This volume collects the #1issues of the New Riverdale titles which is actually a cool way to introduce fans of the show to the comics. I was already familiar with the new Archie, Jughead 😍, & Josie series but Betty & Veronica was a pleasant surprise for its dreamy retro coloring and the verbose narration of Jug's English Sheepdog Hot Dog 😂 why Reggie & Me needs to exist remains a mystery (more dog narration! 😮). #mommyreads #riverdale #comics

I expected this to be a storyline similar to the TV show, but that one‘s just called Riverdale. This is actually a collection of unrelated first issues from the new Riverdale gang—Archie, Jughead, Betty & Veronica, Josie & the Pussycats, and Reggie & Me (the “me” is Reggie‘s dog). In a weird twist of past reality, I preferred the Archie, Josie & the Pussycats, and Reggie & Me issues to the others. #LetsGetGraphicWeeklongMarathon #LitsyPartyofOne

I've been nervous to give this one a go, because I'm worried about it ruining the original comics for me. I grew up on those comics. I remember countless days watching my older brother read them, then years later I had a collection of my own. Maybe 300-400 archie comics in total. But here I am. I'm going to jump in, and hope for the best! 📚❤️📚

TricksyTails Same! I grew up on the originals. Haven't been able to bring myself to watch the tv show. Hope you enjoy it! 2y
MiyakoBunny @TricksyTails I feel you guys I love the originals too 😁-I unfortunately viewed some of the show and it‘s visually stunning but basically garbage 🤮🤮🤮 2y
TricksyTails @MiyakoBunny Booooo! Welp, that saves me the trouble! Thanks for letting me know. 😁 @Clwojick The one reboot I am interested in reading is the one illustrated by Saga's artist, Fiona Staples. (edited) 2y

RainyDayReading I‘ve got this one to read too! Haven‘t started it yet though ^^‘ 2y
hollynations I just finished that one a few days ago too. 2y
readinginthedark I felt the same way! I think it‘s different enough that we can enjoy the new one separately from the old one. The show isn‘t bad, but it‘s mostly one of those YA group society thriller things—kind of weird and overly dramatic. 2y

The first few chapters were excepts from the jughead and Archie books. But the test was fun and new!

I haven't read any from this series, but I used to read comics about Archie and the gang all the time! And the new Riverdale show is gritty and dramatic; I did not expect to like it, but I am so hooked! Is anybody else watching this? Side note: I am loving this version of Jughead! Other than the parents, they've probably changed him the most...well, him and Archie. #bookintomovie #splashintosummerreads

TrishB My kids watch it - I haven't though! 3y
batsy I'm watching it! It started out well but got a bit silly mid-season, I think. It's such a guilty pleasure despite that, though 😊 3y
AmandaL I like the new comics, but I haven't seen the show yet. 3y

mandapants It did start to get a bit over the top ~ but i have gobbled up every episode. Veronica is my least fav. 3y
christineandbooks I'm watching it... definitely a guilty pleasure show along the lines of Pretty Little Liars for me. Intrigued enough to watch again next season. Love the Jughead character. Archie kinda gets on my nerves. 3y
readinginthedark @TrishB @batsy @AmandaL @mandapants @christineandbooks I don't get a lot of TV time, so I've probably only seen five or six episodes. I agree that it's a guilty pleasure show, 100%! And Archie is grating. Not sure how I feel about Veronica yet...or Cheryl Blossom; they're not exactly what I expected. Is anyone else wondering why all of the parents are majorly screwed up? 3y
mandapants Archie is SO grating. And the parents...? Geeze. Wait till you meet Archie's mom. 3y
batsy @christineandbooks @readinginthedark Same! It's filling the PLL hole in my life. I too can't stand Archie and love Jughead. 😁 I enjoy the over-the-top Cheryl and Betty's mom for the campy drama; the rest of them are quite forgettable... 3y
readinginthedark @mandapants Wow, well I guess we'll know why Archie's such a mess! 3y
readinginthedark @batsy @christineandbooks I never watched PLL, but these crazy dramas...they get you with the unpredictable people and wild twists! 3y
DivineDiana Wait! I am not aware of this show! Please enlighten me! PLL? 3y
readinginthedark @DivineDiana Pretty Little Liars--it's based on a YA book series. I haven't watched or read it, but I think it starts out with some girls covering up a murder and gets more convoluted with lies and drama and relationships as it goes. 3y
DivineDiana I am aware of Pretty Little Liars. The author lives in my area and grew up in the town where I used to teach. Did not know about a show based on the Archie comics! 😉 3y
readinginthedark @DivineDiana Oh sorry! It's called Riverdale, and I think it's based on some of the newer comics in a modern setting? It has the same characters, but they all have some major issues, and it starts with Jason Blossom dying. So, while little dramas are happening, there's a continuous thread figuring out what happened to him and how it affected everyone else in Riverdale. Very dramatic, gritty, kind of messed-up in parts. 3y
DivineDiana Thank you! I actually got a chance to check it out last night! 3y
readinginthedark @DivineDiana 👍🏻What did you think? 3y
DivineDiana It was darker than I expected. Don't think I'll watch anymore episodes, but I can see how teens would like it! 3y
readinginthedark @DivineDiana Definitely dark! I don't normally watch shows like it, but I find this one so intriguing! Maybe it's my curiosity...or Jughead? 3y

A disappointing read since it's marketed as the stories that inspired the TV show but it's more an intro to the modern Archie comics.
