Reggie Mantle is the absolute worst. And look, that's not just me saying that, although I have very rarely believed anything as fervently, it's just a fact of life in Riverdale. As sure as Archie's klutzy, as sure as Jughead's hungry, Reggie is an amoral nightmare of a person. But that raises a question: Since young Mr. Mantle is starring in a comic called Reggie and Me, who could possibly stand being around him long enough to be the "and Me" in that equation?

Well, as it turns out, the series is narrated by Reggie's beloved dog, bringing the number of dog-narrated 2016 Archie comics to a surprising "two."

That's not all there is, though --- check out a preview of the first issue below from Tom DeFalco and Sandy Jarrell to see what else is in store for Riverdale's (least) favorite prankster.

Honestly, the only thing even remotely acceptable about that dude is his love of ABBA. Take me away, Frida.



There is no one more loved, revered, admired and adored in Riverdale than… Reggie Mantle? Well, at least Reggie doesn’t think there’s anyone as loved and admired as himself. And his best friend can back that idea up—his best friend, of course, being his dog, Vader. The unstoppable duo is known around town for pulling the funniest pranks, getting the hottest dates and throwing the best parties. And if anyone even dares to compete with them, there is going to be hell to pay. Come take a look at the life of your hero, the handsome, hilarious Reggie Mantle.
