This week the CW is debuting a new live-action show based on Archie comics. It made me curious about last year’s reboot by Mark Waid and Fiona Staples which has achieved a good deal of critical acclaim. So this week I take a look at one of their issues and see whether the new format still uses the same tropes that the old, gag-based Archie comics used. For every trope I come across, I eat a cheeseburger like Jughead Jones.
