The webcomic adventures of Archie and friends is getting a collected edition this spring from Archie Comics.
Filled with hysterical jokes, insightful commentary, and adorable artwork, the collection features Archie and the gang from Riverdale (and beyond!), as they take a bite out of pop culture. These relevant and sometimes irreverent tales send Archie and pals head-first into modern culture, allowing one of the most iconic entities in Americana to flawlessly assimilate (and comment!) on today’s most meme-worthy trends and social savvy topics. The webcomic collection features the first full year of stories from writer Ron Cacace and artist Vincent Lovallo as they originally appeared on Archie Comics’ social media platforms, along with bonus sketches and a behind-the-scenes look at the creative process.
“Bite Sized Archie started out as the answer to a question: “How can we create new, original and relevant content for our social media audience on a weekly basis?” said Ron Cacace, Archie Comics writer and director of publicity & social media in a press release from Archie Comics. “Our series is all about continuing the amazing legacy of Archie Comics, which is telling topical stories that reflect on pop culture trends featuring relatable characters and delivering them in an easy-to-digest format. By publishing as a weekly webcomic, we’ve been able to jump on topics faster than ever before while remaining uniquely ‘Archie.’ And thanks to Vincent’s adorably authentic art style, we’ve been embraced by everyone who has read our stories. It’s a dream come true for us to see our series make it to print and be delivered to an entirely new audience in comic shops and bookstores.”
Bite Sized Archie Volume 1 arrives on April 27, 2022.
