ARCHIE #610
LEGENDARY WRITER TOM DEFALCO RETURNS TO ARCHIE FOR THIS SPECIAL ACTION-PACKED STORY ARC FEATURING THE MAN FROM R.I.V.E.R.DA.L.E. AND A SURPRISE CHARACTER DECADES IN THE MAKING!
“The Blackest (and Bluest) Day!”: In the annals of Archie Comics history, it doesn’t get more explosive than this, as we present the return of the MAN FROM R.I.V.E.R.D.A.L.E., the return of iconic writer Tom DeFalco AND the unveiling of an exciting character who has been kept under wraps for decades! Evil spy ring C.R.U.S.H. is out to obtain Formula Z, but first they must get past the defenses of the Man from R.I.V.E.R.D.A.L.E. as he vigorously guards the secret formula! Fortunately for C.R.U.S.H., the Man from R.I.V.E.R.D.A.L.E. is none other than Archie Andrews, and he’s as girl crazy as ever! C.R.U.S.H. dispatches the beautiful Sharry the Spy Girl, who is determined to use all of her feminine wiles to obtain that formula! Can Archie resist the paralyzing pull of pulchritude or will he lose the formula to crafty C.R.U.S.H.? Adding to the excitement is Andy Andrews, star of a never-published tale of intrigue from the 1950s wherein the intrepid foreign correspondent went undercover behind the Iron Curtain! All this is just the beginning of a four-issue story arc that is sure to get your pulse pounding with excitement! Tom DeFalco, who got his start at Archie and later became a legendary writer/editor at Marvel, returns to Riverdale for the first time since overseeing 1994’s epic ARCHIE MEETS THE PUNISHER Archie/Marvel crossover, while fan-favorite Fernando Ruiz delivers the action-packed art!
