Archie #7 by Mark Waid & Veronica Fish – Review

The new Archie series has been very interesting to follow since its debut last year, and this is no exception. Mark Waid has firmly set up a series of events and redefined characters for the 21st century without betraying their iconic roots. The largest shake-up has to be the rocky relationship status of Archie and Betty and how Archie and Veronica have become firmly established as a couple.

Archie Collectors Edition Now Available In Comic Shops

This week, the Archie Collectors Edition, collecting the first three issues of Archie, by Mark Waid and Fiona Staples arrives in your local comic shop.

Now you can have them a collected edition for your bookshelf instead of filed away in some boxes. As a bonus, both Mark Waid and Fiona Staples talk about recreating Archie and Riverdale, and there's a look at Fiona Staples' art process.

Archie #3 Preview

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.

Review: Archie #1

There's been a lot of speculation about Archie Comics Riverdale relaunch. There were fears that it would turn into a grim and gritty reboot, on par with the infamous Fan Film Trailer made by Point Blank Creative in 2011. However, Mark Waid had a reputation that didn't match those fears, and artist Fiona Staples has the brightest style, even when illustrating very dark scenes. I'll address the tone of the new series and the overall quality of the book. CAUTION: There may be SPOILERS ahead, despite my best efforts to avoid them.

Review: Princess Leia #1

It seems right that Princess Leia's solo book should debut in March, the month of Women In Comics. It's sad that it's only meant to be a mini-series, but here's hoping that can change after this story runs its course, because I would love a series about Princess Leia. In too many extended universe stories she becomes a supporting character to Han or Luke.

REVIEW: S.H.I.E.L.D. #2

Editor's Note: I'm having a less than busy day, so I'm reviewing all the comics that I'm reading today before moving on to the next one. Some of these may seem redundant based on previous reviews, but that's what I'm reading today. S.H.I.E.L.D. #2 MARK WAID (w) HUMBERTO RAMOS (A) Cover by JULIAN TOTINO TEDESCO Variant cover by HUMBERTO RAMOS 32 PGS./Rated T+ ...$3.99 Synopsis: • Why has SHIELD agent Jemma Simmons gone undercover at the Coles Academic High School in Jersey City? • Maybe it has something to do with the all-new Ms Marvel... • ...and the most dangerous lunch meal ever served Review: It's rare when I laugh out loud reading a comic, but as I turned the first page, I laughed out loud at a horrible cliché that I completely did not see coming.
