To commemorate its 80th anniversary as home to some of pop culture’s most iconic characters, Archie Comics is publishing a series of special digital-exclusive one-shot comics throughout April and May. Archie Andrews and the Riverdale gang debuted in Pep Comics #22 way back in 1941 and they quickly became some of pop culture’s most enduring and recognizable icons. The next wave of titles has just been announced as the first wave releases today on digital comics platforms comiXology, the Archie App, Hoopla, and more.
Starring fan-favorite characters and deep cuts from the archives, the new slate is led by Sabrina the Teenage Witch, who made her comics debut in 1962 and now tops airwaves in the hit Netflix streaming series, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. The new assortment also includes spotlight issues on legendary Archie Comics artists Dan DeCarlo, Harry Lucey, and Dan Parent.
Each release features classic, all-ages content highlighting the best Archie Comics has to offer in family entertainment. Ranging from $0.99 to $1.99, these digital exclusives are both affordable and accessible for longtime readers and new fans.
