Archie Comics Announces SDCC 2016 Panels, Signings & Exclusives

Archie_Comics_Logo_011Press Release:

Archie Comics, the acclaimed and bestselling comic book publisher that is home to some of the best-known pop culture creations in the world, including Archie, Jughead, Betty & Veronica, Josie & The Pussycats, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, and the hit AFTERLIFE WITH ARCHIE series, today unveiled plans for this year’s Comic-Con International: San Diego – timed to the launch of an all-new BETTY & VERONICA #1 from comic book legend Adam Hughes.

BETTY & VERONICA #1, hitting comic book shops and digital storefronts on Wednesday, July 20 – the same day doors open on Comic-Con International: San Diego 2016 – continues the stellar ‘New Riverdale’ relaunch of the beloved Archie Comics properties that began last year with the now-historic ARCHIE #1 by writer Mark Waid and artist Fiona Staples.

 “We treat every New Riverdale launch like a special, monumental event – as these amazing characters deserve,” said Jon Goldwater, Archie Comics Publisher/CEO. “Adam Hughes is the perfect person to welcome a new BETTY & VERONICA #1 into the world with a story that’s beautifully illustrated, witty and about the most important friendship in comics. What better place to pull back the curtain on this book than Comic-Con? It’s going to be an epic show for Archie. As always, we come in strong and ready to engage with our fans and community.”

This year’s Comic-Con will also feature the first public screenings of the pilot episode of the new Archie Comics-based drama ‘Riverdale’, from Warner Brothers Productions, set to debut on The CW in early 2017. A special ‘Riverdale’ panel will take place on Saturday featuring appearances by cast members including key cast members and crew. Fans will be able to get their first look at the subversive and modern take on the Archie Comics characters.

The relaunch of BETTY & VERONICA sets the stage for an amazing week of panels, giveaways, exclusives, and announcements at the biggest pop culture event in the world, Comic-Con International: San Diego 2016 – including a convention-exclusive cover to BETTY & VERONICA #1 by Adam Hughes and a special throwback cover for the fan-favorite SONIC: MEGA DRIVE one-shot.

Archie Comics will have three must-see panels this year including a spotlight on Archie Comics Chief Creative Officer, Archie Horror writer, and ‘Riverdale’ Executive Producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, a 75th anniversary panel featuring top Archie Comics talent, and a special ‘Riverdale’ panel featuring the cast of the new live-action drama series debuting on The CW in 2017.

CA – Down the Darkest Street Signing

000000000000_Alex Segura

Author Alex Segura appears at Mysterious Galaxy Books on Monday, July 25, 2016 at 6:00 PM to sign his new novel Down the Darkest Street.

About the book:
Pete Fernandez should be dead. His life — professional and personal — is in ruins. His best friend is dead. His newspaper career is past tense. His ex is staying with him as her own marriage crumbles. On top of that, the former journalist finds himself in the eye of a dangerous storm; investigating a missing girl with an unexpected partner and inching closer and closer to a vicious, calculating killer cutting a swath of blood across Miami — while at the same time battling his own personal demons that refuse to be silenced.

Down the Darkest Street, the hard-boiled sequel to Alex Segura’s acclaimed debut, Silent City, tells a tale of redemption, survival and the sordid backstreets of Miami — while asking the question that many are too scared to answer: When faced with pure darkness, would you fold or fight?

About the Author:
Alex Segura is a novelist and comic book writer. He is the author of the Miami crime novel SILENT CITY, the first in a series featuring Pete Fernandez. SILENT CITY and its sequel, DOWN THE DARKEST STREET, out this year via Polis Books. He has also written a number of comic books, including the best-selling and critically acclaimed ARCHIE MEETS KISS storyline, the “Occupy Riverdale” story and the upcoming ARCHIE MEETS RAMONES. He lives in New York with his wife. He is a Miami native.
