    If you wanted to stop here, you could. I mean, it's not over, but this had that typical never-ending Archie Andrews/ Riverdale feel to it. And I say that without a hint of sarcasm. It's the perfect sort of ending. But it's not. Because Archie is designed not to end. This is a ...

    This fifth volume, which collects Archie comics #23-27, continues the drama following the car crash at the end of Vol 4 in which Betty is injured after the ill-fated drag race between Archie and Reggie. As always, the art work is great, the story a delicate balance of pathos and teen h...

    ????? ? 5 stars Oh this is heartbreaking but seeing everyone work together, it's sweet! And all the drama...sheesh! Choosing - that's always hard. Relationships ended. Relationships began. Oh man, I thought that was the end of the series!!!! Sheesh, don't do that! ...

    Mark Waid gets serious as Betty recovers from her injury. However, he does a wonderful job of dealing with some serious content while adding plenty of humor. Waid puts the characters through their paces, shakes up the status quo, and gives even minor characters like Dilton a chance to ...

    After the cliffhanger of the last volume, I liked how they handled the outcome of Betty?s injury. She wasn?t miraculously cured (even though it may have felt that way) and it took time for her to heal. I would not say I was a fan of going back to the whole Betty versus Veronica dil...

    Volume five of Mark Waid's Archie is set in the aftermath of last volume's car crash. And, there are important repercussions here that produce good drama ... but honestly, we know they'll be mostly resolved by the end of this volume. Fortunately, that's not the heart of Mark Waid's ...

    For some reason I thought this was the end of this creative team and I just about cried. This was my fav story arc of the series (been reading since day 1) and I was not ready for things to change. GAH I love this. ...

    [Read as single issues] After the harrowing events of Over The Edge, Betty Cooper's life will never be the same. There's a reason this arc is subtitled as 'The Heart Of Riverdale', because this volume really examines what Betty means, not just to our core characters, but to everyo...

    3.5 I don't think Archie will ever be as magical as it was in the initial Waid/Staples run but this is a nice return to smaller, character-driven stories. I really like Mok on art duties. Archie is still a putz, though. ...

    I like that this cover makes it look like the characters are having joint gay weddings. But this felt like the weakest storyline yet. It's the continuation of the "Betty's accident" plot from the last collection, which is trite and annoying because you know she's not actually going to ...

    A touching story on the true meaning of friendship. I adore all the characters or Riverdale! ...

    I enjoy this series but it also reminds me a lot of One Tree Hill. So i gotta be in the mood for it. ...

    It's been quite a shock to go back to Mark Waid's Archie after having just watched the first season of Riverdale. Waid does so much better with these characters, investing them with so much life and humanity. His B-story with Dilton in this collection for example, giving him a moment t...

    I really liked this series in the beginning but I feel like it's getting worse as it goes along. Too bad :( ...

    I love the way this series is going. In this volume, we continued the story of what happens to Betty after the drag race turned bad. But there are hints of the subplots from earlier volumes, and I can tell from the Prologue teased at the end of this volume that we're going to pick up w...

    I really liked this one, it was nice 1) to see how Betty impacts everyone in Riverdale, and 2) for the OG love triangle to be back. (I think that's my issue with the TV show Riverdale: everybody is too happy in their relationships and the Betty-Archie-Veronica love triangle that is the...

    This wasn't even a favorite out of the Archie series, but it just made me so happy at the end and I liked the way things were handled and they were realistic and I loved the writing and the artwork and I just really missed reading my Archies. ? ...

    I loved these issues so much! I ship Betty/Archie in the comics, and it looks like it is FINALLY headed in that direction. This was funny and sweet and sad and all that is wonderful about Archie. ...

    Love these! ...

    oh geez this was mildly better than volume 4 but also in many ways not better at all I am not sure I am going to keep reading this but then I remember I love teen drama and Archie's mishaps are actually hilarious to me because I am puerile. ...

    Just another whole-hearted Archie volume. So good! ...

    UGH. I HATE WAITING UNTIL THE NEXT BOOK!!!! ...

    Awww, Dilton <3 I had too many grinning like an idiot moments reading this volume. The feels, Archie fucking things up in an adorkable way, Betty being beast. This may be my favorite volume so far. ...

    2.5 Meh, it wasn?t as good/compelling/entertaining as the previous volumes. ...

    This comic was absolutely perfect. It picks right back up were the last volume ends which is very nice. But once I started this volume I couldn't stop. The entire time I was waiting for my dream couple to finally get together but I will have to wait for the next volume to see if things...

    The drama! Heartbreak and recovery! Must reads!!! ...

    I had been loving this series, but I was super uncomfortable with how disability was handled in this collection, starting with the horrible phrase "bound to a wheelchair." ...

    The drama... The angst... The intrigue... The freakin' feels... This is pretty much the most sappy, mushy, soap opera-worthy edition of this series yet! I'm not saying it was a bad thing. Because it wasn't. Not entirely. I was completely sucked in. Thus the 4 stars. But som...

    I flipping love these Archie comics, you guys. They're so wholesome and pure and funny and I just can't get enough. I rarely ever read books that actually make me laugh out loud, and Archie and the gang manage to make me do that at least once an issue. Volume 5 had decidedly more an...

    This was a really great continuation of the cliffhanger in Volume 4. I found myself tearing up throughout the first couple of issues, and while I do tend to cry easily, that doesn't mean that the characters weren't sweet. There were a few things that didn't grab me, including the w...

    It's been quite a shock to go back to Mark Waid's Archie after having just watched the first season of Riverdale. Waid does so much better with these characters, investing them with so much life and humanity. His B-story with Dilton in this collection for example, giving him a moment t...

    I love the way this series is going. In this volume, we continued the story of what happens to Betty after the drag race turned bad. But there are hints of the subplots from earlier volumes, and I can tell from the Prologue teased at the end of this volume that we're going to pick up w...

    I really liked this one, it was nice 1) to see how Betty impacts everyone in Riverdale, and 2) for the OG love triangle to be back. (I think that's my issue with the TV show Riverdale: everybody is too happy in their relationships and the Betty-Archie-Veronica love triangle that is the...

    If you wanted to stop here, you could. I mean, it's not over, but this had that typical never-ending Archie Andrews/ Riverdale feel to it. And I say that without a hint of sarcasm. It's the perfect sort of ending. But it's not. Because Archie is designed not to end. This is a ...

    This fifth volume, which collects Archie comics #23-27, continues the drama following the car crash at the end of Vol 4 in which Betty is injured after the ill-fated drag race between Archie and Reggie. As always, the art work is great, the story a delicate balance of pathos and teen h...

    ????? ? 5 stars Oh this is heartbreaking but seeing everyone work together, it's sweet! And all the drama...sheesh! Choosing - that's always hard. Relationships ended. Relationships began. Oh man, I thought that was the end of the series!!!! Sheesh, don't do that! ...

    After the cliffhanger of the last volume, I liked how they handled the outcome of Betty?s injury. She wasn?t miraculously cured (even though it may have felt that way) and it took time for her to heal. I would not say I was a fan of going back to the whole Betty versus Veronica dil...

    Volume five of Mark Waid's Archie is set in the aftermath of last volume's car crash. And, there are important repercussions here that produce good drama ... but honestly, we know they'll be mostly resolved by the end of this volume. Fortunately, that's not the heart of Mark Waid's ...

    I loved these issues so much! I ship Betty/Archie in the comics, and it looks like it is FINALLY headed in that direction. This was funny and sweet and sad and all that is wonderful about Archie. ...

    Love these! ...

    oh geez this was mildly better than volume 4 but also in many ways not better at all I am not sure I am going to keep reading this but then I remember I love teen drama and Archie's mishaps are actually hilarious to me because I am puerile. ...

    Just another whole-hearted Archie volume. So good! ...

    UGH. I HATE WAITING UNTIL THE NEXT BOOK!!!! ...

    Awww, Dilton <3 I had too many grinning like an idiot moments reading this volume. The feels, Archie fucking things up in an adorkable way, Betty being beast. This may be my favorite volume so far. ...

    2.5 Meh, it wasn?t as good/compelling/entertaining as the previous volumes. ...

    This comic was absolutely perfect. It picks right back up were the last volume ends which is very nice. But once I started this volume I couldn't stop. The entire time I was waiting for my dream couple to finally get together but I will have to wait for the next volume to see if things...

    The drama! Heartbreak and recovery! Must reads!!! ...

    oh geez this was mildly better than volume 4 but also in many ways not better at all I am not sure I am going to keep reading this but then I remember I love teen drama and Archie's mishaps are actually hilarious to me because I am puerile. ...

    Just another whole-hearted Archie volume. So good! ...

    UGH. I HATE WAITING UNTIL THE NEXT BOOK!!!! ...

    If you wanted to stop here, you could. I mean, it's not over, but this had that typical never-ending Archie Andrews/ Riverdale feel to it. And I say that without a hint of sarcasm. It's the perfect sort of ending. But it's not. Because Archie is designed not to end. This is a ...

    This fifth volume, which collects Archie comics #23-27, continues the drama following the car crash at the end of Vol 4 in which Betty is injured after the ill-fated drag race between Archie and Reggie. As always, the art work is great, the story a delicate balance of pathos and teen h...

    ????? ? 5 stars Oh this is heartbreaking but seeing everyone work together, it's sweet! And all the drama...sheesh! Choosing - that's always hard. Relationships ended. Relationships began. Oh man, I thought that was the end of the series!!!! Sheesh, don't do that! ...

    Mark Waid gets serious as Betty recovers from her injury. However, he does a wonderful job of dealing with some serious content while adding plenty of humor. Waid puts the characters through their paces, shakes up the status quo, and gives even minor characters like Dilton a chance to ...

    After the cliffhanger of the last volume, I liked how they handled the outcome of Betty?s injury. She wasn?t miraculously cured (even though it may have felt that way) and it took time for her to heal. I would not say I was a fan of going back to the whole Betty versus Veronica dil...

    Volume five of Mark Waid's Archie is set in the aftermath of last volume's car crash. And, there are important repercussions here that produce good drama ... but honestly, we know they'll be mostly resolved by the end of this volume. Fortunately, that's not the heart of Mark Waid's ...

    For some reason I thought this was the end of this creative team and I just about cried. This was my fav story arc of the series (been reading since day 1) and I was not ready for things to change. GAH I love this. ...

    [Read as single issues] After the harrowing events of Over The Edge, Betty Cooper's life will never be the same. There's a reason this arc is subtitled as 'The Heart Of Riverdale', because this volume really examines what Betty means, not just to our core characters, but to everyo...

    3.5 I don't think Archie will ever be as magical as it was in the initial Waid/Staples run but this is a nice return to smaller, character-driven stories. I really like Mok on art duties. Archie is still a putz, though. ...

    I like that this cover makes it look like the characters are having joint gay weddings. But this felt like the weakest storyline yet. It's the continuation of the "Betty's accident" plot from the last collection, which is trite and annoying because you know she's not actually going to ...

    A touching story on the true meaning of friendship. I adore all the characters or Riverdale! ...

    I enjoy this series but it also reminds me a lot of One Tree Hill. So i gotta be in the mood for it. ...

    It's been quite a shock to go back to Mark Waid's Archie after having just watched the first season of Riverdale. Waid does so much better with these characters, investing them with so much life and humanity. His B-story with Dilton in this collection for example, giving him a moment t...

    I really liked this series in the beginning but I feel like it's getting worse as it goes along. Too bad :( ...

    I love the way this series is going. In this volume, we continued the story of what happens to Betty after the drag race turned bad. But there are hints of the subplots from earlier volumes, and I can tell from the Prologue teased at the end of this volume that we're going to pick up w...

    I really liked this one, it was nice 1) to see how Betty impacts everyone in Riverdale, and 2) for the OG love triangle to be back. (I think that's my issue with the TV show Riverdale: everybody is too happy in their relationships and the Betty-Archie-Veronica love triangle that is the...

    This wasn't even a favorite out of the Archie series, but it just made me so happy at the end and I liked the way things were handled and they were realistic and I loved the writing and the artwork and I just really missed reading my Archies. ? ...

    I loved these issues so much! I ship Betty/Archie in the comics, and it looks like it is FINALLY headed in that direction. This was funny and sweet and sad and all that is wonderful about Archie. ...

    Love these! ...

    oh geez this was mildly better than volume 4 but also in many ways not better at all I am not sure I am going to keep reading this but then I remember I love teen drama and Archie's mishaps are actually hilarious to me because I am puerile. ...

    Just another whole-hearted Archie volume. So good! ...

    UGH. I HATE WAITING UNTIL THE NEXT BOOK!!!! ...

    Awww, Dilton <3 I had too many grinning like an idiot moments reading this volume. The feels, Archie fucking things up in an adorkable way, Betty being beast. This may be my favorite volume so far. ...

    2.5 Meh, it wasn?t as good/compelling/entertaining as the previous volumes. ...

    This comic was absolutely perfect. It picks right back up were the last volume ends which is very nice. But once I started this volume I couldn't stop. The entire time I was waiting for my dream couple to finally get together but I will have to wait for the next volume to see if things...

    The drama! Heartbreak and recovery! Must reads!!! ...

    I had been loving this series, but I was super uncomfortable with how disability was handled in this collection, starting with the horrible phrase "bound to a wheelchair." ...

    The drama... The angst... The intrigue... The freakin' feels... This is pretty much the most sappy, mushy, soap opera-worthy edition of this series yet! I'm not saying it was a bad thing. Because it wasn't. Not entirely. I was completely sucked in. Thus the 4 stars. But som...

    I flipping love these Archie comics, you guys. They're so wholesome and pure and funny and I just can't get enough. I rarely ever read books that actually make me laugh out loud, and Archie and the gang manage to make me do that at least once an issue. Volume 5 had decidedly more an...
