Riverdale #1 is the 48-page, full color one-shot comic in the Riverdale comic book series, taking place after the events of the first episode. It was released on April 5, 2017.[1]


From Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and the writers of the new CW series Riverdale comes the first issue of the MUST-READ, brand new, ongoing comic series. Set in the universe of the TV series, the Riverdale comic offers a bold, subversive take on Archie, Betty, Veronica, Josie & the Pussycats and their friends, exploring small-town life and the darkness and weirdness bubbling beneath Riverdale’s wholesome facade. Features interior art by up-and-coming artist Alitha Martinez (Black Panther).[2]


  • Veronica has a friend named Camila. Most likely a nod to Veronica's actress in the TV series; Camila Mendes.
  • Twilight Drive-In was incorrectly named Starlight Drive-In.
