I absolutely loved the art in Saga, so when I saw that Fiona Staples contributed to this story, I just had to pick it up.

And the art in Archie was just as stunningly beautiful as it was in Saga.

This volume, however, focuses mainly on Archie’s journey throughout the new school year, bringing with it daunting new challenges and interesting changes for the teens of Riverdale High.

But there’s one thing that remains constant: Archie’s car is still a piece of garbage! With car problems comes money problems, which means that Archie’s on the hunt for a new job.

It also highlights various friendships and relationships, my favorite one being between Archie and Betty. (Whether they decide to remain friends or start their relationship anew, I’m there.)

And here’s some bonus Jughead content because why not?

Would have been 5 stars if Fiona Staples had done the art for every issue! I loved the story, but frankly I was disappointed by the art change halfway through.

I’m torn on continuing this series, because apparently Fiona Staples didn’t draw anything for the next volume SO
