ARCHIE, one of the longest-running titles in comic book history, is rebooted here in this full-color collection that brings together two of the most talented creators in comics, Mark Waid and Fiona Staples. Together they create a surprising and definitive take on Archie's origina story that has never been told. The book will captures the bite and hilarious edge of Archie's original tales in a modern, forward-looking manner, while still retaining the character's all-ages appeal. If classic Archie is a Saturday morning cartoon, this new series is prime time!

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Pretty good! I remember thumbing through a few Archie comics when I was young, but they were never really my thing. But when the show Riverdale came out, I had a new appreciation for these characters. So when I saw the graphic novel on the shelf at my library, I had to pick it up. I enjoyed the story, and especially the artwork. It was a little disconcerting to go from one artist's rendition of the characters to another, especially when I enjoyed Fiona Staple's artwork so much. She's the artist for one of my favorite graphic novels, Saga. I'm giving this 4 out of 5 stars. I can't wait to get my hands on the next volume.
