If you are anything like at least two thirds of the teenage population, you have probably heard of, known about, watched, or obsessed over the teen mystery drama series, Riverdale. This TV show has had us glued to the TV every Wednesday for almost 2 years and has kept us waiting on the edge of our seats for the newest season, which premiered on October 10, 2018. What many of us have failed to realize is that Riverdale actually evolved into a TV show from a comic book.
These comic books were known as the Archie Comics and were the one of the longest running and most popular comic book series in the comic industry. Presenting a subversive take on the story of Betty, Veronica, Archie and Jughead, Riverdale had stolen the hearts of many of the comic book fans and even those of us who had no knowledge of these spectacular comics.
For those of you who have never seen this hit TV series, it follows the lives of four best friends as they struggle to solve the mysteries and explore the surrealism of their supposedly plain small-town lives. With the addition of a school newspaper, rival gangs, and the lives of their parents being intertwined, the show continues to grow weirder by the episode. This being said, I certainly know what my Wednesday plans will be!
