We've known for a few months now that Archie Comics' Life With Archie series, about the possible adult lives of the Riverdale teens, will end with lead character Archie Andrews' death.

Over the past few years, Archie Comics has released some pretty unexpected comics, not the least of which was the recent crossover with KISS. Now, they've unveiled their latest surprise: A crossover with Glee, FOX TV's musical drama about a high school glee club, set to run in upcoming issues of Archie.

We were pleasantly surprised when Archie Comics introduced its first openly gay main character to the iconic Riverdale tradition, and the publisher has impressed us again with the news that all Archie titles will be released simultaneously in print and digital formats. That's right, starting April 1 all new Archie comics will be available for sale in iVerse's Archie app on the same day the print versions go on sale in comic book stores and elsewhere.
