    Mark Waid has always scripted thoroughly entertaining issues but number nine has an extra special touch to it. Perhaps it has to do with Archie having not to prove himself, deflect torment from his rivals or overcome any financial hardships. He's finally given a moment in the sun and Andrews is basking in it. Additionally, issue nine may be Veronica Fish's best work yet during her stint on Archie. Again I must bring up the aforementioned chapter three " Veg Oil " as a prime example of Fish's impeccable talent for encapsulating the wrenching emotion between Archie and Betty. Read Full Review

    'Archie' is not just great for an Archies Comic, not just great for an all-ages book, but a great comic book period. Waid adds layers to well-known characters and Fish infuses them with personality and passion. Archie's love life has never been this involving and authentic before. In an industry that can make fans cynical and frustrated, 'Archie' has staked its corner of the world where comics are still a joy to read. Read Full Review

    Bounding Into Comics - Elliott Cole Jun 26, 2016

    Archie #9 is a triumph of masterful storytelling. It is a breath of fresh air as a more relatable and down to earth book than most of the action driven comic landscape. Every aspect of this book screams quality and deserves recognition. Only the most jaded of readers won't find something to delight in here. Everyone should be reading this book. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Josh Begley Jul 7, 2016

    Archie #9 is another excellent issue in a series that I look forward to reading every month. The writing, the art, and the colors are all excellent and work together to create a singular effect, and you can really tell that this is a creative team that understands the medium and how to use it to its fullest advantage. Seriously, I know I say this every month, but if you aren't reaching Archie, you're doing yourself a disservice. Read Full Review

    This is certainly a series that continues to deliver great content. Archie #9 gives us another stellar time and it tons of fun to read. We also get the usual classic story, this time from 1963 and it's about Archie being a pain in Mr. Lodge's neck while trying to date his daughter. A very relatable piece given the current nature of the story but even on its own just a good read. I'll keep reading this series as long as I'm able to and recommend it to anyone who is a fan of these characters and some lighthearted storytelling. Read Full Review

    This is still 100% an Archie book, even while feeling like something entirely new. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge Jun 27, 2016

    Archie #9 is a big turning point for Veronica. Before she was a sassy foil for Betty and very much defined by her relationship with Archie. However, now Mark Waid, Veronica Fish, Andre Szymanowicz, and Jen Vaughn show her in a new and surprisingly flattering light that allows her to stand apart from Archie as her own character, though the ginger did provide a strong push toward the development. Relationships are all about compromise and now with Archie #9, Veronica is finally at a place where she can comfortably do that for the man she loves. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Jun 24, 2016

    "Archie" #9 reminds us why this title has transformed from something that most readers would easily dismiss into a must-read each issue. Following a great closing scene to remind us of Betty's place in Archie's life, I'm itching to read the next issue. If you haven't been reading "Archie" yet, give it a whirl, but be warned: you'll get hooked awfully fast, and that's a good thing. Read Full Review
