Archie, Vol. 3

Archie, Vol. 3 by Mark Waid, Joe Eisma (Illustrator)     176 pages  

This is the third volume in the "new," contemporary Archie series. This volume features the introduction of Cheryl Blossom to the Riverdale mix. The issues revolve around Archie and Veronica missing each other, due to Veronica's new placement at a boarding school in Switzerland. She meets Cheryl there and a new rivalry is formed.

I love the illustrations for this new series. It features many different comic illustrators and I think it really gives the series a refreshing look. The contemporary feel is reinforced by a more diverse cast - which includes both POC characters as well as LGBTQ+ characters. The story is silly and goofy, but that's the main point. It's just a fun, quick read.
