‘Sugar, oh Honey, Honey’- Riverdale; CW vs Archie Comics

Hello Readers, welcome back to the library. Have you seen that we have the new Archie, Volume One from 2016, back in stock? We decided to get it in to coincide with the new live-action version of Archie, called Riverdale, by CW Entertainment. All I can say, my dears, is that you’re in for a treat.
I will attempt to make this review/comparison as spoiler free as possible.

Meet Archie Andrews – Archie, Volume One, 2016

Archibald “Archie” Andrews is your typical American high schooler; does average at school, is the popular American footballer, plays a guitar in the band ‘The Archies’. Did I mention he’s cool and popular? Like I said, typical American high schooler. People may know of Archie’s girlfriend, super smart and sporty Betty Cooper. Except, this comic starts by explaining that they are no longer together. Archie is extremely upset about it, but never tells the reader why they broke up. All he refers to is the “lipstick incident.” This is a running theme throughout the volume. And anyway, another girl (the new girl) called Veronica Lodge is beginning to draw Archie’s attention. Love triangle ensues.

Riverdale on the other hand is much more of a murder mystery. The story starts with a flashback; on July 4th Cheryl and Jason Blossom (twins -Head Cheerleader/Queen Bee and Quarterback of the Football team) head on a brother-sister outing to the local river.  Long story short, Jason does not make it back alive. The story that Cheryl repeats is that she “dropped a glove in the river, and Jason bent down to pick it up”.  Obviously, that story is extremely fishy.
As well as the overlying plot of murder and mayhem, there’s still; the love triangle, Archie’s still writing music and American football is where all of the plot seems to end up.

I would give Riverdale a solid 4 out of 5 for fidelity to the source comic. Obviously, characters have had to change to fit in with a television audience – characters have had to be spelled out for those who are either too young to remember the original Archie comics, or those that have only just tuned into their lives.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, it’s my lunch break, and the next episode of Riverdale is out.

Here’s the trailer to get you as excited for this series as I am –

    See, Tony was right! These predatory whores can even cloud men’s minds digitally! Why, I’ve been staring at this photograph of a lady in a Black Cat outfit for an hour, and sure, her breasts are Quasi-Enormous, but if I saw her on the street and asked her to describe, in detail, the Black Cat’s probability-altering powers, I guaran-’effing-tee that she’d have nothing to say about it, so what’s the point?
