This week, Archie Comics releases the first issue of "Life With Archie: The Married Life," a new magazine-sized series that follows up on last year's popular story arcs depicting a pair of alternate futures in which Riverdale's favorite son got married to Betty in one and Veronica in the other.
As much as I love th
When I was talking about the upcoming "Thor" game last week, I got around the lack of screenshots by whipping up my idealized 8-bit game for the God of Thunder. And that got me thinking: What if they had converted my other favorite comics into 8-bit NES games -- or, in the case of Batman and the X-Men, what if the games they were in were actually good? So today, I'm playing with power as I imagine what a few great comics might look like if they had their roots in the 8-Bit Games of the NES era!

For many, however, the scariest story is yet to come. This July Archie and the gang will spoof none other t
When The Hero Initiative calls for big-name artists to draw covers for auctions, they tend to step up, and unlike the guy who sold "Archie" #1 to protest the Veronica marriage, 50 different artists from George Pérez and John Romita Sr. to Todd McFarlane and Cliff Chiang have chosen to celebrate the event and help raise money for creators in need. Like the "Ultima
Archie Comics announced today that the timeless city of Riverdale is poised to welcome its first openly gay resident this September in "Veronica" #202 with the introduction of Kevin Keller, the latest addition to Archie's increasingly diverse gang of friends.
"The introduction of Kevin is just about keeping the world of Archie Comics current and inclusive. Archie's hometown of Riverdale has a

"Archie" #608 is going to be hitting shelves on the 21st, and while I've already discussed the importance of the issue and my excitement over a story where Archie romances Josie and the Pussycats' Valerie Brown, it's nice to see that the folks at Archie are making a big deal of it too. This week, they put up a fun promotion on the Archie Comics Blog, mocking up magazine covers reflec
