Archie Comics has just announced a $350,000 campaign to fund the reboot, which, if successful, would be the biggest crowdfunded comic book project yet (see a list of successful comic initiatives here). There is a “retailer level” pledge for $750 that includes 10 copies of the Archie #1 Exclusive Kickstarter Variant, plus a full page advertisement for the store in "one/all" of Archie’s titles (for one month).
