Archie Comics has been completely revamped and ARCHIE #1 begins the series again anew. Set in the present day, Archie has lived next door and been best friends with Betty since they were five. The issue begins with Archie breaking the 4th wall and explaining that he and Betty have recently broken up because of the "lipstick incident." It's never explained what that is, but the rest of the comic has most of Archie's friends (except for Jughead) trying to get Archie and Betty elected the Homecoming King and Queen so they'll get back together. Although the setting has really been revamped, I really like the style and story of the new Archie and found ARCHIE #1 a great read. I'm looking forward to reading more in the series.
