What’s this now??? It’s can’t be! More turmoil!
NO! Just the announcement that Dark Horse and Archie are teaming up to publish the Archie Archives.
The Archie Archives will consist of hardcover volumes, in Dark Horse’s archive format, featuring Archie Comics mainstay characters of “Archie”, “Betty”, “Jughead”, “Veronica” and the other characters in the Riverdale Universe. Each individual title will begin with the earliest published issue and move forward in chronological order. Each volume will be approximately 200-250 pages, feature embossed printing, a dust-jacket and carry both Archie Comics and Dark Horse names and logos. The initial plan is to release three volumes of each individual title per calendar year, with each volume retailing for $49.95. According to Dark Horse publisher Mike Richardson, the series will run indefinitely.
Archie Comics co-CEO Jon Goldwater stated, “We have seen the quality and care Dark Horse has put in to restoring and collecting material for their archival series, and we are looking forward to making our early MLJ library of classic material available to a new generation of kids and collectors.”
Whew, we were worried there for a moment.
