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.

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!"

Announcements / Site Upgrade
February 16, 2019, 12:03:10 am
Just a heads up to everyone. I'm going to be upgrading the site tomorrow morning/afternoon. The upgrade will bring a new layout and quite a few new features, including native likes and notifications (the current systems are add-ons), improved attachment handling and more. It will also allow the site layout to work with mobile devices without having to use Tapatalk (though I will keep support for that as long as it works with the new version of the forum software).

Note that the upgrade will also result in us using the default theme for a while, but I will work on getting the current one updated as quickly as possible.

The site will be inaccessible for a while during the upgrade, but I don't anticipate this being for more than half an hour.

General Comics / Stan Lee has died

Hate to bury this in a sub-board but I really don't know where else to put it since it's not technically related to Archie Comics... Stan Lee has died at the age of 95... Stan Lee Dead at 95

Feedback/Support / Features
November 10, 2018, 10:21:28 pm
I'm starting to plan out a site upgrade/overhaul in the coming weeks/months and wanted to get an idea of what features everyone currently uses. Most of the features we have here will be staying, but a couple of the add-ons I use aren't yet compatible with the new version of the forum software, so I'd like to have an idea of whether I should wait for those to be updated...

1. Shop. This lets you earn points for posting and redeem those points for various items. This one has proven to be popular in the past.

2. Enhanced profiles. This option adds some social options to the profile - the "About Me" section, public list of buddies, profile comments, profile pictures, etc. This also seems to be something that very few are using. This one appears to have been abandoned by the person who wrote it so if it's really important I can look into updating it myself.

Also note that the theme will change with the upgrade, but it shouldn't be too hard to change the colors on it to get something similar to what we have now.

Just a quick note for everyone. With the latest update to the forum software, I have switched the site over to use https (secure) URLs instead of plain http. You shouldn't notice much difference (though you'll now see a green lock and "Secure" next to the URL in Google Chrome and similar things in other browsers), but this will enhance security, especially where usernames and passwords are concerned. If you have any questions or run into any problems, let me know.

Announcements / FYI: Server Move
November 14, 2016, 03:45:23 pm
Just a quick heads up to everyone. I will be moving the site over to a new server late Wednesday into Thursday (probably around 12:30am EST Thursday morning). I am staying with the same host - the move is simply to take advantage of a newer version of the operating system (due to the way things work, upgrading directly to the new version can't be done easily short of rebuilding the entire VPS, which would result in longer downtime). The downtime should be less than 24 hours, though it will depend on how long it takes your ISP to detect the DNS changes. I will post here and put the site in maintenance mode before I start the move and post here again when things are finished.
