Overview

  • Release Date: June 03, 2015
  • Pros:

    Nostalgic

  • Cons:

    Tired Characters
    Weak Plot

  • Conclusion:

    Only for Collectors or Completists

Archie Andrews always has been a comic book character that I greeted with complete indifference. Even in my youth, Archie comics never caught my attention, though an occasional issue would be bought if I was completely desperate for something to read and nothing else was available. Then in 2013, Archie was re-envisioned an ass-kicking zombie slayer in the absolutely brilliant, Afterlife With Archie. Since then, the town of Riverdale has been showing up sporadically on my radar, first with Archie Vs. Predator, and now the final issue of Archie (before it gets rebooted).

This historic issue opens with Archie running in the hallways and knocking over a ladder, which spilled paint all over the hallway and knocked out a window. Principal Weatherbee decides that Archie will be given his 666th detention on Saturday and if Archie cannot repair the damage, he will be expelled. In turn, Archie freaks out because this disrupts his weekend plans of taking Betty out to a picnic in the morning, followed by a date with Veronica at night. Of course.

This issue tries its best to wax nostalgic about Archie by focusing the majority of it on a series of flashbacks about Archie’s clumsy nature and the associated toll that it has taken on Riverdale. While some of these mishaps seemed a bit outdated and corny, I do not feel like it was a complete waste of time, though I am sure that they would be welcomed by Archie completists (if those people exist).

Even though I am not the biggest fan of the conventional Archie canon, this issue seems to do two things very well. First, it shows that when all the chips are down, even Archie’s rivals seem to have a deep-rooted affinity for him. Second, it highlights the fact that a reboot of this series would be a very welcomed change for Riverdale since the tropes are tired and the characters are still basic.

Even though I might be a bit harsh on this issue as a series finale, when the Archie reboot hits the shelves, I will be there to visit Riverdale and the old gang.

Your authoring is quite persuasive which is probably the reason why I am making an effort to comment. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Next, although I can certainly see the jumps in logic you come up with, I am not really convinced of just how you appear to unite your points which help to make the final result. For right now I will, no doubt yield to your point but trust in the future you actually link the dots better.

    Fingers down, Apple’s app retailer wins by a mile. It’s a massive range of all forms of applications vs a really unhappy choice of a handful for Zune. Microsoft consists of Designs, primarily inside the realm of video games, nonetheless I’m not confident I’d require in direction of bet on the long term if this characteristic is vital toward by yourself. The iPod is a substantially much better determination in just that scenario.

    Among me and my husband we’ve owned further MP3 players in excess of the many years than I can rely, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, and many others. But, the last handful of a long time I’ve settled down towards one line of avid gamers. Why? Due to the fact I was delighted in the direction of check out how well-designed and entertaining in direction of retain the services of the underappreciated (and broadly mocked) Zunes are.

The iPod is a much far better choice within just that circumstance.
