The Women of Dynamite Meet the Women of Riverdale

Dynamite Entertainment is delivering one of the most unexpected and exciting crossover of the year…Red Sonja and Vampirella Meet Betty and Veronica

Dynamite’s first ever crossover with Archie Comics could not be any bigger. The flagship Women of Dynamite come face to face with Riverdale’s leading ladies to solve a string of paranormal, unsolved murders. When Drakulon and Hyrkania drop off their famous vampire hunter and sword-wielding barbarian into the small, sleepy town something is surely afoot.

Amy Chu returns to the fiery-haired She-Devil to write even more of a fish out of water tale than her fan favorite Worlds Away arc. Joining her on the art side is Maria Laura Sanapo who just drew theVampirella Valentine’s Day Special. Together these two women will chronicle the incomparable charm of their four leading ladies.

Fay Dalton kicks things off with her painterly style perfectly accentuating the crimson mane of Sonja and the teenage pep of the Riverdale girls in the locker room. Also represented are Archie Horror legends Francesco Francavilla, Robert Hack, and Laura Braga. Paulina Ganucheau brings her always adorable style with a cover featuring fashionable reinterpretations for Red Sonja and Vampirella’s timeless costumes. Dynamite continues its tradition of fun cosplay covers with women portraying the four heroines for this series. Last but certainly not least, no series starring the Archie characters would be complete without a contribution from the legendary Dan Parent, who has written and drawn everyone’s favorite teens for over 30 years!
