And now they're just down to recombining older TPB collections into somewhat larger collections. This one looks to be FRESHMAN YEAR (Books 1 & 2) + NEW KIDS. Both good stories, though the Freshman Year plot points introduced by Batton Lash never seemed to ever be referred to in any subsequent stories. It did seem to be a little 'rebooty' at least in certain respects, like introducing Cheryl to Riverdale High in the gang's freshman year.

ACP continues to confuse the $#!+ out of me. What the heck is bannering a certain few titles with the logo "Archie Forever" supposed to mean, anyway?



When both ARCHIE #700 and BETTY & VERONICA #1 (of 5) came out around the same time, with both of the series' characters beginning their Senior year of school at Riverdale High, I assumed it meant that these titles were vaguely related somehow, i.e. they shared a common universe. Except now it doesn't seem like that can be the case. It took the previously-numbered ARCHIE series from 2015 to 2018 (and 32 issues worth of comicbook-time) to get through their Junior year, and it doesn't look like time is moving all that differently now in the new Archie series re-numbered from #700 onwards. Yet Betty & Veronica, who started Senior year in their issue #1 around the same time as Archie 700, raced through two semesters in 5 issues and are already ready for Graduation Day. Meanwhile, Sabrina is doing the girlfriend-boyfriend thing with Archie over in his title, but in her own title, she just seems to be arriving in Riverdale for the first time (and is it just me, or does the cover image above make Sabrina look Asian?)... so it doesn't seem like any of these books can inhabit the same continuity. So what the heck's the "Archie Forever" banner supposed to signify? It's not on other floppy-format comic titles that they publish, so it's not just some line-wide rebranding thing.

Just "Yeah, Archie forever, woo-hoo!" That's it. Nothing more complicated than that.

Soon after the Jughead reboot started, I realized the various New Riverdale titles don't inhabit the same continuity. Each title stands on its own and doesn't count in regard to the others.

The only seeming exception is Jamie Rotante's statement that, in her mind, the B&V miniseries occurs in the future of the Archie title, but I've already found contradictions. So it's best to think of each title as its own separate continuity.

Oh, and Sabrina's moving to Greendale in her new miniseries, not Riverdale.

So "Woo-hoo!", Rah, rah, go ACP! Unless it's a horror title, or a classic Archie title. Then I guess it's "Archie... whatever". Since they're just putting the banner on a few titles, if it were truth in advertising it should really say "ARCHIE FOREVER EPHEMERAL" It's pretty much the exact opposite of "forever". Everything is transitory, and they're building nothing lasting, or of an even semi-permanent nature. Or let's say, only permanent enough to fill the pages of a single trade paperback collection. You could also say that the new Sabrina comic doesn't have a bloody thing to do with Archie. Completely meaningless.

As far as the continuity stuff goes, we should all know by now that Archie doesn't seem to know what that is at times :P

I haven't been a fan of Amy Chu's writing up to this point, but Maria Sanapo is one of the better artists Dynamite has employed recently, so despite my disappointment that they didn't hire Dan Parent to draw the interior artwork, I'll give this one a shot. Sometimes with Dynamite I get the feeling like I'm collecting stamps or trading cards, though. With them, it seems like it's really about the covers more than anything else (and sometimes ACP leans that way too, since the 2015 reboot). There have been pleasant exceptions though, so let's hope RS&V Meet B&V is one of them.
