With the successful re-launch of the Archie series by Mark Waid and Fiona Staples, the publisher is announcing that Hawkeye and Black Canary artist Annie Wu will take on the art chores for issue #4 while Veronica Fish will handle issues #5 and #6. Fish gained notice with the release of her promotional image for Riverdale, a television series in development on the CW.
"Annie has the perfect handle on these characters and we're lucky to have her come in for a special, one-issue story," said Archie Comics President Mike Pellerito. "Annie's a unique and versatile talent and really the perfect person to step in and showcase these characters in a new way, while still holding true to the foundation Fiona put in place."
"Veronica's a real hidden gem," Pellerito said. "Mark my words – she'll be a star before she's done working on these two issues."
Staples will continue on the series through issue #3 with Wu's issue coming out in November.
