"Archie comics are probably my favorite comics, but i really dont know why. they suck. they're poorly written, poorly drawn, and have extremely obvious plots. random words are bolded for no apparent reason, and every sentence ends in either an exclamation point, or a question mark!"
As someone with a box of Double Digests in my garage, I cannot say that Archie comics suck. I think they are swell. However, some of the criticism expressed is valid.
I have found it helpful to do the stretching exercises my physical therapist recommends. Do some core strengthening exercises, such as the ones highlighted at The Mayo Clinic. By keeping your core strong, your back won't put itself in a position to cause that sciatica pain you are having.
