These Archie comic-inspired innovations show how popular and beloved the kids from Riverdale really are.

Proven to have a lasting influence and with many beloved fans from around the world, this is the epitome of a classic comic without superheroes. Relatable, goofy and always bringing the drama, the story lines of this comic always connected to readers in a big way.
