At this point it looks like they're trying just about everything to see what sticks. I wish they'd just go back to their roots and publish good Archie comics instead of tying up so many resources in generating publicity for comics that many of us don't want (I have no interest in the horror comics and have hardly watched any of Riverdale because it's so much different than the classic Archie I grew up reading)

It'll be interesting to see what they do with it. I'm not too familiar with the source material but it's good to see them giving it a spotlight again. Hopefully it'll renew interest in the comics.

The future queen of pin-ups has arrived! Lucy Hale (Pretty Little Liars) has been cast as aspiring fashion designer Katy Keene in the upcoming Riverdale spin-off pilot in development at The CW!

"Katy Keene" follows the lives of four young people following their dreams in New York City and features Ashleigh Murray reprising her "Riverdale" role of Josie McCoy, along with Jonny Beauchamp (Penny Dreadful) as Ginger Lopez, Julia Chan (Saving Hope) as Pepper Smith, and Camille Hyde (American Vandal) and Lucien Laviscount (Snatch) as Alexandra and Alexander Cabot.

Bold, big-hearted and independent, Katy Keene is a twenty-something New Yorker who aspires to be a fashion designer. When she's not working as a personal shopper at a luxury department store, she's navigating friendship and dating in the big city.

Katy's comic origins date back to 1945 when she was introduced in the pages of Wilbur Comics #5 by Bill Woggon. The model, actress and singer was known for her impeccable taste in fashion. Katy's comic book series were well-liked for including fan-submitted fashion designs and fun reader activities.

Riverdale and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Michael Grassi will script the pilot episode of the new musical dramedy, with Maggie Kiley as Director/Executive Producer.

"Katy Keene" will be produced by Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. TV and Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and Archie Comics CEO/Publisher Jon Goldwater serving as executive producers.

Quote from: DeCarlo Rules on March 04, 2019, 10:01:29 amHere's one you might have overlooked, from the Dynamite Entertainment solicitations:
I saw something about that on Facebook but completely forgot about it. Thanks!

As far as the continuity stuff goes, we should all know by now that Archie doesn't seem to know what that is at times :P

Quote from: DeCarlo Rules on February 21, 2019, 12:21:40 pmHelp! POLICE! I've been robbed!! Somebody cleaned out my bank account! I used to be a multimillionaire, but now I'm Only A Poor Old Man. I lost all my karma, too. I'm flat busted. O, woe is me.
Easiest way to get all those credits back is to post and move as many credits as you can to the bank (click "Shop" in the menu above then click "Bank" in the menu above the shoutbox).

Karma doesn't exist anymore. It was completely removed from this version of the forum software.

An Archie Comics cult classic centuries in the making is returning to comic shops in June with the revival of JUGHEAD'S TIME POLICE! The original '90s mini-series, a madcap sci-fi comedy in which Riverdale's champion layabout is tasked with saving all of human history, has long been one of Archie fandom's favorite storylines. In the revamped take, Jughead travels through time to right a food-related wrong that quickly leads to a battle for the timestream itself! Written by Sina Grace (Adventure Time, Iceman) with art by Eisner Award-winning artist Derek Charm (JUGHEAD, The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl), colorist Matt Herms, and letterer Jack Morelli, the wild new mini-series will run for five issues starting June 12, and could continue beyond that if fan response demands it.



"JUGHEAD'S TIME POLICE is a beloved concept that was screaming to be modernized, so once we read Sina's pitch, we knew we were in business," said Archie Comics Co-President Alex Segura. "He honors what came before but gives the idea a much-needed jolt. I can't think of a better artist to bring it to life than Derek, who had a stellar run on the main JUGHEAD title -- which kind of feels like a warmup for this!"
