Artist Dan Parent and writer-inker Ty Templeton are working together on the just-announced Your Pal Archie, which is an “all-ages” book that will modernize the looks of the characters by taking inspiration from Riverdale. If they want to keep the book all-ages, the fashion will have to be all they take from the show.
In Riverdale, the lovely insanity that is the TV version of Archie, Betty Cooper (Lili Reinhart) and Jughead Jones (Cole Sprouse) are together. And, in this day and age, a relationship means a portmanteau couple name. Since no one can agree on just one for these two, Archie Comics just went ahead and filed a trademark…
Jughead Jones is already well known for his love of eating, although his favorite food is normally hamburgers. A sideways step into the world of Afterlife with Archie-style horror means it’s not that hard to imagine the Riverdale teen becoming a werewolf hungry for something more sinister, is it?
On the CW’s Riverdale, Archie Andrews is, unlike his traditional comic book counterpart, buff as hell—and topless on occasion, because duh, he’s the male lead of a show on the CW. They’re all like that. What’s amazing is, the Riverdale comic actually spent the time to explain how Archie transformed from skinny comics…
Marvel is one of the biggest comics publishers in the world. So why would it need Archie Comics to release new collections of its own books? The reason behind a new deal announced today is not as bizarre as it might seem.
Last month, Archie Comics CCO and Riverdale producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa hinted at the comics publisher’s plans to expand its television ventures beyond Riverdale and into a whole Archie empire. Now, those plans just got a bit more official, with the announcement of a new deal between the publisher and Warner Bros.
Riverdale’s teen noir take on Archie Comics was already wonderfully weird enough, but it was almost much, much weirder.
The CW is coming out with all sorts of announcements at this year’s TCA event, but nothing compares to the rising storm that is the Archie Comics Universe. This includes talks for a dark reboot of Sabrina the Teenage Witch, some animated movies...and yes, a musical by Will Ferrell.
The Riverdale trailer declares it to be a town where “everything is perfect and nothing is what it seems.” I’d say that this trailer is exactly what it seems: perfect. It can’t be a drama if there isn’t a big old slap, can it?
It has been a huge year for comics—so huge, we’re trying something a little different for io9's year in review. While next week we’ll be bringing you our favorite series of 2016, today is all about the individual moments: the panels and scenes that became our favorite moments to read in comics all year.
They’re only one-shots for now, but who’s to say we couldn’t get a Sabrina book or even more Archie Horror in the future? The world of the “New Riverdale” reboot in Archie Comics is getting a little bigger next year with four new standalone comics.
We’ve finally got our first good glimpse at the CW’s take on the world of Archie Comics, and honestly, I should even have to tell you that this is from the CW. It’s got teen drama than you can shake a Riverdale High cheerleader’s pom-pom at—which might as well be a giant neon sign screaming “HEY WE’RE ON THE CW.” It…
Actress Shannon Purser is having a killer summer. She played fan-favorite character Barb on Stranger Things, and now she’s just been cast as an updated (but probably still adorably nerdy) version of Ethel Muggs on the CW’s upcoming Archie show, Riverdale.
We love Afterlife with Archie’s horror-laden take on Riverdale, so we can’t wait to see what Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, Francesco Francavilla, and Jack Morelli when they get their hands on an Archie Comics stalwart like Josie and the Pussycats. As this new preview shows, they’re doing some very sinister things.
The CW’s got a new comics-based show, but there’s nary a masked vigilante to be found. Instead, Riverdale feels like a series from the teen-focused CW of old. Here are our spoiler-free first impressions of the very strange, very goofy, and very fun pilot.
Archie Comics’ Riverdale reboot continues to surprise: the company has just announced that the rocking adventures of Josie and the Pussycats are getting an ongoing series set in the same new continuity as the excellent Archie and Jughead comics.
Last year, Archie Comics rebooted their main character and introduced a version of Archie and Riverdale High built around modern-day sensibilities. So far, we’ve seen updated takes on Betty, Veronica, and Reggie; this September, the magic comes back when teenage sorceress Sabrina guest-stars in the ongoing Jughead…
Tomorrow, May 7, is the happiest day of the year for comics fans: Free Comic Book Day, which is both a celebration of the hobby and a chance to read tons of new comics given away without paying a dime! While some are reprints, most contain awesome new material—and here’s our guide to the very best of this year’s…
It’s been a remarkable year for comics. Huge publishers like DC and Marvel have rejuvenated their line-ups with tons of amazing books; beyond the big two, there’s been some of the most compelling, challenging material in the industry we’ve seen in years. It was hard to narrow it down, but here’s 20 of 2015’s best.
