Haverhill’s ‘Archie’ meets ‘Glee’ in crossover
Archie competence have been innate in a sacred halls of Haverhill High in 1939, though a comic that bares his name and correspondence is anything though a blast from a past.
Recent editions have welcomed a initial happy impression to Riverdale, distinguished a happy marriage, and even featured a crossover with a rope KISS.
Now Archie can supplement a new nick to his cocktail enlightenment belt: publishers have announced a joyful red head, along with his squad of Jughead, Betty and Veronica will get to accommodate a likes of Finn Hudson, Kurt Hummel and Rachel Berry in an Archie comics “Glee” crossover.
“Glee” is a strike Fox TV uncover about a organisation of misfit high schoolers clinging to behaving with their school’s Glee Club – and Glenn O’Leary, owners of a Comic Book Palace in Haverhill couldn’t be happier about a pairing.
“Anything crossover is good for comics,” pronounced O’Leary, who saw a outrageous liquid of new clients for a Archie-KISS crossover. “‘Glee’ is a hugely watched TV uncover and fans competence wish a comic.”
Archie Co-Chief Executive Office Jon Goldwater denounced a designed partnership – dubbed “Archie Meets Glee” – only before a new start of Comic-Con in San Diego. The emanate should strike stands after this year or early 2013.
“Glee” author Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa will coop a comic, with illustrations by Dan Parent.
“It turns out he’s been a fan of Archie for years. His many new Halloween costume? He was dressed as Archie!” Goldwater said.
Aguirre-Sacasa pronounced a event was something he could not pass up, either.
“I’ve been wanting to write something for Archie Comics perpetually and my favorite Archie stories have always been those uncanny crossovers like ‘Archie meets a Punisher’ and ‘Archie meets KISS,”’ he said. “I thought, ‘Archie meets Glee’ would be a good crossover given they’re both set in high schools, they’re both optimistic, they both engage singing.”
For now, Goldwater said, 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.
“Archie is perplexing to make itself some-more relevant,” O’Leary said. “It seems to be during a forefront of pulling a envelope.”
