Archie Comics has promised that “Over The Edge” will change the New Riverdale with tragedy striking one of the gang. Now with Archie #22, we finally learn the outcome of this story that changes everything.

It's been promised that everything would change for the new Riverdale in "Over The Edge." A beloved Riverdale resident would face tragedy, and the instant speculation began over who it would be. Well, from the looks of this preview, things don't look good for a certain Ms. Cooper. Of course, that could be a red herring and it'll be a twist ending from out of nowhere. I guess we'll have to wait a couple of weeks to find out.
When Archie Comics first announced Adam Hughes as the writer and artist for Betty & Veronica, I was cautiously optimistic. With each of the first two issues, I got more optimistic, but remained cautious. The book, however good it was, still didn't seem to quite fit with the new narrative that Mark Waid had established for the New Riverdale. Now the final issue of the debut story arc is available, and we can fully evaluate how well Adam Hughes' Betty & Veronica sits not only with the rest of the New Riverdale, but as a story as a whole.
I like getting review copies from Archie Comics. With a few exceptions, they’ve been firing on all cylinders with the new Riverdale. I reviewed the first issue, and found it wanting a little, but when Adam Hughes produces an entire comic book, not just the cover, I’ll read the second issue. BETTY & VERONICA #2
There's probably not been an Archie comic that more people have looked forward to since its announcement than Betty and Veronica #1 by Adam Hughes. I, for one, looked forward to sharing my thoughts with you about this comic, until I got the chance to read it. Don't get me wrong, it's good, but therein lies the problem. Please, read to the end of the review.
The delays in the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and Afterlife With Archie have been hard for fans of the Archie Horror Line to take. Fortunately, these delays are not accompanied with missed solicitations, just long breaks between the publishing of issues with most recently almost a year between issues. The long wait is over, and we see
Archie Comics is expecting Batty and Veronica #1 to be a major sales force for them, and to prove it, there will be no less than 25 different covers, including the regular cover by Adam Hughes, pictured below and first in this article.
The news has broken today that Adam Hughes will indeed write and draw a new Betty and Veronica title for Archie Comics. As part of the new Riverdale, it's expected to tie in to the story Mark Waid and Chip Zdarsky are crafting in Archie and Jughead. It was first teased during Archie Comics' ill-fated Kickstarter campaign last year, but now the title is coming to comic shops at last.
Archie Comics has sent us previews of Archie #6, the latest issue in one of our favorite new series of 2015. With what looks like the new regular artist Veronica Fish, the sample pages show the first signs that the budding relationship between Archie and Veronica has a threat in the form of Riverdale's former richest teenager, Reggie Mantle. Mark Waid's story further develops the supporting cast of Riverdale High, updating them, yet keeping them familiar. Check out the preview below, and then reserve your copy for next month!
We've got a preview of Archie #3 in our e-mail today, and I'd be lying if I said I didn't squee a little bit. Mark Waid and Fiona Staples have been knocking this series out the park. With this issue promising the first real look at Veronica Lodge in the new Riverdale, it promises to be something really special.
One of the surprises for me this year has been the relaunched Archie series by Mark Waid and Fiona Staples. Archie Comics has been kind enough to send us some teaser pages. I'm calling them teasers because we're only seeing the art, which includes one of the first interactions between Archie and Veronica. I'm really waiting to read this, so check them out, and assume that we'll have a review as soon as we can before the September 30 release date.
Archie #2 is out this week, and while I really liked the first issue, I was still hesitant about the series as a whole. Could the tone and the elements that made me like the first issue be maintained? How will Veronica's introduction into Riverdale be handled? Needless to say, there may be spoilers.
