New Creative Team, Legacy Numbering
Posted by Betsy Gomez on July 10, 2018 @ 8:11 pm CT
The longest running series in the Archie Comics stable will be written by Nick Spencer (Captain America, Morning Glories) and drawn by Marguerite Sauvage (Faith, DC Bombshells), who will take over after Mark Waid’s run ends on issue #32. The title is also returning to legacy numbering, with Spencer and Sauvage’s #700 picking up a several months after the events of Waid’s storyline.
Waid won’t be leaving Riverdale behind entirely. He will take Archie and the crew back in time in Archie: 1941, which bows on September 12 (see "Preview: Riverdale Takes A Step Back In Time In 'Archie: 1941'").
