Learn how to date the Riverdale way in the Archie Comics February 2021 Solicitations

Archie Comics has released solicitations information and images for titles scheduled to ship in February 2021. The flagship Archie series remains absent from the schedule, as do any of the other titles in either the main or Archie Horror lines. The first original Riverdale graphic novel arrives, though, as does a classic-style one-shot that offers readers some dating advice. Considering Archie’s history with Betty & Veronica, I’m on the fence about whether that advice will be useful or not.

Check out the full text and images of the Archie February 2021 solicitations below.

ARCHIE

RIVERDALE: THE TIES THAT BIND (OGN)

Archie’s second original graphic novel features the world of CW’s Riverdale! Four interconnected stories trap each of our main characters in a unique high-stakes conflict over the course of a few pressure-cooker hours! Jughead’s locked in and left behind with Moose at Stonewall Prep, Veronica is trapped with Cheryl at a nearby suburban shopping mall, Betty and Polly are stalked by a possible madman when a girls’ night goes horribly awry and Archie is held hostage by a ‘long lost relative’ of Fred’s who’s come to town seeking payback of any and every kind. Will Archie and company even make it to sunrise? If they do, will they ever be the same again?
