It's Jughead versus all of Riverdale in a race to the finish! A "video game go-kart race to the finish," that is. But it's still exciting. When Reggie convinces everyone to bet that the winner will be King For A Day and everyone has to do what he says, what could possibly go wrong? Well, "Reggie then winning that bet and being in charge of everyone" springs immediately to mind. Spoiler Alert: That is totally a thing that happens! This start of a new arc features the following: Pals! Conflict! And making mistakes on the internet which no one never ever forgets!

    This is a great issue that brings a lot of fun and nostalgic themes to light: staying in on the weekend to play video games, starting a garage band that you want to go somewhere but are really just doing for the fun of it, being around people you've known forever, youth, innocence, if I go on I might start to cry. Any and all fans of Archie need to read this issue, and most definitely keep an eye out on the CW, January 26th, for the premiere of Riverdale! Read Full Review
