Comments: Here we look at Reggie and Archie’s relationship. It turns out Betty has been egging Reg on for most of their lives. She has been taunting him. Betty is responsible in part for how Reggie treats others. Betty is a big part of why Reggie is the way he is. She is not all Miss Nice.
The art is more realistic than the classic style of Archie comics.
Reggie now is definitely not Mr. Nice guy. We see the hatching of a plan that will cause trouble for all involved. Reggie is a mean guy. He is just misguided and has never had the support that others have.
The way Vader Reggie’s dog narrates the story gives it a unique and fun style.
The Classic back up story is from Archie’s Rival Reggie # 1 from 1949. “The Jokers” by George Frese. Reggie we see here is not all that bad. He can be reasoned with to.
