Archie's 75th Anniversary Makeover to 
Include New Comics, TV Cartoon, and More
[Source: ToonZone.net] The New York Times covers plans for a makeover of the renowned perpetual comic book teenager Archie Andrews, with parent company Archie Comic Publications using the character’s 75th anniversary in print as an opportunity to update the character. A new comic book will be launched with writer Mark Waid pairing with artist Fiona Staples, building on earlier efforts by Chief Creative Officer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa including Life With Archie (which explored the character and his friends living their lives as adults), Afterlife With Archie (in which the idyllic town of Riverdale is overrun with zombies), and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (which injects a healthy amount of darkness to the titular teenage witch). The article also notes other initiatives, including a surreal one-hour drama for Fox titled Riverdale, a movie, an animated TV series, and theme park rides.
