    The interpersonal drama reaches a breaking point for four different relationships, a familiar face may be gone for good and Archie finally deals with some of his guilt. All in all, a good read. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Chris Terry Jan 2, 2019

    Archie: 1941 has been a great mini so far. This series focuses on the wrong things but still manages to get a few solid moments in as the series rolls into the finale. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - John Schaidler Jan 4, 2019

    Despite top-notch inks and colors that continue to deliver a wonderfully authentic retro aesthetic, "Archie 1941" #4 feels uninspired, slowly trudging toward the finish line of this 5-issue miniseries. Read Full Review

    I wish sometimes that I wasn't such a completist so I wouldn't read these mediocre, pretentious Archie books drawn in the new style. There are a few good titles among them, but this ain't one of them. Five issues isn't enough to tell a decent story about Archie going from Riverdale High student to missing in action, so in place of that we get lots of pointless talk from the characters back in Riverdale when we should be concentrating on Archie (I'd say Reggie too, but he's barely even there).
