I know we've all been waiting very patiently, but the day is finally upon us. Comics based on James Cameron's Avatar are finally coming next year on Free Comic Book Day! The comic book adaptation of the smash-hit blockbuster that everyone loves and remembers is just one of twelve Gold Titles as part of FCBD's 2017 celebration, which also includes Rick & Morty, Doctor Who and X-O Manowar.
Announced today, Free Comic Book Day 2017 will be celebrated across the world on May 6th, and as usual the big name publishers, including Image, IDW, Boom, Oni and Titan, all have offerings as part of next year's crop of Gold Sponsor titles.
There's a street in Riverdale's magical Yellow Wood called Storybook Lane, and as you might expect from the all-consuming weirdness of the Archie universe, it has the same nebulous relationship to fables and fairytales that Memory Lane does with time. Just something to keep in mind when you're reading the new Betty and Veronica: Fairy Tales collection --- it's out this week, and you can check out a preview below!
Betty and Veronica are still at each other's throats in Betty & Veronica #2 by Adam Hughes, and things continue to escalate. In fact, the issue opens with the word "WAR" in all caps as a truck is engulfed in flames against the night sky, while an unidentified girl kneels in the street next to a skull wearing Jughead's hat. Is this really where things are headed Check out this preview to find out more...
When the Betty & Veronica solicits came out weeks ago, I had a lot of concerns. Like, a lot of concerns. Mostly that Adam Hughes, a man known for drawing pin-ups, was going to be both drawing and writing a series about the best frenemies of the Archie Universe in their biggest fight. It certainly didn’t help that this was going to be yet another book in the new Archie line-up written by a man. But hey, I love Jughead, written by Chip Zdarsky (especially how it confirmed Jughead as ace), and Archie, written by Mark Waid, has been going strong. I tried to keep an open mind, waiting to pass judgement until it came out this month.
I’ve read the issue. And it has some major problems. So let’s talk about it.
Everyone loves comic book trivia, but with over 75 years of superhero comics behind us right now, there’s always some new obscure fact to learn. That’s why ComicsAlliance is going deep into the minutiae of your favorite names in comics in our continuing video series. You think you know comics? Well, here’s a few things you might not know!
This week we're taking a look at Riverdale's best friends and bitterest rivals, Betty and Veronica! For decades, the dynamic that has fueled the engine of Archie Comics has been the relationship between these two young ladies, as they go to great lengths to one-up each other and catch the attention of America's typical teenager, Archie Andrews. In this video, we explore the history of Betty Cooper and Veronica Lodge, from the real life humans who inspired them to their various family members to how at various times each of them has been a magically foretold slayer of vampires.
Born on this day in 1967, Adam Hughes is one of the most sought after cover artists in the world, with a unique style filled with his signature brand of charm and warmth. Although often cited as a pin-up artist, Hughes’ work surpasses many of his contemporaries by offering more than just beautiful people posed alluringly.
In its latest step towards cultural domination, Archie Comics has teamed up with Chicago-based designer clothing website Threadless for a fashion line featuring and inspired by "America's New Teen-Age Boyfriend" and his pals.
It might seem hard to believe, but there was once a time when Archie Comics was the only publisher that didn't do variant covers. If memory serves --- and I might be wrong about this --- it took until 2010 for them to do their first one ever on Jughead #200. Now, though, with the high profile relaunches that we've seen over the past year, it looks like they're making up for lost time.
When Betty & Veronica #1 hits shelves on July 20, it's coming with twenty-five different covers, including covers from Colleen Coover, Bilquis Evely, Chip Zdarsky, Veronica Fish and many more. Check out the entire roster!
Almost a year ago, Archie Comics launched a Kickstarter for three upcoming books, and then quickly abandoned that plan. The first of those books, Jughead, came out last year to great acclaim. Today, Archie has officially announced the coming release of the other two titles, Life with Kevin and Betty and Veronica.
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.
