    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...

    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 ...

    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...

    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...

    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. ...

    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. ...

    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...

    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...

    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 ...

    Following up on the surprisingly dramatic conclusion of the fourth volume of Mark Waid's run on Archie, we open with Betty Cooper temporarily(?) wheelchair-bound as a result of a car accident. This is heavy stuff for the generally light-hearted world of Archie Comics, and while Waid ke...

    Another excellent volume of the rebooted series. This volume finds the perfect mix of classic Archie humor and antics with serious, emotional storylines. Now, more than ever, has this series come into its own and just keeps getting better and better, always with a well-done cliffhanger...

    Another solid entry in this series. Mark Waid blends humor and emotion well, and handles teenage drama better than some. That being said, I feel like the hint of lasting change that came at the end of volume four was wiped away by the end of this book. I realize Riverdale needs to be a...

    Still well-written, and with a interesting and realistic progressions for most of the characters. This might be the final storyarc I read, not because it's bad, but because I've never really been into Archie or similar teen drama comics. Kudos to Waid and his co-creators for keeping my...

    Public library copy. I haven't bought this volume but plan to do so. I'm finally over the rotation of artists on the book. The story has been great being modern and all, but still staying true to the classics. Teenagers or older readers are certain to like this book, even more so if...

    "Betty's the heart of Riverdale, and now she's broken." Umm... this series has taken such an unexpected turn and I'm still trying to figure out how I feel about it. Vol 5 has been the most dramatic one yet and it kind of feels like they're turning the comics into Riverdale. Anywa...

    Betty deals with partial paralysis and the potential for life in a wheelchair. Riverdale deals with the absence of Betty. This is Archie's side of the story, so it mostly deals with Archie's guilt and his absolute inability to help. It's sweet, in his hapless way, but I'm looking forwa...

    Tensions rise between the Coopers and the Andrews after Betty is severely hurt in an auto accident. While she is recovering, Archie finds his feelings for her have deepened. I never liked the old school Archie comics, but I?m sure enjoying this run! ...

    Given how Vol 4 went, I was pretty nervous about where things were going. Thankfully Waid seems to have things well in hand. While things are still very much in the idealistic world of Riverdale, there still manages to be plenty of realistic drama to be had. ...

    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. ...

    3.5 stars. I wasn?t planning on finishing this series but this TPB came through and my local comic book store held it for me so I took a chance. I still love the story but it is rather bland... Wholesome and sweet, but still bland. ...

    This volume reminded me why this is the ONLY dramatic Archie series I can take. No Riverdale, no Road to Riverdale, just Waid's Archie. And sometimes, even this one is a bit much to take. ...

    This was a fun one. I didn't think that the art was as strong in this volume as in the previous one, but the story was still compelling. It must be tough to balance that eternal love triangle (or parallelogram if you count Dilton). I like that Jughead and Dilton are more than comic rel...

    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 ...

    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...

    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. ...

    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. ...

    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...

    Following up on the surprisingly dramatic conclusion of the fourth volume of Mark Waid's run on Archie, we open with Betty Cooper temporarily(?) wheelchair-bound as a result of a car accident. This is heavy stuff for the generally light-hearted world of Archie Comics, and while Waid ke...

    Another excellent volume of the rebooted series. This volume finds the perfect mix of classic Archie humor and antics with serious, emotional storylines. Now, more than ever, has this series come into its own and just keeps getting better and better, always with a well-done cliffhanger...

    Another solid entry in this series. Mark Waid blends humor and emotion well, and handles teenage drama better than some. That being said, I feel like the hint of lasting change that came at the end of volume four was wiped away by the end of this book. I realize Riverdale needs to be a...

    Still well-written, and with a interesting and realistic progressions for most of the characters. This might be the final storyarc I read, not because it's bad, but because I've never really been into Archie or similar teen drama comics. Kudos to Waid and his co-creators for keeping my...

    Public library copy. I haven't bought this volume but plan to do so. I'm finally over the rotation of artists on the book. The story has been great being modern and all, but still staying true to the classics. Teenagers or older readers are certain to like this book, even more so if...

    Betty deals with partial paralysis and the potential for life in a wheelchair. Riverdale deals with the absence of Betty. This is Archie's side of the story, so it mostly deals with Archie's guilt and his absolute inability to help. It's sweet, in his hapless way, but I'm looking forwa...

    Tensions rise between the Coopers and the Andrews after Betty is severely hurt in an auto accident. While she is recovering, Archie finds his feelings for her have deepened. I never liked the old school Archie comics, but I?m sure enjoying this run! ...

    Given how Vol 4 went, I was pretty nervous about where things were going. Thankfully Waid seems to have things well in hand. While things are still very much in the idealistic world of Riverdale, there still manages to be plenty of realistic drama to be had. ...

    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...

    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 ...

    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...

    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...

    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. ...

    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. ...

    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. ...

    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. ...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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 ...

    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...

    Another excellent volume of the rebooted series. This volume finds the perfect mix of classic Archie humor and antics with serious, emotional storylines. Now, more than ever, has this series come into its own and just keeps getting better and better, always with a well-done cliffhanger...

    Another solid entry in this series. Mark Waid blends humor and emotion well, and handles teenage drama better than some. That being said, I feel like the hint of lasting change that came at the end of volume four was wiped away by the end of this book. I realize Riverdale needs to be a...

    Still well-written, and with a interesting and realistic progressions for most of the characters. This might be the final storyarc I read, not because it's bad, but because I've never really been into Archie or similar teen drama comics. Kudos to Waid and his co-creators for keeping my...

    Public library copy. I haven't bought this volume but plan to do so. I'm finally over the rotation of artists on the book. The story has been great being modern and all, but still staying true to the classics. Teenagers or older readers are certain to like this book, even more so if...

    "Betty's the heart of Riverdale, and now she's broken." Umm... this series has taken such an unexpected turn and I'm still trying to figure out how I feel about it. Vol 5 has been the most dramatic one yet and it kind of feels like they're turning the comics into Riverdale. Anywa...

    Betty deals with partial paralysis and the potential for life in a wheelchair. Riverdale deals with the absence of Betty. This is Archie's side of the story, so it mostly deals with Archie's guilt and his absolute inability to help. It's sweet, in his hapless way, but I'm looking forwa...

    Tensions rise between the Coopers and the Andrews after Betty is severely hurt in an auto accident. While she is recovering, Archie finds his feelings for her have deepened. I never liked the old school Archie comics, but I?m sure enjoying this run! ...

    Given how Vol 4 went, I was pretty nervous about where things were going. Thankfully Waid seems to have things well in hand. While things are still very much in the idealistic world of Riverdale, there still manages to be plenty of realistic drama to be had. ...

    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. ...

    3.5 stars. I wasn?t planning on finishing this series but this TPB came through and my local comic book store held it for me so I took a chance. I still love the story but it is rather bland... Wholesome and sweet, but still bland. ...

    This volume reminded me why this is the ONLY dramatic Archie series I can take. No Riverdale, no Road to Riverdale, just Waid's Archie. And sometimes, even this one is a bit much to take. ...

    This was a fun one. I didn't think that the art was as strong in this volume as in the previous one, but the story was still compelling. It must be tough to balance that eternal love triangle (or parallelogram if you count Dilton). I like that Jughead and Dilton are more than comic rel...

    Really great instalment in the series. Like how this one showed some of the issues a wheelchair uses faces. The illustrations were amazing in this issue, a lot of emotions were so well conveyed. The development of relationships between the characters was really great too. ...
