I finally got my hands on the second volume of The Married LIfe. Mr. Lodge is still very much the villain in both of the story lines although Fred Mirth has been added to the Archie Marries Betty storyline. although maybe Mirth is in both story lines? I still find myself confused sometimes, especially since a lot of the rest of the couples are working out the same way.

I am beginning to wonder two things, one, if the stories are somehow going to come together via some kind of time traveler and tw...more
Growing up is hard to do, as Archie, Veronica, Betty and the rest of the Riverdale gang are finding in the two divergent futures that split after Archie married Veronica and Archie married Betty. In this second installment of the ongoing Married Life series, Reggie faces imprisonment and investigates some shady land deals, Moose proves his worth as a mayor and as a head janitor dealing with never-ending school disasters, Jughead and Midge find out that their booming business comes with a high pr...more

Archie Is Married. Now The Real Story Begins. Twice.

I have always been a Betty person. Every Archie story I have ever enjoyed has me cheering for them to finally get together and leave Veronica pouting. My long standing wish has been partially granted in the past few years with the newest incarnation of these beloved characters. And I am totally and completely hooked.

The drama all started when the new CEO of Archie came into the 70 plus year old company and wanted to shake the universe up. This...more
I was completely addicted to Archies as a kid. When we went on road trips, a treat would be to get one of the Archie digests at the stores where we stopped. I have a somewhat impressive collection at home.

Anyway, something inspired me to check out the first three volumes of the updated The Married Life series, which plays with multidimensional space travel and fates and destinies, and the choices we make as adults. Corporate espionage, romantic entanglement, big city vs. small town lifestyles,...more
I feel like in this second book, my expectations have settled. In the first book, it felt like anything could happen – like the Archie comics could have gone totally off the rails and plunged into some kind of nightmarish/hyperrealistic Dennis Cooper universe. But while the content of the comics has gotten serious – death comes to Riverdale, et cetera – we're still in the old Archie universe, where certain types of evil and harm are simply absent, and everyone is well-provided for at the end of...more
1) Where is Jellybean, Jughead's little sister?
2) What the hell happened to Jason Blossom's beautiful face?
3) Will we ever see Cheryl Blossom/Arch and Betty's New York friends ever again?
4) Why are the couples so similar in both storylines?
5) Will we ever see the Pussycats or Sabrina?
6) The crap does Dilton think he's doing, and how long can this entire thing continue?

1) Loved seeing Polly, Betty's secret sister. Literally in all the Archies I've read I've prolly only seen her...more

I thought it was interesting to see where everyone is going and how both story lines show totally different aspects of some characters. While the characters are true to themselves, we get to see a side of them that shows what happens when you have to grow up.
I enjoyed book 2 in this series just as much as book 1. It is really entertaining, and I love both the writing and the artwork. The character development in "Archie: The Married Life" is just great. There is more depth here than in any other Archie comic I have read before. I just genuinely adore these characters and I am just so happy that this series exists! Book 2 ends on a crazy cliffhanger, so I very much want to get my hands on the next installment, pronto! I would highly, highly, highly r...more
Didn't read this volume at all, whereas I read portions of book 1.

Although my husband and our children held this series in high regard I just didn't like the realistic portrayal of the characters and I didn't care for art as I prefer the more simplistic style from my youth in the 80s. I didn't actually finish either book 1 or two as I lost interest and am a tad bit rushed as these Archie books are public library copies and I've already got a pile of 6 other Lynda La Plante books so maybe I'm jus...more

I think this book is interesting because it talk about a boy name archie going on a date with Betty and Ron. Betty and Ron are both a girl that like Archie. Archie accept them both on a date. Archie went on a date with Betty first and then the next day he went on a date with Ron. The next day, Ron and betty found out that Archie went on a date with both of them so at the end, archie need to pick ONE girl to go out with. it either Ron or betty. if you want to know more, read this book.
Where the first volume gets stuck having to recap the time-space shift of the "Will You Marry Me?" arc, this volume is able to hit the ground running. Loads of emotion and mature situations, this definitely isn't the Archie you grew up with. Ends with a cliffhanger that will leave you clambering for volume 3.
Just about the best comic book/graphic novel I ever read. We finally begin to piece together what the heck is going on with Dilton Doiley and Mr. Lodge. I sincerely hope there is a third volume of this amazing series. Can't wait.
The overarching story is still confusing, and it's hard to keep track what has happened in which universe but overall still enjoyable
4 1/2 stars this time rather than 5 as the amazing artist Norm Breyfogle does not draw the entire interior art of Book 2.
I flew thru this one and was disappointed when I learned that there is a third volume that isn't out yet!
Still not quite sure what is going on here - mind has been blown.
Although was Mr Lodge always that mean?

I read the comics as a kid, but these are different. So much drama, I love it :)
