    Comics: The Gathering - TalkNerdy2Me May 3, 2017

    The art here isn’t appreciably changed much since last issue. I still find myself wishing that the characters’ faces were less angular and a bit more conventionally pretty. (To be expected from a Dan Parent fan, I guess...) That being said, I really enjoyed the way Andre Szymanowicz used pastel backgrounds to evoke the look and feel of the original Breakfast Club film. The purple washes in the first few pages are particularly on-point. I’m not sure quite how the writers are going to handle this book meeting up/crossing over with the show’s timeline, but I do know I’m absolutely along for the ride. Read Full Review

    Archie fans"and Riverdale fans especially"are going to love this issue. It's a great way to tell an entertaining story while still bringing attention to the TV show. At the back of the book, we get reacquainted with the cast of the live action series, which is a nice way to share mediums. If you haven't already, head to your local comic shop and give this series a read. Read Full Review
