Best Comic of the Week
My taste tends to run towards imprints like Vertigo or comic companies like Image and Dark Horse. So it's something of a shock to realize that my favorite comic from today's releases is the reboot of Archie from Archie Comics.
Writer Mark Waid introduces us to a modern reimagining of the titular character that updates him but remains true to the spirit of the original. Archie Andrews, as presented in this comic, is just a really nice guy. Nice, but not saccharine.
Fiona Staples artwork is lovely and meshes nicely with Andre Szymanowicz's colors.
Overall, I'd give this book 5 out of 5 and I'm thinking I might add it to my pull if future issues remain this enjoyable.
