My Review:

rp-first-thoughts

After reading volume one, I immediately picked up volume two. I didn’t realize how much I missed these characters.

rp-plot

In these next six issues, the plot focuses on Archie’s relationship with Veronica and her father while he and Betty awkwardly try to reconfigure their friendship while they both see other people.

Veronica’s father and Betty’s uncle go against each other for mayor and Archie gets caught in the middle of the feud. Archie, Veronica, and Jughead start a band, so Betty and her friends start a band and they go head to head.

Each issue has its own mini-plot as it continues the overall plot of Archie’s life in general, especially his love life.

rp-characters

The characters, like in the first volume, are just as good. Archie is a wonderful protagonist. Each and every character has their own purpose and background. I enjoy seeing all their stories together.

rp-writing-style

The writing style is just as humorous as the last and the pictures, even though two of the illustrators are different, are beautiful. I really enjoy how they used the pictures and the words as a team to tell the story.

rp-overall

You can’t go wrong with this series. I love Archie and I’m looking forward to reading the next volume.
