Like the previous volume, it is separated by decade with descriptions of each story provided by employees of Archie Comics and famous fans of Archie.
Also it includes a couple of stories such as Wilbur, Ginger, Super Duck, and several different incarnations/interpretations of Sabrina.
Some of the stories are a bit longer compared to the fist volume, which makes sense.
Now, why am I giving this book only 4 stars? Well, the backseat characters with their own stories seem to have a bit more prominence in this volume compared to the last. This isn't so much a bad thing, but it means less Archie and the gang. Even worse, due to the longer stories we get even less when you combine that to all the Josie and Sabrina stories. In fact, the entire 1950s decade in the book is absent of an Archie story, the only stories covered are Wilbur, Ginger, Pat the Brat, Cosmo the Merry Martian and Katy Keene.
Considering this is a Best of Archie, there should be a bit more emphasis on Archie and the Gang. I think they should dedicate separate Best of books to Josie, Sabrina, Wilbur, Ginger and so on.
Overall though, I still think the book is worth getting if you are like me and don't want to invest in all the double digests. I'd also consider looking into Archie Super Comics Digest which is only $6.98 at B&N (for some reason its not sold on Amazon).
I hope we see more 400+ page volumes of Archie because its the best bang for your buck and gives casual fans such as myself a chance to get into Archie without all the money spent on digests and double digests.
Firstly, this 'Best of' arrived blazingly fast from Amazon. Shipped on time. Amazon rules when it comes to delivery. I don't know how they do it.
Package was sturdy and books in mint condition (I bought three Archie's). Big smile when received since its a whopping 400 pages or something like that.
I highly recommend this purchase!!!! Well worth every cent. Will buy more of the 'Best of' in a heartbeat. Thanks to Amazon for selling these gems. My sis will be
very very happy.
This digest size book capture the spirit of Archie through the ages. This includes issues one of Archie meets Kiss & Archie 600 (the first issue of Archie Marries Veronica). Reprinting these first chapters would make the reader wet their appetites to buy the whole graphic novels of either book.
In 400 pages, I would have wanted more that was offered, so now I wait for volume three
