Dog's Eye View – Showing A Deeper Look At Reggie Mantle

Just had a chance to read the first issue of Reggie and Me #1 from Archie Comics. The issue, that ships December 7th, is a story told by Vader, Reggie Mantle's dog. This may be the only way that you could do a comic starring Reggie, from the point of view of someone that loves him unconditionally. Tom DeFalco does a good job of showing a more sympathetic side of the classic villain of Riverdale. Some folks may even end up liking Reggie when all things are said and done.

Script: Tom DeFalco Art: Sandy Jarrell, Kelly Fitzpatrick, Jack Morelli

There is no one more loved, revered, admired and adored in Riverdale than…  Reggie Mantle? Well, at least Reggie doesn't think there's anyone as loved and admired as himself. And his best friend can back that idea up—his best friend, of course, being his dog, Vader. The unstoppable duo is known around town for pulling the funniest pranks, getting the hottest dates and throwing the best parties. And if anyone even dares to compete with them, there is going to be hell to pay. Come take a look at the life of your hero, the handsome, hilarious Reggie Mantle.reggieme_01_14 reggieme_01_15 reggieme_01_16-17
