+ Pull List

From Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and the writers of the new CW series Riverdale comes the first issue of the must-read, brand new, ongoing comic series! Set in the universe of the TV series, the Riverdale comic offers a bold, subversive take on Archie, Betty, Veronica, Josie & the Pussycats, and their friends, exploring small-town life and the darkness and weirdness bubbling beneath Riverdale's wholesome facade. Features interior art by up-and-coming artist Alitha Martinez (Black Panther).

    Comic Crusaders - Robert Anderegg Mar 15, 2017

    I wasn't blown away by any aspect of it, but I had nothing to be disappointed in. If you do not watch the show, this comic will give spoilers to that, but if you don't care they are still fun to read. If you do watch the show, this will only add to your appreciation of what Aguirre-Sacasa is doing for the brand. Also, I know this may be a bit of a tangent, but if Riverdale lasts a while, I'd LOVE to see them incorporate his Afterlife with Archie series somehow, blending in Sabrina and Josie's involvement. It would be epic, I promise you. Anyway, back to the comic. I may not read this every month, but because it is designed as plot filler for the shows, I'm confident that I could pick up an issue after missing one or two and not feel at a loss (granted I'm also watching the show).

    An above average companion piece with engaging art that will work for fans of the show, even if it falls short of justifying its own existence. Read Full Review
