In comic book terms, there are few characters (and certainly few non-superhero characters) more iconic than Archie Andrews, so the launch of a brand new Archie #1 seems like a suitable occasion for us to mark. This first issue also includes a reprint of the very first Archie short story, which is… different. So how does this relaunch by Mark Waid and Fiona Staples measure up to the Archies of Jared’s youth? Back in show 3 we looked at the new horror version of Sabrina, which showed a different version of the Archie universe – how well or badly does a relatively traditional take play?

And in the return of Top Three/Worst One Ever, Jared takes us through his Top Three (actually Five) Enduring Comicbook Romances. It’s safe to say we don’t all agree with his choices.

Also: don’t forget to vote for the kind of comics you’d like to hear us talk about at onecomicpodcast.com.

    I’m enjoying the the Top Three sections as much as the reviews. Disappointed Jared didn’t mention Reed and Sue Richards this time though.
