The art is handled by Dan Parent who seems to be the big man on campus in the Archie universe. I'm not a fan of his portrayal of Archie character. He lacks the rounded figures and soft edges that makes them enjoyable to watch. Inker Koslowski's lines are too thick in many places and it overpowers the work, making it too simplified. Simple but rich artwork like this can exists without overtly thick lines. I like anything by the late Mike Parobeck for example. Read Full Review

If you want to feel good, pick up this book. If you want to make someone else feel good, or maybe a little more understanding, then throw this book their way. Wholesome is just the start of this book. Read Full Review
