Even with as strange as Archie Comics have gotten over the past few years, I don't think any of us ever expected to see an all-new ongoing series where Archie, Betty, Veronica and the rest of the gang had to contend with the apocalyptic rise of the undead. I know I didn't, and I'm pretty comfortable in saying that I think about Archie comics way more than the average person.
And yet, here we are: In October, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Francesco Francavilla are launching Afterlife With Archie, and I could not be more excited to see how young Mr. Andrews deals with trying to juggle two girlfriends and a ravenous horde of Zombies. I spoke with Aguirre-Sacasa to find out just what the tone would be, and why the whole thing is all Reggie's fault.
I've been a pretty big fan of Archie Comics for quite a while now, but it's always bugged me that I've been relegated to the role of a passive observer. No matter how many comics I read, I can't warn Archie of the folly of making two dates at once, or encourage Jughead to maybe mix things up with a salad now and then. Now, however, that is all about to change, as the Archie: Betty or Veronica? game for iOS will give me absolute, godlike control of Riverdale itself!
If you've read Prophet, you've already seen Brandon Graham put his own incredibly enjoyable spin on a property that you might not expect to match up with his unique sensibilities. This week, though, he and artist Emily Carroll went a step further by retelling a classic
George Gladir, the award winning writer best known for his incredibly prolific work at Archie Comics, died Wednesday night at the age of 88.
In a career that spanned seven decades, Gladir contributed countless stories of Archie and his pals as well as writing for Cracked magazine for over thirty years. His most lasting creation, though, is Sabr
As much as I love Archie Comics, I've always had a problem with their publishing schedule, in that there's just not enough of them to meet my demand. I mean really, how am I supposed to keep up with everyone's favorite polyamorous teen when I'm limited to Archie, Jughead, Betty, Veronica, Betty & Veronica, Betty & Veronica Digest, Betty & Veronica Double Digest, Archie Digest, World of Archie Digest, Jughead Digest, Life With Archie, Kevin Keller, and back issues of Jughead's Time Police?
Fortunately, the publisher has stepped up to meet my demand with the upcoming release of Archie Double Double Digest, a special issue brings readers 320 pages of comics for $5.99. Check out a preview of this massive tome below!Here's the official solicitation:
For a company that only recently got around to doing variant covers, Archie sure has caught on quick to how to do them in a fun way. Case in point: Kevin Keller. Over the last nine months, Riverdale High's newest student has been featured in a series of "Retro Variants," with veteran Archie artist Dan Parent dropping Kevin into homages to stuff like Pureheart the Powerful, and even Superman's first appearance in Action Comics #1.
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. The only real flaw is that if you weren
It's an age old question...or, at least, a 70-year-old question: Betty or Veronica?
The two female points of the love triangle at the very center of publisher Archie Comics have always formed a sort of either/or dichotomy for those male readers envious of Archie Andrews' predicament, being seemingly forced to choose between two ideal girlfriends of opposite natures. When those male readers ask
