Riverdale Vol. 1

Riverdale Vol. 1 is a collection of the new series from Archie Comics. In the last couple of years, they have released modern versions of their classic comics. These include a new Archie series, Betty and Veronica, Jughead, Reggie and friends, and Josie and the Pussycats. The first issues of each of these series are in this collection. They each have different artists who have made the comics look more realistic instead of the classic cartoons. 

This collection was released to promote the new TV series, also called Riverdale. The series is a modern murder mystery, set in Riverdale. The same cast of characters is there, but they are more diverse. Veronica lodge is latina and Josie and The Pussycats are African-American. This series deals with serious issues, such as murder, teenage pregnancy, and adultery, to name a few. 

I love how the TV series is a more modern view of the characters I grew up reading. It’s as if the characters grew up alongside me. The show reflects the new values in the new series of comics. I’m excited to see the next issues that will be included in Vol. 2.
