THE HISTORIC, GROUND-BREAKING MINI-SERIES STARTS HERE! Archie has been around for over 75 years and has been through many significant moments in time, but never before have we seen the characters take on real-world events as they unfold. WWII is looming and Archie and many young men from Riverdale are close to enlistment age. If you’re a Riverdale teen, how would you cope with a looming world-changing event? Join the writing team of MARK WAID and BRIAN AUGUSTYN along with artist PETER KRAUSE for the all-new mini-series that is sure to have everyone talking!
I like the concept, though.[/su_quote][su_quote cite=”Stephen’s Thoughts”]We’ve spent years following Archie and the gang of Riverdale as they went through High School, but what happens when they graduate? What happens after? What is Archie to do as an 18 year old in 1941? What does it mean to “grow up and be a man?” Some really interesting questions, and a different look at our title character in a time period where everything changed overnight. While the setting are the months leading up to World War II, this could very easily fit in any time period where young men and women are caught up in war, and the awakening that happens when real life hits you in the face. I enjoyed this much more and much more deeply than I anticipated.[/su_quote]
