STORY – The story begins at the end of summer just before the main characters start off there senior year in high school. I’m not a huge fan of the Archie Comics line of books, but I know that Betty and Veronica are at times at odds with each other over the heart of Archie. It appears to be heading down that road because there are secrets being kept from each other in this budding friendship. To me, the story is a bit slow and slightly tedious. that being said I think that this book may appeal to teenage girls and may be an important book for that age range but for a 35-year-old male as myself, it doesn’t really appeal to me. I wish there was a little more humor as well.
ART – The artwork in this book leaves a lot to be desired, to be honest. the linework isn’t consistent, and the colors are flat and bland. There is a sequence where one of the characters gets dizzy that is somewhat visually interesting but that’s about it for me.
