The ‘Riverdale’ Ongoing Series May In Fact Involve A Kumite [Preview]

Riverdale #1, Archie Comics
Riverdale #1, Archie Comics

Here's the only thing you need to know about Riverdale, the new ongoing series from Archie Comics that ties into the CW's truly bonkers television drama of the same name. So you know how every episode of the TV show is named after a movie, like "Touch of Evil" or "Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!"? It turns out that they're keeping that up for the comic and the two stories that make up this first issue, too.

One is called Bloodsport.

The other is called Bring It On.

Faith’s Got Some Ghost Problems In ‘Faith’ #8 [Preview]

Faith #8, Valiant Entertainment

Faith's got a lot of problems these days. That shouldn't be too surprising considering that we're barreling towards April and the launch of "Faithless," a new story that reunites all of her arch-villains into a super-team dedicated to her destruction, but before we get to that, she's going to have to get through some other horrors. And by that, I mean that she's had a dose of a freaky ghost.

That's only part of the problem, though. When the literal spectres of her past start to haunt her, Faith begins to doubt her own place in the world. Check out a preview of next week's issue below and see if maybe --- just maybe --- this might connect to the Faith Revenge Squad's impending debut!

Jody Houser, Joe Eisma, And Marguerite Sauvage Unleash ‘Faithless’ In April

Faith #10, Valiant Entertainment

If you already read Faith, then you've already seen Valiant's premiere heroine fighting off some of the biggest threats that the universe can throw at her: An invasion from the planet-conquering Vine, a demon int he form of a housecat, and even an actor who decided that being a supervillain was far more fun than playing one. But the good news is that Faith has only ever had to face them one at a time. Until now.

Jody Houser, Joe Eisma, and Marguerite Sauvage are teaming up the villains in "The Faithless," a new storyline debuting in April that finds Faith Herbert facing off with a gang of bad guys that all want revenge.

At Last, It’s Dilton’s Turn To Shine In ‘Archie’ #16 [Preview]

Archie #16, Archie Comics

With all the characters that have been reintroduced to us over the past few years of Archie's newly rebooted universe, there are a few that we've yet to really see in the spotlight --- and chief among them is young Dilton Doiley. I mean, yes, we know from reading Jughead that he is canonically and incontrovertibly an amazing dancer, but does he still have the ability to, say, build a time machine? We just don't know.

Or we didn't, until now. In this week's issue of Archie, Dilton finally reclaims the spotlight that he's been denied for so long. Or he will, anyway, if that downright satanic duo of Cheryl Blossom and Reggie Mantle don't get in the way. Check out a preview!

Cheryl Blossom’s Web Of Intrigue Continues To Tighten (And Jughead Maybe Buys A Phone) In ‘Archie’ #14 [Preview]

Archie #14, Archie Comics

In the solicitation for this week's Archie #14, there's a quick line about Cheryl Blossom and Veronica Lodge that casts their relationship into a new light, for me at least. I mean, I knew Cheryl was a wrecking ball with the kind of vast reach and Byzantine plans that you usually only see James Bond fighting against, but I hadn't considered that when she's around, Veronica suddenly becomes Betty. Well, she becomes sort of like Betty, just without the kind heart. But still, it puts her status as Riverdale's most disruptive force in pretty simple terms.

And that disruption is going to be on display this week in Archie #14. Check out a preview --- but keep in mind that Cheryl won't show up until after these pages. Instead, we find out all about Archie trying to get Jughead to buy a phone. Enjoy!
