Batman 66 Meets Archie? Betty And Veronica And Harley??


The other day Bleeding Cool ran the word that DC Comics and Archie were planning a series of crossover comics. Both companies have been crossing over with all sorts of projects with other characters, it was about time.

I have been told of two titles. Treat this, of course, as rumour.

The first is

Betty and Veronica And Harley.

Quinn, obviously. No creatives but can we hope for Amanda Connor?

The second is Batman 66 Meets Archie, I understand to be written by Mark Waid.

Waid had sworn off DC Comics after conflict with DC editorial, specifically Dan DiDio. The story is that this came to a peak after he was hired and fired on his dream job, a Superman monthly comic, in a matter of days. But here, he would be writing for Archie Comics.

In a similar fashion, Andy Mangels, long banned from writing Wonder Woman for DC Comics, was able to write her for Dynamite, as part of a crossover between Wonder Woman 77 and Bionic Woman.

Who knows? Maybe Renae De Liz and Ray Dillon could pitch a Legend Of Wonder Woman And The Pussycats book…
