ARCHIE #591
THE SCHOOL YEAR WINDS DOWN AND SO DOES THE “FRESHMAN YEAR SAGA” IN THIS THRILLING CONCLUSION!
“Freshman Year: Spring Term”: As the first year of high school winds down, the teens anticipate the summer break… but not before having a “Spring Formal” to send off the school year. But a few uninvited guests have crashed the dance – an unwelcome band of bikers who have an axe to grind with the school, especially a freshman named Archie! Who are they and what is their problem? Plus, the spy in Riverdale is finally revealed. Will Mr. Weatherbee prevail? It’s a thrilling way to end the school year, 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.
