SuperF*ckers Forever? We wish! New Mini Series Launches in August

Here’s the worst thing about Top Shelf/IDW announcing its new series, SuperF*ckers Forever: it’s a misleading title. Because it’s not “forever,” it’s only a five-issue mini. Dammit.  A mere five issues of Jack Krak, Grotessa, Grotus, Computer Fist and all the rest of tthe dysfunctional, drug-addled, self-indulgent, indifferent-to-crime, immature, grotesque and hilarious cast that sprung from writer/artist James Kochalka’s innovative brain.

Riverdale: Archie’s Return to TV Boasts Stars of Tomorrow and Yesteryear

Archie, Jughead, Betty, Veronica & the rest of the gang from Riverdale have been in the funnybooks for 75 years. But characters from Archie Comics also have a very rich television history — a memorable cartoon starring Archie and friends, another starring Josie and the Pussycats; a live-action hit concerning Sabrina the Teenage Witch, and more.

Now, even as the Archie Comics line has been undergoing a modern refresh by writers Mark Waid, Chip Zdarsky and a team of talented artists (including Fiona Staples, Erica Henderson, and Veronica Fish), there’s another modern take on Archie’s characters heading for a pilot on The CW. The one-hour drama is to be written by Archie Comics Chief Creative Officer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (also behind comics including Afterlife with Archie, and a writer on television shows including  ‘Glee’). And it seems some of the stars are a pleasant blast from television’s past.
