Pete Woods is one of the more underrated artists working in comics. He’s worked for both Marvel (Deadpool/Generation X Annual ’99/Excalibur) and DC (Robin/Legion Lost/Countdown), as well as many other publishers. He’s now coming to the town of Riverdale as the new artist on the modern on-going Archie series.
This is a great pairing, as Woods’ distinct, cartoony, and expressive style is tailor made for Archie and the gang.
It’s also the start of a new story arc, and a perfect jumping on point, if you have been wanting to check out the excellent work writer Mark Waid, has been doing on the title.
