Goodreads Synopsis:

Introducing… Cheryl Blossom! The fiery red-head takes center stage as Archie and Veronica’s worlds are torn apart as the two are living thousands of miles away from each other. What will happen to the rest of Archie’s friends in Riverdale? And just what kind of havoc will Cheryl Blossom wreak? All the answers and more in the third volume of the SMASH HIT Archie series! Collects Archie issues 13 – 17.


When I was little, I didn’t like Cheryl Blossom. She made rare appearances in the Double Digests I read. In those comics, she would arrive in Riverdale and upset the love triangle of Archie, Betty, and Veronica. Betty and Veronica didn’t like her, so I didn’t either. Ironically, she’s now one of my favourite characters on the new TV series, Riverdale.

Cheryl plays a slightly different role in this story. She meets Veronica while away at boarding school in Switzerland, and she eventually makes her way to Riverdale. Meanwhile back in Riverdale, Archie has a kind of mental breakdown and decides to live like Jughead. That part of the story was strange, so I enjoyed the Veronica/Cheryl story better.

This is a great third volume in the series!

What to read next:

  • Archie, Vol. 4 by Mark Waid, Pete Woods


  • The Best of Cheryl Blossom by Dan DeCarlo
