    This is the first time I've reviewed an all-ages book or a book geared more towards children. As an adult, I can tell you I truly enjoyed everything about this issue. Yes, I'm a huge KISS fan, but all of that aside, the issue was a ton of fun and kept me smiling from the first to last page. It has a great sense of humor that kids and adults will enjoy. The band KISS seems to fit well in to the world of Riverdale both story wise and stylistically. The story was simple, but a lot of fun at the same time. The only real downside is that if you are looking for something a bit more complex, then this book is not for you. It's the most fun I've had with a comic in quite some time, and even if you're not a KISS fan, you'll still love this issue of ARCHIE. I highly recommend this issue. Read Full Review

    There's little to be said about Dan Parent's art. It's clean and simple in the way all Archie comics are. Parent does a good job of adapting the look of The Demon, the Starchild, and the rest for that aesthetic. One area that could be addressed is the colors, which are far too bright and cheery for a story that takes place at night and features monsters, zombies, and Gene Simmons' tongue. Also worth noting is that if you have the opportunity to score Francesco Francavilla's variant cover, take it. Archie has never rocked harder. Read Full Review
