Lucky attendees of San Diego Comic Con can head over to the Archie Comics booth (#1829) to pick up an exclusive poster for the Archie based The CW series Riverdale drawn by Afterlife with Archie artist Francesco Francavilla. Signed by the entire Riverdale cast, the posters will be available in limited quantities on Sunday morning.
The pilot episode of Riverdale will be screened for convention attendees on Saturday night.
Set in present day and based on the iconic Archie Comics characters, “Riverdale” is a surprising and subversive take on Archie, Betty, Veronica, and their friends, exploring the surrealism of small town life — the darkness and weirdness bubbling beneath Riverdale’s wholesome façade.
Riverdale stars KJ Apa, Lili Reinhart, Cole Sprouse, Ashleigh Murray, Madelaine Petsch, Camilia Mendes, Marisol Nichols, Madchen Amick and Luke Perry. The series is set to debut as a midseason replacement on The CW in 2017.
