Synopsis: (from the web site) Travel ‘round the globe with Archie and the gang! See the world–from The Archies on tour in the Philippines, to Raj’s documentary in India, a quick layover with Reggie in Rome and finally B&V getting some royal treatment in Canada!
It’s a classic Archie comic and as you would expect it is far from a travelogue. Regardless, it’s fun to see that the new Reggie art isn’t confusing him with Jughead like the old, old days.
Page to page continuity is just painful.
It fits the flavor of the classic series anthologies. The art has some small issues which is disappointing and even if I was an Archie collector I would be hard pressed to call it a must-have.
I am giving this one three of five stars.
Get it at your local comic shop or go online.
