In what sounds like a homage to Rebel Without A Cause, Reggie and Archie are finally comes to a head in a thrill ride on Dead Man’s Curve.  Will someone die? We’ll find out in Over the Edge a three part story from Mark Waid, Pete Woods, and Jack Morelli.

Following in the footsteps of the best-selling DEATH OF ARCHIE storyline and the critically acclaimed ARCHIE relaunch, OVER THE EDGE serves as a culmination of years of risk-taking stories and promises to change the lives of Riverdale’s core characters dramatically.

“Up until now, Archie and his pals have led fairly untroubled, normal lives,” said series writer Mark Waid. “Suddenly, in one horrifying instant, that all changes when one of the kids looks death in the eye–and death doesn’t blink.”
