We caught up with comic legend Mark Waid to talk about his rebooted run of Archie, and he revealed a major story coming up that will leave a lasting impact on the world of Riverdale.

Waid’s run on Archie has revitalized the classic franchise in a big way. He said they wanted to do something ambitious ramping up to issue No. 25. Instead of falling into the standard comic book tropes, they came up with an arc called “Over the Edge.” Wait revealed it starts with Archie in a drag race on a precarious mountain edge that doesn’t end well.

Then, the next few issues dig into the mystery of who has been affected by this crash and how the rest of the cast reacts. It sounds like it could make for an interesting mystery to shake up the status quo, and yeah, we’re curious who wound up at the bottom of that cliff.
