Good ol’ Archie Andrews can’t seem to catch a break, having recently been discharged from hospital with a concussion courtesy of his ex-girlfriend Betty Cooper’s errant homerun baseball while sneaky Reggie Mantle tries to worm his way into the life of his current girlfriend, Veronica Lodge.

How could things get worse for Archie, you ask? How about if Veronica’s father, a man who has no shortage of contempt for our hero, ran for Mayor of Riverdale? We’ve got a preview of Archie #8 by Mark Waid, Veronica Fish, Andre Szymanowicz, Jen Vaughn & Jack Morelli, to give you a sneak peek at the Lodge campaign.

Hiram Lodge already has it out for Archie after discovering his daughter’s newest suitor destroyed his precious manor mid-way during construction before they moved to Riverdale. It’ll be interesting to see how Archie reacts to the mayoral campaign, because he always wants to impress Veronica, but Mayor Lodge would be in a position to make his life a living nightmare!
