Archie Comics and Spotify have announced a partnership to turn their comics into a video series.
The six-episode series is based on the Archie comic from 2015, written by Mark Waid and artists Fiona Staples, Annie Wu and Veronica Fish.
“Archie has always been about trying to find new ways to get comics to fans and readers,” said Archie Comics Publisher/CEO Jon Goldwater. “And when the opportunity to work with Spotify arose, it was a perfect match. Being able to reposition these modern classics for new readers in this unique, motion comic format makes perfect sense and we can’t wait for fans to experience these beloved Archie stories in a new way.”
Spotlight Archie – The New Riverdale is created by Madefire, which specializes in digital and motion comics.
Watch the episodes now on Spotify. The comics are viewable on Spotify’s mobile app and desktop app.
