Tom King’s Archie one-shot will finally ‘solve’ the dilemma of Betty or Veronica

Archie’s been placing his robust selections off for too lengthy. It’s finally time for Riverdale’s favourite son to resolve between Betty and Veronica, and fortunately he’ll have a particular visitor author to assist be certain issues go easily. Legendary comedian scribe Tom King, together with artist Dan Dad or mum, will step in for a full-length one-shot known as Archie: The Choice, wherein Archie finally makes his alternative.

As you would possibly count on for such a landmark second in Riverdale’s historical past, The Choice will characteristic many of Archie Comics’ fan-favorite characters, from Josie and the Pussycats to Sabrina the Teenage Witch, all reacting to the determination and sharing their ideas.

King’s popularity as a author of the greatest, thinkiest superhero comics of the final decade tends to overshadow the constant humor in his books. The author of The Imaginative and prescient, Omega Males, Mister Miracle, Batman, and Supergirl: Girl of Tomorrow appears excited to completely embrace Archie-style comedy.

“As a massive Archie fan, this is just a pure joy project for me,” King informed Polygon through electronic mail. “I wanted to do something zany and cool and screwball and hysterical and gorgeous and harebrained and maybe a little tiny itty-bitty bit profound as a tribute to my Golden and Silver Age Archie heroes — people like Dan DeCarlo, Harry Lucey, Bob Bolling, Bob Montana, and Samm Schwartz. And who better to do that with than the modern Archie maestro, Dan Parent, who inherited and brilliantly carried on the legacy of those giants. [The Decision] is an epic, riotous story featuring scores of Archie characters where Dan and I wrestle with the greatest dilemma in the near 85-year history of comics: Betty or Veronica!? I’m not sure we can solve it, but, like all of Riverdale, we’re going to have a ton of fun trying.”
