"The Archies' Rocking World Tour," part 4: "Close to the Borderline." The Archies, Bingos, Pussycats, and Madhouse Glads' tour concludes in the great white north, Canada! The bands enjoy the end of their time together as they trek across the country from Montreal, Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver. What will happen to the bands once the tour is over? Will the Bingos and the Glads use their newfound fame from the Archies tour, or will they go the smaller, indie route?  What will become of Archie's relationship with Valerie? And his relationship with Amisha? And, of course, his relationship with Betty and Veronica? There's still a few surprises left as Archie and the gang return to school. Riverdale High, watch out!

    Archie #653 is another great chapter in the classic teen drama that proves you dont always have to use sex and violence to make a book compelling. Its not all going to be rosy in Riverdale, but Id still be able to hand this comic to my eight-year-old niece to read. Thats honestly refreshing. Read Full Review

    The issue also features a nice cross-section of characters from the Archieverse, and is most definitely something different from the norm. "Archie" #653 can be enjoyed by existing fans, as well as skeptics who might think that Archie comics feature nothing more than Archie mindlessly chasing Betty and/or Veronica around Riverdale High School. It's fun, it's a little different, and there's even a thing or two to be learned, for those who are up for it. Read Full Review
