"Man, talk about the Archie equivalent of a Luthor/Brainiac team-up. Archie will absolutely not know what's hit him. And in the back half of our first year, the hits just keep coming." -- Mark Waid

"There is a valid school of thought that says that good villains must have realistic, complex motivations and sympathetic (or at least comprehensible) goals. As adversaries, they must be textured. By and large, I subscribe to this theory.

"On the other hand, sometimes people are just jerks."
-- Mark Waid

"It's being done not out of jaded cynicism or to inflate sales but truly, honestly, out of a love for pop-culture icons that no one wants to see go the way of, say, Davy Crockett or Woody Woodpecker. (Kids, ask your parents.)" -- Mark Waid

"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.

A brief History of Jughead (and how he got his name) )

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.
