Cheryl Blossom’s Taking Over In The Digital Collection Of ‘Queen B’ [Preview]

Cheryl00

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.

Archie Launches Kickstarter For Chip Zdarsky’s ‘Jughead,’ Adam Hughes on ‘Betty & Veronica’ And Dan Parent And J. Bone’s ‘Life With Kevin’

Archie by Fiona Staples

I don't know about you, but I did not wake up this morning expecting to see the phrase, "Jughead relaunch from the writer of Sex Criminals." And yet, here we are.

Following up on the upcoming relaunch of Archie with Mark Waid and Fiona Staples, Archie Comics announced today that they plan to expand the rebooted Riverdale through a Kickstarter campaign. The goal is set at $350,000, with the money going to a trio of rebooted comics: Jughead from writer Chip Zdarsky and an unannounced artist, Life With Kevin by Dan Parent and J. Bone, and, maybe the most surprising one of all, a new Betty & Veronica #1 written and drawn by Adam Hughes.

The 1978 ‘Archie’ TV Special Exists, Is Even Weirder Than Expected [Video]

Archie01

I'm not exactly an Archie Comics expert, but I'm a big enough fan of Riverdale's favorite teenagers that I like to think I know about the more obscure bits of Archie media out there. I know about the Riverdale and Back Again movie where Lauren Holly plays a grown-up Betty Cooper and I've even seen the obscure Archie sitcom pilot from the '60s, but every now and then, I run across something I've never even heard of. Case in point: The 1978 Archie Situation Comedy Musical Variety Show special that aired on TV before being lost to the sands of time.

Fortunately, comic book media historian Derek Crabbe has unearthed a copy, and is here to tell you all about how we almost got David Caruso as Archie and explain a bit where Archie and Betty are very eager to lose their virginity. Check it out below!

The Halloween season is truly upon us, even in the normally sleepy town of Riverdale. In last month's Betty & Veronica #261, Archie's hometown came under siege from an army of vampire clones in what is easily the third or fourth craziest Archie story of all time, and now, it's time for the sequel.

That's right, everybody: This wee
