This issue serves as something of a blowout, changing the direction of the book now that Toyo Harada is revealed the world for the tyrant he is… and Peter Stanchek is discovering there’s no chance of walking away. Plus there’s a variety of strips as well, from the tragic to the hilarious; “Fan Fiction” alone is a hoot. Definitely worth picking up.
Life With Archie #36
Yep, Archie takes a bullet. Honestly, this is more illustrated novel than comic book; there’s so much continuity to tie up it gets a little… elaborate unless you’ve been following the book from the beginning. It’s an interesting story though, and very much a summation of why Life With Archie started in the first place. Definitely of interest, although I might recommend picking up the collected editions to get the full effect.
This breather of a ghost story wraps up with a bang, and then some. Laurence Campbell in particular is on his game, here, with some great, creepy art. Highly recommended.
