For the first time in 75 years, Archie Comics is rebooting their franchise and reintroducing their ginger hero to a new generation. Archie #1 resets Riverdale in the 21st century and features a disturbingly yummy Archie. You know you’re thinking it, too. Look at him. Sure, he’s still jailbait, but he’s just a hop, skip, and a jump away from being one of Chi Chi LaRue‘s boys.
You won’t be able to get your hands on this new comic until it hits stores on July 8th, but in the meantime, MTV News has these exclusive variant covers for you from award-winning artists all over the comics industry, like Francesco Francavilla (“Afterlife with Archie”), Robert Hack (“The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina”), and Chip Zdarsky (who’s currently writing “Howard the Duck,” by the way).
