Archie and his pals are back in India, as Comic-Con India enters into a first-of-its-kind comic book collaboration with Archie Comics to create an original story for fans of Comic Con. Titled Archie in the Incredible Comic Con India, the story set in contemporary times, features the Riverdale gang in India, indulging in fun-filled adventures at Comic Con. 

From cosplay to comics, to selfies and merch shopping; Archie, Jughead, Reggie, Betty, and Veronica soak in the complete Comic Con experience. The comic book has been created by a creative team at Comic Con India along with leading artists and writers from the house of Archie Comics – Dan Parent (Cover), Bill Golliher (Script & Comic Art), Jack Morelli (Lettering) and Glenn Whitmore (Color).

The limited-edition comic book will be provided to every member/fan/audience visiting Comic Con India shows in 2019 in the cities of Bengaluru, Mumbai, Delhi and Ahmedabad.

Jatin Varma, founder, Comic Con India said, “The launch of this limited edition comic book intends to reignite the ‘American Dreams’ of Indian pop culture enthusiasts. The book will be something that audiences would love to possess for a very long time. It is an earnest effort by Comic Con India to give back to its fans for all the love and support they have been showing for more than a decade to India’s greatest pop culture experience. This is also the 80th year of Archie Comics, making it the perfect opportunity to celebrate the series that has been loved by generations in India — and is still hugely popular.”

Created in 1941, by publisher John L Goldwater, writer Vic Bloom, and artist Bob Montana, Archie Andrews, the main protagonist has always been a character of adaptable tissues. The character has gained immense popularity in Australia, India and parts of Japan for its iconic nature and the ability to absorb and reflect cultural aspirations across time and space.
