Archie Comics Reveals Franken 9, Their New Digital-First Sci-Fi Series

What happens when an evil genius uses science to create a group of super powered, highly intelligent teenagers?

Franken 9 is a new sci-fi digital-first comic series by newcomers Jared Goldwater and Ryan Straughn and veteran artist Ryan Jampole featuring an eccentric and mysterious scientist whose experiments result in the creation of a new group of super-humans that will change the fate of the world forever.

Ostracized from the scientific community for his reanimation research, Dr. Lambda steals the brain of a dying genius to implant the minds of 9 homeless teens with his master plan for a new world order.

Newcomers Goldwater & Straughn join veteran comics artist Ryan Jampole on this new series blending together classic science fiction intrigue and bombastic superhero action. From super-powered organ transplants to time travel and everywhere in between, Franken 9 takes readers on a journey full of twists and turns with plenty of mad science.

Dr. Lambda has monstrous plans for his creations – will they follow along or forge their own path forward?

Issues of Franken 9 will be available to read on ComiXology and Amazon beginning November 22.
