Archie Comics has released preview pages for Riverdale #5, the latest issue of their comic series set in the same universe as the hit CW TV series, and it looks as if Reggie Mantle and Pussycat lead singer Josie McCoy could be headed for romance.
Reggie Mantle and Josie McCoy have long been the “it kids” at Riverdale, and maybe it’s only logical that these two would hook up. But as this issue delves deep into each of their characters, things don’t go according to plan. How will Reggie prove his worthy of Josie’s attention, and will she turn him down or give him a chance?
Featuring scripting by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, Tessa Leigh Williams and Brian E. Paterson and art by Thomas Pitilli, Andre Szymanowicz and Janice Chiang, Riverdale #5 offers a ton for fans of either the Archie comics or the Riverdale TV series.
