Archie Comics Celebrates Their Oak Anniversary With ‘Everything’s Archie’ #1 One-Shot

by Brendan M. Allen

Mixing new trends and pop culture fads while retaining a timeless aesthetic and storytelling style has been a longtime hallmark of Archie Comics. That continues this June in an all-new one-shot comic celebrating Archie’s 80th Anniversary. Everything’s Archie #1. Writer Fred Van Lente and artist Dan Parent present an all-new story told in the traditional Archie Comics art-style.

Van Lente says

You can always tell a great franchise because it quickly and easily updates to any era, and bringing Archie, Betty, Veronica, Reggie and Jughead into our world of social media insanity and real life anxiety was…pretty effortless. Turns out the Riverdale gang is your perfect guide to modern living, even if half the time they can’t figure it out for themselves!

Van Lente and Parent will be joined by longtime Archie Comics collaborators inker Bob Smith, colorist Glenn Whitmore, and letterer Jack Morelli on the first of this series of classic-styled one-shots comics. Check out the variant covers and preview pages below and look for Everything’s Archie #1 in comics shops June 9, 2021.
