Archie Meets Glee
This should be interesting I am neither a Archie Comics fan or a “GLEE” fan but this new talk of a cross over with these two does sound interesting. I do have a lot of respect for the Archie Comics series it has been a long-standing comic from before I was born so it must be doing something right. As far as “GLEE” it has been around for quite some time too and has a huge fan base. I think the outcome should be amazing. The cross over is set for later this year. More information about the collaboration will be unveiled at the San Diego Comic Con. Check out more comments below. Oh and I really like the campaign art don’t you?
“I’ve become friendly with Roberto — he’s just a genius writer,” said Goldwater, who met the playwright last year at New York Comic Con when he stopped by Archie Comic Publications Inc.’s booth. “He and I were shooting the breeze.”
“It turns out he’s been a fan of Archie for years. His most recent Halloween costume? He was dressed as Archie!” Goldwater said.
“I’ve been wanting to write something for Archie Comics forever and my favorite Archie stories have always been those weird crossovers like ‘Archie meets the Punisher’ and ‘Archie meets KISS,’” he said. “I thought, ‘Archie meets Glee’ would be a great crossover since they’re both set in high schools, they’re both optimistic, they both involve singing.”
“Those have reintroduced a lot of people back to ‘Archie,’” Goldwater said. “And it’s opened a whole new world of people coming to ‘Archie’ for the first time, too.”
“‘Glee’ is courageous in their story lines and how they represent their characters, how they represent the high school situation,” he said, noting that it’s similar in the world of Archie, too.
