Review: Archie Meets Batman ’66 #1

Writers Jeff Parker and Michael Moreci bring together two new properties in the popular “Batman ’66” line of comics that have reinvigorated the property and brought a lot of fun with it. While the actual formal meeting of the two properties doesn’t take place in this issue it reads like a pretty basic Batman stopping the bad guys as it sets up while Riverdale gets roped in to things.

There’s a lot of characters thrown in to the issue and it feels right at home with everything that has been set up to this point. The tone, the look, it all comes together in a familiar package but with the new addition of Archie and his friends.

A lot of that has to do with the art from Dan Parent, colors by Kelly Fitzpatrick, and ink by J. Bone. Batman, Robin, Batgirl, and the rogues all look as expected, great that is, and the Archie kids look right at home. It’s two properties that blend together very well. There is an issue with one panel when Veronica switches outfits from the previous one but it could be time passing to explain that. Everything though works great and even the crazier aspects of Batman ’66 still feel right at home and blend with the Riverdale kids. It’s interesting in how visually the two work together.

While we don’t get to see Batman with Archie in this issue, it’s still a good start and one that gives us a Batman adventure you can read in one issue. It’s a good start and brings the two properties together in a smooth way. Hopefully we’ll get more of the two property’s characters actually together in the second issue but kicking things off, this is a good way to go about it.

Archie Celebrates 700 Issues with a New Creative Team Plus Betty & Veronica #1 in December

Archie and the Riverdale gang have delighted generations of fans through comics and television series for over seventy-five years. This fall, the longest-running series in the Archie Comics lineup reaches a major milestone with November’s Archie #700, kicking off a bold new era in Riverdale history.

Written by Nick Spencer with art by fan-favorite Marguerite SauvageArchie #700 picks up several months after the climax of writer Mark Waid’s historic run on the reimagined Archie series, which reaches its conclusion this Wednesday in issue #32.

Launching in November, issue #700 sees Archie and his friends returning to school with new storylines, new mysteries unfolding, and a bombshell secret romance soon to be revealed.

Additionally, this October will see the release of Archie #699, a special recap issue that covers the key events from the ARCHIE series including the #LipStickIncident, Over the Edge, Heart of Riverdale and more. This issue will be available at comic book shops and digitally for a special promotional price of $1 and is geared towards new and returning readers.

Changes to the flagship Archie series aren’t the only shakeups in store. Best friends Betty and Veronica will once again headline their own series in December’s Betty & Veronica #1. Spearheaded by writer Jamie L. Rotante, fresh off her critically acclaimed alternate universe series Betty & Veronica: Vixens, the new mini-series sees B&V dealing with the life changes of senior year and the impending threat of splitting up as they each make plans for college and beyond.

The launch of Archie #700 and Betty & Veronica #1 this fall is just the start as more new stories and new perspectives by the comic industry’s top creators are in the works as Archie Comics heads into 2019.
