The five part story kicked off in Archie & Friends #587 (you did read that one didn’t you?) that took a look at the summer before the Archie gang entered high school. Archie #588 features the gang during their first fall semester.

Archie and his friends are starting the fall semester of their first high school year. Having survived a summer that saw the departure of Jughead and bickering parents, the gang arrives at high school… to find elementary school Principal Mr. Weatherbee has now become the high school Principal! But it’s not just about reunions at Riverdale High. Archie also makes a new friend in Pencilneck G., although he prefers his more laid-back buddy Jughead. He also makes some new enemies in Jared McGerk and his band of bullies! Along the way the other classic faculty members are introduced, as well as Pop Tate and his Chok’lit Shop! It’s the funniest first year of high school ever!

Archie #588 arrives August 20, 2008 at your LCS, and news stands and bookstores on September 2, 2008.
