We all knew that Fiona Staples was leaving Archie with issue #2, and Archie Comics has announced the new art team of Annie Wu and Veronica Fish!
You know Annie Wu from Hawkeye and Black Canary, and seeing her art on the cover for issue #4 makes me very excited. For issues five and six, Veronica Fish will add her art skills to the pages. When Archie Comics and The CW announced the Riverdale series, Fish’s work was used in the promotional art.
“Annie has the perfect handle on these characters and we’re lucky to have her come in for a special, one-issue story,” said Archie Comics President Mike Pellerito. “Annie’s a unique and versatile talent and really the perfect person to step in and showcase these characters in a new way, while still holding true to the foundation Fiona put in place.”
What does all this mean? It means the first six issues of the Mark Waid Archie run are filled with some of the most awesome art around!
Archie #2 is in stores today! TODAY! Archie #4 arrives in November.
