ARCHIE #589
THE FRESHMAN YEAR SAGA CONTINUES THIS ISSUE!
“Freshman Year: Winter Term”: In the tradition of “Batman: Year One,” “Superman: the Man of Steel” and the Marvel Ultimates comes the biggest Archie Comics event since the “Love Showdown!”  The third full-length issue of the “Freshman Year” saga finds Archie reflecting on the term just past, pining over Veronica and lamenting how she went away during the holiday break.  Hoping to stay close to Veronica, Archie joins the drama club – the perfect indoor activity during the frosty winter months.  But being part of such a large club is hardly the way to gain exclusive quality time with Veronica.  Will their reunion be everything Archie hopes, or will the eternal love triangle get off to a rollicking start with friction between Betty and Veronica instead?  And will Moose ever be introduced to Midge?  Other surprises in store for the gang this second term include some new faculty members as well as the departure of the expelled school bully, Jared McGerk.  It’s the funniest first year of high school ever, courtesy of fan-favorite writer Batton Lash of “Wolff & Byrd” and “Archie Meets the Punisher” fame, along with “Scrapyard Detectives” creator and popular Archie artist/writer Bill Galvan.
SCRIPT: Batton Lash.
