Hey! Ho! Let's Go To Riverdale In 'Archie Meets Ramones' #1
All things considered, Archie Andrews has met an awful lot of famous people. Michael Strahan, Barack Obama, KISS, the Sharknado, they've all made a stop in Riverdale at one time or another. But with Archie Meets Ramones, there's a bit of a problem that's kind of hard to get past. I mean, I don't want to get too dark when I'm talking about a book that's ostensibly for kids --- albeit that small but amazing segment of kids that are into both Archie Comics and '70s punk rock --- but if you want the gang to hang out with the band's original lineup here in 2016, it's going to be a little difficult. Unless, of course, you have a magic record from Sabrina the Teenage Witch's surprisingly vast vinyl archives. If that's that's the case, then it's as easy as dropping the needle.

Hope Nicholson Shares 'The Secret Loves of Geek Girls'
Following two successful Kickstarters collecting the comics work of classic Canadian cartoonists, this year sees writer and editor Hope Nicholson return to crowdfunding for a completely new project, The Secret Loves of Geek Girls. Gathering a varied collection of thematically-linked pieces, including comics, illustrated stories, and prose, the anthology --- now running on Kickstarter --- will feature work from creators including Mariko Tamaki, Sam Maggs, Jen Vaughn, Irene Koh and, yes, Margaret Atwood. The Secret Loves of Geek Girls will focus on just that --- real and imagined stories on the topics of dating, love, romance and (whisper it!) sex. Nothing more, nothing less; love is the best. This is a huge undertaking, but one that Nicholson is certainly qualified to bring together. To find out more about the project, ComicsAlliance spoke to her about what we can expect from the collection, how Margaret Atwood got involved, and the story that Hope herself will write for the anthology.
