"The potential here is boundless and limited only by imagination -- when I began, I sat down intending to start with a brief document explaining how I saw all the characters in Riverdale, but four hours and 3,000 words later, I realized I'd gotten only to Archie, Betty and Jughead, and I could have kept writing through the night. It's just a matter of drilling down on well-constructed characters -- and the more I write about them, the more I find to write." -- Mark Waid

From Mark Waid and Fiona Staples (Variant cover beneath is by Paolo Rivera)


Edit - It has been pointed out that the second part of the scans I had posted were already posted here, so they have been removed and replaced with a sampling of the variant covers for issues #1 and #2 instead.

CBR: One response I've seen floated out there to this news is a bit of skepticism in Archie looking for a more modern, youthful take, and hiring a veteran comics writer to do so. How do you respond to observers who may question your ability to earnestly write a teenage cast?

Mark Waid: That's a fair question. I asked it myself. I'm not taking that part at all lightly. And my girlfriend's 14-year-old daughter is insanely helpful in keeping me honest. But while I'm in no way comparing my skills to the talents of these giants, I would offer that J.K. Rowling had already hit 30 when she wrote her first Harry Potter novel. Madeleine L'Engle was 42 when she wrote "A Wrinkle In Time." I'm younger than C.S. Lewis was when he was writing his Chronicles of Narnia, but not younger than S.E. Hinton when she penned "The Outsiders." And with all the respect in the world for a staggeringly gifted author, I'll never be as old as Bob Haney was.

'We've no intention of going "dark" or serving an adults-only audience. That's cheap, that's easy, and anyone can do it. Literally, any chimpanzee with a keyboard can write, "Issue One, Page One, Panel One: Establishing shot, the fetid boys' room of Riverdale High. Jughead pukes into a toilet, a heroin needle still dangling from his vein." Not interested.' -- Mark Waid

Now the actual issue doesn't come out until next wednesday, but the preview was released and if it's going where I think that it is, then it might possibly by the greatest thing ever.

Sabrina the Teenage Witch is probably my favourite Archie Comics character, in so far as a "favoutite" character in Archie Comics is capable of existing.

Although I was more familiar with the tv version, I am amused by how awesome the comicbook one is.

So after the debut of a gay character, two interracial marriages and a character getting breast cancer, what does the future have in store for the gentle folk of Riverdale?

A bit late for "Beyond the Big Two" week, but I know you folks like Archie-related posts...

Archie #634, and the finale of the "Archie Marries Valerie" timeline!

To recap: Valerie of Josie and the Pussycats has become interested in Archie Andrews. While considering if this is a wise move, she wanders into the Memory Lane area of the Yellow Woods and starts having visions of a possible future.

Valerie and Archie get married. They form the duo of "Him and Her." Veronica becomes a Pussycat. The Archies reform as "Sugar Sugar" with Trev (Valerie's brother and Betty's new squeeze), Betty, Reggie and Jughead. Archie and Valerie have a baby girl named Star, who turns out to be a musical prodigy.
