Archie Comics have continued doing the same thing for years yet what some don't realize is they're constantly mixing things up and adding new twists.
October's ARCHIE #648 will have a story written by DeFalco with a cover by Simonson. Fernando Ruiz will provide art for the interior. Both DeFalco and Simonson are known for their runs on THE MIGHT THOR over at Marvel. Award-winning colorist Laura Martin will provide the colors. DeFalco actually started out working at Archie before moving on to become the Editor-in-Chief at Marvel. This marks Simonson's first work for Archie.
Check out the variant cover by Simonson.
