Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Despite the introduction of an openly gay character, Kevin Keller, in 2010, the Archie universe is known more for its consistency of tone and style than for innovation or change. Generally, Riverdale High remains an unlikely agglomeration of happy-go-lucky teenagers who tend to avoid the social and hormonal pitfalls of adolescence. In this new collection, district budget cuts have resulted in the sudden addition of 50 new kids to the Riverdale student body. Some of them are direct counterparts to the lead characters: a new Miss Popularity threatens Veronica’s claim to that title; a school photographer squeezes Betty from that role; and a shadowy figure known as “Prankenstein” one-ups Reggie’s efforts in that department. This collection’s interlocked stories are built upon such newfound rivalries. As always, the writing is fast-paced; jokes are sprayed like buckshot, missing as many targets as they hit. Simple, easy-to-spot character models and plenty of action keep the visuals fluid and engaging. It’s predictably lightweight stuff that will entertain most preteens. All ages. (Aug.)
