    Spencer starts off strong with everyone returning from summer vacation for a new year at Riverdale High. Archie has a secret new girlfriend and Jughead has an interesting subplot searching for Reggie's dad. But the book is way too decompressed. It takes forever to go anywhere and we quickly delve into Teen Beat type subplots like Riverdale's version of the Bachelor. The book ends mid story as well, which I find annoying in a trade paperback. Maurguerite Sauvage's art is fantastic.

She only sticks around for a couple of issues before Sandy Jarrell takes over though. His art is solid, it just pales in comparison to Sauvage's.

    After an eventful summer, all of Riverdale's favourite teens are back for another year at Riverdale High - but Archie's got a secret new girlfriend, and if there's one thing Riverdale can't stand, it's a secret!

His Archie run gets off to a good start, showing that he can write all of Riverdale's personalities well enough, and immediately mixing things up by throwing Sabrina into the mix.

Nick Spencer seems to be everywhere at the moment. His Archie run gets off to a good start, showing that he can write all of Riverdale's personalities well enough, and immediately mixing things up by throwing Sabrina into the mix. The Jughead plot moves far too slowly for my tastes, but everything else going on takes up enough real estate that I can't complain too much. Marguerite Sauvage's artwork is flawless, and it's a shame she can't stick around for more. Sandy Jarrell is a good regular series artist, and fits the tone already established by Mark Waid's previous Archie series, but it all pales in comparison to Sauvage's beautiful style, which is a pity. Archie's back, back, back again, and he seems to be doing okay. Bit of a slow start, but there's definitely momentum building.

    Waiduv run jsem miloval a to i pres to ze to vlastne byla komedie o skolacich s porsd stejnymi tropy. Nic se skoro nikam neposunulo a zaver vysumel. Nemluvne o tom ze to zacalo byt ke konci lehce repetetivni. Spencer na to jde ale jinak, Archie ma novou podivnou pritelkyni, Reggieho tata je unesen a v Riverdalu je mozna i nejaky kult. Cele to zacalo vice sazet na pribeh s lehce Mysteriozni vlnu, pricemz humor a prostor na postavy zustava taky. Akorat se ubralo na Cartoon Slapstick hum Waiduv run jsem miloval a to i pres to ze to vlastne byla komedie o skolacich s porsd stejnymi tropy. Nic se skoro nikam neposunulo a zaver vysumel.

Akorat se ubralo na Cartoon Slapstick humoru a Spencer nesikovnost Archieho ukazuje ve vice realistickych barvach. Co se tyce Artu, tak te ze zprvu zda meh ale pak jsem si ho oblibil, i kdyz se obcas prolina s jinym. Ve smes je to urcite lepsi nez od Waida a take je to docela page turner. Nick Spencer holt umi...

    And so begins a new era for Archie, and back to original numbering! (Why tho?) Even though this is still the same continuity established by Mark Waid back in 2015, it feels kinda like a reboot. Gone is Archie narrating the story, and now it’s Jughead doing the work which is exactly like on the Riverdale TV show, and there’s even an ongoing mystery occurring, which is interesting for this run, but I find it annoying because not enough information is given and there’s always a cliffhanger at the e And so begins a new era for Archie, and back to original numbering! (Why tho?) Even though this is still the same continuity established by Mark Waid back in 2015, it feels kinda like a reboot. Gone is Archie narrating the story, and now it’s Jughead doing the work which is exactly like on the Riverdale TV show, and there’s even an ongoing mystery occurring, which is interesting for this run, but I find it annoying because not enough information is given and there’s always a cliffhanger at the end of each issue, and yeah, it’s kinda like Nick Spencer’s Morning Glories series, but that type of ongoing mystery and cliffhanger-ness was done better there than here. I still enjoyed reading it and find it better than Archie Vol. 6 (and it’s definitely better than Riverdale Season 3), but I don’t like the fact that this comic is trying to replicate the show. The artwork was good, but I really didn’t like how Marguerite Sauvage drew the male characters, especially Archie, but Sandy Jarrell did do a better job in the later issues. Overall, this is an interesting start to a new run, it’s the same old series, but it feels brand new. I hope the artwork will remain consistent in this “iteration”.

    Sadly I was really disappointed by this. I feel like it didn’t really take on the direction that Waid had brought the reboot on: steering away from Veronica and Betty being Archie-obsessed; having it more friendship-based but still tinged with Riverdale-ish mystery. Don’t know if I’ll be picking up the next one.

    It's the Riverdale-ization of Archie. I guess if that's something you're looking for, you'll be pleased, but I miss Waid's less soapy and actually funny approach way better.
