    Somehow brand new yet true to the original we all know and love! Staples and Waid have taken Riverdale and it's beloved characters and brought them to the 21st century! Relatable for all ages, a new generation of Archie lovers are about to be born! (Crystal)

    — From Crystal


    ARCHIE, one of the longest-running titles in comic book history, is rebooted here in this full-color collection that brings together two of the most talented creators in comics, Mark Waid and Fiona Staples. Together they create a surprising and definitive take on Archie's origin--a story that has never been told. The book will captures the bite and hilarious edge of Archie's original tales in a modern, forward-looking manner, while still retaining the character's all-ages appeal. If classic Archie is a Saturday morning cartoon, this new series is prime time.
