'Glee' and 'Archie' bridge comics, TV in crossover
PHILADELPHIA (AP) -
Blaine Anderson and Kevin Keller? Betty Cooper and Noah Puckerman?
Things are not as they usually are in the halls of William McKinley and Riverdale high schools.
And that's just the way it should be, says Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa. He's a "Glee" writer who penned a four-issue story arc for "Archie Comics," a crossover crash that blends the snark of the TV show's McKinley High and the long-standing wholesomeness of Archie, Jughead, Betty and other Riverdale denizens.
The two worlds combine this week in the pages of "Archie Comics" No. 64, a story that extends through issue 644.
Show creator Ryan Murphy calls "Archie Meets Glee" a story that honors and celebrates "the two worlds. Not just their similarities, but their differences."
