Archie and Riverdale Go to War in Archie 1941

Archie Andrews and the gang have seen it all since the characters made their comics debut in 1941, and this fall they’re going back to their roots in a five-issue mini-series set in Riverdale during World War II – Archie 1941.

Written by comics legend Mark Waid with longtime collaborators co-writer Brian Augustyn and artist Peter Krause with colors by Kelly Fitzpatrick and letters by Jack Morelli, Archie 1941 finds Riverdale dealing with the impact of the impending conflict on the small town and in the personal lives of Archie, Betty, Veronica, Jughead, and Reggie Mantle.

Lending his signature style to the iconic Archie Comics characters, Krause has added a realistic touch to the teens fans have loved for generations. “How would Archie and the gang look in 1941? That is my responsibility, and my honor,” he added. “I’ve had great fun going through reprints of Sears catalogs and diving into online photo troves. Along with great colors by Kelly Fitzpatrick and wonderful lettering by Jack Morelli, we’ve done our darnedest to make it all look good.”

The mini-series will allow fans a chance to see the real-world consequences and drama of the war through the eyes of some familiar faces, but with the humor, heart, milkshakes, and dates that come with any Riverdale tale.

Archie 1941 #1 hits comic shops and digital platforms September 12, 2018and features variant covers by Sanya Anwar, Francesco Francavilla, Dave Johnson, and Aaron Lopresti.
