Betty and Veronica #2

Story: Jamie Lee Rotante
Line Art: Sandra Lanz
Color: Kelly Fitzpatrick
Letters: Jack Morelli
Publisher: Archie Comics


Betty and Veronica have to meet their promises for their high school years. They plan to go to the same college and they would keep their promises until the end of the school year, not letting things get in their way.

In this particular comic, it seems Veronica has been sidelined by a job offer at a magazine, also Betty is in the midst of doing a lot of humanitarian work including building houses for the homeless. In the midst of that Betty is also trying to help Moose get his grades up so he can attend college. Veronica has also received another tempting offer from dad, Mr. Lodge...

The Mighty Crusaders vol 1

I have what the kids today call “a sad”. As near as I can tell, The Mighty Crusaders may be the end of Dark Circle Comics. Neither their website nor their Facebook page has been updated in some time (like, before this collection came out). I get it. The Fox didn’t do much, the planned Web series never materialized, Hangman died without closure, The Sheild was great, and the TPB (at least) said continued in The Mighty Crusaders. The only thing that seems to have had any legs, and rightfully so, was The Black Hood. So knowing that no matter how amazing this book was going to be, there won’t be more sucks.

In writer Ian Flynn’s introduction, he says that The Mighty Crusaders is a spiritual successor to New Crusaders (put out under the previous Red Circle digital imprint) but not a direct sequ...

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.

ARCHIE #700

Story by Nick Spencer

Letters by Jack Morelli

THE DEAL: Issue #700. Seven. Hundred. That should say everything about the staying power of Riverdale’s eponymous hero and his crew of pals. They’re all here, just like always … well, not exactly. Jughead’s still eating burgers like there’s a beef shortage, but now he does it as a restaurant critic for the local paper; Reggie is living like the world spins around him, fresh from football camp; Veronica and Betty have spent their summers thinking about their ginger crush – actually, that hasn’t changed since issue #1. Seriously, there have got to be better options in that town than one flighty, freckled boy.

They’d better hope so, anyway. Change is coming to town, and she’s got some secrets under her sleeve.

THE GOOD...
