    Archie: 1941 continues to be an amazing experience. Even in this sophomore issue, you can feel everything the team is going for, and it should only get better. Read Full Review

    Critical Blast - RJ Carter Oct 17, 2018

    Peter Krause does a top-notch job of rendering the characters and the town of Riverdale in a way that evokes the era in all aspects, bringing Waid & Augustyn's story to a vivid yet somber life. While the first issue of this series had its issues, it looks to me like this second issue has course-corrected -- at least enough for this reviewer to give the rest of this 5-issue series a look-see.

    I think the biggest thing hurting the book is that its very niche. I, however, am looking forward to the rest of the series and can't wait to see what decisions they make. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Oct 17, 2018

    The second issue continues the excellence of the debut and is a slow build up. There's some emotional highs and lows and sincere feel to it all. It's not an over the top patriotic spin. It's a fantastic series so far that mixes real history with characters we love. Read Full Review

    Good artwork does not make up for shallow storytelling and characterization. Read Full Review

    A handful of striking visuals boost this otherwise bland experience, but a well framed silhouette isn't nearly enough to salvage this miniseries. Read Full Review
