    The tagline for this arc was "everything changes" and I wonder what that means. Can we expect darker, more realistic stories from now on? Will the fun and lighthearted story telling be no more? While I personally don't mind this it's really not what I pick up and issue of Archie for in the long run. Sure, I can accept more series stories being told but in the end when I put down an issue I want to be left feeling happy, that my favorite characters overcame their issues or at least grew as people in a positive way. After reading Archie #22 I was left sad and frustrated. The story as a whole was predictable, even to how it ended which I won't spoil, but no one is in a happy place at any point in this issue or the previous two issues which is a bummer.

    Archie #22 builds up all the emotion needed for one dramatic reveal that will change Riverdale and Betty's life forever. This issue showcases one of the most important aspects of Archie - Riverdale as a community - so that when one person suffers the whole town suffers. "Over the Edge" continues to be one of the series' strongest arcs as it gives permanence to the normally light-hearted world of Archie. Read Full Review

    In the end, this story arc may not go down as the greatest of all time, however, Waid and Woods have crafted a story that will have an immediate impact on the residents of Riverdale. And more importantly, it lives up to its "Everything changes" proclamation in the never-changing world of Archie Comics. Read Full Review

    I'm sure that there's going to be some returning readers to this series, which hey, that's cool and a good thing. I'm not one of them. The drama feels superficial, and while I appreciate this rebooted Archie, it's still not for me. Read Full Review
