August 2012 Solicits

Hey guys! Solicits for August are out and here are some awesome books I'm working on coming out from Archie Comics. Hope you check 'em out!!
“Archie Marries Veronica”
– Archie and Veronica butt heads when the married couple can’t see eye to eye on Archie’s job offer from Mr. Lodge’s business rival, Fred Mirth! Tempers flare when the typically laid-back Jughead discovers Ethel has a new flame in her life plus the strain of reality television begins to take its toll on reluctant star Betty. Is an onscreen meltdown just around the corner? Emotions are at an all-time high in Riverdale and yet all these personal dramas are soon to be dwarfed by the shocking news that one of the gang has been shot!
“Archie Marries Betty” – In Archie’s counter-part reality, the gang welcomes back an old friend in need of support during a trying time. Cheryl Blossom breaks the news of her cancer diagnoses in the most touching issue of Life with Archie yet, proving that in Riverdale, home is truly where the heart is!

NEW CRUSADERS: RISE OF THE HEROES #1Red Circle Comics presents “Ashes to Ashes” Part One: Our world demands heroes – a new generation must RISE! Over a decade ago, the super hero team known as The Mighty Crusaders did the impossible: they won. Successful in their battle against evil and finding they’d made the world a better place, the heroes settled down to the small town of Red Circle to start families, unwind and take a much-deserved rest.

They are our last, best hope. They are: THE NEW CRUSADERS!
