You did remember New York Comic Con was next week, right?  Archie’s announced their convention schedule and merchandise, so let’s a have a peek.  As the second season of Riversdale is about to debut, they’re going to be having a $10 variant cover of The Archies #1 (on the left) and some posters for their new launches.  It sounds like the staff are just itching to let a few details slip about the upcoming Sabrina TV show, too.

Archie Comics, the acclaimed and bestselling comic book publisher home to iconic characters known across the world, unveiled plans for New York City’s premiere pop-culture event, New York Comic Con 2017.

Archie Comics continues to celebrate a new era of creative life with the incoming highly anticipated second season of The CW’s live-action drama series, ‘RIVERDALE,’ from executive producers Greg Berlanti, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, Sarah Schechter, and Jon Goldwater, the news of an in-development CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA horror/drama show from the ‘RIVERDALE’ team, and a new wave of comic book titles with exciting twists on Archie characters by new and rising stars in the comic industry.

THE ARCHIES will take center stage at NYCC this year as Archie, Betty, Veronica, Jughead and Reggie plan for their very first tour together in a new ongoing comic book series beginning with THE ARCHIES #1. Hitting comic shops and digital retailers on the eve of the show, Wednesday, October 4th, and featuring the work of the all-star creative team of co-writers Alex Segura (ARCHIE MEETS RAMONES), Matthew Rosenberg (4 Kids Walk into a Bank) and artist Joe Eisma (ARCHIE).

THE ARCHIES is the opening act for what will surely be an amazing weekend of signings, exclusives and announcements at New York Comic Con 2017 —including a must-see Archie Comics: Riverdale Revealed panel on Saturday, an exclusive-to-the-show variant cover edition of THE ARCHIES #1 by Joe Eisma, and promotional posters for four new series launching in the months-to-come including JUGHEAD: THE HUNGER, B&V VIXENS, MIGHTY CRUSADERS, and COSMO.

Posters will be distributed throughout the weekend at the Archie Comics Booth
