ARCHIE #700-708 (Nick Spencer, collectif)

L’actuelle série Archie, scénarisée par Mark Waid depuis 2015, s’arrête ce mois-ci au numéro 32.
L’éditeur relancera le titre cet automne, en reprenant l’ancienne numérotation (qui cumulera les 666 numéros de la première série et les 32 de la suivante). En octobre, Archie Comics sortira donc Archie #699, un épisode spécial qui récapitulera les événements importants du run de Mark Waid. Puis le scénariste Nick Spencer (Captain America, Amazing Spider-Man…) prendra la relève au #700, accompagné par Marguerite Sauvage (Faith) aux dessins.

Nick Spencer : « Getting to write Archie is more than a dream come true for me. I’ve loved reading the exploits of the whole Riverdale gang my entire life, and getting to now tell their stories myself is a real honor. And launching with a milestone 700th issue! It doesn’t get better than that. Well, it does actually – I’m working with Marguerite Sauvage, one of the best artists in comics!
Everyone involved in this project has such a passion for these characters, and it’s our sincere hope to honor the legacy of what’s come before while moving boldly into the future with twists and surprises like you’ve never seen before! »
