RECOMMENDED READING


'Tis the season for superhero fans and Riverdale alums - CW premieres new seasons of all its hit shows this week. DC comic book fans get to see what Kara Danvers, Barry Allen, Oliver Queen and the Legends have been up to when their respective series return this week. The network also drops new dramas Dynasty and Valor. The former is a reboot of the scandalous '80s soap about an uber-rich family. The latter centers on a group of elite U.S. Army helicopter pilots after a return from a dangerous mission. But perhaps the most anticipated return is the second season of Riverdale, the pulpy, critical darling that stole hearts last fall with juicy teen drama and small town scandal.
