The Archie comics reboot has to be one of the biggest surprises in the comics industry of the last few years. Ever since the publisher dropped the comics code authority and began diversifying its approach to Archie and his friends, Archie has become one of the best comics around—and now it’s going a step further by…
The CW has announced that they’ve greenlit six new pilots for potential shows, including an untitled Mars project and an Archie Comics adaptation, Riverdale.
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.
Free Comic Book Day is a most wonderful time for comic fans—I mean, after all, what can be more wonderful than free comics? Diamond has revealed some of the premier books that are coming for the special day next year, so you can start salivating right now instead of waiting for May.
Archie Andrews and Betty Cooper aren’t going out anymore. And Veronica Lodge isn’t really feeling comics’ most famous ginger teen like that. But there they are, getting all entwined in each others’ lives. There’s no romance at all yet, and that’s pretty great.
Not content with a new TV series on the CW, a newly redesigned and shockingly excellent comic relaunch, fighting zombies, Predators and Sharknados, and all the other ways he and his Riverdale pals are conquering the entertainment world, Archie will also get a Broadway musical with help from Anchorman’s Adam McKay.
In their continuing bid to become a network made up entirely of live-action adaptations of comic books—which is 100% fine by me—The CW has taken Riverdale, based on the eternal Archie comics, off of Fox’s hands. Given its teen/high school/romance core, it’s probably a much better fit anyways.

This week, there’s a comic where a Predator from the movies of the same name stalks Archie, Betty, Veronica and Jughead. A newly dead body drips blood all over America’s favorite lily-white teenagers as the alien hunter observes them from a tree branch above.

A University of Calgary professor has written "the first scholarly study of the Archie comic," titled Twelve-Cent Archie. Though some of his colleagues were skeptical, his motivation, Bart Beaty explains, was "to really challenge the kind of snobbery that's inherent in the way that comics aren't studied."
When we listed Archie Vs. Predator as one of 2015's most anticipated comics, that was before we say these two amazing comic covers. Now? Now we're going to have to hunt them down like the Predator hunted Dutch and his fellow soldiers, meaning these comics will have to bury themselves in mud to hide from our sight.
But this time it's not DC. Instead, comic book TV show wonder-producer Greg Berlanti is taking the long-running Archie comic to the Fox network, where it will be "a bold, subversive take on Archie, Betty, Veronica and their friends, exploring the surreality of small-town life" titled Riverdale.

This weekend marks the first ever MondoCon, and to celebrate we are giving you all an exclusive look at one of the many spectacular works of art that will be on display and on sale in Austin. Behold Francesco Francavilla's Afterlife with Archie work.
If you've somehow dismissed Afterlife with Archie as "America's Favorite Teenagers" finally getting around to "America's Favorite Apocalyptic-Inducing Monsters, " you're wrong. It's more Walking Dead than Scooby Doo, but without TWD's gruesome need to constantly outdo its own violence.
Crossovers are an everyday occurrence in the comics industry, where Spider-Man hangs with Wolverine, Batman stops by Teen Titans HQ, and Aliens battle Predators. But not all crossovers make as much sense as these do. Here are a dozen of them that aren't necessarily bad, but they're all definitely weird.
The characters of Titan's new comic Death Sentence are not heroes. They’re normal people who had unprotected sex, received superpowers, and will die in six months — and that’s the fantastic premise of Death Sentence #1, which you need to check out. Plus zombies attack Riverdale, The Walking Dead goes to war and more…
