I am hoping that changes in future stories. The last few pages talk about the Riverdale TV show and offers a nice character guide. I must lament the loss of the classic Archie stories that usually ended these issues previously but alas, this trend is no more. Either way, a very good read that I recommend to fans and certainly not an issue to skip. Read Full Review

    Even though it occasionally hits on some real teen/young people concerns, like how long is too long to wait to text someone back if you're romantically interested in them,Archie#17 is mostly stylized wackinessfrom Mark Waid, Joe Eisma, and Andre Szymanowicz, who uses some overpowering reds in Cheryl Blossom's scenes. It's pure comedic melodramatic fun. Read Full Review

    'Archie' #17 finds Cheryl in Riverdale trying to seduce Archie to get back at Veronica. It's a fun twisty romp full of melodrama and laughs. Waid and Eisma continue making Archie relevant in 2017 and worth every penny. Read Full Review

    While the extended bout of courtship has its amusing moments"Jug Handle is as perfect a Blossomization as could be"the initial lack of teeth leaves the read feeling light, right up until the book's final page. Read Full Review
