Four-part series planned from Archie Comics following deal with Fox Consumer Products.
Leading children's comic book publisher, Archie Comics has joined up with Fox Consumer Products to launch a special 'Archie Meets Glee' series.
The four-part comic book storyline will bring the characters from the hit TV series face to face with pop culture characters such as Archie, Betty and Veronica, Jughead, Sabrina the Teenage Witch and Josie and the Pussycats.
The story is expected to kick off in 2013.
The storyline - which will run as part of the Archie title - will be written by Glee writer, comic book scribe and playwright Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and illustrated by artist, Dan Parent.
"The Glee collaboration with Archie opens up new avenues to explore with these characters," said Jeffrey Godsick, president of FCP. "Roberto's involvement coming directly from the show ensures for the loyal Glee fans that the storylines will be authentic but with a new twist."
