Check out the trailer for the first installment below and be sure to attend the Archie Panel tomorrow at 11 in Room 9 for more details on the follow up as well as other exciting developments from the house that Archie built!

Archie Comics is generally known for its humor, so when something dramatic happens, you can bet it’s going to have an impact as USA Today
observes. Life with Archie has had its share of ups and downs in the lives of the Riverdale cast, and the latest upset is the most shocking turn yet.
In Life with Archie #22, one of the gang will be shot. Despite being a utopia, free from prejudice, even Riverdale isn’t immune to crime, and when things go from bad to worse, someone takes a bullet. More drama ensues as Cheryl Blossom, recently diagnosed with cancer
, returns home to seek support from her old friends.
