Archie #1 Review

Archie2015_01-0 Tomorrow sees the release of the first Archie #1 in over seventy years, as Mark Waid and Fiona Staples reboot the franchise. As you might have expected with creators like Waid and Staples, the end result is a thoughtful, entertaining debut with excellent artwork. If you are going to reboot a franchise, there are few creators that you would be better off with trusting with the exercise. What is particularly impressive with the first issue is how it manages to be a throwback to the early days of Archie without allowing the nostalgic aspect of the book to become a distraction with the actual story itself. In other words, this is a book that pays tribute to its forebears with only the slightest of nods and spends the majority of the tale updating the main characters in such a fashion that it would fit in with an Archie tale from nearly any year while still working primarily as an Archie tale for the year 2015. No one got an update for the sake of getting an update. Characters are just given considerate re-envisionings. It’s a great first issue.
