From Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and the writers of the CW's Riverdale comes the first collection of the comic book set in the universe of the TV series. 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. Featuring four stories focusing on the major players and events in the Riverdale series- Spend some time at Archie's summer construction job and learn how it leads him to a fateful encounter with the alluring music teacher, Ms. Grundy. Discover the truth about Betty's Los Angeles romance. Find out more about Veronica's mysterious life in New York, before the shocking event that would send her family scrambling. And meanwhile, there's Jughead, on the fringes of Riverdale, a witness to the terrible event that sets everything in motion- A tragedy that befalls Jason Blossom. You dare not miss this collection, written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa ( Afterlife with Archie, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina ) and the writers of the CW Riverdale series, with stunning art by Alitha Martinez ( Black Panther- World of Wakanda )!
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Billed as an "Archie Comics Presentation," this volume serves as a prequel and tie-in with the recent CW series Riverdale, but any nostalgic connections readers might have with the characters from the original series are jeopardized by the bizarre situations they are forced into. Jughead still works at a drive-in theater and orders piles of burgers at a 1950s-era diner, but Archie is sleeping with the high school music teacher, Ms. Grundy. Betty has left for a summer internship in L.A., and Veronica only arrives in town after her billionaire father is arrested for embezzlement and fraud. Betty's sister, Polly, was dating the star quarterback Jason Bloom, but after an absurd tragedy leads to her breakdown, Polly ends up in a mental institution. Every chapter of this book has a different writer/artist team, and some switch artists literally mid-scene. The result is choppy and inconsistent, and though it may still appeal to avid fans of the reboot, the drama comes across as forced and boring. (Oct.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
