Archie #1 2015 by Mark Waid

ARCHIE #1 : ★★★★☆


Comics Icons reimagined by Mark Waid and Fiona Staples (Saga illustrator)! I got really excited about this when I learned it came out this year and I had to get it and give it a try. Oh my, you don’t know how grateful I am. Fiona Staples’s art is delicious to the eyes, very modern and contemporary, she succeeds in bringing the best of today’s fashion, lifestyles into this unique masterpiece. It has gossip, school, teenagers, relationship problems. A light and fun ride for this on going series ! One of the things that I LOVE THE MOST is the new look but somehow, Waid and Staples triumph keeping the old classic vibe too. If you have read Archie Comics in the past (I was not the ultimate fan but I’ve read some in my childhood), you will sure appreciate this new addition. Nostalgia and great surprises knocking at our doors !

I’m patiently waiting for the second issue ( since I can’t find it anywhere in Montreal but I will not loose hope haha). The next issue to come is #4 go grab it at your nearest comic store ! 😉 ❤

I just started the 1st issue last month and I wanted to give you guys a quick feedback on it and share this excitement with you all! See you 😀

    Is it sad that I think I can no appreciate Archie with the new art style? I couldn’t stand the old style and shied away from every reading it because of it.

      Hahha yes it is sad xD But I can understand that. Not a problem 😉 There are plenty of Young Adult Comics/Graphic Novels out there you can try! But Fiona Staples illustrations alone are worth a look in this one 😀 ❤ -Trang


  2. I loved the comic strip, Archie. I used to read it regularly when newspapers used to have a comics section.
