Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Archie, Jughead, Betty and Veronica have a lot of new friends and rivals when Riverdale High is invaded by fifty new kids! A nearby high school has closed due to budget cuts and 50 students and four teachers are transferred to Riverdale High. Archie and his friends have to step up their game when the new students bring serious competition to Riverdale. A stylish new girl who rivals Veronica, a talented photographer who threatens Betty's role at the school paper, and a tricky prankster even more cunning and crafty than Reggie are now all part of the mix! Amidst a healthy dose of slapstick humor and high school intrigue is an emphasis on the importance of embracing diversity, making new friends and resolving conflicts.

Review:

"Despite the introduction of an openly gay character, Kevin Keller, in 2010, the Archie universe is known more for its consistency of tone and style than for innovation or change. Generally, Riverdale High remains an unlikely agglomeration of happy-go-lucky teenagers who tend to avoid the social and hormonal pitfalls of adolescence. In this new collection, district budget cuts have resulted in the sudden addition of 50 new kids to the Riverdale student body. Some of them are direct counterparts to the lead characters: a new Miss Popularity threatens Veronica's claim to that title; a school photographer squeezes Betty from that role; and a shadowy figure known as 'Prankenstein' one-ups Reggie's efforts in that department. This collection's interlocked stories are built upon such newfound rivalries. As always, the writing is fast-paced; jokes are sprayed like buckshot, missing as many targets as they hit. Simple, easy-to-spot character models and plenty of action keep the visuals fluid and engaging. It's predictably lightweight stuff that will entertain most preteens. All ages."
