After loving the first Married Life book, I rushed to pick up the second volume.

These books are great, much more interesting and true to life than the regular Archie comics. We're finally seeing these characters being written like real people and it's very easy to relate to the situations and drama they go through.

Since Archie Comics aren't as easy to find in the UK, if you're looking to get into them, graphic novels like this one are the perfect place to start. And with 320 pages you're getting a lot to read.

I can't wait for the next volume and will definitely keep on buying.

4.0 out of 5 stars Much More Than a Comic Book 16 April 2012
By Mimbelina - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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 price tag, Chuck and Nancy struggle with their newfound fame, Archie and Betty learn how difficult teaching careers can be, and Archie and Veronica may be torn apart by Lodge Industries and Veronica's ruthless father. Lurking behind the scenes is the mysteriously elusive Dilton Doiley; what part does he play in these two alternate universes that are so different and yet so very similar?

Though the novelty of the series has worn off in this second book, I still enjoyed reading it, though I continue to be a little perplexed and unhappy with Mr. Lodge's character. He has yet to redeem himself and become the stuffy but still lovable Hiram Lodge that I knew in the old comics. However, like the previous book, the beautiful artwork, charged plot and believable and realistic characters provided for a very good read despite that continued flaw. I thought the series would end with this book but there is obviously more to come...I can't wait to see how the authors resolve the plots and tie the two futures together.
4.0 out of 5 stars Archie got hitched! 27 Sept. 2015
By Book Club Mom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Imagine your favorite Archie comic book characters, once forever locked in the glory days of high school, now twenty-something adults, making their way in the fantasy town of Riverdale. You may ask, “Who did Archie marry? Betty or Veronica?” Well in an alternate universe, anything can happen and here is where Archie lives in two worlds, married to fresh-faced and hard-working Betty in one, and hitched to rich-girl Veronica, daughter of the ruthless, money hungry Hiram Lodge.

I didn’t know what to expect when I picked up this familiar looking comic book. I’d read plenty of Archie comic books as a girl, but I’d never read a full graphic novel before. This is a substantial work of more than 300 pages of entertaining plot, dialogue and terrific graphics, with a great variety of illustrations, bubble thoughts, plot summaries, zoom-outs, silliness, subtle jokes and amusing wordplay. In addition, there are just enough shady characters and wholesome romantic innuendo to sustain a mysterious plot.

Both stories revolve around Mr. Lodge’s obsession with controlling the town of Riverdale and the upcoming trial of Reggie Mantle, who has been charged with trying to bribe the mayor. An additional common subplot covers Jughead’s rapidly expanding Chocklit Shoppe business, soon to be a nationwide franchise.

Paul Kupperberg is a veteran comic book writer and does an excellent job presenting these modern and edgy stories, while retaining the happy fantasy of the eternally optimistic and ultimately good and universally good-looking Archie characters.

Here's my recommendation: if you’re looking for a fun diversion and an easy read, try reading one of these graphic novels. There’s a lot more to them than you think!

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed the SciFi Aspects of the story 5 Aug. 2013
By Michael J. Zeno - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I enjoyed the first three volumes of this series. I liked reading about the Archie folks growing up and moving on, but I really liked the secondary scifi story where there were two (or more?) worlds of Archie. The secondary story continues through Volumes 1 through 3 with volume 3 containing the conclusion. Bonus: the first two volumes have a lot of stellar work from comic's mainstay Norm Breyfogle.

I would recommend this book to comics lovers, Archie fans, fans of sitcoms comfortable with the maturity levels of ABC Family shows.
5.0 out of 5 stars Just about the best comic book/ graphic novel I ever read. 18 May 2012

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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.
