Two new writers join Archie Comics
« on: March 29, 2008, 04:53:59 AM »
Two new writers join Archie Comics, and bring with them two new students to Riverdale High.

Jesús Gil Holguín, is one of the best known comic book professionals in Mexico, where he has been translating American comics into Spanish, and editing the Mexican editions of American comics for the past 25 years. He started at Editorial Novaro, the most important comic book publishing company in Latin America. He was a regular collaborator in a weekly radio show about comics, and has given a series of conferences about comics throughout Mexico. In 2005, Jesús started publishing Spanish Language editions of Archie Comics in Mexico. Jesús is writing his first script for Archie Comics. The story will feature the first Mexican addition to Riverdale High when Toño Diaz is introduced.


Toño was born in Mexico, and assists his parents, Adrián and Rosa in their party planning business. Rosa handles Public Relations and the administrative part of the business, while Adrián is responsible for the creative and labor portions of the family business. Toño enjoys helping them with gardening and decoration, but the part he likes the most is cooking. He wants to become a great chef when he grows up. The Diaz family has been hired by Mr. Lodge to plan events for the city of Riverdale. As a result, the family has relocated to Riverdale.
 
Join Toño and his entire family for their first Riverdale adventure in Pals ‘n’ Gals #123 on sale in July, 2008
 
Toño’s first appearance will be released simultaneously in the United States and in Mexico.

 
Misako Takashima developed a love for comics and manga at an early age, and drew her first comic at the age of 13. She moved to New York in 2001, and worked as a puppeteer, face painter, animal balloon maker and art teacher, while still developing her own work. She's been featured in many magazines and newspapers, including Elle Girl and the New York Times, and the BBC recently featured her in a documentary about comic book creators. Misako currently lives in Brooklyn.

 
Kumi Tamura is a shy, cute and goofy Japanese girl. She doesn't think she's goofy or funny. However, when Archie, Betty and the others meet her, they think she is very funny. She wants to be taller, so every morning she drinks a lot of milk, believing this will help her grow. She likes reading Japanese girls’ comics and believes that someday she will meet a gorgeous boy in America. She arrives in Riverdale with her younger sister, Ami Tamura. Compared to Kumi, Ami is outgoing, fun and a positive girl. Ami and Kumi often have fights and usually Ami wins. Ami goes crazy for cute boys, and she is excited to meet a lot of tall American boys! When she finds something/somebody who she really likes, she usually doesn't give up until she gets it, or them! Oh boy...
 
Kumi’s Mom is very kind and sweet… but she's obsessed with keeping their home clean. Therefore, when the kids have fights or make a mess, she gets crazy and looses her mind!! Kumi’s Dad is an engineer. Even though he's busy, he tries to make time for his girls as much as he can. When Mom gets crazy, he's really good at calming her down.
 
Kumi and her family will be moving to Riverdale shortly.

Interesting back stories. Jughead will now have to choose between Tono and Betty as to whose home-made food he should eat. Kumi's parents also sound similar to my own, but I guess it's an East Asian (Chinese/Japanese/Korean) thing.

Looks very interesting.

Just out of curiosity, what sort of background does one need to become a writer at Archie comics?  As someone who wants to make writing a career goal, I'd like to know what ACP is looking for. :)

I'm enjoying the diversity in Riverdale and I hope the writers bring along a fresh slate of stories with them.

And as always, I hope these new characters stick.

A character named Kumi? Is this a coincidence, or has Archie Comics found out about my favorite singer?

Betty Cooper + Cheryl Blossom. It's inevitable.

I created the Wiki article and asked if I could use a cropped pic from an album. I said, because she's (presumably) still alive, it would be possible to get a free use pic of her, so I couldn't use an album pic.

Still, you can see her here:

What about another Asian girl named Tomoko, BTW?

It's very nice to see the racial diversity growing in Riverdale, though it's of course still a cartoon town where ANYTHING can happen (remember Samm Schwartz and Harry Lucey, BTW!) ;D

Last time I checked, didn't Tomoko gain the media's attention by writing a story about how an apartment fire brought sadness to a long-term resident of said apartment?

Makes me wonder if there's enough room in Riverdale for an Asian-Australian teacher who's just finished his military service, in his early 20's (well, 20 upon finishing), into hard rock music and is a musician...

What? I can wish, right?
