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.

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...

Synopsis: The Saga continues as the Batman villains, led by the notorious Joker continue to try and take over Riverdale. They have the adults under their control. What can they do to take over ALL of Riverdale? 

Review: Archie Comics would have to go WAY beyond the beaten path before they could get an even slightly negative review from me. This 3rd Volume in the Archie Meets Batman saga continues to stay true to form. This includes Jughead’s need for hamburgers, which has always made me love this character. This is an obvious stepping stone in the series as we see the villains scrambling to set down their trap for the Riverdale teens...
