Archie Comics Launches Kickstarter Campaign

By Maryann Yin 

The executives behind Archie Comics have launched a campaign on Kickstarter. The team has set a fundraising goal of $350,000.

The money will go towards the development of three new series: Jughead, Betty & Veronica, and Life With Kevin. We’ve embedded a video about the project above.

Co-CEO Jon Goldwater gave this statement in the press release: “We’re not flush with corporate cash like Marvel or DC. But we’re also not afraid to take calculated risks. With this Kickstarter, fans have the chance to get in on the ground floor of an exciting and forward-thinking initiative. Fans can help build a New Riverdale, brick-by-brick. We’ve put together a stellar lineup of titles — featuring the best and the brightest creators working on our top characters.”
