I mean, uh, what? First, an Archie TV series, titled Riverdale, has been put into production by Archie’s Chief Creative Officer and pilot writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa. He’s hyping it up big time, as you might expect. He recently say down and was interviewed by Comic Book Resources, and there was a lot of stuff going on. He sells the series by describing it as “Riverdale is Archie Meets ‘Twin Peaks. You know how we’re doing Archie Meets Predator? This is Archie Meets David Lynch.” He then goes on to say, “…if, god willing, this works out the way we all want it to work out, every Halloween we’ll be doing an Afterlife episode of Riverdale.” And this series hasn’t even been picked up yet! Aim for the stars, dude! Read more…

Archie vs. the Commies!

Iron Curtain Caper: Archie Comics

ArchieComics.com has published a long lost unpublished comic Iron Curtain Caper from the 50s which features the adventures of Archie’s cousin Andy Andrews who is an “ex Ivy league halfback, ex all-American, ex Captain in the United States Army who’s now a reporter for an American foreign news syndicate!” The first thing that I noticed looking at this unpublished comic book from the Cold War era is that the draftsmanship and inking work is amazing. What I also like about the book is that it shows you what a more action hero version of Archie would have looked like. At the end of the day I can see why this series wasn’t published — it was just too far away from the Archie comics brand which was more about romance and humor than action and adventure. But it’s nice to see what might have been. Read more…

Cartoony Stamps for 2010

Posted by Michael Pinto on Dec 30, 2009 in Comic Books

Bill Mauldin Stamp

The United States Postal Service has announced their stamps for 2010 and I’m pleased to see that they’re honoring Bill Mauldin, who is perhaps the one cartoonist above all that I associate with World War II. What’s cool about the stamp is that while it shows his famous characters Willie and Joe, the stamp really features Bill (which is a nice honor). Also featured this year is an Archie Comics stamp: Read more…
