RIVERDALE VOL. 1 offers a bold, subversive take on Archie, Betty, Veronica, Josie & the Pussycats and their friends, exploring small-town life and the darkness bubbling beneath Riverdale's wholesome facade.

Learn the secrets and hidden tales from the summer before the eternal love-triangle begins.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Good Addition to the TV Series For those who picked up the new reboot of the "Archie" comics and expected it to be the story of "Riverdale", this comic is for you. It's a comic based on stories that are in-between the episodes so it gives more of a behind-the-scenes look at scenes that were mentioned but were not shown on the show. For instance, Betty's internship. I actually did enjoy this comic and thought that it stayed true to the show. It did have some aspects that were kept from the classic comic but mainly, it felt that this comic is moreso geared towards fan of the show (as you would expect). I did like illustrations throughout the issues in this volume and although there were some changes in illustrators throughout, it felt that it went together more neatly and the illustrators complemented each other. It was a much better experience than reading the first "Archie" comic with the vast difference between illustrators. For fans of the show, I definitely would recommend this volume. I'm interested in reading what is to come but I know I should probably get farther along in the show. For those that are curious, I have only watched the first season of "Riverdale" and nothing within this volume was a spoiler for me.
