New York, NY (October 18, 2010): Archie Comics’ Veronica #202–the debut issue for Archie Comics’ new character, Kevin Keller–SOLD OUT only two weeks after it hit stores last month. Now, with more and more fans scrambling to get the latest comic books, Archie Comics is proud to announce that four more issues have SOLD-OUT.
“Things have changed at Archie Comics,” stated Jon Goldwater, Co-CEO of Archie Comics. “The new Archie Comics is about being current and taking risks to do something great, and people are absolutely loving it!”
So far, additional SOLD-OUT issues include The Man from R.I.V.E.R.D.A.L.E.–a spy thriller story introducing Archie’s secret agent cousin, Andy Andrews–and Riverdale Shore, parodying the hottest reality show today, Jersey Shore. Also SOLD-OUT is the two-part Twilite series that parodies the mega-hit Twilight.
Even bigger ventures are on the horizon as projects to bring back Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Katy Keene, Cosmo the Merry Martian, Jinx, Young Salem, Archie Babies and Josie and the Pussycats come together. Already in the works are the adventures of hardboiled detective Sam Hill which will be brought back under the revived historical Archie Comics imprint, Double Action.
Archie Comics’ fan base is expanding rapidly both locally and worldwide. At last week’s New York Comic Con the Archie Comics booth was overflowing with fans excited to get their hands on the hottest issues from Archie Comics. The demand for Archie Comics became so much that the majority of publications stocked at the convention were sold midway through the convention.
Also, an “Overseas” option added to The Archie Comic Shop at ArchieComics.com back in August has enabled international shipping on almost all Archie Comics products. Fans worldwide now have more options than ever to access their favorite comic book characters.
