Basic training has begun and Archie's surprised with a familiar face-Reggie Mantle!

    Comic Crusaders - David Howard Nov 28, 2018

    In short, this is an excellent snapshot of an important part of American history using Archie and Riverdale as a medium to tell the story. It is impressive in its presentation of the human emotions during this time period. I recommend this book to those who want something different and aren't afraid to delve into this finely written drama. Read Full Review
