Archie Comics, long known for
relatively innocent, Comics Code approved titles such as Archie, Betty and Veronica,
and Jughead, has announced… Spectrum Comics… that will offer non Code
approved superhero and adventure titles in addition to new creator owned comics.
The Spectrum line will
first overhaul Archie's existing company owned characters, formerly published
under several now defunct labels, which have
lain dormant for the last six years or more. Well known writers Len Wein and
Steve Engelhart have revamped the Hangman and the Fly
respectively, the two titles that will launch Spectrum later this summer.
Contracts are pending for the production of new versions of The
Jaguar, The Fox Mr. Justice, and The Shield.
