Archie, pals to find ‘Glee’ in crossover
Now, Archie, Betty, Veronica and proprietor child talent Dilton Doiley will compare wits — and maybe a outspoken or dual — with a likes of Finn Hudson, Kurt Hummel and Rachel Berry in a pages of Archie Comics, pronounced Jon Goldwater, a co-chief executive officer.
Goldwater denounced a designed partnership on Monday, forward of Wednesday’s start of Comic-Con in San Diego.
He pronounced a crossover between a Fox uncover and a comic book is set for late this year or in early 2013, and is being created by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, one of a radio show’s writers. It facilities mixed characters from a long-running comic book and a Fox uncover now in a third year. Dan Parent is illustrating a story.
“I’ve turn accessible with Roberto — he’s only a talent writer,” pronounced Goldwater, who met a playwright final year during New York Comic Con when he stopped by Archie Comic Publications Inc.’s booth. “He and we were sharpened a breeze.”
That revisit sparked a loyalty and, ultimately, a thought for a crossover.
“It turns out he’s been a fan of Archie for years. His many new Halloween costume? He was dressed as Archie!” Goldwater said.
For now, says Goldwater, a tract of a four-issue story arc in Archie Comics is a closely-held secret, though it does engage together dimensions, dancing and some critical singing, too.
It’s also a latest step for a publisher, that has stretched a cocktail informative offerings over only Jughead, Midge and Mr. Weatherbee.
In a past dual years, Archie Comics has brought in an openly-gay character, Kevin Keller; been visited by a rope Kiss; and seen Archie marry Valerie, a bassist for Josie and a Pussycats, and have a daughter with her.
“Those have reintroduced a lot of people behind to Archie,” Goldwater said. “And it’s non-stop a whole new universe of people entrance to Archie for a initial time, too.”
Goldwater pronounced that in a march of his review with Aguirre-Sacasa it was clear both Glee and Archie had some common belligerent notwithstanding entrance from decidedly opposite mediums, including a different array of characters, conditions and concerns.
“Glee is bold in their story lines and how they paint their characters, how they paint a high propagandize situation,” he said, observant that it’s identical in a universe of Archie, too.
