Comments: Here we check in on Archie and Veronica ten years after their marriage. They now have two kids. Archie is overworked so Ronnie takes over she is going to get things fixed better. All the rest of the gang we get updated on. The aged looks to all the characters are done just right. There is drama as Cheryl is still up to her old tricks and using people is still her thing. Ambrose seems out of place.
Next, we look at what if Archie married Betty ten years after the marriage. The art beautifully captures the fact that it is now ten years later. There is still drama going on. Reggie has grown up as you might expect. All the rest have to. Archie though is doing what he can for his career but he is sad it has not taken off. For the most part, the gang’s lives have been normal and full filling. There is a mystery here though that we need to and want to know more of.
This look into a possible future does give insights into all the gang’s lives ad the directions they could take.
