Author(s): Mark Waid
Archie, one of the longest-running titles in comic book history, is rebooted here in this full-colour collection that brings together two of the most talented creators in comics, Mark Waid and Fiona Staples. Together they create a surprising and definitive take on Archie's origin - a story that has never been told.
