“Deep-diving into the characters and their parents from a whole...

REGGIE AND ME #1 launches this December from DeFalco & Jarrell.

We’ve been trying to warn you about Reggie Mantle for the last seven months on our Twitter account but it wasn’t enough.

Now you’ll all see exactly the type of person we’ve been dealing with when REGGIE AND ME #1 launches on December 7th!

The next hit New Riverdale series, REGGIE AND ME, arrives this Winter from the side-splitting creative team of Tom DeFalco, Sandy Jarrell, Kelly Fitzpatrick, and Jack Morelli.

“It’s a great honor to be paired with a dynamic and fun artist like Sandy on one of my favorite characters,” says series writer Tom DeFalco.

“Reggie Mantle has been called a self-aggrandizing egotist, a sinister super-villain, a merciless monster and worse, but his dog loves him...

We’re Thankful For ….Comics!

Each and every day of this coming week, we’re going to be telling you what we’re thankful for! We work hard every day to bring you geeky reviews and as we do that, we find our favorites…the ones we are truly thankful for coming across our desks, in our inboxes, at the theatres and everywhere that geeky things tend to sneak into our lives.

Archie #3

Written by Mark Waid, Art by Fiona Staples

All right. I return today to my exploration of the new-and-improved Riverdale High as a non-reader of Archie comics, on to the third issue of the new series by Mark Waid and Fiona Staples. In this issue, Veronica (Ronnie?) Lodge has her first day at school, and after having (not-such-a-spoiler) destroyed her house in the last issue, he’s trying to make it up to her. Or get in her pants. Or both.

Things don’t exactly go as planned. For anyone. (Surprise, surprise.)
