Archie Comics has announced an Oct. 4 launch for The Archies, an ongoing series written by Matthew Rosenberg and Alex Segura, with art by Joe Eisma.
Here's how the series is described:
After successfully playing their first real show together as a band, Archie, Jughead, Betty & Veronica, and Reggie leave Riverdale as they begin their first tour across the country -- and meet real-life bands along the way!
"We're taking The Archies out of Riverdale and sending them on tour across the country to experience everything a touring band goes through," Rosenberg said. "So whether you grew up with Archie or you've never read a comic, here's a great chance to hop in the van with these 5 old friends and experience something totally new."
In other Archie news, the publisher has announced an Oct. 25 launch for Jughead: The Hunger, an ongoing series written by Frank Tieri, with art by Pat Kennedy and Tim Kennedy.
Here's how the book is described:
"During the full moon, Riverdale falls under siege. After discovering his dark lineage in March's Jughead: The Hunger One-Shot by Frank Tieri and Michael Walsh, Jughead Jones struggles to put his past behind him with Betty Cooper: Werewolf Hunter and Archie Andrews hot on his trail!"
"We purposely left the door open with the one shot, we told you if you made Jughead: The Hunger a hit we'd make more -- and since you more than held up your end of the bargain-- here we are," Tieri said. "Fans can expect more of everything they loved about the one shot now as we expand our universe -- more werewolf Juggie, more bad ass Betty, more conflicted Archie and more twists and turns than you can shake a severed arm at."
Covers for #1 are by Francesco Francavilla, Robert Hack and Michael Walsh.
