Archie Firsts

ARCHIE FIRSTS Dark Horse Archives Special Edition
The collected first appearances of the major characters from Riverdale offer an enlightening glimpse at how fully-formed Archie, Jughead, Betty & Veronica and Reggie were from the beginning. Sadly (and typically), the re-colored, awkwardly re-lettered artwork neuters the archival aspect of an otherwise handsome book.

Relettered? Is that typical of these archival projects? That seems overkill.

Re-coloring is a constant. Re-lettering less so, but it's just as jarring.
