PREVIEW: 'Riverdale: The Ties That Bind' Original Graphic Novel by Micol Ostow, Thomas Pitilli, and John Workman

The original graphic novel RIVERDALE: THE TIES THAT BIND is the second book from Archie's young readers' imprint, Archie Blue Ribbon, an original story set in the world of the hit CW TV show, Riverdale.

Now that the show's storyline has skipped years into the future, the book is also the last high school-era story. 


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?
