Archie Comics may have included a major continuity error in its latest comic, but that can probably be forgiven due to everything the publisher has been working on to get ready for this year’s New York Comic Con. The company is bringing exclusives, panels, and signings to the show, taking place October 4th to 7th at the Javitz Center in New York City.
Says Archie CEO Jon Goldwater:
New York Comic Con is always a special, monumental event for Archie Comics, and this year will be no exception. The company is firing on all cylinders, with the new Riverdale season, Sabrina Netflix launch and ARCHIE #700 revving up to close out the year in grand fashion. It’s a great time to be an Archie Comics fan
