Archie finds himself sucked into a Bachelor competition by Cheryl, Betty, and Veronica in their attempts to discover the identity of his secret girlfriend (and raise money to help Jason Blossom). Meanwhile, Jughead and Reggie go further down the rabbit hole in the search for Reggie's dad.
Another beautifully drawn and quick moving issue from Spencer and Jarrell, Archie #704 deploys a retrospective narrator in Archie telling this tale of the seeming Everytown of Riverdale. The use of this narration mirrors that of the Riverdale television series yet still manages to be a distinct imaginative construct unto itself. There is something genuine about this series, despite its clear lighter-than-reality tone and hijinks. Archie continues to be a surprisingly well-executed series that I find an absolute delight to read each month.
A fun book for new and long-time fans of the Riverdale kids alike.
