Archie in "Game of Phones": Winter is coming. A ten-year long winter, which means ten years of school without summer vacation! In a world of many kingdoms, the noble Archie Starch lives with his family and his pal Snowhead in the Kingdom of Riveros. Meanwhile, in the Kingdom of Lodgister, the wealthy princess Veronica Lodgister's greatest desire is to be this year's Prom Queen. Her main rival for the throne is a new girl in school, Princess Betty Cooparian.  In yet another kingdom dwell the Braggians, with the pompous, sneaky Prince Reggie who is determined to do whatever it takes to become Prom King-even if that means faking his way to the top. Archie is ready to call his bluff and challenges him to a battle of the kingdoms on the Riveros High Football field. Which Kingdom will preside over all?

    As far as Archie parodies go, I really loved this play on Game of Thrones. I like that DeCesare used something contemporary to lampoon, which to me demonstrates that Archie is continually modernizing a nearly 75 year old brand. Most of all, I thought it was just plain fun, which is something that the comic market can use more of. I don't know what the future holds with Archie's upcoming reboot, but I hope they keep these fun parodies as part of their stable. Read Full Review

    Archie #664: Game of Phones is a fun melding of Game of Thrones with Archie. It's very tongue-in-cheek and silly and made for a good read. It's not quite as solid as the previous issue because the jokes rely a bit too much on references to the book/show and the fun of the anachronistic dialogue and repurposed characters, but it's definitely fun.

    If you're a fan of the Archie Universe you'll probably excuse this issue as a miscalculation. If this is your first Archie in a while you'll likely be left scratching your head, to which I say "try them again next month!" Read Full Review

    It's a short, but fun take on life in Riveros when playing the game of phones is playing for the title of prom king and queen. Read Full Review
