There is no one more loved, revered, admired and adored in Riverdale than...  Reggie Mantle? Well, at least Reggie doesn't think there's anyone as loved and admired as himself. And his best friend can back that idea up-his best friend, of course, being his dog, Vader. The unstoppable duo is known around town for pulling the funniest pranks, getting the hottest dates and throwing the best parties. And if anyone even dares to compete with them, there is going to be hell to pay. Come take a look at the life of your hero, the handsome, hilarious Reggie Mantle.

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams Nov 11, 2016

    Initially, Ill freely admit that this one felt like a bit of a tough sell to me. I mean, who wants to read a series about a bully bullying people and generally being horrible to everyone? Thankfully however, DeFalcos clever twist on the narrative and Jarrell and Fitzpatricks bright, lively artwork make this an absolute pleasure to read, and while its not quite reinventing the wheel, it definitely does a great job of breathing some new life into what was previously a fairly stagnant, one-dimensional character. Definitely well worth a look. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Tom Guilfoyle Nov 12, 2016

    OverallReggie and Me is a great addition to the ever expanding Archie-verse, with a creative team that knows and understands the character. Where this tale goes, only time will tell. Read Full Review

    The extras in Reggie and Me #1 include an introduction to classic Reggie by Tom DeFalco (first appearance was in 1942), a classic comic referenced in the introduction, some other titles in the Archie series, a tease of issue #2, a slew of variant covers, and an advertisement for Riverdale, a new live-action series debuting on The CW, based on characters from the Archie comic books.

    Doom Rocket - Courtney Ryan Nov 18, 2016

    Reggie and Me #1 isn't quite the tour de force that The Godfather is, but I doubt anyone will be too peeved about that. Defalco adds nuance to a bully trope that's been stagnant for nearly 80 years. That alone makes this series worthwhile for Archie fans. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Justin Wood Dec 2, 2016

    No, Reggie and Me didn't change my world, nor was it every likely to, but it told a story without feeling desperate to be different which is not what I've come to expect from the rebooted Archie line. The matter-of-factness about it made it contradictorily refreshing, never feeling confused, annoyed, or overly aware a panel was likely designed to be retweeted. If Archie scratches your itch, this is probably one of the better attempts at doing a standalone Reggie story as we could expect, even if it doesn't break new ground. I don't really expect any more, but even if you do, there is nothing about this that immediately precludes giving it a chance to impress you. Read Full Review
