Occupy Riverdale – It’s Happening, Here’s The Jill Thompson Art To Prove It (UPDATE)

This is the planned artwork for Archie Comics #635 in July, leaked to Bleeding Cool. As earlier rumoured, it will tell the story of the global protest against massively unequal redistrubution of wealth and power, under the title Occupy Riverdale, echoing the Occupy movements present around the world.

This continued the further progressive storylines from Archie of late that recently culminated in an interracial gay military wedding. This time Archie moves from social politics to economic ones.

And just as Betty and Veronica are devided over Archie, so here they are divided by being on the 99% or the 1%.

The cover has clearly been drawn and painted by Jill Thompson. Archie Comics did not reply to enquiries.

UPDATE: But other people have. The story will be written by ex-DC Comics staffer Alex Segura and drawn by Gisele Lagace.
