If there's one thing we have learned throughout the history of comics, it's that if you joke about something ridiculous long enough, then eventually, it's probably going to happen. Which, I imagine, is how we got the upcoming variant cover for IDW's Judge Dredd where the stone-faced lawman of the future finally meets Archie Andrews.
Okay, okay, so right now, it's only a variant cover as part of IDW's upcoming celebration of Archie's 75th Anniversary, which will see a pretty amazing set of covers where IDW's various titles --- including Transformers, Jem and the Holograms and Star Trek --- meet up with Riverdale's favorite teens. Check them out below!
As much as they've been getting coverage for the bold new direction in stuff like the reboot of the core titles and the horror-themed imprint led by Afterlife With Archie, one of Archie Comics' greatest strengths has always been that it has so much content in its back catalog. It's one of the reasons that Archie has been able to put out so many of those massive 500-page Best Of collections in recent years, but one of the most interesting the publisher has done with all that content has been its approach to digital releases.
You might have missed them if you don't keep an eye on Comixology, but the usual idea is that Archie puts out a bunch of reprints built around a particular theme, like when it collected all the stories about pro wrestling from over the years. This week, it's reprinting "Queen B," a pretty fantastic story about Betty and Veronica's most bitter rival, by some of Archie's best creators.
As you may have heard, Archie is relaunching their flagship title in July, bringing an end to what has been the longest continuously published American comic that has never been rebooted, after 666 issues. In addition to a new direction from Mark Waid and Fiona Staples, the relaunch is getting a whole slew of variant covers focusing on the revamped design for everyone's favorite two-timing redheaded high schooler, from artists like J. Scott Campbell, Dean Haspiel, and more.
Now we've got seven of those variant covers to reveal, bringing the total number of Archie #1 variants to approximately one hundred million (and all of them awesome). Check them out below, from Tania Del Rio, Genevieve F.T., legendary Superman and Shazam artist Jerry Ordway, and more!
If you're a longtime ComicsAlliance reader, you may have already heard us sing the praises of Tania Del Rio's fantastic 42-issue run on Sabrina the Teenage Witch. It's a great run, combining Del Rio's fantastic manga-inspired artwork with an ongoing Harry Potterish story of a magical world in the grips of a conspiracy and rebellion, with a huge helping of romance thrown in for good measure...
Created by former Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Battlestar Galactica writer Jane Espenson and actor Brad Bell, Husbands is a live-action internet sitcom that stars Bell and Sean Hemeon as gay celebrity couple Cheeks and Brady, a scandal-prone actor and a recently self-outed athlete who were married under particularly drunken circumstances, but who are determined to make it work or else risk hurting America's broadening support of same-sex marriage equality...
We've had a little fun with the idea of switching the genders of Archie characters, but in this month's issue of Archie, we're getting the official version. In Archie #636, Tania Del Rio and Gisele bring us "The Great Switcheroo," in which Archie is transformed into Archina along with the rest of a gender-swapped Riverdale...
This week, Archie Comics announced that they were teaming up with the animation company Moonscoop to bring Sabrina the Teenage Witch back to television. It's not exactly a surprising move; thanks to a previous animated series and a sitcom starring Clarissa Melissa Joan Hart, Sabrina's been one of Archie's most prominent properties outside of comics for years...
Sonic The Hedgehog has achieved something few comic book characters from the 1990s have: his title has survived for over a dozen years! Why? Chalk it up to a fiercely loyal fan base (comprised of a surprising number of adults in addition to children) who take their hero as seriously as fans of Star Trek
