  • Riverdale #1
  • Royal City #1

Lot’s of R’s this week. Let’s start with those:

Riverdale is a one-shot of my favorite garbage TV show. So I have to try this weird twist on the Archie universe. Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa is a pretty stellar writer, as far as I’m concerned, so this should be fun.

Royal City is Jeff Lemire’s new solo book. It should be quite sad. I have a fear this will rope me in too hard and I’m going to have to dropĀ something to really keep up on this book.

Rat Queens was my pick of the week on the show (out tomorrow!) if only because I’m scared of the reaction to this book. Sadly, Rat Queens has been laced with controversy despite the incredible story that it delivers. It’s hard to see past that sometimes, but I am trying the relaunch.

Nailbiter comes to a close this month. It seems so sudden. I really saw this book going for another 20-30 issues before it wrapped (ala Chew, Y – The Last Man, etc.), but I have faith Williamson and Henderson will deliver a fitting, grizzly ending to this fantastic series.
