IDW is honoring Archie's 75th anniversary with a series of Archie-themed variant covers for some of its most popular titles.
“We have a long-standing and wonderful partnership with the great people at IDW,” said Archie Comics Publisher/CEO Jon Goldwater. “It makes perfect sense to team with them to celebrate this epic anniversary and invite so many beloved, timeless properties to the party.”
