Archie Comics and Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products have teamed up for an “Archie Meets Glee” comic book crossover, set to kick off in 2013.
The four-part comic book storyline will bring the cast of the Fox TV series face-to-face with Archie and the gang in a parallel universe where groups of teens often break out in song.
The plot of the comics will be written by “Glee” producer and writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.
“The Glee collaboration with Archie opens up new avenues to explore with these characters,” says Jeffrey Godsick, president, Fox Consumer Products. “Roberto’s involvement, coming directly from the show, ensures for the loyal Glee fans that the storylines will be authentic but with a new twist.”
The comic books will be available in print and digitally.
"I've been wanting to write something for Archie Comics forever, and my favorite Archie stories have always been those weird crossovers like 'Archie Meets the Punisher,' and 'Archie Meets KISS,'” says Aguirre-Sacasa. “I thought, ‘Archie Meets Glee’ would be a great crossover since they're both set in high schools, they're both optimistic, they both involve singing."
