Archie Comics
Ferrante, Parent & Koslowski

Archie takes on Sharknado in what can only be described as a ridiculous, but fun comic book. Released to coincide with the premier of Sharknado Part 3, this one shot clocks in at forty pages for five bucks. You get your money's worth as this is an entertaining read. You know coming in that you aren't getting the most dramatic or deepest comic book ever. If you approach this with some fun in mind then you won't be disappointed.

Archie against Predator sounds ridiculous and may turn out to be great fun but by all accounts the first issue is largely Archie and friends on vacation. There is very little Predator in the comic book. The issue mostly captures Archie and his interactions with Betty and Veronica and some of the others. However, there are some panels that are quite bloody and graphic. Overall the book reads like a regular Archie comic book with some blood in it. I recommend giving this a look.

Geek Goggle Reviews: Afterlife With Archie #3

Afterlife With Archie #3Afterlife With Archie #3
Archie Comics
Aguirre-Sacasa & Francavilla

If the title doesn't give it away then here's what this book is about: zombie apocalypse in the land of Archie. That's correct: this is a comic book set in Riverdale with Archie, Betty, Veronica and Jughead where the zombie plague hits in full effect. Characters try to make sense of the mess, they try to survive, some get bit, they turn and plenty die. If this doesn't sound like an Archie comic then that is an understatement. However, after reading the issue I found the characterizations to drive the book that is obviously a horror based comic book. It's not a gory satire on Archie at all. Instead it's a character driven book just like the best of the Archie comics no matter the genre. This was actually something that I found to be very good.

Betty And Veronica #234 REVIEW

February 7th, 2009 12:24pm by ComicList Email

Suspended Animation Review

Betty & Veronica #234/23 pgs. & $2.25/Jeff Shultz, artist; George Gladir and Kathleen Webb, writers/sold in lots of places and at www.archiecomics.com.

Well, the girls are at it again. In this issue, Betty and Veronica bicker about boys and fashion, make up, and resume bickering about boys and fashion. Their’s has to be the longest running love/hate relationship in comic books. But it’s all done in well-drawn and well-written light-hearted fun, and these two girls are destined to remain friends long after the Human Torch and The Thing hug each other, Lois Lane and Superman tie the knot (for real and for ever), and Blondie divorces Dagwood and runs away with his boss.

Jughead #186 REVIEW

February 7th, 2009 8:14am by ComicList Email

Suspended Animation Review

Jughead #186/23 pgs. & $2.25 from Archie Comics/pencils: Rex Lindsey, words: Craig Boldman/ sold in lots of places and at www.archiecomics.com.

I never imagined that the last comic book I’d ever review would be Jughead, but it somehow seems appropriate. After all, old Juggie never grew up, and neither have I.

Veronica #180-184 REVIEW

December 20th, 2008 10:53am by ComicList Email

Suspended Animation Review

Veronica #s 180-184, 185-188/approx. 21 pgs. & $2.25 each from Archie Comic/sold in lots of shops and www.Archiecomics.com.

There has long been speculation and never much agreement about what makes something an icon. If it were possible to reduce the creation of such a symbol to a formula, that illusive secret would make everyone rich.

Archie And Friends #117 REVIEW

November 22nd, 2008 1:52pm by ComicList Email

Suspended Animation Review

Archie & Friends #117, 23 pages and $2.25 from Archie Comics. Sold in comic and other shops, and on-line at www.archiecomics.com.

The format of Archie and Friends usually includes a story focused on Archie and a story about a secondary character like Dilbert (the resident boy genius), or Katy Keene (the fashion model), or Jughead (the jughead). Not so for issue #117 in which Archie, assorted pals, and several high school teachers travel to London with promised trips to Madrid, Nairobi, Rome, and Zurich.

Suspended Animation Review

Betty & Veronica Spectacular #s78-83/26 pgs. & $2.25 each/Dan Parent, principal artist and writer/sold in lots of places and at www.archiecomics.com.

Who reads about Archie's girlfriends, Betty and Veronica, in B & V Spectacular? Here are a few clues. "How to Have Your Own Beach Bash!", "Home EC. Or Shop?", "Eco Friendly Tips, Fashions & Fun!", and "Cool Summer Fashions!" are all cover blurbs for this Archie Comics title.
