    Spencer crafts a story that takes all the drama of Riverdale and wraps it in a more subdued, but thoroughly interesting, package. Read Full Review

    "Archie" #701 does a great job exploring Archie's post-summer break status quo. Read Full Review

    This is a really engaging plot for an Archie comic.

    I'm glad to say the writing in this book is better than Waid's Archie 1941. The plot smacks too much of Riverdale pandering, but I'm pretty interested to see where the mystery goes. The Archie/Sabrina section isn't as good, but it might surprise us later by tying into the mystery. Marguerite Sauvage's art is beautiful, but the way she draws Archie and Jughead is really offputting. They're unattractive, and they look so not like comics Archie and Jughead, it's hard to see them as the same characters. It's easier to accept that kind of deviation in Riverdale where live actors are involved.
