Archie Comes to Webtoon with Big Ethel Energy
Archie Comics is partnering with Webtoon to collaborate and develop its next fan-favorite comic series, Big Ethel Energy. Featuring the talented works of writer Keryl Brown Ahmed and artist Siobhan Keenan, Big Ethel Energy showcases the Riverdale character as fans have never seen her before. The first three episodes of the series will launch exclusively on Webtoom on September 21, 2021 with new episodes of the series rolling out weekly on the platform.
The new series features a grown-up Ethel who is confident and carries her head high. With a fresh take on the classic Archie Comics character, Big Ethel Energy focuses on a story about coming into adulthood and finding inner strength, but also about the importance of growth, change, and forgiveness.
After graduating from Riverdale High, Ethel couldn’t get away from her hometown — and onto her chosen career path — fast enough. When the Mayor of Riverdale pays her handsomely to write a history of the city, she can’t wait to return to take down Archie, Jughead, Betty, Veronica, and all the other Riverdale natives who made her life hell all those years ago. The only thing she forgets to consider is… maybe they’ve all changed, too.
Check out the first 3 episodes of Big Ethel Energy on September 21 on Webtoon!
