Archie's met a lot of people in his over-80 years of existence. Including meeting himself a few times! But now Archie's about to meet someone very unexpected: the Riverdale version of himself! That's right, see what happens when Archie and all his pals'n'gals in his good ol' hometown of Riverdale come face-to-face with their slightly more serious television counterparts in this hilarious one-shot by Emmy-nominated writer Daniel Kibblesmith (Loki, Black Panther Vs. Deadpool, Netflix's Inside Job) and fan-favorite Archie artists Pat and Tim Kennedy (Jughead: the Hunger, Life with Archie)!

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson May 12, 2022

    In between the meta-jokes, the biting the CW-hand-that-feeds-you and Jughead mocking his TV doppelganger, we get a cute, old-school Archie tale that will probably annoy the hell out of any Riverdale fans who pick it up. Read Full Review
