    For those keeping score, Archie just hit its nineteenth home run. This comic never fails to delight in its humanity, its intelligence, and its dedication to storytelling. It says a great deal that a group of characters that have been around for seventy years manages not only to remain relevant, but to continue telling excellent stories. Dr. Josh gives this an".

    Comics: The Gathering - TalkNerdy2Me Apr 21, 2017

    The only thing that's tempered my enjoyment of this lighthearted tale is the knowledge of what's coming. It's been all over the Internet lately that the next three issues of this book may very well kill off a major character. We don't know for sure, and folks rarely stay dead for long in comics, but Waid has at the very least made me care enough about all the folks in this cast that I would hate to see any of them go.

    Capeless Crusader - Jeremy Radick Apr 18, 2017

    Capturing the classic vibe of the franchise with a modern approach, Archie #19 is the best of both worlds, both funny and light-hearted even as it manages to be insightful about its characters. The humor is character based and peppered with snarky one-liners and well-executed sarcasm. And while all the characters are still recognizably Archie and the gang, Mark Waid and Pete Woods deepen their interactions with more specific and nuanced dialogue. Archie #19 is still an Archie Comic; it's never going to be "Maus," but it never should try to be. What it should be is engaging and fun melodrama for teens and those who remember their teens, and in that way, it's perfectly fun. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Ashley Gibbs Jun 4, 2017

    If you are a fan of Archie and Veronica as a couple then you will probably enjoy Archie #19. Their affection for one another seems very genuine and organic and I'm happy that they're back on track. The last part of the story features Cheryl and Jason Blossom who seemed to have stumbled upon a family secret, an interesting turn of events. At the end, readers are treated to a preview of Big Moose One-Shot which is a great read. I fully recommend it if you're a fan of the character or just want some fun stories that aren't focused on Archie and his love life for a change. Read Full Review

    Pete Woods continues to prove a solid fit on art, his loose style playing particularly well with the comedic physicality of Waid's script. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Alexander Jones Apr 24, 2017

    "Archie" delivers a good story marred by small blemishes and a lack of ambition in the series' 19th installment. Read Full Review
