Chew on this! Archie Comics is bringing their weekly tales from social media together for a big moment in the spotlight in publishing its first-ever webcomic collection, Bite Sized Archie Vol. 1. Filled with hysterical jokes, insightful commentary, and adorable artwork, the collection features Archie and the gang from Riverdale (and beyond!), as they take a bite out of pop culture. These relevant and sometimes irreverent tales send Archie and pals head-first into modern culture, allowing one of the most iconic entities in Americana to flawlessly assimilate (and comment!) on today’s most meme-worthy trends and social savvy topics. The webcomic collection features the first full year of stories from writer Ron Cacace and artist Vincent Lovallo as they originally appeared on Archie Comics’ social media platforms, along with bonus sketches and a behind-the-scenes look at the creative process.
