Press Release

Archie Comics—publisher of the must-have “Riverdale Shore” and “Battle of the BFFs”—is giving the world more outstanding shout-outs to today’s teens, and this time it’s something the world can sink its teeth into: “Twilite”! This August in ARCHIE & FRIENDS #146, the latest in a line of great comic book media parodies, Archie Comics is about to enter the thrilling world of vampires, werewolves and the mortal teens who love them!

It’s love at first bite when two new mysterious students arrive in Riverdale. Betty and Veronica are fascinated by the smoldering-hot Ivan, but Jared is warning everyone who will listen that Ivan is really a bloodsucker!  Reggie jumps at the chance to help Jared expose Ivan as a vampire, but love… or maybe Ivan… is clouding Betty and Veronica’s vision! Can Archie and the others save the girls from the mysterious Ivan? Is there a greater danger lurking in the darkness?

America’s favorite comic book teens, Archie, Betty, Veronica and the rest of the gang enter the world of fantasy, where supernatural beings must choose between good, evil, and most of all, love!  “Twilite: Part One,” the first of a two-issue crusade for truth, love and freedom, begins with ARCHIE & FRIENDS #146 and ends with a larger-than-life conclusion in the following issue,  ARCHIE & FRIENDS #147!

“Vampires and the friends and foes of their world surround us every day,” remarks Archie Comics Co-CEO, Jon Goldwater. “It has been a spectacular treat to bring them to the world of Archie, Betty and Veronica in ‘Twilite.’ I can assure you, Riverdale has never seen a romance quite like this!”

    I’m offended at Archie’s 2-dimensional portrayal of the “stereotypical vampire”. ;)
