ARCHIE AND SABRINA arrives in May from Nick Spencer and Sandy Jarrell
The top-secret couple of the year are set to finally make their public debut! Starting with May's ARCHIE #705, Archie and Sabrina are taking their relationship public and the series will be retitled ARCHIE AND SABRINA to celebrate the occasion.
Fans of the hit shows Chilling Adventures of Sabrina on Netflix and Riverdale on The CW have been clamoring for a meet-up between the two worlds and it's been secretly happening in the pages of ARCHIE ever since writer Nick Spencer took over with the monumental issue #700. In the new storyline, this historic budding romance will be out in the open for the first time, brought to life by artist Sandy Jarrell, colorist Matt Herms,and letterer Jack Morelli.
"The biggest revelation from Nick's first arc was that Archie and Sabrina were a couple -- which got everyone talking and set up a new, wholly original status quo," said Archie Comics Co-President Alex Segura. "But how'd we get there? What are the repercussions? We'll see that as Sandy and Nick roll out their second arc, and it made sense to have the title reflect that -- showcasing two of the company's biggest characters in one, must-read title."
Archie #705 will hit comic shops and digital retailers this May.
