"Let's Hear it for Harper." Veronica's cousin Harper is coming to Riverdale, where she's considering attending Riverdale High. When she arrives, they see something they weren't expecting: she is physically disabled. However it doesn't take long to see that her disabilities don't hold her back, but instead add to her dynamic personality! Harper teaches the gang how something that you think can hold you back can make you that much stronger - all while being decked out in the most fashion forward wheelchair ever seen!

    The introduction to Harper Lodge may come off as a little heavy-handed, and as someone who spends a lot of time thinking about representation and diversity in comics, it may seem unsophisticated. But the reality is, Archie Comics is for everyone, not just the most astute or exposed among us, and the ability for all of us to come together once a month (or more) to follow the characters we love and meet brand new ones with the same potential is a tribute to diversity, too. Heres hoping fans from all paths in life get to meet over a Harper Lodge solo book sometime soon. Ive got my $3 ready for issue #1. Read Full Review

    There's a new character in Riverdale. Harper has a disability, but she shows that everyone is important. Just because someone has a wheelchair, it doesn't mean they're not a regular person. It was a great message, but it was a little forceful at times. I have a cousin in a wheelchair so it's nice to see a character in one brought into ARCHIE comics. I hope we see more of Harper in future issues. Read Full Review
