    This final issue is great in almost every way, and proves that this is an arc you definitely need to read. Read Full Review

    It's really sort of a shame to see the comics set up to emulate Katy's already-cancelled TV show, but it's a breezy, pleasant journey getting there. Read Full Review

    Archie #713 has some really good art and coloring, but falls a bit short when it comes to the story. The finale to the "Archie & Katy Keene" ends in a way that's easy to predict, and feels rushed. Read Full Review

    As perfectly plastic as the characters appear. Really just not worth the time. The fashion is still... so bad.

    I really hope this tie-in to the Riverdale spin-off was worth it. Probably not since it was canceled. I was sticking with this arc because I figured Nick Spencer was going to come back afterwards, since it's clear there's way more to the story he was telling. But I've looked, and there's not another Archie issue in the foreseeable future (as far back as October), and there's nothing in this issue that gives any hint about what's happening with this title next. Is it canceled? On hiatus? What? This arc has been lackluster to say the least. It's a shame, since I was really enjoying Archie before this. I hope it comes back, with Nick Spencer writing it, but I guess for now this is it.
