Rachel Berry will find yet another medium to embody and annoy thanks to an announcement made by Archie Comics ahead of Comic-Con, which starts Wednesday in San Diego. Details follow.
Though the Glee train has slowed somewhat with stalled ratings, Archie Comics, home of Kevin Keller, co-CEO John Goldwater has enough faith in the Fox series to launch a comic book crossover slated to hit stands in 2013.
Yahoo! News reports:
Goldwater unveiled the planned collaboration — dubbed "Archie Meets Glee" — on Monday, ahead of Wednesday's start of Comic-Con in San Diego.
He said the crossover between the Fox show and the comic book is set for late this year or in early 2013, and is being written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, one of the television show's writers. It features multiple characters from the long-running comic book and the Fox show now in its third year. Dan Parent is illustrating the story.
"I've become friendly with Roberto — he's just a genius writer," said Goldwater, who met the playwright last year at New York Comic Con when he stopped by Archie Comic Publications Inc.'s booth. "He and I were shooting the breeze."
That visit sparked a friendship and, ultimately, the idea for the crossover.
"It turns out he's been a fan of Archie for years. His most recent Halloween costume? He was dressed as Archie!" Goldwater said.
Possible story lines remain shrouded in mystery for now, but Goldwater hints they might involve parallel dimensions (which gives us just enough reason to hold our breath for an affair between Kevin Keller and Blaine!).
