Go Down A Rabbit Hole Of Comics Based On TV Shows Based On Comics With The ‘Archie’s TV Laugh Out’ Collection
If you've been paying attention, then you already know that we are on the verge of finally getting to see Riverdale, a CW series about Archie getting buff, Betty on Adderal, and Veronica dealing with a scandal that finds her father in prison. If that show does make it to television, though, it won't be the first time that Archie and the gang have been on television. There was a time, my friends, when Riverdale ruled the airwaves, and to mark that era, the publisher launched Archie's TV Laugh-Out.
Despite its title, a bizarre parody of Laugh-In, Laugh-Out managed to run for a solid sixteen years with a focus on TV-friendly characters like Josie and the Pussycats and Sabrina the Teenage Witch, and now, as part of Archie's 75th Anniversary celebrations, there's a digital-exclusive best-of collection coming next week. Check out a preview below for all the small-screen fun, including a weird little Star Wars parody that has some how become timely again!
And here's the official solicitation:
